Entering the property market as a first homebuyer in NSW is a significant milestone so it is essential to be well-prepared and informed. This comprehensive guide will walk you through the crucial steps and factors to consider while purchasing your first property in the dynamic NSW real estate market.

Where to Start

The journey to homeownership looks different for everyone, but it always begins in the same place. Before searching for a property in the market, the first step is to apply for a pre-approval on a home loan. We know this process can seem daunting to a first home buyer, so Simplify Finance has committed to simplifying the process for you.

Saving for a Deposit

Saving for a deposit to buy a home is essential when applying for a home loan. A sizeable down payment will substantially improve your financial position when applying for a home loan, and understanding your financial capacity can significantly assist in your efforts to save. If you would like to figure out your financial capacity, our budget planner can help you.

Understanding Home Loan Options

Securing a home loan is a critical aspect of buying your first home. To find the best home loan for you, researching various home loan products offered by banks and lenders, comparing interest rates, repayment terms, and loan features will ensure the best option. Engaging a mortgage broker is critical during this process, as they can help you navigate the complexities of home loans, provide personalised advice, and negotiate on your behalf to secure the best deal possible.

Homeownership in NSW begins with a clear understanding of your financial capacity. Evaluate your savings, income, and expenses to determine a realistic budget for your property purchase. This step will help you identify the properties that align with your financial situation and narrow your search.

Government Subsidies in NSW

As a first home buyer in NSW, you can take advantage of various government subsidies and grants designed to support your homeownership journey. The NSW First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) offers financial assistance to eligible buyers purchasing a newly built or substantially renovated property. The First Home Buyers Assistance Scheme also provides exemptions or concessions on stamp duty, also known as transfer duty. It significantly reduces the upfront costs of buying a property.
