PORT MELBOURNE Port Melbourne is located about 5km south-west of the Melbourne CBD and covers approximately 10km2. The formerly industrial and working-class area has been subject to urban renewal over the past two decades. The mix of housing types is distinct with a clear divide between medium and high rise blocks of apartments in some areas and period-style homes in others. There are also a number of newer architecturally designed properties throughout the suburb. Port Melbourne is popular with young professionals, families, empty nesters and retirees for many reasons: • Friendly community • Easy access to the city • Frequent tram and bus services • Big open parklands, sandy beaches and bike tracks • Great range of good coffee shops, restaurants and boutiques • Reputation of local schools • Close to all major arterials, making it convenient to the greater metropolitan area and beyond • Close to the waterfront and Station Pier, the destination for some of the world’s most luxurious cruise ships

PURCHASING STEPS 5 Steps to buying a house Purchasing residential real estate can be a very exciting process. However it can also be a confusing process for the prospective buyer. You may already be aware, different agencies usually have different sets of rules and standards, so we would like to inform you of the buying process through our company. Property owners receive all types of interest – some genuine, some not. Some people submit offers to test the possibility of a sale but do not actually stay true with their offer. This can lead to frustration and concern for the owners as they try and assess who is actually a genuine buyer. Whilst the majority of our properties run through to auction, some vendors may consider an offer prior. In these circumstances, you should follow the steps outlined below. This will enable you to put forward your strongest purchasing proposition to the agent which in turn will give you the very best opportunity to secure the property. Please note that we take the selling process very seriously and any offers communicated by letter, fax or email are considered nothing more than indications of interest. All offers must be signed up on a Contract of Sale prepared by the vendor’s legal representative and accompanied with a deposit for 10% of the purchase price.
Step 1 – PROVIDE AGENT WITH YOUR FULL DETAILS: If you decide to make an offer, we will ask you to confirm the following details before arranging a meeting with the vendor: • Actual purchase price you will pay for the property • Payment method for the required 10% deposit • Settlement period you require or that the vendor has stipulated • Name of your chosen solicitor or conveyancer • Name of your bank or financial lending institution • Any special conditions or requests you may have so that we can inform the vendor.
Step 2 – CONFIRM THE TIME FRAME AVAILABLE TO CARRY OUT ANY INVESTIGATIONS Find out if the property has a deadline on it, such as auction or other offers from interested parties.
Step 3 – DECIDE IF YOU ARE GOING TO OBTAIN PEST & BUILDING INSPECTION Before you purchase any property, you may feel the need to arrange a Pest and Building Report from a qualified inspector.
Please note that this report is a complete list of defects of the property, and it is very different from the feature brochure that you receive from our agency. Most people are shocked with the report they receive on the property, and most times misinterpret the report. The point to remember here is that all properties at one time or another require maintenance, and this is known as a capital improvement.
Step 4 – NOTIFY YOUR LENDING INSTITUTION OF YOUR PURCHASE ADDRESS & DETAILS A pre-approval of finance from your bank or lending institution needs to be in place before safely proceeding with your property purchase, however many banks will approve you in principle (pre-approval) yet may require a valuation. This is normal practice of lending institutions, and serves as confirmation of the agreed sale price. With an auction property, it is highly unlikely that an offer ‘subject to finance’ will be considered as the standard marketing campaign is quite short and the vendor cannot be expected to halt their advertising and open for inspections whilst waiting for the offer to become unconditional. If you are intending to buy at public auction, all the abovementioned must be in place. Auction day is final. If you turn up and bid and you are the highest bidder past the reserve, on-the-market price, you are the instant owner awaiting settlement of the property. There is no cooling-off period three business days either side of the advertised auction date.
Step 5 – MEET WITH THE AGENT AND PROVIDE ALL DETAILS FOR SIGN OFF WITH THE OWNER Once agreement on price, settlement, conditions, etc has been reached and the vendor has signed the Contracts of Sale, the agent will make arrangements to provide you with one of these signed contracts. Only when an exchange of contracts has been completed can the sale proceed and the property is removed from the market.
Summary Preparation is the key. Understand the steps of sale and have everything in place is imperative to reaching your property goals. Whether you are considering purchasing this property or another in the near future and require advice, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
