Where you want to live

Before you even start looking at individual homes, you will at least need to have some idea of the area that you want to live in. There are a few ways to figure this out. Firstly, look at what you like and don't like about the place where you are currently living. This will help you to have a more clear idea of your preferences. Once you know your preferences, you will want to search for a place in Australia that suits those preferences. The easiest way to find places that meet your preferences is to search online using keywords related to what you are looking for. Only once you have narrowed down where you want to live to at most a few different places can you start looking at the housing options available in those places.


In order to find a home that is right for you, you will need to know what your budget is for a home. Keep in mind that there are also various costs associated with moving home that need to be included in your budget such as the moving company. It doesn't matter how perfect a home is for you, if you are unable to afford it, it isn't right for you.

Size of the home

As well as knowing what your upper limit is from your budget, you will also want to know your lower limit for how big of a house you need. This could be a preference, or it could be a need. If you need a house to be of at least a certain size, you can use that information. If a house doesn't meet your size requirements, you will be able to completely remove it from consideration which will help you to narrow down on the home that you want.
