Top tips for first time buyers

We sat down with Bold Living Senior Sales Consultant Brendan Wekeem to get some tips on building your first home.... 
Brendan says first home buyers looking at getting into the market should always have a chat with a sales consultant to help them find the right house and land package or homesite to suit their needs and budget. 
"The starting point should always be finding a homesite to match the chosen home design," he said.
"There are lots of things to consider, like easements and setbacks, building covenants, orientation of the home and of course, value for money.
"An experienced builder can help make this process smooth and simple."
Brendan says buyers also need to consider why they are purchasing the home.
"Think about whether you are looking to expand your family and need more yard space or are simply looking to get in to the market for investment purposes.
"Once we have taken design into consideration, we can focus on finances, discussions with a finance broker, and also the various First Home Buyers Grants that are available to you."
