I just recently graduated my mechatronics engineering degree (Robotics Major) and now about to start a PhD. I've been awarded a RTP stipend of $26k/yr tax free from the Government and have been tutoring at my university for more than three years now of which I earn around $10k/yr. My partner works full time and earns about $52k gross. We're looking at purchasing my dads property which we've agreed on at $500k. We also have a $100k deposit saved. We live in SE QLD and would like to know our options!
