"We were first introduced to Liz by one of our friends in 2013. At that time we were new to the process of home buying. Liz introduced us to Norman and both of them were very helpful during our first home buying experience. Norman helped us in preparing our application and came and visited us several times at home after work hours. He was very patient, helpful and thorough in his work. We were able to contact him anytime for questions and he was always available and provided us with the information needed or got back to use immediately. We have been very happy with the service provided and used Onesite again during our second home buying process."

Executive Summary

This is an educational workshop with property industry experts. Our aim is to educate First Home Buyers and First Time Investors on the main steps involved in securing the appropriate finance, breaking into the current property market and the legal processes involved when you sign a contract to purchase your first property.

The workshop will give you a number of important tips on what to look for in your first property. If you are purchasing in a competitive market like Sydney, we'll walk you through what happens at auction, and what a 66W form is.

The workshop will also cover what you need to do to get your finances in order before applying for a loan. We will show you what Lenders are looking for in order to maximise the number of choices you have for finance once you find the property you are after.

Please feel free to send any questions or other topics you want us to cover in advance. We will try to tailor our presentations around them.
