This practical guide covers all aspects of buying property, from buying a piece of history to building from scratch to signing on the dotted line.

  • Work out whether you're ready to buy - find out whether you're ready for the commitment of buying property, financially and psychologically

  • Focus in on the right property for you - determine your 'must haves' and 'like to haves', and whether you'll need to make a trade-off between these and your preferred location

  • Decide what kind of property you want - discover if your best option is to buy off the plan, find an established property or build yourself

  • Deal with property professionals - cut through real estate agent spin and understand how buyers' agents work

  • Find the right finance - choose the home loan that suits you and your finances

  • Negotiate a great deal - move smoothly through the buying and settlement process, whether buying at auction or through private treaty sale
