It can be stressful buying in an area you don’t already call home, so if you are thinking about buying in a new area then take the time think through whether an area is right for you.
Have you done your research?
If you’re planning to move to an area that you haven’t lived in before then it pays to do your research before you buy a property. Often there are good and bad parts of the same suburb, or certain streets that are more popular than others because they have more views or are quieter. Sometimes the only way to figure out the best areas is to ask the opinions of locals. You should also look at past property data so you can figure out different price brackets in an area and try to establish what’s in your price range. You may also like to do some research on the types of things that will affect your lifestyle, such as the local job market and/or schools.
Have you visited the area before?
Sometimes an area sounds good on paper but you get a totally different impression of it when you visit in person. Before you lock yourself into any kind of buying decision, spend some time in the area and get a sense of whether or not you like spending time there. If you are thinking about buying Bacchus Marsh but you haven’t spent much time here then drop into the Arbee Real Estate office and feel free to ask us what’s it like to live in the area.
Do you need assistance?
It can be hard managing the purchase of a property when you’re living on the other side of the state or the country. It may be worth employing the services of a buying agent to help take the stress out of buying your dream home.
