It can be a bit nerve-racking, especially when you’re looking to buy your first home.
But with a little bit of planning and determination, you can make your dreams a reality.
Jame Raymond’s story is a case in point.
The 30-year-old was living in Sydney with his girlfriend of two years when they started thinking about buying a home.
They were initially in the market for a four-bedroom house, but were told they could go with a two-bedroom.
But Mr Raymond says his girlfriend was not sold on the idea.
“The only problem was I was in a position of no income whatsoever,” he said.
“I had no income.
But then I said, ‘I’m in this for myself, so why should I sell?'” “
It was a little hard for her.
But then I said, ‘I’m in this for myself, so why should I sell?'”
He said he also wanted a house that would have been more in his comfort zone.
“We’re not a super-affluent family, so we’ve got a pretty low mortgage.
So we can afford a house with a bit more equity.”
Mr Raymund says he has spent thousands of dollars on his new home. “
When we were first looking at the property, we couldn’t have imagined it was going to be this easy.”
Mr Raymund says he has spent thousands of dollars on his new home.
He says the investment has paid off.
“My wife and I have been married for 13 years and we have a little house, and we’ve built up a good relationship,” he told ABC Radio.
“She was surprised, but she’s now really happy and excited about her new home.”
It’s all about the location The biggest challenge when it comes to finding a home is location.
“Most people are used to a big house on a quiet street,” Mr Raymon says.
But when you are looking for a place, the first thing you should do is find out where you want to live.
“There are so many factors involved in the process of finding a new home,” he tells ABC Radio Sydney.
“A lot of people just come and do it all on their own.”
“You might have to be a lot more adventurous to do this, especially if you’re going to live in the CBD, because you might not be able to get to your job on a Saturday.”
You need to be flexible with your finances To get to the right place, you need to look at your budget and think about where you are going to spend your money.
“You need to have a plan, and you need a flexible budget,” Mr Raymond says.
Mr Raymonds says you need at least $500,000 in your savings account for any new home you’re interested in.
“So if you’ve got $50,000, you could be putting up $250,000.
That’s not all, but $50 to $100,000 is not unheard of,” he adds.
“If you’ve done your research, you’ve found a house in Sydney, and there are a number of houses in Sydney that you might want to look into.”
How to find a property near you The best way to find homes close to you is by using your smartphone.
“That’s the quickest way to do it, is just using your phone,” Mr Stanley says.
If you’re not familiar with mobile phones, you’ll need to make sure your phone is set to receive calls and text messages.
“They’re very easy to use, and they’re really easy to set up,” Mr Robinson says.
There are also a number to choose from, which are called proximity sensors, which will tell you the location of your new home, and if it’s nearby.
“And if you are in a house, there are probably proximity sensors nearby,” Mr Harvey says.
These sensors are also great for looking at nearby homes to find the right fit for your lifestyle.
“Because they’re so cheap, they are going right to the heart of the city, so if it is in a residential area, it will show up there,” Mr Roy says.
You can also search by city or state for a particular property, which you can then enter your details and find out the price of the property.
“One of the things that is so exciting is that there are so much different properties to choose between,” Mr Smith says.
