Buying your first home can be scary. We’ll hold your hand.

Buying a house is scary full stop. Buying your first home is another story altogether. How can you be sure you know everything you’re supposed to? Deposits, lenders mortgage insurance, settlement dates, comparison rates, (insert other lending jargon you don’t understand here), the list is endless! That's why choosing a transparent and helpful financial institution can make all the difference when it comes to purchasing your first home.

We've created a list of handy First Home Buyer FAQs and helpful calculators to help give you a good idea of your borrowing power, what your repayments would be (there's even a calculator to determine how much you'd save just by making additional repayments). Whatever your question, query or concern, we're here to help; we'll be there each and every step of the way along your home buying journey.

    The Mac gave me the chance to purchase a place that I enjoy so much! Each morning I look from the window and enjoy the view, the beautiful trees, the flowers, the birds singing around us. I feel so grateful to The Mac for making it possible

    Over the past 26 years we have called upon The Mac each time we needed help. The Mac has been fantastic to deal with, even though we no longer have a mortgage they are still our preferred bank. I would recommend them to everyone. - William
