Our dedicated education program for First Home Buyers

Buying your first home can feel like a scary and massive commitment and hard to navigate the minefield of things to consider before committing to spending your life savings on a place to call your own.


Too many first time house hunters waste thousands of dollars on building inspections, lawyers fees or even hundreds of thousands in lost opportunity on a seemingly minor issue related to a property’s title.


Confidence and knowledge are crucial for success as first home buyers.


Lucia Xiao is passionate about helping Kiwis into homeownership. It’s our companies driving vision.

Property Tour
Michaela and Tyler

Success story from one of our many first home buyers

Despite being first home buyers, Tyler and Michaela purchased their dream home. They took our advice on board and secured the property which they initially thought it would be over their budget, backing on to Tyler’s golf club.


“Exactly two months after attending an initial workshop with Lucia, my partner and I purchased our first home in Swanson, Auckland. We went from being told by the bank that we could purchase a $720k property, to being able to afford over a million dollars thanks to the Finax team. We’ve learnt so much about finances, mortgages and investment over the last two months and are excited to learn even more as we begin the development process on our new home. While we have just secured our first property, it definitely won’t be the last.”
