How to Go Back to Basics – Buying Your First Home

How to Go Back to Basics – Buying Your First HomeAs the title states, today – we’re going back to basics. We’re starting from the beginning, in a journey that will change the rest of your life. If will set the stage for dozens of memories. It will be the backdrop of some of the greatest moments in your next chapter. Sound dramatic? That’s intended. We’re talking about buying your first home.

Obviously, first and foremost, we hope that you do so with the Australian Heritage Homes team. We’re the best at what we do for a reason. Decades of experience, team members that truly care about about what we do, and all of the connections to ensure that a home that you purchase is going to be place that you’ll want to live in for a long, long time. But regardless of whom you work with, the Australian Heritage Homes team is prolific because information-sharing is just as important to us. That’s why we have this blog and that’s why we impart the wisdom that we’ve amassed for so long. We’re grateful for you visiting us and today, we’re talking about that very first step – and some would say, one of the most important steps – in your adult lives. Let’s strategize about buying your first home!

Saving is the first key word that we want you to remember. Save, save, save. Have a plan well in advance. This is something that you want to be passionate about. It will only help you in the long run, because you’ll be so happy and satisfied when you’re able to properly prepare for your first home. It’s wonderful that we live in the Information Age and there are so many applications and tools that allow you to budget. We’re happy to share a wealth of knowledge in this space.

Do your research. Again, we can always be your partners in crime here, but the Internet is supportive as well. Are you thinking about building? Are you thinking about flipping? Are you thinking about buying new real estate? While the questions can be very overwhelming, it will only empower you to make the best decisions for you and your loved ones. Here is where we step back – there’s no right answer. There is only a right answer for you and your future.

Ask ALL of the questions. We know, this can be tough. You may have a personality where you just want this process to be completed quickly and without much fuss. But, the best things in life require work, and this is definitely a good example of that. We hate to say it, but those that work in real estate have their own agenda. They have numbers to make. So too, do the teams in construction and building your homes. You need to be your own advocate and that’s where the “do your own research” comes in to play. We have no doubt that you can do it, but if you need someone on your shoulder offering advice – ahem… we’re here.
