Securing a Home in Three Weeks: A Remarkable Real Estate Transaction


In the world of real estate, timing is often critical. And Brisbane continues to be a highly competitive market where properties are in demand and selling fast. A couple, already homeowners, decided it was time to upgrade to a larger property. Their strategy was to sell their existing home to boost their borrowing capacity for their dream residence. However, this seemingly straightforward plan took an unexpected turn when their purchase contract wasn’t subject to the sale, setting a tight three-week window for them to secure a new home loan.


The Challenge: An Urgent Need for a New Home Loan


Having successfully sold their initial property, the couple had found their ideal home and signed the contract without consulting their lender or solicitor. However, their lender was unable to approve the loan before the sale had settled, putting them in a precarious situation. With multiple backup offers already on the table for this property, the clock was ticking.


The Solution: The Astute Financial East Brisbane Team


In a race against time, Astute East Brisbane was able to assist and the couple engaged our award-winning mortgage broking team.


Despite the pressure cooker of circumstances, our mortgage brokers calmly and methodically guided the couple through the process, including determining the right lender and terms to pursue. We understood the nuances of the predicament and worked to ensure that the home loan would be secured within the three-week timeframe.


A Successful Outcome: Achieving the Impossible


Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Astute East Brisbane team, the couple's dream of upgrading to a larger property became a reality. The new home loan was secured just in the nick of time, minimizing the period during which the couple found themselves without a home.
