Making Your Dreams Of Home Ownership A Reality

What is the process for buying a home as a first-home buyer?
Getting on the property ladder as a first-time buyer can be an intimidating process.

You need to establish your borrowing capacity, save for a deposit, research and get pre-approved for a home loan, find your dream home, make an offer, finalise the loan, and then settle and deal with closing costs.

Going through this convoluted process on your own is inadvisable. Instead, trust our dedicated professionals to help and provide expert insights to inform your decision-making at every stage.

First-Home Buyers Frequently Asked Questions

How much deposit do I need to save for my first home?
The amount of deposit you need to save for your first home in Australia can vary, but typically you will need to save at least 5%, often closer to 20% of the purchase price. The more you can save, the better, because this can help you secure a better interest rate on your home loan.
What government incentives are available for first-home buyers in Australia?
Several government incentives are available for first-home buyers in Australia, including the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG), the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS), and the HomeBuilder scheme. These incentives can help you save money on your deposits, reduce your mortgage payments, or get you financial assistance to buy a new home. One of our team can help explain exactly what these schemes entail for you and how to apply for them..
How do I apply for a first-home buyer loan?
To apply for a first-home buyer loan in Australia, you’ll need to provide details of your income, savings, expenses, and debts. You must also provide proof of identity, such as a passport or driver’s licence, and complete a loan application form. You’ll submit all this information to a lender. At Absolut, we take the time to help you gather all this information as part of the home loan application process.
What costs are involved in buying your first home?
Besides the actual purchase price of the property, which you’ll pay for through a deposit and your home loan, you’ll also incur costs like stamp duty, legal fees, inspection fees, and ongoing charges such as council rates and insurance. We’ll talk you through these costs to ensure you consider them as part of your budget.
Can you buy an investment property as your first home?
Buying an investment property as your first home in Australia is possible, but this may not be the best option for everyone. Investment properties are typically more expensive than owner-occupied properties, and you will need to meet stricter lending criteria. To explore your options, contact one of our trusted experts today.
