Important Things to Consider when Buying a New Home.

Buying or building a new home is a milestone event in life. If you’re starting your new homebuying journey, here are 4 important considerations to keep in mind as you explore your options.

1. Consider your budget and finances

The first step of getting ready to buy or build a home is knowing what you can afford. How much can you borrow? How big will your deposit be? What’s your budget? What’s the best home loan for your situation?

You may like to engage an expert to help you determine your borrowing capacity, find the most competitive interest rates and provide expert advice to help you make an informed and confident purchase decision.

When it comes to affordability, Waterline Place's latest release of Merchant Apartments could be the perfect choice for you. With fixed prices and no progress payments, you’ll only have to pay the deposit, with nothing else to pay until completion. You can learn more about these homes here.

2. Consider the grants and schemes you could be eligible for

Depending on your situation, you may be eligible to take advantage of government grants. You can chat with an expert or do your own research to find out more about the eligibility criteria. If you’re looking for assistance to buy your first or a family home, you could be entitled to participate in the Home Guarantee Scheme (HGS). You can learn more about these schemes and grants by clicking below.

3. Consider what features you need and want in a home

Most homebuyers have a good idea of what features they want and need in their new home. Requirements range from a certain number of bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces to butler’s pantries, laundry size, car accommodation and what you want from your outdoor space.

We recommend writing down your list of must-haves and having it with you when you visit our Display Suite or chat with our sales representatives. This will help ensure these elements are top of mind as you explore your options.

At AVJennings, we offer land, house-and-land packages as well as our very own AVJennings turnkey homes and townhomes. It’s one of the ways we’re building diverse and vibrant communities for people of all ages and families of all sizes across the nation.

4. Consider the location and surrounds

The location of your new home is so important. Living close to shopping centres, public transport, schools, parks, freeways and other amenities helps to create a lifestyle of convenience and comfort. What amenities and community features matter most to you?
