In this segment we chatted to some industry experts to give us the low down on exactly how to do it. From tips about deciding on a loan to actually choosing a builder for your home, we take you through the ins and outs of becoming a first homebuyer.
Geoff Cooper from Master Builders recommends always going with a registered builder and preferably a Masters Builders member. You can easily search for a registered builder on the Master Builders website at mbawa.com and you can even search via location, price category or even awards won.
There are also plenty of home loan options available including a Keystart Home Loan who have low deposit loans on offer and a popular shared home ownership scheme.
Keystart are really excited to come on board as a new alliance partner with the Master Builders for 2015.
When deciding on what type of home loan to get, Geoff Cooper suggests that settling on a budget and speaking with a home loan expert is the perfect start.
