So it’s time for you to buy your first home and take that big leap into home ownership. But what is one of the first steps you need to do after you have been trawling the net for that perfect home?
It’s smart to keep a level head and be realistic which I know is hard for your first purchase. I have been in the same boat and even for me it was hard. Most first home buyers will need to borrow to buy so before you go much further you need to know how much you can borrow and if you can borrow at all.
As I have mentioned before its best to speak with a broke like Neil who can help you through all of the options for you. You can quickly jump online to any of the banks and see what you can borrow but it’s about the pre-approval process that matters. Online calculators might tell you can borrow $600,000 but once pre-approval is put through you will find that might not be the case.
When applying for a pre-approved loan you will need to provide some additional documentation, such as:
▪ Proof of deposit
▪ Proof of income
▪ Monthly expenses and other outgoings such as loans, credit cards and store cards.
If everything works and you fit what the banks will approve then you can start to make offers on homes.
Things to remember.
