Buying property is about the biggest financial commitment you’ll ever have to make.
However it’s also going to be an exciting turning point – one that will almost certainly make the most impact on your lifestyle.
For many it will be something never done before. Selecting the right home in the right area, organising finance and negotiating the sale – it all sounds a little daunting. Yet it isn’t as complicated as you may think!
First National Real Estate agents are trained to assist you to identify your priorities, helping you to find the property that best suits your needs and budget. The advantage of dealing with a network like First National is that your new property can be found by your agent, working in collaboration with thousands of First National agents nationally. All First National offices have technology links that will enable you to view a potential home on the other side of this city, in another state, or even another country.
If you are thinking of buying, a Sales Consultant from First National Framptons would be delighted to talk you through the buying process and any other queries you may have. This comes with no obligation, just the best knowledge and experience.
1. Speak with your financier to arrange the best loan to suit your needs.
2. Prepare a short list of preferred suburbs that suits your lifestyle, bearing in mind affordability and accommodation requirements.
3. Research recent sales. Inspect every property in your preferred area so you have a feel for the prices. Attend all open homes in the area.
4. Join our Active Buyer database to receive updates about inspections and new properties that suit your needs.
5. Develop a relationship with one of our professional sales consultants who specialises in your preferred area. Your sales consultant will be able to advise you of any additional information you may need.
6. If you are considering making an offer through First National Framptons we recommend you indicate your interest to a sales consultant and find the right conveyancer for you.
7. Once negotiations have been finalised, you will be required to sign a sale contract and pay a deposit. Your deposit will be held in a trust account until settlement. You may want to arrange a building and pest inspection through your conveyancer to make sure you are aware of any major defects and pest concerns.
8. On settlement day, the keys will be available once settlement has taken place. On settlement day it is advisable that you do a final inspection before settlement takes place. This is to ensure that the property is in the same condition as when you last inspected it and that all the inclusions are as per the contract you signed.
