Meet the team

This wouldn’t have been possible without Liston Newton Advisory to assist with our business planning, providing proactive advice and ensuring our accounts were always compliant in a complex and volatile industry.

Liston Newton's Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position. Their strategies turned our business from making a loss, to recording a 6-month net profit of 36 per cent. And we are now on track to show a 240 per cent increase in turnover over the next financial year.

Liston Newton helped us move our accounting over to Xero. Their Accountant managed the set up and training so we felt comfortable with the software. We now have all our processes streamlined which gives us improved visibility of our business performance. This has allowed us to open 2 more stores without a significant increase in administration effort.

Our case studies

Frequently asked questions

How much do I need to deposit?

Generally, most lenders require a 20 per cent deposit, while some lenders will allow you to go down to a 15 per cent deposit.

If you only wish to have a 10 per cent or 5 per cent deposit, you may need to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI). LMI is an additional fee that is paid to a third-party insurer. Often this fee can be added to the loan.

You also need to factor in bank fees, legal fees, and stamp duty.

How do I get my mortgage down faster?

If you want to repay you mortgage as fast as possible, there are a number of things you can do, including:

  • Repay your loan fortnightly rather than monthly, this will save interest over the life of the loan.
  • Make additional payments.
  • If you have a variable loan, you can use an offset account to place your savings into. This will offset the interest on your loan and will reduce interest charges.
  • Look for the lowest rate possible.
Will the banks lend to me?

Banks will look at a number of factors when considering any finance application, including:

  • Your employment
  • Your cash savings
  • Your business financials if you are self-employed
  • Your credit history
  • How much other debt you have outstanding

Often with the help of a professional, you can negotiate your way into a loan which is appropriate for your circumstances.

What is stamp duty?

Stamp duty is a type of tax that is paid when you purchase real estate in Australia. The amount of stamp duty you pay depends on the state you live in, it's generally between 5 and 5.5 per cent.

As a first home buyer you may be exempt from stamp duty or eligible for a stamp duty discount. For newly built homes and apartments, the stamp duty is often waived.

How much can I borrow?

This depends on your savings. Generally, you can borrow between 80 and 95 per cent of the value of the property you are purchasing. That means you need to have the remaining amount in savings.

You will also be assessed on your ability to service the loan. Serviceability is measured on how much income you earn each year, your expenditure and also any other outstanding debts.
