James Eaves, Rockingham Mortgage Broker gives helpful advice about moving away from the familiar
The idea of buying a first home sounds exciting enough but once the wheels are in motion, the reality can be a bit scary.
For first time homeowners, the process can often be intimidating. James Eaves, a mortgage broker located in Rockingham, WA, understands fully that people sometimes come down with a case of nerves when purchasing a home. Eaves’ experience and professionalism, however, can help alleviate those fears.
Assess your fears – and confront them
Moving from the family home is a rite of passage that many young people think about often–independence is certainly appealing. But often, those thoughts of ‘freedom’ are intermingled with a latent fear of dealing with the ‘real world.’ Eaves suggests making a list of the pros and cons of moving toward independence–taking a hard look at the ‘cons’ and assessing how the ‘pros’ can counteract them.
Doing thorough research about buying a home, whether in Baldivis, Rockingham or some other area, is a smart move. Learning about home loan interest rates, housing trends, property cycles, etc. will help banish the mystery behind purchasing a home for the first time. Being educated about the process will make you better equipped for first time home ownership.
Moving out – not just for ‘young’ people
Not only are young Australians moving out of home (and more recently, as trends show, in their late 20’s), but ‘older’ folks with other special circumstances as well. Divorce, widowhood and moving in with a partner are just a few common situations that dictate moving away from a familiar situation such as an established family home.
Don’t try to do it yourself – hire a mortgage broker
Eaves recommends that first time homebuyers set their goals and consult with a qualified mortgage broker–one who can assist with the home loan process step by step from the beginning through to the end.
