Nick and Sharnie's story

Nick and Sharnie's story

A bad credit rating and renting, we thought it was never going to be possible to secure our own home.

We had always dreamed of owning our own home but I had a bad credit rating when I was younger. 

After renting for so long, the time came yet again when our rent was put up, the house was not worth what they were asking us to pay. The hassle of moving from house to house and the ongoing maintenance that took forever to done, we decided renting was no longer for us. It was time for us to have the control and secure our own home.

We contacted Metricon to see what we could do.  We discussed our vision for our new home and factored in all the design elements we wanted in our new home. A house and land package was put forward that we wanted to move on but we need assistance with the finance. 

Metricon put us in contact with John Lipscomb from FinancePath and with his help and expertise the process was made easier. Not only did he take into consideration "the numbers" but also are plans for the future.

To achieve our goal, John explained the process clearly so we understood what was required from us now and in the future. Over a small amount of time and without breaking the budget we now have the finances for our house to be built in the next few months.

So now with big thanks to John at FinancePath, we now don't have to rent anymore, we have the luxury of doing what we like with the house to make it ours and live more comfortably.  We don't have to move again and we aren't paying someone else's mortgage. It will be our very own home. Without John and the team, our dream wouldn't have been possible or as easy.
