Ready? 3 Easy Steps To Your First Home

How Much Can I Borrow?

The first step in the process is working out how much you can borrow. We'll help you with an initial calculation of your borrowing capacity and through this process we'll also uncover which of the new grants you qualify for. With so many banks to choose from and so many grants available, we'll do the heavy lifting for you. The best part... this can all be done over the phone and online in under 10 minutes.

Choose Your Suburb & Find A Block

Next, we help you find the perfect suburb for your first home and importantly, we'll help guide you on block selection within that suburb. This is an important step as many blocks of land will not allow you to qualify for the new $25,000 grant! Blocks must be ready to go (not waiting for council approval) otherwise you'll miss out. We also have a panel of developers with exclusive off market opportunities.

Choose Your Home Design & Builder

Finally, we'll introduce you to the approved builders on our Builder Panel that offer you full turnkey properties, where your home is delivered completely finished inside and out. Not only that, the contract cannot be altered. This is VERY important as so-called "fixed price" packages usually have sub clauses which blow out the end build price. We'll help you with analysing your build contract.

Read some of our first home buyers success stories below.

Bianca

First Time Home Owner

We LOVE Bianca’s story. Bianca attended one of our first home buyer workshops and although short on a deposit, was very keen to get into her own home. We worked with Bianca on a budgeting plan and over the course of three months, she was able to save up a small deposit. We took advantage of HomeStart’s low deposit home loan and paired Bianca with a property developer that gave an extra $5000 rebate. Here’s Bianca on handover day for her new home! Its surprising how far you can progress in three short months!

Nicolene & Thomas

From Home Buyers

Nicolene and Thomas were keen to buy a home for themselves and their toddler son. We helped Nicolene and Thomas with a deposit savings plan so they could quickly get their small deposit saved up. We consolidated some car and personal loans into a lower interest loan, which helped them save faster! They ended up securing $25,000 in grants and built their new home far sooner than they thought possible!

Ben & Kate

First Home Buyers

Here is Ben and Kate signing their home build contracts with one of the builders on our Builder Panel. We have a panel of builders that offer full turn key house and land packages. This means the price you sign for is the price you pay. No nasty surprises!

Darryl & Florlyn

From Home Owners

Darryl and Florlyn, both first time home buyers pictured here on slab pour day! This home will look great when it’s finished, and because it’s full turnkey, which means everything is done both inside and out when they get the keys!
Gorata & Rumbidzai

First Home Buyers

Not everyone wants to build brand new. Although the grants are all in play for people who choose to build, sometimes first home buyers still want to buy an established property. Here is Gorata and Rumbidzai  finalising their loan documents for their first home. We helped them negotiate the price of their home to the lowest price possible – keeping more money in their pockets!

Eddie & May

From Home Owners To Investors

Eddie and May pictured to the right on handover day of their investment property in Mt Barker. Eddie and May went from first home owner with us to buying a second property just 3 years later. Their decision to invest in Adelaide property was a sound decision, with their property rented out to fantastic tenants on the first open inspection! What a fantastic story! 

Elizabeth

First Home Buyer

This is Elizabeth and her sons checking out the progress of their new home! It’s looking great and they’re very happy with it! Won’t be long before it’s finished and they can move in. So glad we could help Elizabeth make this happen for her family!

Damian

From Home Buyer

Here is Damian signing for his new block of land. Damian found a particular block that was very suitable for him and we helped with with the price negotiation (Neil Wilson from Wilson Real Estate was fantastic to deal with) and then with finding a builder to to a full turnkey build.
Andre

First Home Buyer

Andre has only recently joined up to our Fast Start Program in order to get the whopping $25,000 Home Builder grant. Combined with the SA First Home Owner Grant, Andre is taking advantage of a massive $40,000 in bonuses and was kind enough to film a short testimonial on his experience (unprompted, he did it as a way to say thanks to our founder, Rick, for all his help).
