Buying Property with Harcourts

Finding your home

Your Harcourts real estate consultant will begin by showing you suitable properties, which are on the market right now. You will see photographs and detailed descriptions of all the properties we have listed which meet your requirements. When you see something you like, they will arrange a visit.

Your real estate consultant will also keep an eye out for suitable properties online, in the newspapers, new listings that come up – even, if necessary, approaching the owners of properties you like which are not currently on the market. 
Of course, working with a Harcourts real estate consultant does not mean you can only look at properties which are listed with Harcourts. Your consultant will be happy to deal with other real estate companies on your behalf.


Your Wish List

We often hear "but the agent didn't listen to me!" While this may be true of some agents, your Harcourts consultant is trained to listen – not to talk.

Knowing your requirements early really helps us help you. Sometimes however, your circumstances and priorities can change. Often, we will check with you to ensure we remain on track.

Facts that help us in finding you the right property include:

  • Suburb/s
  • Price range
  • Number of bedrooms
  • Style of home
  • Proximity to childcare/primary and secondary schools
  • Garden size
  • Drive on access and or garaging
  • Special requirements e.g. no stairs


Your Essentials
It is important that we know the absolute most important features you want in a property and will not compromise on. They may include:

  • A separate office / study
  • Sun aspect
  • Security
  • Garaging or mooring for a boat
  • Low maintenance grounds

 

 These requirements are unique to each buyer. Also give some thought to features you most definitely do not want in a property.
