HOW TO MAKE AN OFFER When you are ready to make an offer, tell the real estate agent, and give the relevant details, ie: your “price”, “deposit amount” and the date when you would like to take possession/settlement. Also add in any special conditions you require your offer to be subject to, including building and pest inspections, finance approval etc. The real estate agent will then draft up the contract, explain it’s contents to you, and provide instructions as to how to correctly sign and initial the respective pages. They will allow you to have your solicitor / conveyancer proof the contract before you sign it and present it back to the agent. The agent may even commence negotiations based on your verbal offer. Depending on the circumstances the vendor will: • Accept the offer. If they accept the offer you have a contract based on the terms agree to. • Reject the offer. If they reject the offer without coming back to you then you have the option of resubmitting another offer. (Beware of offers which are too low and offend an owner, the emotions involved may prevent them wanting to work with someone they feel is trying to “steal” their home). • Countersign your offer. They may countersign your offer. In which case you have the same three options (accept, reject, countersign). Contract Signed & Dated: As soon as the contract has been signed and dated by both parties, the real estate agent (or their company) will date the Contract (“Contract Date”) and forward the originals of the contract to the vendor’s and purchaser’s solicitors. The agent will also ensure that the vendor and purchaser are provided with a signed and dated copy for their records. Cooling Off Period: This is a 5 business day period which starts when the property is Under Contract, where the purchaser can terminate the property for any reason, but will need to pay a termination penalty equal to 0.25% of the purchase price. The Contract does not become unconditional until all stated conditions have been satisfied (eg: building & pest inspection, finance approval, sale of existing property etc).  This can take from 7-14 days or longer, depending on the conditions and what timeframes have been agreed to between both parties. Insurance: Please note, the property will pass to your risk from 5pm on the next business day, after the contract date. This means that you must get insurance on the property. Valuation/Finance: Don’t be alarmed if your bank or lending institution requests a valuation by a registered property valuer. This is normal practice in all states of Australia especially if you’re borrowing more than 80% of the purchase price of the property. The Valuation Inspection will be arranged by your bank/lending institution within 14 days of the dated contract. Professional inspections: Depending on the property, there are a range of inspections to consider, including building reports, pest inspections, and pool inspections. Make sure the people doing the inspections are licensed and carry adequate insurance cover. Building & Pest Inspections: In many cases you should be able to receive verbal feedback immediately after the inspection has been completed. A written report should follow and may include the estimated cost of any major repairs, and advice on preventing future problems. The building inspector should report on the following: • the structural integrity of all buildings • water damage, including outside penetration & potential internal leaks • ventilation, skylights, air conditioning, insulation • the general condition of paintwork & plaster • the condition of the tiles on the floors & in bathrooms • the condition of the roof, guttering and downpipes • condition of surrounding concrete driveways & paths, fencing, retaining walls, paving • electrical – including safety issues • pool & pool fencing • all evidence of past & current pest activity that may pose a threat to the property, such as termites (white –ants) & borers. Some inspectors have access to the latest technology & have the ability to check behind walls, using thermal imaging cameras. Len Worthington - RE/MAX Northern M | 0402 297 355 E |

This guide will share the little things that help attract buyers to your home, assisting you to sell faster and at a better price. With the key tips in this guide, and a little effort, you can make your home stand out for your buyer!

The prospect of selling your home before you have established where you are going to move to may seem daunting at first. But the truth is a huge number of home hunters find the property they want within a relatively short time. So don’t be afraid to sell first – then buy. This means you will have your financial arrangements already taken care of and you have the freedom to make an offer knowing you are in a strong position to negotiate on price and time.

An effective way of enhancing your home for visual impact in the market is to walk around your home, inside and out and be critical of what you see. It’s a good idea to have an impartial person with you for an honest opinion. Your aim should be to ‘present’ your home in such a way that it looks its absolute best. Consider the best features of your home and most importantly put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. If you notice any objectionable features then you can be sure that the buyer will too.

Remember the 4 R’s

“Repair, Revamp & Reap the Rewards” Ask me for a free copy!

There are two major financial considerations to buying before selling. If you make an offer on a property before your house is even on the market, the seller of the property you want is less likely to be willing to negotiate on the price or the terms. Selling your house as a condition of contract to buy another usually means you have very limited time in which to complete a sale for your existing property. This means you can be under pressure to accept a low market offer.

Ask me for a free copy!

WANT $500? If you refer my services to local relatives, friends & neighbours about to list their home for sale, I will pay you $500 if their property sells with me! I WILL PAY $500 EACH FOR MULTIPLE PROPERTY REFERRALS. ONE REFERRAL PAID PER PROPERTY.

Rest assured, I will look after each referral with discretion & professionalism for their best result! Len Worthington - RE/MAX Northern M | 0402 297 355 E |
