First Home Buyer Tips When Looking For Finance

Dec 22, 2007
First home buyers who have not inherited a large chunk of money from rich parents or grandparents want to find the best packages that will give them the best value for their money. As such, they can be very careful, very meticulous, very detail-conscious to ensure that the home finance package they get is their most affordable and their most reasonable.

First home buyer finance scouters can sure use a few tips.

First, find a real estate agent that can relate with you professionally with full integrity and your best interests in mind. The whole home buying process is a meticulous and tedious one, and you need all the help you can get. There will be no more expert advice provider than a real estate agent. Just make sure that agent has complete rapport with your requirements.

Finding that agent will mean finding one who is very familiar with the local real estate market. That agent will also need to have on his fingertips the available properties out for sale, the sale prices, the trends of real estate buying and selling in the area, the development trends in the area that can affect real property prices. These agents must know and understand, even how to write, real estate contracts and agreements, have legal and technical knowhow to look at property titles and lot plans, at building or house floor plans, and other technical documents. They must also have a working knowledge of prevailing revenue or tax regulations.

After you find that agent, search within yourself now what kind of property you truly need. What kind of house do you really want? How many bedrooms will that house have? How big a family are you bringing in? What construction materials need to be considered that have gone into the construction of that house you want to buy? How long has it been erected? How much has the property depreciated economically?

With that contemplation, you come to contemplating your financial capacities thereafter. How long a timetable do you need to come up with the deposit? How long will the tenor of the home loan be? Will you be paying weekly, fortnightly or monthly? How much of your income can you contribute towards this loan and what are your expenses? What mortgage conditions and financing terms can you afford? Will you opt for fixed rates or variable rates considering your cashflow?

Work then with your agent to find that dream house. If you do find it, work on the purchase offer and present that offer to the home owner with full conviction that you can really make the purchase. First home buyers usually have the shakes when finalising the purchase agreements. Resolve to be decisive so that there will be no last minute change of mind and change of heart.

Also, discuss the process of how the transfer of the Title will be done. Don't get afraid of being tagged as ignorant; it is wise to voice out your concerns especially if you were not knowledgeable of things, especailly on legalities. If you can afford a lawyer, consult with one to teach you on how to go along with the legal processes.

After ironing out the kinks, ensure that your agent is ready with all the documentations to consummate the sale with the seller. Then, close the deal!
