When Georgia and Brayden decided to buy their first home they weren’t sure where to begin. After reaching out to another financial institution, and being knocked back, they decided to contact The Mutual Bank.

“The Mutual Bank was recommended to us through two relatives who had been members for many years and spoke very highly of it,” said Georgia. “Most banks were not wanting to even discuss lending with us as we were first home buyers and COVID had just taken hold. We weren’t sure where we stood anymore, but then Kate at The Mutual Bank extended the olive branch to us and made buying our first home possible!”

Entering the property market for the first time can be overwhelming, but working with Kate and the team at The Mutual Bank helped Georgia and Brayden feel confident and informed throughout the process.

“The support and wealth of information provided to us by Kate and the crew of The Mutual Bank was our largest deciding factor to borrow through them. Kate helped us get pre-approval so we could walk into open homes confident of how much we wanted to spend. She also got us into the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme so we only needed a 5% deposit and didn’t need to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance,” Brayden said. 

“We LOVE our house,” concluded Georgia. “It’s such an amazing feeling coming home every day to something that is yours. We’ve never been happier with a bank!”
