We often hear the fear mongering about the ‘hidden costs’ of building. The upgrades, the site costs and the variations. The banter is enough to scare the inexperienced home builder out of the home building market and into the home buying market. But what about the ‘hidden costs’ of buying? Stamp Duty is just one of a number of costs that people may not consider when buying an established home. There’s also massive agents commissions and seller profits. Did you know that the extra and hidden costs for someone who has owned a home before buying a new $400,000 home in Victoria generally exceeds $30,000? That’s assuming $16,370 in Stamp Duty as calculated by the State Revenue Office of Victoria in June 2017 and a 3.5% agents commission. But what if there was a way to not pay those exuberant costs? What if some of those costs could be put into your actual home instead of making money for someone else.
