Harcourts are here to help you find the best property to suit your needs. Take advantage of an open home to find out more about the neighbourhood and use the time to perform a thorough property inspection.
Later on, you may want to engage the services of a professional to inspect the building’s structure and for pests, but it’s a good idea to use your initial tour of the home to perform your own inspection.
Ask as many questions as you can and take your time to do research about the location. Consultants know the areas they work in very well, and can also give you advice on what the neighbourhood is like, if there are new infrastructure projects planned, and how prices have changed over the last few years.
Meet the neighbours, walk around the local streets and drive around the area to check whether there is suitable access to places of interest, community facilities and retail services.
