You get a 3 for 2 deal in this episode as Georgie and Pierce are joined by Austin from Mortgages for Actors, the original, performing arts and entertainment-specific, dedicated mortgage advice service. Austin is a Financial Advisor to the Entertainment Industry specialising in Life Insurance, Mortgages and Wills.
Georgie and Pierce get the financial lowdown from Austin on what services Mortgages for Actors can offer to all types of jobs not only in acting but all across the entertainment industry, how one gets a mortgage, what information needs to be provided, what lenders like to see and be assured of and how to protect your house and mortgage once it has been achieved.
‘We saw that there were a lot of problems in the entertainment field especially since lockdown happened and all the income really struggled to come in.’-Austin
‘I think I speak for a lot of actors when I say the thought of something like home ownership seems so off the table because no one’s ever going to give you any kind of mortgage.’-Pierce
‘Lenders really do want to lend but they are very restricted by the people that fund them.’-Austin
‘Obviously, I can’t tell you to work more because every actor in the world wants more work but the more consistent you are the easier it is to show someone how much you earn.’-Austin
‘We try and touch on everything so you know that it’s there. Why not spend that extra bit of money to insure yourselves really well so that if anything happens you’re still spending every month that you thought you were anyway?’-Austin
