  1. Speak with your financier to arrange the best loan to suit your needs.
  2. Prepare a short list of preferred suburbs that suits your lifestyle, bearing in mind affordability and accommodation requirements.
  3. Inspect every property in your preferred suburb so you have a feel for the prices. Attend all open homes in the area.
  4. Develop a relationship with one of our professional Sales Consultants who specialises in your preferred area. Your Sales Consultant will be able to advise you of any additional information you may need and also inform you of any new listings that hit the market before they are advertised.
  5. When you find a property that suits your requirements, ask your agent to prepare a Contract of Sale to put forward your offer to purchase. This can be forwarded to your solicitor or conveyancer for their perusal prior to signing.
  6. If the contract is in order sign and arrange for deposit to be paid. The deposit will be held in a trust account until settlement.
  7. The offer will be presented to the seller and if acceptable the seller will sign and execute a binding Contract of Sale.
  8. Any negotiations will be done by your Sales Consultant who will liaise between the buyer and seller.
  9. If applicable to the Contract of Sale, make arrangements for finance, building/pest inspections to be performed by the due date.
  10. Following your solicitors or conveyancer’s advice on the sale contract taking into consideration the building and pest reports (if applicable), you are now able to make an informed decision to proceed with the purchase of the property.
  11. On settlement day it is advisable that you do a final inspection before settlement takes place. This is to ensure that the property is in the same condition as when you last inspected it and that all the inclusions are as per the contract you signed.
