4. Where in Australia is right for you?
Australia is such a vast country, but a significant amount of it is not populated. If you can, we would definitely recommend making at least one trip over to explore the areas that you are interested in to see what the neighbourhoods there are actually like. This will give you an opportunity to assess all the local amenities.
5. Do you have a set budget, and have you considered everything that needs to be included?
Having a budget planned in advance will be the most important aspect of your property purchase process. A key part of the plan you will need to keep an eye on, is the fluctuating exchange rate
between the Australian Dollar and your home currency, as this can significantly affect the amount you will be spending. Currency markets
are continuously moving and are particularly sensitive to political and economic events – which seem to be in abundance at the current time. This is why we recommend opening an account
with a currency specialist like Halo Financial
– this will give you the opportunity to protect your funds in these uncertain times.
