  • Buying Your Next Home

    Take the first steps toward buying your next home, with our guide to saving, budgeting and getting your finances organised.
    ONE
    Evaluate Reasons for Buying
    Consider the reasons you’re moving and the features you’re looking for in your next home.

    • You may need more space for a growing family or want to downsize to better suit your   lifestyle.
    • Many people buy a new home to move closer to their family, job or great schools.
    • If you’re happy with the location of your current home, you may like to consider   renovating your home as an alternative.
    • Talk to our Advisors to discuss your various options depending upon your needs

    TWO
    Using the equity in your current home
    Equity is the difference between the market value of your property and the amount you still owe on your home loan.

    • If you’ve made extra mortgage repayments over the years or your property has    increased in value, you may be able to access the equity in your current home and use it   as a deposit for your next home.
    • You can also use this property as security for the home loan on your next property.
    • Ask us to evaluate your position.
    • What if you don’t have equity we can explore options for you.

    THREE
    If you bought your first home a while ago, there may be additional costs that you haven’t considered,

    • Selling costs or converting into investment property which entails additional landlord   insurance etc.
    • These may include bridging finance, Stamp Duty, real estate agent’s fees and moving   costs.
    • Understanding what it will cost to buy your next home will help you stay on top of your   finances every step of the way.

    FOUR
