Thinking about your goals

The home buying process can be exciting, especially if this is your first home. Before you start, take time to think and talk about how buying a property fits into your future plans.

Summary of important things to know
  • Think carefully about your long-term goals and how you will get there.

  • Ask yourself why you are buying. Do you want to buy or build a first home, buy a bigger home or invest in a rental property?  

  • Decide whether buying is right for you. Would renting suit your lifestyle better?

  • If you’re in a relationship, make sure you discuss your plans together.
