As the weather warms up throughout our Sunshine State, many people are out looking at buying property. Spring and summer are when houses tend to look their best and many renters are out travelling around, comparing the prices of house and land packages.
That includes first home buyers looking at getting off the rental roundabout and into their own homes as soon as possible.
However, it can be a daunting process for first home buyers. Not being prepared can lead to added expenses and you may have to wait longer before you can move into your dream home.
So, to help you out, here are a few key areas you should be aware of that will make shopping around for house and land packages that much easier.
Understand the process. You should understand every part of the first home buyer process. From the low deposit home loan to insurance, conveyancing, inspections, contracts, and the follow-through. It’s important to do the research on each step.
Understand the terms. As well as the process, it’s important to understand the terminology used. Here are some examples:
From price — This means base price. You will need to add in all the inclusions you want, which are normally at full retail.
Fixed price — This means the package the builder is selling is fixed price. However, the contract will have fine print where it doesn’t cover “Infrastructure costs”, which are also fixed to the stated inclusions.
Full turnkey — What this means to the customer may be a completely different term for the builder. Are you able to move in at this point or not? This is a very broad term that many builders interpret differently.
