Its a huge step to buy a property, especially if you are considering buying in Sydney. You will need to have saved up a deposit of at least 10 – 20% plus be committed to paying off your mortgage for 10 or 20 or even 30 years to come. This could definitely take a toll on some of your overseas holidays and possibly even your social life! Is it really something you want to do? These are some of the very important questions you need to seriously ask yourself before you consider buying real estate.
Here are a few key points to think about before you start making a list of where you want to buy and what your new couch should look like:
Once you’ve thought about these questions then comes the hard part of finding a home or an investment that works for your lifestyle or your family, and your budget.
You might decide that you’re not ready to move out of your current home but you want to buy and investment property. This can allow you to have the best of both worlds ie stay living by the beach in Bondi and still get ‘your foot in the door’ or ‘onto the real estate ladder’.
Or you might decide you want your own ‘patch of grass’ so its time to start looking at new suburbs where you can afford the home you want and still have the lifestyle you need.
