Buying your first home with Frasers Property

Buying your first home with Frasers Property

Are you looking to purchase your first home this year, or know someone who is?

If you've been priced out of the property market for some time, the current less-frenzied market conditions represent a chance for first home buyers to get onto the property ladder. As a first home buyer, this year will be a time when there are many important factors to consider, and we want you to be fully informed of the home buying process so you can enter the property market with confidence and start your very first home buying journey.

And most importantly, we want you to buy a home you’ll be proud of.

  • 01


    Speak with a bank or broker and find out how much you are able to borrow.

  • 02


    Understand what deposit you need. Factor in costs for stamp duty, possible rate rises, and even add a buffer to ensure you’re ready for any unexpected costs that may arise.

  • 03

    Government assistance

    Make sure you understand what Government assistance is available, and what you could be eligible for, and do your sums accordingly.

  • 04

    Where you’d like to live

    Then ‘scope’ the areas to determine what is right for you. Create a checklist to determine your ‘must haves’ or your ‘nice-to-haves’ and make decisions accordingly.

    New vs established

    Consider the benefits of buying brand new, particularly when buying off-the-plan which allows you more time to save, as well as other benefits.

Why consider living in an Ed.Square Home?

  • icon

    AFFORDABILITY. An apartment and townhome is likely to be more affordable than buying a house.

  • icon

    SAFETY. Living at Ed.Square means you’re in close proximity to your neighbours, where you can form great friendships, compared to being the only one in a house.

  • icon

    STYLE. Having a well-designed home of manageable proportions means you have less clutter, and this makes the occasional style update much more affordable.

  • icon

    MAINTENANCE. Large homes on large blocks means weekends cleaning and mowing the lawns, at Ed.Square this can be replaced with spending more time with family and friends and enjoying Ed’s Town Centre.

  • icon

    SIZE. Apartment and townhome proportions are well designed and simply put, convenient. Easy to clean and maintain.

  • icon

    AMENITIES. Unlike houses, Ed.Square apartment owners enjoy a landscaped garden podium featuring barbecue areas and a resort style pool. While townhome owners neighbour their very own pocket park complete with landscaped gardens, barbeque facilities and even a water play feature.
