Share nyo naman experience nyo sa pagbili ng bahay, magkano ba talaga dapat namin ipunin, ano mga hidden cost, ano ba magandang new developing area para ma-take advantage namin first home owner grant na worth $15K. Salamat!

    Hi @LittleBoyBlue
    igeneralize ko na ung mga pointers na mabibigay ko for new and established para mas open ang topic.

    1) At least 5% deposit (may not always be the case).
    - kung gusto maavoid ang Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI), prepare at least 20% deposit.
    - kung gagamitin for deposit ang First Home Owners Grant - for new properties lang ito
    2) Stamp Duty - may or may not be payable depending on the property price at kung new or established
    http://stampduty.calculatorsaustralia.com.au/stamp-duty-nsw#.Ubkfffk3DL8
    3) Conveyancing Fees
    4) Building and Pest Reports - optional. kung new di na siguro kailngan nito
    5) Strata Report (unit) - optional
    6) Bank Loan Application Fees
    7) Monthly Fees - waived for some loan accounts. basahin ang fine print
    dito papasok ang offset accounts, redraw facilities, repayment options etc
    8) Credit Protection Insurance - optional
    9) singit ko na ung post expenses pagkabili bahay
    - monthly mortgage
    - council fees
    - strata fees (unit)
    - moving fees, appliances, electrical and plumbing works
    - at maraming pang iba :D

    total amount na kailngan ipunin ay naka depende sa total amount ng bahay plus mga fees involve on settlement kaya mahirap magbigay ng fixed or estimated figure ng kailngan ipunin. siguro safe bet is on top of the deposit amount kailngan pa ng at least 5 - 10% for the settlement, govt and bank fees pero di to sure case to case basis pa din talaga..

    normally required (may not always be the case) na around 6 - 9 months employed sa current company mo as a permanent employee bago ka payagan magapply ng loan. make sure maganda ang credit rating history mo kung may credit card ka or recurring bills / other loans para siguradong maapprove ang loan

    about sa question mo sa kung saan lugar bibili ng bahay, medyo mahirap magsuggest dito kasi relative ang mga opinions natin sa kung ano ang "ok". iba iba tayo ng criteria sa kung ano ang gusto natin. malapit ba sa public transport? malapit ba sa city? malapit ba sa workplace? malapit ba sa amenities, schools, groceries, mall? gusto mo ba ng affordable na bahay at willing ka na malayo sa cbd / public transpo? marami talaga ang pwede iconsider

    This is fair enough...

    Pero if I am to ask, would there be any good website that you would know wherein they would give a nice overview of any particular suburbs? :)

    This will be a good start perhaps! :)

    it would depend on your priorities. set kayo ng goal para may susundan kayong budget. using this equation income - savings = expenses, maseset nyo ang mga priorities nyo and in no time mabibili nyo ung bahay sa desired timeframe nyo :)

    habang tumatagal pataas nang pataas ang mga presyo ng bahay. pataas din nang pataas ang mga rental prices. unless magkaroon ng economic reasons para mag drop ang mga presyo mas maganda makapagsimula agad kung long term ang plan tumira sa AU. you may be saving enough pero with inflation humihina ang purchasing power natin.. applicable ito kung goal nyo talaga bumili ng property kasi ang iba mas preferred nila mag rent kaysa magbayad ng mortgage

    Agree... With renting kasi, it is all expense eh...

    With mortgage payment, it is a mixture of asset (equity in your house that you are paying for) and expense (the interest portion you are paying the bank)...

    Kahit anong mangyayari naman, if wala ka bahay, chances are magrerent din tayo... So as early as possible, start saving up and aim to get your own house. :)

    Hope to do this within the next 2 yrs or so...

    Question guys; if hindi ma-afford ang 20% downpayment; gaano ka laki ang lender mortgage insurance? I know this is relative to the loan amount but how much percentage are we talking about here?

    Thank you @JCsantos...

    Hindi pala ganun din kalakihan ang LMI - akala ko aabot sa halaga na equivalent to a brandnew car... :)

    lamok man ito sa paningin, pagkagat ng bayaran mararamdaman mo pa rin :p
