Pre-purchase checklist

Making sure that the Surrey Hills real estate you are buying is the right one for you in terms of price, location, value, size and lifestyle means doing your research and knowing what you can afford.

Here are a few tips to get you started on the right foot:

  • Get pre-approved for a loan before looking at property for sale in Balwyn and other suburbs. This will help you define your price range. Take into account future considerations when you are working out what you can afford such as getting married or having children.
  • Budget for interest rates to be at a two percent higher level than they are now and see if you can still afford the repayments.
  • Check out all your costs and expenses before you sign: including taxes, insurance, maintenance, council and strata fees etc, if applicable.
  • Organise a professional property inspection. The cost of this is minimal compared to the cost of buying a property that requires extensive and unforeseen repairs.
  • If there is an owners corporation involved, get a copy of the most recent owners corporation minutes to help identify problems and proposed repairs to other units and common areas.
  • Do a pre-settlement inspection to be sure there are no surprises.
  • Know what your cooling-off period is during which you can withdraw from the sale. It’s common (and permitted) for buyers to organise pest, building and strata inspections during this time.
