At a minimum, it is best to aim for a 10% deposit as this will leave you with enough funds to cover stamp duty, conveyancing fees, and building and pest inspections.

If you buy a property with a 20% deposit, this will eliminate you have to pay LMI (lenders mortgage insurance)

The “right location” is different for every homebuyer, depending on their needs and wants.

It is best to start with the locations you know and would like to live in such as where your family has grown up and also where it’s convenient for you to travel to your place of work as well as a close commute to visit family and friends and from there you will know what your budget will allow you to purchase.

The best way to get know an area is to research it online, then go and check out the area in person such as checking out local shops and amenities.

Exploring a neighbourhood once you have done your research will help you to work out if you could happily live there.

Start by searching for properties online that grab your attention and make an effort to go to the open inspections. Talk to the agents not only about the house in particular but about the area. If the area is new to you it is best to keep an eye out for when you are commuting there an back to keep a note for traffic issues, construction sites, transport, shopping centres, parks and schools.

Once you have visited a number of properties that is when you will get a good feel for where the locations that you feel comfortable with.

When searching on www.realestate.com.au, click on the sold function and search for recent sales with the same features and location as the property you are interested in. Alternatively your broker will be able to provide you with in depth reports on specific suburbs as well as specific properties.

Yes, it is important to employ the services of a conveyancer/solicitor as they are an independent party that is employed for both the buying and selling of a property. They handle the settlement and title transfer process by ensuring that their client is meeting all legal obligations and ensuring the clients rights are protected during the time of this transaction. Both buyers and sellers need to employ and use the services of a professional due to legal obligations in respect to the Contract of Sale. It is a conveyancer’s job to take charge and do all the leg work in the buying/selling process.
If you are a qualified builder, engineer or architect then you are more than qualified to assess a property for faults. If you’re not, then a building inspection is a necessity and to be carried out by a professional in the field. A building inspection will help you uncover any structural faults with the property.

Properties may look fine but underneath what the everyday person cannot see, there may be structural faults, problems with the electrical wiring or plumbing, termite infestation or a number of other issues which can be expensive to fix.

You can buy a property with the help of a parent/parents, and this is known as a parental guarantee.

Guarantees are specific type of loan product/policy which is put in place to assist those with low/no deposits available to be able to purchase a property with the assistance of another party who has sufficient equity in a property.

If this is something of interest to you, it will be best to talk to your broker about this and they will be able to explain further, alternatively if you would like to read about this follow the link to an article on this website: http://fhber.com.au/2017/03/26/how-guarantees-work/
