Congratulations, no doubt if you are reading this you are about to either buy or build a home.  It could be your first, second or even third home.  It can be a stressful time and the market is flooded with lots of tips and tricks.

I’ve put together some essential home buyer tips that can help you out whether you’re building or buying, it need not be that stressful.

Essential Home Buyer Tips

First home buyers in particular require the most help and deciding on whether to buy or build is a process in itself.  You want to make sure you are buying the right home, in the right community that suits your needs.  You also want to get as much knowledge as you can so you can make the right decisions.

If you are building a new home then Stockland have created welcoming and friendly residential communities in Australia.  It’s their passion to not only build happy and healthy communities, but to create sustainable communities that thrive.  I think this is particularly important for a first home buyer as a community that is focused and has strong community connections and education is a place you will want to stay and perhaps have a family in the future. Stockland make the places, but then you make them your own.

Make Sure You Are Ready

Make sure you are ready to buy or build your own home.  By having enough of a deposit if you are a first home buyer and having pre-loan approval are ways you can get organised.  Getting all your finances together at the start is a great way to get prepared for the commitment that lies ahead.

Educate Yourself

There is so much information on the web about buying a home so educate yourself with trusted guidance. Stockland has partnered up with Adam Doville to create a first home buyers guide, shed light on the most important topics being faced by first-time buyers in today’s property market.

So You Want to Build a House

How exciting that you have decided that you want to build a house.  Moving into your new place is an exciting chapter in your life; with so many options to choose, there’s a lot to consider.

If you are at the start of your building and buying journey, Stockland have put together some useful information and tips to help make the process easier. With 58 residential communities across Australia and thousands of families calling them home, Stockland pride themselves on continuing to create places where you can call home.

Finding an existing home that suits your needs can be tricky; by building your property with a trusted builder, you’re guaranteeing your dream home will be a reality. You can visit display villages, builders and home designs at Stockland and let the fun and excitement begin.

I absolutely love visiting display homes.  If you are interested in building these are a great way to make to your decision easier.  You can take tours, be inspired by that brand new feeling and then if you have completely fallen in love you can talk to a building representative.  It also gives you an idea of the community that is being built around you.

I hope this has given you a few tips to get you started on the fun journey of either building and buying your first, second and even third home.
