Would you say you are a city person? Do you live in urban sprawl and love nothing more than seeing gentrification going on around you? Your friends are close by and you don’t have to venture far to find what you need at any given time.

You know the streets like the back of your hand, you know exactly where the speed cameras are, the red light cameras, even which lane to be in on any given road, that is almost assured to move faster.

Are you a regional lover, not so far from the City, that you can’t drive there in an hour ½. Perhaps the water draws you to your region. The ability to walk along the waterfront, or to sit in a cafe and look out at others as the frolic in the beach and water.

There’s less traffic, maybe not during school holidays and peak holiday season, but even then you rationalise, that they have to travel here to enjoy your region, whereas this is your backyard, you get to enjoy this every day. And although you may not even venture into the water, the ebb of a rolling tide still mesmerises you as much today as the first time you can ever remember.

It’s hard to get ahead in this day and age.

yourtown have gone out of their way to bring you two Prize Homes to choose between and I think it is fair to say you are going to be influenced by your love for one lifestyle or the other. It’s hard to get ahead in this day and age.

Borrowing enough to buy a home and start that next phase of your financial journey can be really daunting. Can you save up enough for a deposit? It seems for every $5,000 you can set aside as house deposit money, houses have gone up in price by $40,000. So it seems you just can’t get ahead of the game.

Even if you can save up for the deposit, either on your own, or with your significant other, the next burning questions becomes; “Will one of banks lend you enough to buy something half decent and if they will, can you afford the mortgage payments on top of all the other costs that you never knew existed.?”

You will rack up debts like wheely bin fees, rates, water rates, building insurance, contents insurance, lawn mowing, maintaining such as falling down fences, power deposit, NBN installation fee, Netflix or Stan, repairs on broken washing machines, taps that leak, or light fittings with water flowing through them, or you discover termites.

The harsh reality is; that many first time home owners really are out in the blue and don’t fully comprehend, how much the ongoing costs are going to impact on your income. You may very well find your income is in fact outgoings.

Yet yourtown tickets are just $15 each and you can win a 1st Prize Home and Furniture Package, including gold Bullion, valued at $1,602,497.

This would mean, no madly saving, no more being forced to taking your own lunch to work, trying to commit to your savings plan. No having to approach the bank and having to collate and share every financial facet of your life, your work, your savings, the property you are hoping to buy, your capacity to pay.

If you can secure a loan, then you need to pay the sellers a rates adjustment, pay your solicitor for conveyancing and the costs of actually moving house.

(Hopefully, you have a loyal bevvy of friends who are prepared to give up a Saturday or Sunday) on the promise of an invite to a BBQ once you have settled in where you can cook them up a feast of mince patties and sausages in bread with some caramelised onion. Sounds delicious?

We all have to start somewhere right?

Just one $15 ticket could all make that whole scenario disappear. Imagine how much better your life would be, if you own your own exclusive property, with the only bills falling due are outgoings such as water rates, rates and insurance.

You could focus on saving your earnings towards a second property or spend more on travelling. The options that open up to you are incredible and exciting!

yourtown offers you the chance to choose between an apartment on the Gold Coast or a Terrace house in Sydney’s outskirts.

The apartment is situated at 401/46-48 Pacific Parade Bilinga Qld 4225 on the 4th floor or Kirra Wave, an exclusive luxury boutique complex overlooking Iconic Kirra Beach.

The innovative apartment is sprawled across 2 levels, with bi-fold doors that open up the inside to merge with the front L-shaped balcony. The views from this refreshingly unique apartment are breathtaking and mesmerising.

Watch surfers frolic in the waves on the patrolled beach, or look beyond to catch site of yachts, whales and ships as they pass and fall to sleep listening to the ever present waves collapsing onto the golden sands.

Wake early to watch the sky put on a magical display across the sky and water while you sip on fresh coffee made in your built-in espresso machine.

New Life, New Lifestyle- What it Means to You.

So what it you do win? What then? Well I’m pretty sure you are going to have a few more decisions to make than whether you would prefer to live in a cosmopolitan urban village or overlooking one of Australia’s favourite beaches.

You will need to decide, whether you prefer to move into the home, or if indeed it is too far away from your family and friends, and you prefer to stay close to your existing home.

You will need to decide whether you would prefer to rent out the property and if so, will you rent it out for holiday makers and a larger return, or to a long term tenant, with a steadier flow of rental funds arriving in your bank account.

Will you rent the property out furnished or unfurnished?

Will you borrow against the equity in the property and spend the funds on another home closer to where you currently live?

Will you invest in a business that offers a better return than property rent? Will you invest in shares, because you’ve made money on shares in the past?

Or will you make a clean break and sell the exclusive property for a handsome bounty and invest the funds into other investments you see fit?

As you can see, you have a lot of choices at your disposal. As much as it is your choice, in how you would prefer to move forward. We highly recommend that you seek advice from your trusted accountant or a financial advisor. We will cross our fingers for you.
