MLC Seminar - How to buy your first home

  • Meyer Vanderberg Lawyers (map)

On 8 November, Michael Miller, a financial planner with MLC Advice Canberra, shared valuable advice with our members on how to buy your first home – and then pay that loan off! 
Michael began at the very first step to owning your own home: how to save for a deposit. He warned against ‘lifestyle creep’ – increasing your spending whenever your salary increases. But he also stressed the importance of deciding for yourself what purchases are absolutely essential, which might include that daily takeaway coffee!
Joining Michael were Andrew and Megan from Clear Cut Finance. As well as providing insight into the role of a mortgage broker, Andrew and Megan shared with members the A-Z of mortgages. From stamp duty and the first home owner grant to the difference between offset and redraw accounts, Andrew and Megan provided a wealth of information giving members much to consider.
We would like to thank Meyer Vandenberg for hosting this event. 
Michael Miller is a longstanding sponsor of the Women Lawyers Association. We are grateful for his generous sponsorship and ongoing support.
