  1. Speak with your financier or your Finance Consultant to arrange the best loan to suit your needs
  2. Prepare a short list of preferred suburbs that suit your lifestyle, bearing in mind affordability and accommodation requirements
  3. Research sales in those preferred suburbs. Inspect properties in your preferred city or suburb so you have a feel for the prices. Attend open homes in the area
  4. Develop a relationship with one of our professional team who specialise in your preferred area. Your Brian O'Halloran & Co Sales Consultant will be able to advise you of any additional information you may need and also inform you how you can register on our website to automatically receive notification of any new listings that hit the market
  5. When you find a property that suits your requirements, ask your agent for a copy of the Vendor's Statement (s.32 Statement)
  6. If you are considering making an offer, we recommend that you contact your Brian O'Halloran & Co Sales Consultant promptly who can guide you if you are in any way unsure of the process
  7. Prior to forwarding an offer arrange a building inspection to make sure you are aware of any possible major defects
  8. Following your solicitors or conveyancer's advice on the Vendor's Statement and Sale Contract and taking into consideration the building reports, you are now able to make an informed decision to proceed with the negotiation of the property
  9. Once negotiations have been finalised, you will be required to sign the sale contract and pay a deposit. Your deposit will be held in a trust account until settlement. At settlement, contracts will then be unconditionally exchanged
  10. Prior to settlement day it is advisable that you do a final inspection before settlement takes place. This is to ensure that the property is in the same condition as when you last inspected it and that all inclusions are as per the contract you signed
  11. Make sure all utilities are connected to the property before moving in
  12. Enjoy the property that you now own!
