When purchasing a home it is important to have your finances worked out before you start looking at property. This enables you to look at properties in the range you can afford.

Research is very important, look at what area you would like to live in. The internet is an excellent tool for initial enquiries. 40% of buyers now purchase off the web. It’s a great idea to have an outline of your personal requirements when looking for property. Have a drive around your preferred area. Look around and see what the area offers in the way of transport, schools, work, etc. You will find most properties that are on the market will have a for sale sign on them.

Visit your local Lang Realty office and discuss what you are looking for with them. They will listen to your requirements and will search their extensive database to match a property to your needs.

An inspection inside the property will provide you with an excellent perception of what the property offers. Don’t always judge a book by its cover. Make an appointment and look inside. The renovation market is booming and everything can be altered to suit your own personal tastes.
