For the average person, navigating how to purchase a property of any kind is an endeavour that is both complex and overwhelming.
Often, it’s one of those processes that doesn’t even reveal quite how much work it will involve until you are deep into it.
We all know some of the first fun and exciting parts of the process- jumping online to search for properties that have just hit the market and attending open houses to inspect just how many less desirable features weren’t displayed in the online ads.
Do you really know, though, what your next move should be if you think you’ve found the home of your dreams or are looking to purchase an investment property?
Where should you start?
Should you make an early offer? Low or high? Are you better off rolling the dice at an auction? Should you engage a solicitor right away? Or are you best to visit multiple times first? What is the property really worth? Where should you look to buy?
When it comes to buying property, there are more questions to answer than you could even imagine at the start of your search, and house hunting can become a long and arduous process if you attempt to guess your way through it.
You will also find yourself becoming more heavily invested in each property that you go to the trouble of answering all these questions for as you pour your time (and money) into each one.
If you don’t want to wind up being the person who paid top-dollar for a knock-down at an auction simply because you got swept up in the emotion, there’s one smart move that can save you a lot of anguish: Find the best buyer’s agent.
