Wanting to buy your first home but don’t know where to start? As a first home buyer you don't have to be an expert in buying property. We are here to help you.

PLANNING


GET SAVING


If you can afford it a bigger deposit is better, the less you borrow, the lower your repayments are. It is looked upon fondly if you can show that you can produce large savings.

FIRST HOME OWNERS GRANT


Stick to the facts when applying for a FHOG, if you’re not a genuine contender for the grant you could be asked to repay it, plus penalties. Do your research to fully understand the FHOG entitlements in your state or territory.

KNOW YOUR COST


The true cost of buying a home goes well beyond the purchase price. Things to consider include stamp duty, conveyancing, pest and building inspections, strata reports, loan fees, insurance and utilities.



GET YOUR LOAN


GET THE RIGHT LOAN


Not only are there hundreds of loans to choose from, some are marketed using names and descriptions that don’t really say much about the loan and how it works.

APPLY RIGHT


There’s a lot riding on your home loan application, and the more prepared you are, the more likely you’ll receive a thumbs up from a lender.

GET PRE–APPROVED


Get auction-ready with a conditional loan approval. Our home loan specialists will help you work out what loan is right for you – and can even start filling out your application.



BUYING YOUR HOME


AUCTION SAVVY


Auctions can offer big advantages – like the chance to secure your dream home at a price that truly reflects its market value. But successful buying at auction calls for some additional work behind the scenes, and knowing what you’re up against is crucial in mastering the auction game.

PREP YOUR CHEQUE


When you make the winning bid at an auction you immediately enter into a binding contract. There is no cooling off period (so it pays to have your home loan pre–approved). During this time it is expected that you pay a deposit – usually 10% of the sale price.

SETTLE UP


The average settlement period is between 4–6 weeks, and if you’re relocating to a new home it can be a busy period with plenty to plan for such as moving furniture, organising a new school for the kids and maybe even a new job.
