The advantages of building a new home include the ability to customise the design and layout to suit your needs, the opportunity to choose modern and energy-efficient features, and the assurance of having a brand new, low-maintenance property.
We specialise in helping first home buyers build their dream homes sooner, and offer a range of house and land packages, as well as assistance with finance options and government grants.
The amount you should save before buying your first home will depend on various factors, such as the price of the property you are considering, the size of your deposit, and any additional costs associated with purchasing a home. It is generally recommended to save at least 20% of the purchase price as a deposit. However, many first home buyers have access to government schemes such as the Home Guarantee Scheme, which lowers the required deposit to 5%.
To determine how much you can safely spend on a house, you should consider your income, expenses, and financial goals. It is important to have a budget in place and to factor in additional costs such as mortgage repayments, insurance, and maintenance expenses.
We offer professional guidance to help you gain a thorough understanding of your ideal range, and ensure that you are not going over your limit.
Checking and polishing your credit before applying for a mortgage is important to ensure you have a good credit score. This can be done by reviewing your credit report, paying off any outstanding debts, and making sure all information on your credit report is accurate.
It is highly recommended to visit a home in person before buying it. This allows you to get a feel for the layout, size, and condition of the property. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns you may have.

To avoid common mistakes when searching for a house, it is important to do thorough research, set a realistic budget, work with a reputable team, get a professional inspection, and carefully review all documentation before making a decision.
It is generally recommended to get pre-approved for a mortgage before looking for a home. This will give you a clear understanding of your budget and will make the home buying process smoother.
Our first home buyer experts can help you through every step of the process.
To avoid making decisions based on emotion, it is important to stay focused on your budget and priorities. It can be helpful to create a checklist of must-haves and nice-to-haves, and to consult with a trusted advisor.
It is recommended to set aside around 1-3% of the home’s value annually for repairs and maintenance expenses. This will help cover any unexpected repairs or ongoing maintenance needs.
