Tips On Buying Your First Home

So you’ve decided to move in your first home.  People move for many reasons such as a new job, want a bigger home for a growing family or just wanting to start afresh.  When moving home there are tons to think about.

One of the first things that should be considered is the home report that’s given. With this, you get a feel if the property you want to buy is structurally sound. Old traditional homes that are for sale need a report while new builds don’t.

While looking at a property to buy it’s vital that you get as much information about it as possible before a decision is made whether to make an offer or not.

Something else to think about is that if a property has been on the market for a significant period – it might be worth submitting an offer under the asking price as there’s more chance of it being accepted.

An ‘offer over’ sign means that all offers should be over the asking price. The seller will look at all the offers received once they have been submitted by the asking date.  When submitting the offer it should be based on the health and value of the property – not a random number picked from the sky.

On occasion, if you’re the only submitted offer – it can still be highjacked by another buyer.  If the contract isn’t signed someone can still come in and take your sale away.

Once all the contracts are signed you complete the completion of purchase.  This is when you submit the whole balance to the seller once you enter the property.  If its a new build – the payment should be made before moving in.
