FREE First Home Buyers Tutorial Guide
An introduction to real estate and what First Home Buyers can expect when buying for the first time.
Who is this Tutorial for?
This is a short introductory guide for First Home Buyers looking to enter the real estate market.
First Home Buyers are often the ones who make the most costly mistakes when buying property for the first time. The truth is, no one ever teaches us how to buy a house and so we fumble our way through the process, unbeknown to the pitfalls that can de-rail our experience.
Since the process of buying property can be incredibly complex, even for those a little more experienced, a bump in the road is easy to come by, and often those thinking of buying their first home don't even get started because the whole process can seem overwhelming right from the get-go.. and so they procrastinate and never end up owning their own piece of real estate to call home.
This guide is designed to introduce you to a few of the basic concepts and steps involved in the buying process, and inspire you to begin your journey with confidence.
I identify 6 common mistakes that First Home Buyers make so you can recognise them before they happen in your own buying journey, and I discuss my own personal first home buying experience and how I knew it was the right home for me.
For a complete step by step guide to buying your first home, enrol in my First Home Buyer Startup E-Kit, which can be found in this Masterclass series.
Ultimately, this E-kit will give you all the tools you need to remove the stress of buying, and make your first purchase a huge success!
This is the guide I wish existed when I purchased my first home back in 2001.
After more than 20 years as a professional Real Estate Agent, Buyer's Agent and Property Investor, I'm excited to share with you my insights into the property world, and put you ahead of the rest of the Buyers out there.
From humble beginnings as a first home buyer at just 20 years of age, Wendy quickly realised that property was her passion, and at 23, co-founded her first real estate agency in the Queensland city of Gladstone.
It was at this time that Wendy began acquiring residential properties for her personal investment portfolio, all of which significantly increased in value within just a few years of purchase.
Since 1997, Wendy has played a key role in real estate transactions for both buyers and sellers and has been featured in numerous local and national property publications, including Domain, Your Investment Property Magazine, Australian Broker, and The Courier Mail.
Wendy has educated audiences around the country both on and off-line through her blogs, video series #buyingWendysWay and partnered speaking events, and believes that by sharing her own personal experiences, industry insights and investment knowledge, she can help others make better decisions when buying property.
Wendy has represented local, interstate and international clients in property transactions exceeding $55 million in purchased property to date.
