Buying Your Next Home

Buying Your Next Home

Stage 1: Do Your Sums

The first step towards buying your next home involves a little self-examination. You need to assess the impact of buying a new home on your cash flow.

This is very important because you need to consider the additional cost of owning a new home such as:

  • Additional loan repayment
  • Cost of selling your new home
  • Stamp duty cost on the purchase of new house
  • Insurance cost
  • Additional council rates
  • Additional maintenance cost
  • Additional repairs and maintenance cost
  • Renovation cost

You also need to make sure that you can afford to hold onto your existing property in case you are not able to sell your existing property immediately or prior to buying your new property.
