In Australia, new home purchases require the property buyer to select a lot and home plan. The transactions give the first-time buyers the chance to get their dream home. The buyers choose from a variety of options and have the opportunity to modify floor plans to meet their needs. A broker assists a first home builder when making the right decisions about their next real estate transaction.
Identifying the Highest Mortgage Value
The prospective buyer reviews their possibilities by completing a pre-qualification for their mortgage. The prequalification establishes what value is affordable for the buyer. The highest value offers a baseline for the buyer to create a budget. He or she isn’t required to accept the highest loan value. It just gives them a jumping off point for what is possible when they approach a builder.
Choosing the Right Lot
The lot and its location define any additional requirements for the home buyer. A private lot that isn’t associated with a subdivision or planned community doesn’t present any prerequisite for the buyer. Lots that are inside subdivisions or planned communities have restrictions. The homeowner’s association restricts the home styles, the square footage, and exterior features.
Exploring Home Designs
The home design defines the total cost of the home purchase. The mortgage process requires the buyer to pay for the lot first. The loan for the new home design is added after the buyer selects the right floor plan. The buyer receives one mortgage for the entire purchase. However, they won’t close on the entire property until the new home is constructed and all inspections are completed.
Completing the Closing Process
The closing process officiates the real estate transaction. The attorney creates a deed for the property in the buyer’s name. The buyer must provide evidence of all insurance required for the property. All requirements for the buyer are explained including the starting date for paying the mortgage.
