Buying Tips

Woodards can help you think about the right steps to take before you buy.

What's my budget ?
Before you start looking, work out how much you can afford to spend. Talk to several mortgage providers to determine your borrowing capacity. This is an essential first step in successful buying.

Have I done my homework ?
Decide on an area you like and find out all you can about the area. Watch sales results in the papers and on the internet. Get to know the streets you like. This knowledge can help you make the right buying decision.

What do I need ?
Think about your lifestyle and how many rooms you need. Who else will be living in the house? What are their requirements? Answering these questions can help narrow down your search.

Have I checked with my legal advisor/conveyancer ?
Before you bid at auction or make an offer at private sale, has your legal advisor checked the vendor's statement for you? You should make sure all other legal documents are reviewed and understood before you sign.
