6 Hot Tips For Homebuyers

8 October 2019

1. Know WHERE you want to live. We come across numerous buyers who rattle off their top 15 suburbs. When speaking with a sales consultant, make sure you condense that list down to a few or an even better one! The best buyers always become an expert on a suburb, so have an idea of what you’re after and the community you envisage yourself being a part of.

2. Get your finances sorted. Do you know how much of the deposit is required to exchange? It could be 5 or 10% of the total purchase price. The last thing you want is to miss out on your dream home because you couldn’t get your ducks in a row. Are you eligible for a home loan?

3. Do your research and due diligence on the suburb, home or block of land.

4. Be proactive and ask questions. Make sure you go through it more than once and bring all decision-makers (if possible).

5. Draw up a budget and stick to it. Know what you can afford before making an offer.

6. When you find a property that ticks all the right boxes put forward your BEST OFFER.
