Hi all, I have finally put myself in a position where i am (potentially) ready to buy my first PPOR. I have a current lease in Adamstown paying $330p/w rent until May 2010, and am saving around 5-600p/w (only as of last week now all of my credit card / furniture etc is paid off) So, i have $5000 saved up, $5500 in shares, $11k in a CFS MF, and have found a nice place i'd like to look at to potentially buy. - I've been told I can cancel my lease with the property manager whenever, as long as they have someone to move in, is this true? - Some main questions i have are - since i havent bought a house before, what are somethings i should be asking the real estate agent when im inspecting? - The offer price is $279,950 - whats a reasonable amount to offer in your opinion? What amount to settle on (if we go through with it) It's been available to buy for a couple of months now, should i mention this? Any tips would be appreciated. As for my depsoit, I have access to around $30k, so i should be able to arrange something with a mortgage provider, surely.
