You should pay what you can afford

So, how do you know what that is? A good place to start is by checking whether you have what it takes to get a home loan - you let BetterBond pre-approve you for a bond. This tells you what you can afford in terms of bond repayments per month. It demonstrates to sellers and estate agents that you've got a good credit record, you've done your homework, you're serious about buying and the banks are willing to back you.
