City Press, in partnership with Capitec, will be taking a first-time home buyer through the process from beginning to end. Through the journey we will help you understand what it takes to become a homeowner.

  • How do you mortgage proof your budget?
  • What costs will you incur?
  • How do you make the most of your home loan?
  • How to work out what mortgage you qualify for?

Whether you are upscaling, downscaling, buying your first home or investing in your second, the principles remain the same.

Over six weeks we will answer your questions and, using a real buyer scenario, demonstrate all the preparations you should make and pitfalls to avoid.
