The Great Australian Dream - A Guide to Buying Your First Home

The Great Australian Dream is a must-have for anyone considering entering the property market. As property prices soar, the "great Australian dream" of owning your own home is slipping out of reach for many Australians, especially generations X and Y. This book arms readers with the tools and information they need to confidently and successfully enter the property market.

A practical, realistic and independent guide, The Great Australian Dream covers the spectrum of the home-buying process, from saving for a deposit and selecting the right loan, to choosing a home, managing a mortgage and becoming an investor.
