    Advice for future home owners


    Q: What advice would you give someone looking to buy a home? 

    I think it's get the home loan first, or at least know how much you're going to spend. 

    Research the area. Research the market. Research the agency or the developers. Yeah, just make sure you know what you're getting. 

    It was really finding out what we were both interested in so that we could buy somewhere that we both love. It's not about one or the other. 

    My piece of advice would be save more than you think you have to. Really know that you've got everything covered because when we went to the solicitors, there was just a whole lot of things we hadn't even thought of. 

    You need somebody to understand pretty much the process. 

    Understand the evaluations of the properties as well, 'cause I've got a very long relationship with my specialist and I trust him heaps. So for me, it's a very important part of the process.

      Raymond A Ram is the RAMbassador for RAMS Financial Group. Raymond works with the RAMS team to bring simple, helpful and expert information on home loans and savings accounts to life with his down to earth and cheeky personality. He enjoys seeing everyday Australians turn their dreams of saving for a goal or getting into a home a reality. 

      Growing up in Goulburn, NSW, Raymond was brought up with good old-fashioned Aussie values of hard work and a fair go. It soon became apparent that Raymond wasn't content for the conventional path of grazing, producing the very best wool, and finding a nice sheep to settle down with. So it wasn't long before his passion for performing and his talent as a likeable larrikin shone through - landing him a few roles such as 'RAMlet'. He was even tipped to play RAM-bo at one point but chose to become star of the small screen instead as RAMbassador for RAMS. He now finds this role so much more rewarding.
