Buying Your Next Home

Need more room? Wish to move closer to family or a good school? Relocating from overseas or interstate? Looking for a sea-change or tree-change? Want to downsize to release funds or move into a smaller home requiring less maintenance?

Should you buy first or sell first? Can you keep your current home as an investment? What is the best way to fund the deposit? What is bridging finance and how does it work? How much will all this cost? What are the risks and how can you best avoid them?

It is suggested that buying and selling a home is the third most stressful thing to do in life, preceded only by death in the family and divorce. Getting expert advice and guidance throughout each stage will save you heaps of time, help avoid the stress and make everything run smoothly.

We have developed a 21 step process, broken down into 7 easy steps for each stage. Check it out below!
  1. Review your current borrowing capacity with over 30 banks.
  2. Compare your borrowing capacity to your budget to establish the comfortable limit of your next loan.
  3. Analyse different buying and selling scenarios to mitigate the risk of overcommitment.
  4. Confirm if your next best move would be to buy before you sell, or sell before you buy.
  5. Arrange pre-approval of finance.
  6. Organise access to the 10% deposit you will need for your next purchase.
  7. Alternatively, If at this stage you decide not to sell we will reduce your current interest rate and help you pay off your home loan quicker.
