Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make, so it’s important that where you choose to live matches your lifestyle. And whilst it 

varies for everyone, it’s worth considering. Here are some of things you should think about when you start looking:

  • Access to Transport
  • Schools
  • Shopping
  • Parks and recreational areas
  • Proximity to work, family and friends

This should help you narrow down a general region in which you wish to live.


Before you go any further, it’s important to establish your budget. When working out your budget you’ll need to factor in extra costs such as
conveyancing, state taxes, duties and fees. Speaking to a financial institution or mortgage broker, such as Mortgage Domayne, regarding the right type of loan to suit your needs and obtaining a pre-approval at this stage, can make things a lot easier once you find your townhome. It is also important to understand any rebates or grants you may be entitled to. For further details regarding government grants visit
