    Home truths from first home buyers


    Q: How did you get a home loan, was it difficult? 

    It was pretty simple to be honest. Kind of emotionally draining, but really fulfilling. It was a learning curve. Yes. Classic emotional rollercoaster. 

    Q: What does the word home mean to you? 

    Home means, ah, geez. It means home, doesn't it, like. You literally sit on your lounge and you think, these walls are mine. And you can be in your pyjamas all day. It brings up warm feelings. I love the achievement. This is mine and this is going to be mine for a while.

    I think it's also just a sense of pride, you're a home owner. 

    It's a real accomplishment though, like to be able to call somewhere your home. Things you're sometimes the most scared about end up being fine.

    About the author

    • Raymond

      Raymond A Ram is the RAMbassador for RAMS Financial Group. Raymond works with the RAMS team to bring simple, helpful and expert information on home loans and savings accounts to life with his down to earth and cheeky personality. He enjoys seeing everyday Australians turn their dreams of saving for a goal or getting into a home a reality. 

      Growing up in Goulburn, NSW, Raymond was brought up with good old-fashioned Aussie values of hard work and a fair go. It soon became apparent that Raymond wasn't content for the conventional path of grazing, producing the very best wool, and finding a nice sheep to settle down with. So it wasn't long before his passion for performing and his talent as a likeable larrikin shone through - landing him a few roles such as 'RAMlet'. He was even tipped to play RAM-bo at one point but chose to become star of the small screen instead as RAMbassador for RAMS. He now finds this role so much more rewarding.
