Local grandparents secure their first home with the help of Cole Murray’s mortgage and insurance advisers.
With 30 grandkids and two of their children still living at home, grandparents John and Charmaine Blom needed it to be about family when it came to purchasing their first home.
The couple sought advice from Cole Murray initially around insurance and KiwiSaver, and subsequently we have been pleased to help them utilise their KiwiSaver money for their first home deposit, and secure them with a mortgage.
Theirs is a great story that shows you don’t have to be just starting out in life to get on the property ladder. With the help of schemes like KiwiSaver and the HomeStart grant home ownership is made achievable for many people who may have thought they didn’t have a chance.
Many thanks to the Bloms for sharing their experiences.
