Research: Thoroughly research the area you’re looking to gain an understanding of what’s out there and available. What has sold recently and what is currently on the market? How many beds, bathrooms and car spaces do you need? We’re sure you’re probably working with a budget, have you looked a little above and a little below your price range?

Save yourself the hassle, use the Professionals! Use a broker. They can take the stress and time out of it for you, especially if you’re a little unsure or it’s not your area of expertise. If you’re looking to go that one step further to get you in the best position possible; get pre – approved finance. This can really strengthen your position when it comes to placing an offer.
What about after the sticker goes on?: Once you’ve found the perfect home ensure you hire professionals to facilitate building and pest inspections. Do your research here, there are many inspectors available so get multiple quotes and see what services they actually offer. These inspections vary in not only cost but what level of inspection you require, some look at only the structural side whilst others can offer extensive views in regards to the maintenance, giving you that peace of mind.
It’s also imperative that you pick not only a settlement agent but also an agent who is proficient at their job. This can really help if there are any sticky situations! Ensure you shop around for quotes as they’re also very competitive on pricing.
