    Can We Buy??

    Hi everyone, we have our application going through for a State Sponsored Skills visa in WA. Aiming to be over around October/November. Going over as a roofer but own a company as general builders in UK so hopefully can find some work in OZ without having to beg!! We are expecting to go into a holiday let for the short term when we arrive while we are looking for something permanent but will also look for short term rental if available while we are driving up and down the coast on our home hunt. We have just been told that we can only buy a new property/land and new build until we have been granted an Oz passport. I haven't been able to find anything to clarify so was hoping that someone could help us please. It will obviously make a big difference to our strategy.Thanks.:unsure:

    land for a dollar:)))

    Just thought I'd let you know what I've been reading on oz. Yes i'ts true some oz government was offering land for a dollar but you had to buil within the year and i'ts out in the sticks. The government is also offering $21,000 towards your first home for a period. And if you want cheapish land Russel Island is offering land for $45,000 dollars upwards. And have you checked out kit homes for oz their fab and you can build your own, if you want. just google kit homes in oz and have a look. I'm hooked on them. So what realy anoys me is when they have WDU programe on they should show them some of these homes too, instead of all the expensive homes. Not enjoying the programe this time round:(((:jiggy: Cheers briggy xxx:)))
  4. We currently have a land and house package for sale due to a change in our financial circumstances. The property is due to be completed in 4 to 5 months time. The property is located in Melbourne, Featherbrook Estate, Point Cook. Purchase Price was $320,000 Lowset 3 bed, 1 bath, 1 garage, backyard. It is a whole new village which will have a shopping Centre, Medical Centre, Recreational facilities, Primary School etc. We have purchased this property from Central Equity, you can find out more details of the project on thier website www.centralequity.com.au Point Cook is an up and coming area and is only 20 minutes from Melbourne City Centre and there are also rail links. We have taken the Investment Package option which will guarentee us rental income of $15,450 for the 1st year. We also have a big reduction on stamp duty and will only have to pay $7,000. We have paid a 10% deposit which converts to $32,000 and need to obtain a 90% mortgage which we are unable to do as my partner has had to taken a drop in his wages. We are very reluctant to sell this property as we know it is a good investment for the future which is why we would prefer a partner to invest another 10% for equal profit. Failing this we will need to sell quickly so we are willing to look at any sensible offers with regards to forfieting a percentage of the 10% $32,000 we have already invested. There is another option of being a non contributing partner where we will have a contract drawn up and for just having your name on the mortgage you will be paid a certain percentage at the time of resale, we can go through the particulars in detail and come to an agreement on the terms. This option basically means that you will have no financial commitment to the property e.g paying any mortgage repayments but will have your name on the mortgage for us to be able to be albe to obtain the finance. We currently live in Woody Point, Redcliffe Peninsular and have been here for several months, please feel free to contact us if you are interested or have any ideas on how we can go about saving our investment. Theresa or Andy on 07 3283 6760 or (Andy's Mobile) 0414 713273 or (Theresa's Mobile) 0414713236 Thanks you for taking the time to read this.:frown:
  5. Hello all, One of the many questions buzzing round in my head at the mo is should we have a people carrier hire car waiting for us at the airport or just grab a taxi to get to our rental??? Can't decide and need to book as we leave quite soon. Going to hire a smaller car for a week anyway but thought a people carrier be good for all our luggage and then we would have transport to get to a cheaper hire car place to bookthe smaller car next day..does that make sense or am I waffling??............ Or should we just get a taxi, then get another taxi next day to cheap hire car place? (we land 01.40 hrs) The benefit of experience appreciated as always x
  6. Hi, I am from a Chinese background, but used to live in NZ for 10 yrs and have now been in Sydney about 4 yrs. Am looking move to QLD next yr or so (as my parents always want to live there but they still live oversea). I know this forum is great for many newcomers, but I was just wondering if anyone knows anything about Asian community in GC (around Ormeau or Pacific Pines, because my parents can't speak English very well) Anyway, this weekend I will be GC for a couple of days with a friend, will be there for a short break and also get to know around the area. I have seen a few developers on line, for example, a house and land package with $400k-$450k... Is it too good to be true?? Any personal experience in those house & land package? Any room for negoation? Also, how's the financial service indutry in Brisbane and GC, as I am looking to live between these two cities.. Thanks in advance guys.

  12. Hi All, I am new to this site and join in aim of meeting some new people! I am a 23 year old pom who has emmigrated to Australia in April 2005 on a prospective marriage visa.... we finally got hitched on November 12th! So to all of you'ze thinking it cant be done... have faith in yourselves and your relationships, and like my nan always says...'keep ya chin up'!! I have found it very hard moving here away from all my family and friends, and have found it extreamily difficult to settle and make friends, so if anyone else here is in the same position, or would like to stop for a chat, please do.... I could do with lots of social conversations!!!! Love Binbin! xx
  13. Hi all, I have a question: Does anyone know if there are any issues/problems with a 475 visa holder purchasing and obtaining a mortgage for a new Home & Land package from a builder? By this I mean purchasing a lot and having a home built upon it. I know that a similar subject has been discussed on some other sites, particularly as it relates to purchasing a pre-existing home (i.e. need FIRB approval, usually a 20% down payment, etc). Really I am specifically curious if there are issues with 475ers buying a lot and having a home built on it. Please feel free to share your experiences and thanks for your help/advice! Regards, Aren -

    Land for sale Maroochy River

    Hi We are selling our beautiful block of land. The plot is one and a quarter acres in Mountview Estate, Plot 6 (the corner plot) cnr Belverdere Pl and Wants Rd, Maroochy River. (Off the Yandina-Coolum road). It is a 12 min drive to the beach and easy access to the motorway. The view is amazing at the base of Ninderry mountain. We love this plot and we had plans to build a lovely home (plans available) but have decided that we wish to be in a place without such a big garden . The estate is new and people are building at the moment so now is a perfect time to see where a house would fit the most on the block. The estate can never be built out etc so it will always have space and be free from apartments etc. The price is around the $340 000 mark (can be discussed). I can send photos by e-mail if anyone would like to see. Enjoy your day! Kama
  15. Hi all, Although this is a long way off for us but can't help but day dream about the day we finally get to oz but it got me thinking.....when would be the best time of year to arrive. I have a daughter who will be 6 or nearly 7 by the time we go, so we will be at school. Is best to leave after the UK school year has finished or is best to go in the Oz summer holidays so she starts her new school when oz start there new school year. Look forward to replies. Mandisfam
  16. BLIGH GREENFIELD STUDY REVEALS LAND, LOTS OF LAND Premier Anna Bligh has announced the State Government would fast-track planning for development of 17 greenfield sites in South-East Queensland, as part of its plan to tackle housing affordability. Ms Bligh said while the Government was limited in its ability to influence housing prices, she was determined to do everything possible to tackle the issue of affordability. "I want the Australian dream to be alive and well here in Queensland, particularly for young people wanting to own their first home. "I want to see land being turned into new homes for Queenslanders as quickly as humanly possible and this investigation looked at 42 greenfield areas - containing more than 40,000ha of undeveloped land. "As a result - the Government will remove any regulatory hurdles slowing the development process on 12 sites: • Maroochydore, Meridian Plains, on the Sunshine Coast; • Market Drive and North Lakes in Moreton Bay; • Upper Kedron and Rochedale in Brisbane; • Coomera and Helensvale on the Gold Coast; • Springfield and Redbank Plains in Ipswich; and • Kinross Road and South-East Thornlands in Redlands. .For full article visit Our emigration to the Sunshine Coast Australia

  18. :smile:Hi all, well we just got back from Melbourne and it was my first time in Australia, verdict? We really liked it, I cant say we loved it we never had enough time, but yes we are now sure and have decided it is for us. We had a lady come and tour the burbs with us and show us around and we fell in love with Berwick , we also liked Glen Waverly and Wheelers Hill. That was before the company told us my OH would be based in Williamstown!!!!! Back to the drawing board. My three kids loved Melbourne Zoo and I have to say I did too, the Melbourne museum was also a great day out, my OH had to go into the office for a couple of days so the kids and I were left to our own devices. We felt safe and secure in the city and on public transport and the people were all so nice. I even drove around myself one day to have a look at some other places and found the driving brilliant great big cars all automatic lovely wide roads (think I may have went through a few tolls?) All in all it was a really great experience, all that is left for us to do is tell them that he will take the job and sell the house!!!!!!!!!!! :wideeyed:

    buying land in NSW

    Hey ! My husband and I are based in Jersey at the moment but in the process of applying for my spouse visa (he's an aussie)... we are looking at buying a piece of land in NSW and have a couple of questions.. When do you pay stamp duty ? On the settlement date or before ? As we are only buying land (we'll build a house once we get to oz), I assume we can't apply for first time buyers until we build ... is that right ? What is the timeline in buying land.... ie. when do you pay solicitors etc ? Thanks Linzi
  21. Hi All, We are moving to Perth hopefully in June/July this year. We have PR visas, which we validated last June, and have bought a plot of land, which has been paid for. (We've remortgaged here, and hope to let it for a couple of years, before we decide where to settle.) Does anyone know if we will be able to get a mortgage to build a house using the value of the land, before my husband gets a job, so that we can get on with the process of building the house before waiting for him to get a job and for a few months salary to come in? Also, can anyone give us a rough idea of any other living costs in the first few months, such as deposit for a rental, rent for 3 months, cost of buying and running a 2nd hand car, bills, food etc. We hope to get somewhere in the northern suburbs of Perth, and need at least 3 bedrooms. Thirdly, we have a new baby who I am just in the process of applying for a passport and a sponsorship visa for. I know we have to declare that we will provide for her for the first two years and that we can't claim benefits, which we wouldn't be wanting to do anyway. However, does anyone know if this includes family allowance? Do you get any child benefit in Oz at all, or not? I know we would be able to get medicare support which is good. Any advice, answers to all or part of this message will be gratefully received. Cheers, The jp's
  22. We've decided that we would like to have a place of our own and are in the process of looking at designs. But the big issue is sourcing the land. We've seen a few plots on the internet and hoping to take a drive out to look. Please can someone help with regard to the process? Looked at some of the new build house and land packages, the designs are great but the plots are very small, not very much garden and we've been informed that there are waiting lists for these developments. Now trying desperately to find a nice plot through different estate agents. when we do find a plot if its say $200, 000 can you haggle like in the Uk? or do they usually go to closed bids? Also can someone explain the administrative logistics? Any help would be really appreciated. Monty
  23. Hi Can anyone enlighten me We are looking to purchase some land from an on site agent which is very popular, do you actually pay asking price or will they barter. Also would you say it is cheaper to go with a house builder which have show room or a local company who arrange house design and building. Do you have to pay stamp duty on a new house and if so how much and also do you get the money back for first time buyers in oz how does it work. We are on the Sunshine Coast so if anyone can recommend a builder i would greatly appreciate it. Look forward to all your comments. Sara
  24. Hi, Myself and my family (fiance,3y old son & 5y old Daughter) are in the final stages of our visa application and are just awaiting the actual visa case number to come through, so it shouldn't be too long before we leave rainy Dublin for the sunny shores of Sydney, we were wondering if anyone out there has had any experience in purchasing land (we are looking around the east Hills area, as far east as Pymble and north as Hornsby) and getting a house built through one of the established House Build companys such as AV Jennings. Also we'd appreciate it if anyone could point us in the right direction to which area's might be the best ones to settle down with two young kids. Thanks

    house and land packages

    Hi All, Can anyone explain what the deal is with house and land packages, e.g.what are they, how do they work, why are they different to just buying a house and finally and most importantly why they seem so cheap? I've just been browsing realestate.com for property in Mount Barker and there are some of these packages up for about $260,000, brand new with 3/4 beds, ensuite etc, they just seem too good to be true, whats the catch? Thanks in advance, Bec x
