Event description

Description

In 1982 – when our parents bought their first homes – the average New Zealand house price was just under $46,000. Today it is 12 times that – $585,000.


A lot has changed since our parents first started out. Not only are house prices much higher, but culturally we get married later and move around more.


That's why at this First Home Buyers seminar, we're not only going to walk you through the changes that have happened since our parents bought their first homes.


We'll also walkthrough:


  • How you can get money from the government (up to $20,000) to put towards the deposit for your home
  • How you can use your Kiwisaver to pull that deposit together
  • The questions you should ask yourself to see whether buying a house is right for you at all (for some people it isn't)
  • Where the best place to buy is for millennials, along with what the buy and when to buy


We'll also give you the tools so that you can personally (and privately) walk through your own numbers. This is so you can see if you are already in a position to step up onto the property ladder.


By coming along to this seminar, you're not saying you definitely can buy your first home. Nor are you saying that you necessarily want to buy your first home.


But what you are doing is seeking out the knowledge and information that may allow you to take your first step to become a homeowner – much sooner than you might think.


Ed and Chrissy will be presenting their seminar in Christchurch on Wednesday 2nd October at 5:30 pm for a 6:00 pm start at the Crowne Plaza Christchurch.


Tickets are free and include a spread of food and drinks after the seminar.


The tickets will move fast, so get in quick to secure yours - and take the first step towards creating the financial future you want through property investment!
