You only get to buy your first property once. Better do it right!

In this episode of Pocket Money, we take a look at some of the common mistakes that people make when first jumping into the housing market.

To help us through the ins and outs of the first home buyer experience, we've invited our friend and property expert, Michael Yardney back to the studio. You can also find him on the popular Michael Yardney Podcast twice-weekly.

We discuss seven common mistakes that first-time buyers often make from research to finance, and we talk about how to manage the emotions of everything from the loan application to the auction.

This is the first episode in a two-part series about property buying mistakes. Subscribe now so you can get next week's episode, which is all about the things you should avoid as a property investor.
