Evaluate your Budget
You have to evaluate your financial status beforehand. It is not necessary that you should have enough amount of money to buy a home.

You should be good enough to strike a balance between your expenditure and loan repayment. You need to make a realistic calculation of your savings, amount you need to borrow and fees you have to pay.
Amount of deposit
Home loaners provide the price of the house as a deposit within a range of 5% to 20%. If you are unable to manage the deposit amount, you have to pay Lender’s Mortgage Insurance. For the minimum deposit amount, you have to borrow high loan amount and pay higher interest. It’s better you go for a bigger deposit.
How much miscellaneous fees you have to pay?
While buying a house you have to pay stamp duty which varies from state to state. Normally stamp duty is within the range of 3% to 5%. You are also required to cover fees of conveyancer (lawyer who has expertise in the legal aspects of buying and selling housing property), a builder and pest inspector.
