More than the Mortgage: The Costs First Home Buyers Must be Aware of


Buying or building a home for the first time can be exciting, especially when you’ve found a great location. Perth, for instance, offers nice residential prospects thanks to its pleasant Mediterranean climate and a thriving central business district (CBD). At any rate, first home buyers must keep in mind that owning a home entails many considerations. Financing is undoubtedly the foremost of these concerns.

Mortgage payments are important to think about, but the costs of home ownership go beyond the monthly fees. Some people, especially those who are buying a home for the first time, make the mistake of thinking that they have nothing to worry about as long as they can afford the recurring payments. To avoid any snags down the line, be sure to keep in mind these other home ownership costs.

House and Land Packages in Perth: An Overview of Construction Loans


If you ever decide to purchase an established home, the entire amount of the loan will be drawn to pay for the property as soon as the contract is signed. You simply have to make monthly repayments until the loan is fully paid off.

If you opt to build a property, however, as in the case of house and land packages, this kind of setup is considered less than ideal. Amongst other things, you will have to pay for the loan on the finished property even though it is still under construction. To avoid having to pay a high interest rate, you might want to obtain a construction loan.

Buying House and Land Properties for Investment: What You Need to Know


According to banking analyst Martin North from Digital Finance Analytics, a good number of first home buyers (FHBs) are purchasing their first ever homes not as owner-occupiers, but as investors. Speaking at the release of the latest J.P. Morgan Australian Mortgage Industry Report, North said that oversaturated markets in Australia—where owner-occupier loans are virtually impossible to obtain—have forced FHBs to get interest-only loans for investment properties backed by rental income.

FHBs are being denied access to the residential property market in past decades because the average price-to-income ratio in Australia has now ballooned by a factor of 9 (a few decades ago, the multiplier was as low as 3 times). Yet instead of being frozen out of the residential property market, young FHBs are simply switching how they penetrate it to take better advantage of tax privileges widely available to investors.
