• Walk like Joel



    If you want to play the home-buying game (but don’t know how), walk like Joel…

    The sooner you start, the sooner you could win

    For Joel, life was a journey to be enjoyed. Being a creative thinker, a freelance designer, part-time DJ and a full time gamer kept him pretty busy! But with so much going on (and he wasn’t the best with money) Joel didn’t have time to play the home-buying game.

    Know how to play

    When it came to buying a home, Joel’s biggest problem was not knowing what he was playing for. Did he need a one bedroom flat just for himself?  Or a 3 bedroom property where he could work from home and rent out the spare room to help with the mortgage? As a solo buyer, would he ever be able to compete with double-income buyers?

    With so many choices to make and obstacles to overcome, Joel was overwhelmed.

    Learn the rules

    With RAMS on his side Joel discovered what you needed to know. So, Joel met his local RAMS Home Loan Specialist and became a part-time home loan expert. 

    Power up your game plan

    With a handy list of helpful instructions Joel created a plan. He discovered what kind of buyer he was, got advice on paying solo, found 10 ways to fast-track his savings and moved back home to save for a deposit. He even found the safest way to get into the market and planned ahead for unexpected costs, so he knew what dangers lurked ahead.

    Become a home buying winner

    By following his game plan with creative ingenuity, Joel came out on top in his home-buying quest.

    Joel is now in the property market and already planning his next, big life move.
