You drive around your ideal neighbourhood and find the perfect house design, but what are the things to consider when buying a house? While the look and feel of your favourite home might be enough for you to sign on the dotted line, there are many things to consider including your budget, location, available grants, lifestyle, whether to buy an existing home or build a new home – the list is endless.
If you’re a new home buyer looking for a new home in Canberra, we’ve gathered the must-know tips to consider ahead of buying a home.
For many, one of the top considerations ahead of buying a first home is ensuring that you’ve checked out all grants in your state or territory to make sure you understand whether or not you’re eligible.
The First Home Owners Grant is a national scheme with each state and territory having its own eligibility requirements and grant amounts.
In the ACT, for example, there is a grant of $7,000 for new home owners to put towards the purchase of a new or renovated home that is valued at $750,000 or less. As well as this, for ACT residents, there are stamp duty concessions available based on total income and number of dependent children available for home buyers purchasing their first home.
When you are ready to buy a house, here are a few things to consider to ensure you are focusing on all the essential elements before you dive into a property purchase.
