What should first home buyers look for in a home loan?
First home buyers, historically, have always been up against it. As demand and consequently prices for real estate go up, so too does rent, making it more difficult to save up a decent deposit for your dream home.
Add to that banks’ withdrawal of 100% home loans where you can borrow the entire purchase price for your selected property, and it’s easy to see why some people find the process of getting into their first home quite challenging.
No deposit home loansshould really say - no SAVED deposit home loans. Here at U1st Realty, we can still offer our clients a 100% borrowed funds Home Loan to suitably qualified applicants.

Tips for first home buyers
Buying a property – especially the first time around – is a big decision.
Here are some pre-purchase tips:
1. Don’t start looking until you have narrowed down a location
There are thousands of places to buy out there and the possible choices can become overwhelming. Narrow your search to a specific location before you start looking. Choose either one suburb, or one suburb plus a five kilometre radius. Having a focus will save you precious time.
2. Research the market
Falling “in love” with a property on the very first weekend you start looking can give you a bad case of buyer’s remorse down the track. So once you’ve chosen your location, put yourself in a good negotiating position by getting to know the value of the suburb you are considering.
I Have always said, "You will not recognise great value if you haven't done your homework before the big test."
3. Get an Approval-in-Principal (pre-approval) to establish your max budget.
It’s vital to know what your buying budget is – no point looking at places that cost far more than the bank will lend you.
