The Beginners Guide to Auctions So you've found your dream home and you want to make it yours...

07 29 32




Newsletter May 2012


t appears that most markets around the country have reached the bottom of the property cycle, with reports to hand suggesting that pricing has stabilised in many locations across Australia. If prices are neither going up nor down, then where's it to from here? With further significant price falls unlikely, prices should start to ease upwards as buyers get on with meeting their requirements for the future.

Whether you're upsizing or downsizing or after a long-term investment strategy, it makes sense then that now is an ideal time to buy. Everyone is always looking for that perfect time to get into the market or find an affordable purchase with excellent growth potential, and right now could be that time you look back on and ask 'why didn't I buy then?' While property has its ups and downs, it's a solid long-term prospect so take advantage of the current pricing if you possibly can.

The good news for borrowers is that the figures for the March quarter Consumer Price Index make an interest rate cut more likely, which would be a welcome reprieve. The rise of 0.1 per cent for the March CPI, following no change in the previous quarter, was less than anyone expected.

With both economic growth and inflation slower than expected only a couple of months ago, the RBA has been backed into a corner and now seems a safe bet to cut the cash rate at the first opportunity. The RBA's board, which holds its next monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 1, now looks highly likely to cut the cash rate to 4.0 per cent, from the current 4.25 per cent. We may even be able to expect more than one cut.




THE BEGINNERS GUIDE TO AUCTIONS So you've found your dream home and you want to make it yours now! There's just one hurdle, it's up for auction. How do you prepare for this type of sale and how do you remain cool and calm on the day?


here ’s no denying it, for first home buyers especially, an auction can be exciting, stressful and maybe even a little terrifying if you don't know what to expect. The good news is that with the right planning and helpful guidance from a professional real estate agent such as One Agency, you can own your dream home and secure it at a price that matches your budget and it's true value. Before you bid on a property you need to make sure you have completed all of the essential research and preparation. This includes undertaking building inspections, securing your finance and reading the contract of sale, including the Vendor's Statement which includes information about rates, local government building restrictions and easements (if any). You may even want to ask your conveyancer or lawyer to check the fine print. Do some exploring in the area in which you wish to buy. You may want to check out median house price information or review the past sales results of properties in the vicinity to ensure you have a realistic purchase price in mind. An auction is usually held at the property itself. When you plan to bid at the auction you need to register your details when you arrive. Ensure you arrive early on the day so you can take one last look around the property. You'll also feel more relaxed and level headed if you have time to spare. Attending other auctions in the lead up to yours is also a great way to become accustomed to their pace and procedure. At the beginning of proceedings the auctioneer will describe the property and describe the contract. They will then begin taking bids. This is when the excitement really builds. Some buyers take along a friend or family member who bids for them if the task is a little daunting. As the auction unfolds don't be afraid to bid strongly and confidently, letting others know you mean business. If you are successful at the auction you'll be asked to sign the contracts and pay the deposit, so don't forget your cheque book! Once that's finalised, the only thing left to do is celebrate. You've jumped that last hurdle and bought yourself a home.
