I’m ready to own my first home, but where do I even start?

 
Budget
Talk to friends, chat to builders and do your own research to get an understanding for how much things will cost. You might be surprised at the cost things such as upgrades can add onto your projected budget and it’s all about landing on something that feels right to you. Getting ballpark quotes will assist in prioritising the components of your dream home and really needs to be the first step in your journey.

Choose your network smartly
You don’t need to have all the answers – but your support network does. At Peet, you have experts in property who guide every step of the process with decades of experience putting people in homes they love – and there is no such thing as a stupid question to them. Make sure when you’re choosing your builder you do your ground work – walk around their display homes, ask about upgrades, visit their website and check out reviews. This person is about to become your business partner – choose wisely!

Get inspired
You may have seen some homes you like and have a vague idea of the things that are important to you -but have you thought about soft furnishings? Do you know what furniture you’ll be bringing into the space? Have you thought about how long you will be living in your new home and what life phases you will transition through that may require added consideration during the building phase? Drive around your future neighbourhood at different hours of the day, visit their display village and get a feel for what you like and what you don’t – getting inspired is an integral part of the process!
