Your first time home buyer guide

Buying your first home can be really daunting; there is just so much to think about.

  • Where are the best locations to buy?
  • What size of house do we want?
  • What can we afford / what’s our budget?
  • What are the transport links and parking like?
  • Why are so many homes sold before I even see the listings?!

Never fear, Your Local Real Estate Team™ is here to help!

We take the hassle and worry out of being a first home buyer, without taking away all the excitement and enjoyment. As your experienced local real estate team, we’ll point you towards the good areas to invest, the up and coming districts, the locations where you can get so much more space for your money.

We’ll also get you insider information on homes before they even hit the market, and keep you informed of new developments that haven’t been officially launched yet, so you have the widest choice of homes to look at and consider.

And when you’ve found the home you want, we can put you in touch with local, reliable professionals such as home inspectors, mortgage brokers for first time home buyers, and insurance companies.

Save time and money with Your Local Real Estate Team™

Buying your first home is a major investment, and you don’t want to rush into it. On the other hand, your time is precious, and you certainly don’t want to waste it driving from one side of town to the other, only to find the house is totally unsuitable or the neighbourhood is not right for you.

Your Local Real Estate Team™ will help you sort out the best homes for you, whether a smart townhouse, country bungalow, spacious condo, urban apartment, duplex house or family home. We’ll make sure your shortlist includes as many features you want as possible, from spacious lounges to large back yards. We’ll even arrange viewings and make sure they happen in a sensible viewing order, so you spend more time looking at homes and less time in the car.
