Open Homes & Auctions Preview

FHBA co-founder Taj Singh said the property market is expected to quieter on the weekend due to the Australia Day ‘4 day weekend’. “Some Australians have taken a 4 day weekend away this week, while others are enjoying relaxing at home this time of the year. As such, there will be less open homes and auctions scheduled this weekend than normal”.

A quiet weekend presents first home buyers with a good opportunity to have a look around and talk with selling parties. “People still looking at properties this weekend will likely be considered serious buyers, which can assist first home buyers who normally are seen as buyers just dreaming or not having the budget to seal the deal. Having the opportunity to talk to sale agents this weekend will be in favor for those first home buyers who do get out & about” said fellow FHBA co-founder Daniel Cohen.


First home buyer homes of the week

The ever-popular FHBA New Homes of the Week series returned on Wednesday this week. The returning edition was dedicated to an Australia Day theme, with homes that Aussie first home buyers would love.

Here are this week’s first home buyer homes of the week:


Loan Pre-Approval

Planning on going house hunting but don’t know whether a bank will lend you enough funds to buy your first home yet? You should get a no obligation loan pre-approval.

A loan pre-approval provides you with a written guidance of home much a particular bank is willing to lend to you. Loan pre-approvals come with no obligations to proceed, leaving you in control and importantly, attending open homes knowing what your borrowing capacity and budget is.

To organise a no charge loan pre-approval speak to an FHBA Broker from FHBA Mortgages today
