Ok, so my PR was granted last week. I'm already in Adelaide as was on a temp visa and I'm renting in warradale.
I'm keen to buy somewhere. My Qs are...
Can I gain a home loan so soon after getting my PR? I'm in casual locum work but aim to get a permanent job at the RAH (where I locum).
Has anyone used the Home Start SA Gov home loans? I can't help but feel there's a catch here! Would you recommend going to a bank as opposed to using Home Start?
While I plan on living in the house I buy, I also want an investment. What areas in Adelaide are worth investing in. I like it where I am but would be keen to be slightly closer to the city, and I'm more beach than hills but not opposed to it.
Basically I'm not sure where to start or if this is even possible for me! I do have savings of course. I'm just not sure how to get started!
Any info at all would be appreciated.
