First Home Buyer Workshop

Join us for OneSite Finance's First Home Buyer Workshop on Thursday, 5 December 2019

This is an educational workshop with industry experts on how you can enter the property market for the first time - in Sydney.

Whether you are purchasing as a first home buyer or as a first time investor, there will be plenty of insights to gain about the buying process. From the time you sign the contract until the time the property settles and you move in.

This event will be hosted in conjunction with Mey Barquin, the Founder and Principal at Virtue Conveyancing. The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • The 3 main types of buying (Private Treaty, Auction, Off the plan)
  • The various agents involved in the purchase Process
  • The difference between a Solicitor and a Conveyancer
  • Auctions, exchange of contracts and section 66W certificates
  • Gazumping - what can you do to stop it happening to you?
  • Negotiations with agents/vendors prior to exchange and what happens during the pre-exchange phase?
  • Government Schemes for First Home Buyers - what benefits and incentives are there for first home owners or first time investors? We'll also look at the Federal Government's newly announced Mortgage Deposit Guarantee Scheme
  • Other Considerations (i.e. Encumbrance, Tenancy - joint tenants vs. tenants in common, Reports - Strata, Pest and Building)
  • How to choose the most suitable loan for your circumstances
  • How to find the most suitable lender for your situation

Like all OneSite events, this workshop will be held in a friendly, no obligation environment where you can ask as many questions as you want and get all the advice you need from our resident experts.

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.
