  1. 1. Begin your home loan application 

Start collecting all the relevant documents to apply for a pre-approval. Made For You Finance can guide you in collecting what you need.

  1. 2. Start house hunting 

Here are some things you to check when looking for a property:

• Condition of the property: this includes the roof and its insulation. See whether neighbouring properties are in good condition and check for damp patches and cracks inside.

• Location: for example, is the property close to transport, schools, shops and restaurants.

• Suburb value: Is the suburb you are looking to buy in growing in value?

• Development: Check with the local council to see if any developments are planned for the area.

  1. 3. Make an offer

Before making an offer you should consider:

• Obtaining a copy of the contract of sale

• Getting your solicitor or conveyancer to review the contract of sale

  1. 4. Before property settlement 

Before your property settles, you should look to:

• Lock-in your finance.

• Conduct your property inspections, such as building and pest or strata.

• Organise your conveyancing.

• Do a pre-settlement inspection. You are entitled to inspect the property before settlement to check it is still in the same condition as when it was sold (except for reasonable wear and tear).

  1. 5. Settlement  

Congratulations, you made it! Now it’s time to celebrate and enjoy your new home.

  1. 6. Reviewing your loan
