Are you in the market to buy a home?
Ingram discussed the following checklist for deciding if you can afford to buy a home:
Have you got a deposit saved?
Do you have enough money to cover transaction (e.g. bond registration, transfer fees, etc.) and moving costs?
Do you have an emergency fund for unplanned costs?
Is your income stable and are you sure you can repay the full monthly costs (i.e. mortgage, rates/levies, insurance and maintenance expenses, etc.)?
- Are you planning to stay in the house for eight years or more?
