How To Be Smart When Buying Your First Home

If you’re looking to buy your first home, you probably feel both excited and daunted at the prospect of making such an important decision for your future.

Fortunately, you now have access to a wealth of information online which can help you consider all the factors - and risks - involved in making this decision.

Selecting the right home and property for you means not only inspecting the house to ensure its quality, but also checking out the neighbourhood, the proximity of schools, amenities and public transport and the general trends for property in the area.

For first home buyers, finding the right home loan is just as important a decision.

Online mortgage calculators are great at giving you a general idea of how much you will need to save for a deposit, what your borrowing capacity is, what your monthly repayment amounts will be and how you could benefit from extra repayments.

If you want to take the next step and find out your specific potential as a borrower and which home loan solution is the best fit for you, you should talk to a mortgage broker.

Mortgage brokers are independent experts who can help you find the home loan that best suits your financial needs.
