Buying your family home
Before buying a home you should:
- Consider the financial costs involved.
- Find the right lender and home loan.
- Arrange building inspections.
- Think about how you’ll repay the home loan.
- 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 there concessions available 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?
Buying an Investment property
- What is the difference between positive and negative gearing?
- How should I structure my repayments?
- Should the interest rate be fixed, variable or a combination?
- Should I pay Principal and Interest, or pay Interest only on my investment property?
- Can I buy an investment property through my super fund?
