To be honest lots of suburbs across Brisbane haven't been all that affected property sales wise, the first time buyers grant seems to be keeping things moving. Houses for sale above $500,000 seem to be taking longer to move but i haven't seen a rapid decrease in property prices anywhere.

 

If you have never lived in the area you are moving too and have no personal experience of the place i would be dubious buying straight away,, on the flip side,, if you buy within the next few months you will benefit from the full amount of the first time buyers grant.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Like Cal says.

 

Try and benefit from the 1st homebuyers grant. Although there is a small risk that you may not like Redcliffe (unlikely) even if you do feel like another move, you can then rent the redcliffe home out, and rent somewhere else for yourself. Renting it out will get you into negative gearing as long as your mortgage + expenses is higher than your income from that rent. By not paying too large a deposit on your home and having a higher mortgage, your negative gearing will be higher (business loss offset against personal tax). It's a complicated scenario but an accountant would put you more into the picture than I can.

 

Homes are always a sound investment as long as you think long term........you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain if you buy............renting is always dead money unless you are also renting out to create a negative gearing scenario.

 

Good luck with it.

When we first moved to Australia we bought a house within 2 weeks. We never regretted it and loved the area we lived in. I reckon that if things feel right for you straight away in Redcliffe you should keep your eyes open and if the perfect place comes up then buy and if not then rent for a while. Can you find a short term rental to stay in whilst you make up your mind?

 

Love
