Atlas Wealth Launches New Australian Expat Mortgage Broker – Atlas Wealth Management is proud to announce the launch of Atlas Mortgages, a dedicated mortgage broker to assist Australian expats around the world secure a mortgage in Australia.
Australians living overseas looking to buy property in Australia are often faced with the wall of requirements stipulated by the banks and there is very little guidance provided by them to assist in this process.
“For many years Australians have found it difficult securing a mortgage as a Australian expat with a number of lending rule changes implemented by Australian banks and expats were struggling to find a professional that understood their circumstances as a non-resident” said James Ridley, Managing Director (APAC region) for Atlas Wealth Management.
Atlas Mortgages is part of the Atlas Wealth Management Group which is the leading provider of financial services to the Australian expat community in over 30 countries for the last 10 years. Atlas Mortgages will draw upon the skills, experience and resources that Atlas Wealth Management has developed to provide a tailored experience for Australian expats to make the process of arranging a home loan as easy and seamless as possible.
Jeremy Harper, who will lead the Atlas Mortgages team, draws upon his many years of experience in being a licensed mortgage broker combined with his own personal experience of living as a Australian expat in the United States for a number of years.
“I am very excited to be leading the Atlas Mortgages team as I have a complete understanding of the financial challenges that Australia expats face when trying to secure a mortgage having lived that life myself” said Jeremy Harper, director of Atlas Mortgages.
“Whilst there have been a number of lending policy changes made by the banks over the last couple of year this does not mean than an Australian expat can’t secure a mortgage, it just means you need to work with a professional who knows which bank to work with that suits your circumstances”.
With 30 Australian Lenders on our panel and over 500 Australian Mortgage products to choose from Atlas Mortgages is able to assist Australian expats from all walks of life, whether they are a salaried employer, business owner or investors.
“Over the past 5 years we have seen ANZ, Westpac and NAB, who have been the traditional expat mortgage and home loan providers, reduce their offering to Australian expats but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to secure a home loan if you earn a foreign income” said Brett Evans, Managing Director (EMEA region) for Atlas Wealth Management.
