Buying a property: residential real estate
Buying a property can be a daunting prospect, especially if this is your first home purchase.
Between open houses to visit, thousands of print and online advertisements to read and significant financial decisions to make, it is easy to feel overwhelmed.
Enlisting the help of a trusted agency can help you navigate the often-tricky world of residential real estate. With offices across most of major cities, towns and suburbs, we are perfectly-placed to provide you with advice and assistance relevant to your local market.
We can also help you through every stage of the buying process, including finding a property within your price range, organising finance, reports and searches, conveyancing and in some cases, even helping to connect your utilities.
Buying a home – where to begin?
When it comes to buying a property, the first thing you’ll need to do is assess the type of home you want and determine your budget.
For example, first home buyers may be keen to investigate their options for buying an apartment, while parents may be looking to upgrade or downsize, depending on the age of their children.
Regardless of your price range, you’ll find our offers a range of quality listings and your local team can assist you with the research and data you need to make a decision.
We make searching for residential property as convenient as possible – using our website or convenient iPhone app, you’ll be able to view descriptions, maps and even colour photographs of the properties on offer.
When you speak to our agent, we can provide you with further information about the properties that best suit your lifestyle and help you streamline your search to find homes that are easily accessible to schools, public transportation, restaurants and hospitals, and other amenities.
You can also discuss your financial and investment priorities – including immediate rent return, capital gain, lifestyle or any combination of these factors. With this information your agent will be able to better work with you to find the perfect property.
