Once you’ve found a property you’re keen on, you might like to arrange a building and pest inspection to ensure there are no visible defects so you can negotiate on the price with confidence and clarity. This is especially important for older properties.
Then if you’re happy with the findings, you can make an offer, either privately or at auction. Before placing an offer or bidding at auction, we suggest organising a conveyancer to help you with the contract and legal paperwork for when you purchase the property. Our partner Conveyancing.com.au can assist you with this process.
If the property is being sold at auction, it’s best to go prepared with a plan of attack. Be sure to take things slow and stick to your budget. A confident approach will help you keep your nerve, and try not to panic if the bidding climbs outside your limit.
