With a strong understanding of Australia’s property market, the current economic climate and different loan products, the residential lending department at Podium Financial Services is well equipped to assist a range of clients with different residential lending needs.
The biggest advantage of choosing a broker over a bank is choice. While a banker only has access to one bank’s products, at Podium Financial Services we have access to 27 lenders with 100-plus products available. We pride ourselves on our high level of product knowledge and work confidently knowing that we will find the most suitable product for each individual client.
Clients can rest assured that Podium Financial Services manages the whole home loan application process from the initial enquiry to the settlement of the loan. This relieves clients of the stress associated with dealing with lenders, and ensures a more positive experience.
Provided we have all the relevant and correct information upon application, we can provide an answer on what lenders will approve your residential loan and at what rate within 24 hours*. Once your application is approved the entire loan process can be completed in 20 to 30 days**.
Podium Financial Services provides all clients with ongoing support, even after the loan application is approved and finalised. Clients can have a piece of mind knowing that we are constantly monitoring the market and comparing it to your current loan and lender. This ensures that you are always provided with the most current and suitable solution for your circumstances.
For most customers, our service is obligation free. Whether a new customer chooses to use us or not, Podium Financial Services will offer a review of their current situation, with no obligation.
To protect Australian consumers, our industry is regulated and regularly policed by the ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission) to ensure each customer is provided with an appropriate product and level of service.
While this list is by no means exhaustive, below are a few examples of how we can either help you with your next purchase or your existing loan, saving you time, money and any associated pressures.
