FINDING THE RIGHT SUBURB TO BUY IN

Nov 3, 2013

Where is the next Onehunga?  Where will the next Ponsonby be?  Ah, that’s the big question.  Happily, there’s a web resource to help you.  

It’s a great website, packed with information and has a cool name: hometopia.co.nz   Want to find the right school zone? The right distance from the CBD?

The right price range?  There’s a groovy tool on the site called “Suburb Sleuth” which lets you do all that and more.

There’s also a bunch of free (and useful) information at “Streetwise Home Buying,” including some great pages such as Leaky BuildingsTo Build or Not to Build?, and LIM Reports.

Plus, it has a whole heap of handy calculators so you can work out life’s most vexing questions, such as:

  • How much can I borrow?
  • How do different loan types compare? 
  • Fix or float?
  • Where can I afford to buy?
  • How can I pay my current mortgage faster? 

and so on.

There’s a lot more there, but we won’t go on about it.  Check it out for yourself.

(Now, just in case you’re wondering: What do you guys get out of this?  The answer is: Nothing.  We just happen to think it’s a great home-grown resource that you should know about!)
