Buying Your First Home

We take the stress out of buying your first home, so you can focus on the excitement.

Buying your first home is an exciting time in the life of many everyday families.

But this period of time can also be filled with stress as you encounter a number of financial challenges you may never have thought to expect.

Are you:

  • Feeling overwhelmed by having to stick to a strict budget?
  • Worried about whether buying a home is the right move for you or not?
  • Tired of spending every free moment researching the property market?
  • Confused by the technical lingo you keep encountering while researching?
  • Unsure of whether the pros of buying outweigh the cons of renting?

We understand that buying your first home can be a lot more complicated than it looks.

When first diving into the world of home ownership, many people think that saving enough to pay for the deposit is the hardest part. In our experience, simply finding the right property for you can be just as challenging.

But, while they are both important, they are just the first steps on the path to becoming a homeowner.

When trying to balance how much you are able to borrow with how much you can realistically repay, it can be easy to feel like buying your first home is an impossible task.

But buying your first home doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

At My Wealth Solutions, we specialise in helping everyday families navigate the world of home ownership with ease and confidence.

We know that you want to worry less about the process of buying your first home and focus more on the excitement instead.

That’s why we help ease your fears by acting as your go-to source of professional guidance on every step along your home-ownership journey.

Don’t risk your financial security by going it alone. We’re here to help, always.

All you have to do is get in touch.

Let Us Know How We Can Help

How do I buy my first home?

Buying your first home can be more complicated than it appears at first glance.

While implementing a clear, practical budget to help you save for a deposit is important, the process of buying a home also includes more fineprint than you may expect.

Depending on which state or territory you live in, you could also have to factor in costs like stamp duty, lender’s mortgage insurance and any legal or conveyancing fees into your budget.

The process of buying your first home includes:

  • Saving for your deposit by implementing and sticking to an achievable budget
  • Figuring out exactly how much you can afford to borrow
  • Weighing up whether the repayments of your home will be more or less than your weekly rent
  • Understanding the other upfront costs you may have to pay
  • Finding the right home loan for your unique financial circumstances
  • Preparing for auction or private sale

Sounds like a lot, right? Don’t worry, you’ve got a secret weapon: us!

Our team of expert financial advisors act in partnership with our mortgage brokers to help you breeze through the entire home loan process.

Because our financial advisors and mortgage brokers work closely together, we’re uniquely positioned to provide guidance that considers your whole financial picture.

Whether you’re worried about how buying your first home will affect your overall financial plan or need advice on finding the right home loan (link to home loan advice service), we’re here to help.

What should I be aware of before buying my first home?

Since the process of buying your first home can be complicated, there’s often a thing or two that first homeowners aren’t aware of.

During the process of buying your first home, you should be aware of:

  • Any state taxes, like stamp duty, you may be obligated to pay
  • If you can access the first home owner grant
  • The importance of knowing the local market well
  • How a home loan will affect your overall financial plan

We know that understanding the ins and outs of the home buying process can feel like it’s unachievable for the ordinary person.

That’s why we want to help by giving you all the information you need to take on the process with the confidence that only professional guidance can give.

We act as the bridge between yourself and the often confusing property industry, so you’ll never have to feel like you don’t understand exactly what is involved.

My wife and I decided to make some changes to the way we were managing our finances and planning for our future financial security. Through the process of re-financing for the construction of our new family home,…from the very first meeting we had with Ben, we were comfortable and at the same time excited about…to our financial planning and future position.

We have been seeing Guy at MWS for a few years now, and his advice has been invaluable. We are a young family trying to make the best of what we have, and Guy really puts it all into perspective, so it isn’t overwhelming. Whenever we meet with him, I always walk away feeling so motivated that we are making good choices for the future…We’ll be long-term clients and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending him to others.

…They have provided my partner and I peace of mind that our future is more secure especially with a baby on the way. Our super is working for us rather than the big companies…and they have put a smart financial strategy in place that meets our life goals. I have recommended MWS to many of my friends and will to anyone new as I am confident that they conduct themselves in the best interest of their clients.

Our experience has been very positive. Ben has set us up for our future and now we can feel satisfied knowing that we have our finances in good hands. We no longer stress about what we or our family would be financially accountable for should something happen to any of us. Thank you again.

Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions have been incredible to work with. They discussed our financial situation and proposed ways to improve our position in an easy but professional manner that left us feeling very secure about the future. Timely responses to our questions and keeping us up to date on changes and progress only enhanced the feeling of trust we had with them. Thoroughly recommend the team if you are looking for sound financial assistance.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

After 20 years of working, we had no real direction when it came to planning for our financial future. After deciding to visit My Wealth Solutions, we now have achievable financial goals and we couldn’t be more confident that the strategies employed will ensure a comfortable retirement. The MWS team took the time to understand our current financial situation, needs and wants…Guy and Nikki…explained all aspects of their advice in a clear language that was easy to understand.
