Buying a property for the first time can be an exciting but confusing process, so we’ve put together some tips and tools to help you through.
Write down everything you spend over a couple of months/weeks, so you can learn exactly where your money is going (e.g. rent, mobile, Foxtel, electricity, gas, car running costs, groceries, gifts, clothes, insurance etc). Be honest - and factor in some 'fat' for those unexpected expenses.
When that's done, plug it all into the Mortgage Choice Budget Planner and you'll have a pretty easy tool to capture your personal budget.
Once you've finalised your budget, check your bank records and reflect on your strategy regularly to make sure you're meeting your financial goals.
