Buying A House...In This Economy!?

View descriptionShare

Ah, the Australian dream... or as we like to call it, the Australian f**king nightmare.

The affordability crisis, the housing bubble, the first home buyers scheme - does this stuff fill you with anxiety? Join the club.

We wanted someone to sit us down and tell us everything we actually need to know about buying a house so we've brought in property manager Fleur Schrader to help us figure out if home ownership is right for us.

Plus, we'll hear from mortgage broker Anthony Alabakov to demystify the schemes and hacks we can use to save our precious dollars if we decide to take the leap.
