IR HOMES: 

If You Can’t Afford A House? 

If you live in Queensland, you can use the $20,000 first-home buyer grant to put towards building a granny flat instead.

As bizarre as it sounds, Allan Pearson from IR Homes has confirmed that first-home buyers who cannot afford a house can still access the $20,000 Queensland Government grant if they build a granny flat.


He said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for first home buyers who are unable to afford the cost of their own home and LAND, as they can build a quality IR Homes' Granny Flat on a relative’s land.

It gives excellent, flexible, long-term opportunities for families at all stages of life … parents can buy equity, they can downsize into the granny flat as their children’s families grow, it can be rented out, used for other siblings … the opportunities are endless.”

Buying Your 1st Home

 

WHAT TYPE OF PROPERTY ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT?

 

BRAND NEW HOME

Are you searching for a brand new Home & Land Package or a Ready-Built New Home that is eligible for the First Home Owners Grant?

 

ESTABLISHED HOME

Not eligible for the 1st Home owners grant and want to save money by buying an established (existing) property to make your very own home? 

 

UNSURE?

The comparison between buying an existing home and a new one indicates that the critical issue are:
1. How much the loan repayments represent of the buyer's gross income


2. The monthly repayments and whether there is sufficient buffer for the times when you may need access to cash from your income


3. Personal preferences in home location and quality

 

New home purchase:
Advantages
• New home
• Little repair or maintenance required

Disadvantages
• Possibly a more remote location
• Higher monthly repayments
• Higher proportion of income goes
to repayments
• Additional costs of landscaping, driveway, fencing, paths
• Smaller to no financial buffer for interest rate increases, unemployment, children, discretionary spending
• Less opportunity for savings/investment
• Greater chance of housing stress

Established home purchase
Advantages
• Possibly better location closer to friends, family, services, transport and shopping
• Lower repayments
• Smaller proportion of income goes to repayments
• Established yards, fencing, paths
and driveway
• Potential surplus income for extra loan payments, emergencies or discretionary spending
• Financial buffer for interest rate increases, unemployment, or children
• Greater opportunity for savings
and investment
• Less chance of housing stress
Disadvantages

• Need for repairs and maintenance

 What should first home buyers look for in a home loan?

First home buyers, historically, have always been up against it. As demand and consequently prices for real estate go up, so too does rent, making it more difficult to save up a decent deposit for your dream home.

Add to that banks’ withdrawal of 100% home loans where you can borrow the entire purchase price for your selected property,  and it’s easy to see why some people find the process of getting into their first home quite challenging.

No deposit home loans should really say - no SAVED deposit home loans. Here at U1st Realty,  we can still offer our clients a 100% borrowed funds Home Loan to suitably qualified applicants.

Tips for first home buyers

Buying a property – especially the first time around – is a big decision.

Here are some pre-purchase tips:

1. Don’t start looking until you have narrowed down a location

There are thousands of places to buy out there and the possible choices can become overwhelming. Narrow your search to a specific location before you start looking. Choose either one suburb, or one suburb plus a five kilometre radius. Having a focus will save you precious time.

2. Research the market

Falling “in love” with a property on the very first weekend you start looking can give you a bad case of buyer’s remorse down the track. So once you’ve chosen your location, put yourself in a good negotiating position by getting to know the value of the suburb you are considering.

I Have always said, "You will not recognise great value if you haven't done your homework before the big test."

3. Get an Approval-in-Principal (pre-approval) to establish your max budget.

It’s vital to know what your buying budget is – no point looking at places that cost far more than the bank will lend you.

Try our FREE Borrowing power Assessment Service, and our preferred mortgage broker can liaise with you to get a pre-approval in place.

They will also assist you to  work out your upfront costs, such as deposits, lenders mortgage insurance, stamp duty, and moving costs.

4. Check your credit rating

Our Preferred Mortgage brokers can assist you with knowing what’s on your credit file. Knowing your  credit score can help you to explain any transgressions to your prospective lender. 

5. Our Preferred Brokers can "Shop around"  for a great value loan for you at no charge!

Your home loan may be the biggest debt you ever have, so it pays to ensure you are not paying any more than you need to. 

6. Finally, once you have found the home of your dreams,

we at U1st Realty will assist you in making sure that any documentation you sign is conditional on at least a property and pest inspection, as well as finance.
