THE GUIDE TO BUYING A HOME
Step 5 Ė Search for your Dream Home
Once you know what you want to buy, you can begin your search for your home. Most people selling their homes will advertise on the internet and in the newspaper, so this is usually the best place to start.
This is the most convenient way of finding your property. There are several websites that carry details of properties for sale where you can type in your requirements and your price range and search for properties online. You can also sign up for email alerts, so when a property that matches your criteria is advertised it will notify you by email immediately, so you can act quickly.
The major and local newspapers contain listings of properties for sale and auction. Find out which papers have the detailed property section and which days they appear in the paper.
Real estate agents
Many Real Estate Agents display their properties for sale in their office. So itís a good idea to make contact with the Agents in your desired suburb, and let them know what you are looking to buy and ask if they have any properties that match your requirements. Even if they donít have any, ask them to let you know when a property comes onto the market that matches your criteria.
