    We are out here on a sub class 457 visa and would like to hear from anyone on same visa that has bought property. Want to know if you can buy a previously occupied house on this visa because we were told that you can't, but that we can buy a brand new house. Is there anyone out there who has bought a house on this visa and how did they go about it?

    Hi,

    you can buy any house if it is to live in,as your main home, with any visa, if it is a temp visa you will need to get FIRB approval and as Andrew says this is normally a formality and the selling agent will normaly take care of all the paperwork for you. If you want to buy property for investment, this is when it has to be a new house, or house/land package if you are on a temp visa and again this is not normaly a problem it just takes a bit longer.
