Making Your Property Search Easy – Avoid Unexpected Complications
There’s always a level of risk involved when you decide to start looking at property for sale – after all, as one of the largest financial undertakings for most Australians, a little bit of intimidation when you’re about to sign that dotted line would be expected.
However, a clear set of goals, a little responsibility, research and planning can go a long way to ensure the end of your search is a happy one.
Beginning with a wish-list is good idea – having a clear set of ideas and goals that you want your property to fulfill will help eliminate unsuitable options faster and narrow the scope for your final choice.
Organising pest and strata inspections will highlight any potential problems with the property – it’s better to know before you purchase rather than after. This will also give you leverage to negotiate for a favourable price or simply walk away.
A thorough analysis of the property market can help you estimate the current value of any prospective properties as well as the forecast growth of its value.
Make sure you’re fully satisfied with both the house, the price and the terms of your mortgage package before signing along that dotted line – it’s a long commitment and you want to be sure you’re making the right choice.
