What are the key pieces of information I need when buying a first home?

There's a lot of information required when buying a first home, but luckily this information is available from a number of sources.  These sources include banks, insurance companies, real estate companies and financial advisors.

Regardless of whether you are buying a priced property, or a property being sold via auction or tender, it's important to know the following:
  • How much you can afford to borrow to buy your home
  • How large a home deposit you will need (see Question 1)
  • What other costs you will incur during the purchase of the property
  • How to go about making an offer on the property and some knowledge around the possible terms and conditions that can be included within the Sales and Purchase Agreement to give you adequate buying protection
