Kate’s 10 top tips for buying your new home this weekend
If a home meets 85% of your wish list – buy it! You will never find a home that satisfies you 100%, it takes buyers years to realize this.
Make a wish list and then be flexible – the successful buyers are those that don’t have tunnel vision
Engage with the agent at the open home, we are not the enemy! Buyers who develop a relationship with the Agent are usually the successful purchaser
Don’t be a bargain hunter- the homes that sit around usually do so for a reason – no one else wants them!
If you like a home – act fast and strong before competition begins to mount. Knock the socks off the vendor and they will want to sell to you.
Sitting on the fence and prevaricating gets you a fence – not a home
If you are attending an auction this weekend – go in hard and fast. History shows the strong and confident bidder is the new owner
Do your research well and ask the agent for comparable sales- a great agent is one that supplies this data freely
Don’t cross suburbs – that is when pricing becomes difficult to follow- a property in Cammeray is not going to be the same price in Mosman
Lastly – have fun- it’s a great opportunity to look at some beautiful homes and get ideas on styling and design for your new purchase. And if you come to one of our opens we give out chocolates and water to sustain you!
