Finding a Property

Buying a home can be stressful. Learn about the types of property ownership and what you should look out for at open homes. Understanding real estate jargon and knowing the questions to ask can help you reduce the risks involved with buying. Speak with Opes Real Estate and we can discuss these options with you.

Researching the Property

When you’ve found the home you want, it’s time to do your homework about the property. You’ll need to gather information about the neighbourhood and the property, know how to spot a leaky home and problem building materials and be aware of any natural hazards. Opes always tries to discover and inform you of any significant issues with a property before you get to the point of contract

3

Making an Offer

Before making an offer, it’s important to confirm your finances and make sure you understand the sale and purchase agreement because it is legally binding. You will need a lawyer, and if you are getting a mortgage, your lender will require a Mortgage Valuation Report. We can help guide you through your options.
