5 STEPS TO BUYING PROPERTY

1. Arrange Finance

How much you can borrow will depend on the lender – we recommend talking to hockingstuart Finance. You'll need to cover the deposit (generally 10%) and factor in Stamp Duty. Don't let repayments adversely affect your ability to enjoy a normal life.

2. Start your search

Register with early alert and receive details of properties that match your search criteria. Pick up a copy of red magazine from your local hockingstuart office. You can also see our properties for sale on our website and other sites such as realestate.com.au and domain.com.au.

3. Make an inspection

Check inspection times on our website or in red magazine. Have a builder inspect the property if you have any structural concerns. Read the Section 32 Certificate (Vendor Statement) and the Contract of Sale and seek advice from a solicitor or qualified conveyancing agent.

4. Make an offer

You can make an offer before a property’s auction date. To be accepted, it will need to be in the vicinity of what the vendor is expecting from the auction. Your hockingstuart agent can provide advice and present your offer to the vendor.

5. Buy the property

Talk to the selling agent. If the property is to be auctioned, the agent will make sure your bids are noted. If it’s a private sale, the agent will tell you the best way to submit your offer.
