Lance explains how this free coaching workshop will give you the tools and confidence needed for buying your first home.
Whenever we do something for the first time—whether it be starting a new sport, public speaking or the first time behind the wheel—it can be daunting to say the least. And buying a house for the first time can bring about that same sort of sweaty palms and self-doubts and sometimes even more so.
You have worked hard, schooled and studied, saved money, put money into KiwiSaver, and now, in buying a house, you are expected to do something you have never done before and you’re expected to trust people you have never met. Plus, there is more on the line than ever before when it comes to buying a house and it can have the added pressure of very tight timelines. And then someone comes along and asks you why you are so stressed!
Well, here is something I hope will relax you.
If you are looking to purchase your first home and if you’re feeling nervous, stressed and maybe a little lost, then I say to you, that is exactly how you should feel! And this is why for the last four years I have run the First Home Buyers workshops.
At these evening sessions, I explain how the different banks lend, what they are looking for, how to get a loan and unpack what a pre-approval means. And we bring in some of the best minds in the industry …
· You’ll hear from a real estate agent about what is currently happening in the property market, and how to decide on a price to put on a property.
· A lawyer will explain what to look out for when it comes time to write down your offer on the dotted line, giving you peace of mind when offering.
· And often we will have a building inspector to give you the tricks for spotting a warm Wellington home from a cold, damp potential nightmare.
Our hope is that after you have come along to the First Home Buyers Club that you will surprise yourself at how calm and confident you are. That you’ll feel equiped and ready to charge head first into getting your first home.
It’s the perfect opportunity to learn from the industry experts, ask those burning questions and chop down what can seem like a mountain of a job into bite-sized, manageable tasks.
So, come along! Check us out on Facebook or on our website for upcoming First Home Buyers Club. Dates. And it’s totally free-of-charge! I look forward to meeting you, hearing about your journey so far, and answering your questions.
