Avoid Missing Out On Your Dream Home

Buying real estate can be both stressful and confusing but it doesn’t have to be! As a buyer you have more control than you think when it comes to purchasing a property.


In the last 6 months we have met many buyers at home opens who are disappointed that their dream home is already under contract – perhaps missing out by only a day or two. Quite often, a contributing factor to it being secured early, is the second buyer’s lack of commitment to communicate with agents and request a private inspection at the earliest opportunity.


We can generally sell properties in short time frames for our sellers, partly because we fully manage buyers and their criteria.


Below are some great tips of how you can give yourself a better chance of securing your property.

Some Top Tips For Home Buyers

  1. Follow Wellington & Reeves on social media, this gives you behind the scenes access to juicy information!
  2. Check our website for new listings and download the realestate.com app, turn on notifications and take advantage of its clever features.
  3. Ask as many questions as you can about the market and properties you like.
  4. Begin a conversation with a finance broker, its free and it gives you confidence when making an offer.
  5. Do not be afraid to call or text a real estate agent, we are all here to help!
  6. Consider the 8am or 6pm inspection, we do not all work 9 – 5.
  7. In today’s market, do not assume the property is still available at its first home open – call and ask.
  8. Don’t hope for negotiation in a seller’s market. Offer your highest price and make it one you can live with if your offer should be rejected.
