WELCOME TO BUYERS SECTION

This page contains a fair amount of information important to you, the property and home buyer as well as links to articles of interest. Take time to read through them carefully. See bottom of page for list of resources available.
 
If time is of the essence to you and you would like to appoint one of our agents immediately to help find your perfect house, then by all means do so – but still make the effort afterwards to read through these resources. They will equip you to make correct decisions along the way and also brief you on what to expect and demand from me, your agent.
 
Buying a home is probably the biggest investment most people make, with long-term financial ramifications. It calls for many informed decisions plus good advice from a real estate professional.


WHAT WE OFFER YOU, THE BUYER
THOROUGH PREPARATION
We help you assess exactly what kind of home you are looking for, depending on your needs. Many people, in the excitement of buying actually forget to really consider what features are extremely important to them or even the size required for possible future needs. We will also provide you necessary information on suburbs, such as schooling, developments, transport etc.
 
FINANCE APPLICATION
Our agent will introduce you to necessary finance companies and also assist you in getting pre-qualified, so you know exactly what price range you qualify for. Once a price range is decided on, we provide you with detailed costs that will be involved in such a transaction.
 
SEARCH LEGWORK
Once we have decided on what, where and how much, you relax and we do all the searching and looking around for you. We work through our extensive network of agents, which means, you are not limited to only those properties we have listed but essentially to the entire “For Sale” stock in any area. Unlike most other agents, we will not try and restrict you but provide you maximum choice, which means you get the best options available. We then compile a list of all homes that match your criteria.

If you are leaving our city, we link you to another agent within our network, who will do the same searching for you in your destination city or country.
 
ARRANGING VIEWING
Once we have short listed those you wish to view, your chosen agent will make all the arrangements for viewing and take you through each home, one by one, providing necessary valuation and other important information you will need to make the wisest decision.
 
This saves you an enormous amount of time and frustration on calls, working through a myriad of agents and dealing with cancelled appointments. And of course the value for having an independent professional opinion on the value of each home is immeasurable.
 
MAKING AN OFFER
Once you have made your decision, we will submit an offer on an agreed to starting price. The agent will guide you step by step through the process, advising you along the way. We have years of experience and knowledge to offer you and will undertake all negotiation on your behalf to make sure you get the best deal possible.
 
Negotiation is a skill acquired over time and our doing this for you helps remove emotion from your decision making process.

FINALISING THE DEAL
After the seller has accepted and signed your offer the deal is binding and the paperwork processes begin. We continue to link you to lawyers and other role players and provide you with regular updates on how matters are proceeding until actual transfer date and your move into your new home.
 
In addition, we can introduce you to necessary Inspection Services and other contractors you might require.
 
All along, you can relax, knowing you are in safe, professional hands. Do remember to get a copy of our Relocation Guide so as to make your move happen smoothly and hassle free.
