My partner and I have just recently started seriously looking into buying a house… I say ‘seriously’ as I have always looked at houses but mainly just dreaming about a dream house!
BUT now we are looking at our savings, looking at what we can afford, where we can afford, etc., etc. All that nitty gritty stuff!
We know that where we currently live, we are not going to stay. It is not affordable for us to buy here (we live in a city in New Zealand where house prices have just kept going up in the last couple of years). We have decided on where we would like to buy based on liking a particular town, location relative to our families and of course the affordability of it.
Any pointers on things to look out for? Tips? Tricks?
