Purchasing a property

Finding the right property and making all the arrangements to buy it can take time. It’s a big financial decision so it’s important to look at as many properties as possible and make the right choice. It’s also a good idea to speak with property experts such as real estate agents, bankers and mortgage brokers.

Before buying a home you should:

  • consider the financial costs involved
  • find the right lender and home loan
  • identify where you’d like to buy
  • find the right house
  • arrange building inspections
  • think about how you’ll repay the home loan.

Buying your first home

Some questions you may wish to consider include:

  • Am I better off renting than buying?
  • How much can I borrow?
  • How much deposit will I need?
  • What additional costs will I be up for when I buy a place of my own?
  • Are concessions for first homebuyers?
  • What should I do with my money while I try to accumulate a bigger deposit?
  • What types of loans are available?
  • What should I look for in a loan?
  • How do I find the right mortgage for me?

  • Work out how much you can borrow based on current financial capacity
