Sign up for email alerts. Most real estate websites give you the ability to subscribe to their online notification service and receive periodic emails outlining new listings within desired criteria. It’s the easiest and quickest way to receive this information; in many cases you will receive the property details prior to the rest of the public, giving you advanced time for viewings or even to put in an offer. Sign up for our email alerts today.
To find information on the areas you are interested in buying many real estate websites provide suburb profiles with very detailed information such as median sale prices, population demographics, percentage of rental properties vs. homeowners in the area and local facilities such as schools. You can view our suburb profiles attached to each property.
If you can, get a feel for the area you are looking in. Take a drive on the weekend and visit some home opens in the particular suburbs you’re interested. Chat to local estate agents and really get a feel for the safety, look and appeal of the suburb. Visiting home opens also gives you an idea of pricing which will help you determine a budget.
If you’re an investor or an overseas purchaser, then it’s best to use the services and expertise of an agent. They will give the best advice and help you achieve your specific goal. In many cases they will help you with your search, and organise inspections on your behalf. Contact us to find out how Teasdale Estate Agents can help you.
