Thinking About Buying?
At Raine and Horne Innisfail, we know buying a property is a big decision. It does not matter whether you are a first home buyer, an investor, or someone wanting to relocate. So, let us share some important tips and advice to help you on your way to buying the property of your dreams.
Research the area, you are looking to live in or invest in, research the sale history in the area, features the area has to offer, such as beaches, parks, tourist attractions, the rental market and the properties on the market. Researching will also give you a good indication of distances from the best schools, shopping centres and work locations. You will want to know the area is right for you and you are investing in the property you want.
Speak to a financier or your bank, so that know what you can borrow and what properties you can afford based on that price range. It is always beneficial to have your finance pre-approved when making an offer. It demonstrates to the seller that you are serious. If you don’t have a financier or your bank isn’t looking to lend. Come and see us, we can organise to put you in touch with someone who can help. Remember ‘We’ll look after you’. Take a look at the Raine & Horne 'Our Broker" page.
When you make an offer on a property, we highly recommend having these inspections done. If it’s your dream home you are buying or an investment property, you need to know if you are going to be up for any further costs involved. A few hundred dollars could save you thousands.
Making an offer
We know as a buyer you may need to negotiate and have certain terms presented to the seller, so when making an offer, best practice is to make this in writing. Why? A seller is more likely to take this seriously and take the time to process the offer. Vendors tend to be more willing to negotiate with a serious buyer.
