Buying Your First Home

Buying a home is exciting-and daunting. Many Australians have created wealth, a better lifestyle and security in retirement through the purchase of a quality property. Without care, however, the great Australian dream can turn into a nightmare. 

Purchasing your first home, whether it's a house, townhouse or unit, it is likely to be the biggest financial commitment you will make-and yet many people are unprepared for the legal, monetary and emotional challenges of buying a home.

For a first home buyer, planning and research is crucial to ensure you get a property that suits your finances and lifestyle. At CCCU, we willassist you by providing you with the facts and information required to finance your first home.

Getting Started

Buying a residential property requires commitment, discipline and planning. Don't rush in - it is a choice that is likely to affect your life for years or even decades.

Define your goals. Do you want a house, a townhouse or a unit? What factors will ensure the greatest possible increase in the value of your home? There is no simple formula, but better research now is likely to pay off in the future. As a starting point, consider the following question: How much can you afford?

At CCCU, we can assess your situation, calculate exactly what you can afford and provide you with a pre-approved loan, then you will be ready to start looking for your dream home.

The first step is saving enough money for a deposit. At CCCU, we can lend you up to 95% of the purchase price. The loan aside, you will need additional funds to meet other costs such as stamp duty, conveyancing, Loan Mortgage Insurance and other legal fees. 

Loan Mortgage Insurance

Most first-home-buyers usually have to pay lender's mortgage insurance is they borrow more than 80% of the value of the property. The insurance covers the lender in the event that you default on payments. Avoiding Loan Mortgage Insurance can save you thousands of dollars, if possible try to save a minimum deposit of 20% as this will save you thousands to start with.
