My partner and I have recently signed a contract (subject to finance) to purchase our first home in one of Melbourne's middle ring suburbs. Our household income is circa $200K.
Purchase price is $580,000 less 58,000 deposit. So we are seeking a loan of $522,000. I understand this will attract LMI of approx 13K which we can pay up without getting it capitalized on to the loan.
We have about 95K in savings between us and $2K in debt which is minimal. No fancy cars, no living on credit cards.
I am a little nervous about the whole finance process. Our broker has advised that all should be fine.
I would love your opinion as to whether or not these numbers work?

You should be fine. They mostly care about income, savings and debts and you can tick all three boxes. I know when we were in a similar financial situation and went for a pre-approval amount the bank was willing to lend up to $700k from memory. Hopefully it works out the same for you
