Goal 1: I want to buy my first home

The first step here is to have a frank and honest conversation about your requirements and talk to a mortgage broker to find out what you can afford. Many first home buyers waste a lot of time looking at properties they can’t or shouldn’t be buying.

For tips and advice, read: What happens when you can’t agree on which house to buy…

And: Why you should be using a mortgage broker

Goal 2: I want to buy an investment property

The type of property you buy is potentially far more important than what you pay for it.

Goal 3: I want to renovate my property

“You can change everything about a property, except where it is.”

A good renovation can add massive value and provide you with an excellent return on investment. A bad renovation can add huge stress to your life, permanently damage relationships and be a surefire way to blow a large amount of money.

The stakes are high!

If you are considering renovating your home I highly recommend checking out a podcast we recorded with Jamee Colman from Namloc Build. He shares a wealth of knowledge which will help you make smart decisions when it’s time to take the plunge. Click here to check it out.

  1. Hi Andrew,
    Just discovered the blog, looking forward to combing through and learning more. I’m trying to educate myself re: investment property. I’m caught in a crossroads – do I bite the bullet and try find a property, or start investing in the NZ property ETF?
    I’m slowly finding out the pro’s and con’s for each, but I’ve run out of crayons trying to explain to myself

    1. Hi Olan, thanks for visiting! One question to consider would be – how settled are you going to be over the next 2-3 years? Eg. Are you going to stay living in one place. This might help you find the right answer. The longer-term your horizon, in other words, the longer you plan to own any property you buy, the safer your purchase will likely be. Hope this helps.
