Liberty & Shingirai
Born in Zimbabwe, Liberty believed Australia could provide a better environment for his young family and moved here in 2017. He works with the State Rail Authority and commutes into the city every day from Stanhope Gardens. In 2018 he began researching his dream of entering the property market and he found AffordAssist online.
Partnering with a Developer within their network, AffordAssist were able to present a variety of properties that matched Liberty’s buying range in Windsor, Schofields and Ropes Crossing. And while Liberty received conditional approval for a loan of $780,000, he opted to keep his Buying Range within $600,000, to benefit from the First Home Buyers Grant and waiving of Stamp Duty. Liberty’s savings of $10,000 were supplemented by the First Home Buyers Grant of $10,000 and placed in a trust account. AffordAssist then provided the agreement allowing Liberty to repay the balance of the deposit directly to the Developer. A Lending Partner who joined the network in 2019 proved to be the right match for Liberty’s Fast-Track.
