$10,000+gst

 

Building and pest inspections on one property are included in this fee

 

This is a collaborative service that involves you heavily in the decision-making process of which properties are negotiated on.

 

It should be kept in mind that your life circumstances may change over time and ideally the property will be able to change with you.  For this reason, we pay attention not only to what a property is "today" and how it appears "today" but what you could do with it in the future.  For instance, you might be happy to tolerate that brown kitchen for a period of time while saving funds to improve the aesthetic later.  Or you might be happy with a 2 bedroom home for now but wish to do an extension later on as you can afford it, and as your family grows.

 

To ensure the property hunt is efficient and targeted, we discuss with you in advance pricing and terms you are comfortable with.  We also discuss areas that you like and their compatibility with your budget.  We ensure that it is clear the type of property we should be hunting for before we begin.

Please note

 

  • To ensure the property hunt is efficient and targeted, we discuss with you in advance pricing and terms you are comfortable with.  We also discuss areas that you like and their compatibility with your budget.  We ensure that it is clear the type of property we should be hunting for before we begin. 

  • It is courteous to ensure you can afford to purchase a property before offering on it and as such we require that you have a mortgage pre-approval in place before we being searching (unless you are a cash buyer).  If you do not already have your own, we can direct you to an appropriate mortgage broker to assist you with your financing needs.
