Buying your first home can feel like a scary and massive commitment and hard to navigate the minefield of things to consider before committing to spending your life savings on a place to call your own.
Too many first time house hunters waste thousands of dollars on building inspections, lawyers fees or even hundreds of thousands in lost opportunity on a seemingly minor issue related to a property’s title.
Confidence and knowledge are crucial for success as first home buyers.
Lucia Xiao is passionate about helping Kiwis into homeownership. It’s our companies driving vision.
