Steps to Searching for a house – What does our full search entail?

- Review your finances and budget – this needs to be done before we start. This way you won’t be disappointed later when you find a house and miss out.

- We identify suburbs that fit in with your lifestyle where we know they are within your budget.
- Now we conduct a comprehensive search using sales history – we see what is currently on the market, what has recently sold and check what has been taken off the market.
- We begin the search to find those houses that meet your needs and eliminate those that don’t. You will be presented with a short list of the best options by video so you can see how each property meets your needs.
- For those that you like we organize inspections with you.
- Once you have made your decision we negotiate the best deal and terms
