Knowing is half the battle, you should always begin your plans to buy a new property with research. Become familiar with property values in the area you want to buy. Utilise the internet and physical checks of properties to gain a better understanding of the value and condition of properties in the area. This will ensure confidence when making your offer to purchase.
Come prepared. Make doubly sure that you can afford to buy the property you want. Visit a finance broker to do the numbers and know your limits. Having your finance be pre-approved and ready to go will put you in a stronger position to make a winning offer.
Be ready to pull the trigger. When you’re confident a property is right for you and safely within your budget, be ready to lock it in at a moment’s notice. You don’t want someone to beat you to it, forcing you to spend what could be months looking for another suitable property.
Everyone will always find one or two things wrong with any new property they buy, maybe the truly perfect property was just a little too far over budget. But no property is perfect. Come prepared to compromise a little and don’t let perfection be the enemy of good!
Once an offer has been made, it’ll be wise to have inspections done. You’ll want building and pest inspections before anything else and a possible search of the body corporate records. When buying a unit, you may put the above as conditions in the contract to give you more negotiation room.
It’s normal to feel nervous or afraid once you’ve just bought a property. This is a normal feeling, do your best to have no regrets! Have confidence in your decisions and enjoy your new property!
