Property buyer's guide

Partnering with you to buy your home or investment property.

In addition to lifestyle considerations, such as choosing a location and the right type of property, there are also many finance considerations to be made, and it can be difficult to navigate your way through the mountain of information. You may not even have the time to do so.

That's why we developed the BOQ Specialist Property Buyer's Guide for accountants.

In the guide, we have made it easy for you to focus on what is important as you consider your financing options. We encourage you to read this booklet and to think about how - at the outset – you can make this purchase work best for you now and in the future.


The guide includes:


  • Buying your first home
  • Saving and borrowing for your home
  • Finding the right loan
  • Five steps to home loan approval
  • Finding your first home


  • Property checklist
  • The buying process
  • Your next home (improvement)
  • Buying an investment property
  • Refinancing your home loan
