If you are looking to purchase a property, then you need to be prepared and do your research.

Research requires effort.

Opening the weekend newspaper or scrolling through online listings and picking a property based on the advert, price or agent, could be costly.

So, put on your detective hat, get out your magnifying glass and look at the evidence. Sales evidence, land valuations, listing history, house design and location are all important when considering the value of a home.

Once you have done your research and decide to make an offer on a property, don’t be rushed and be sure to give yourself protection when completing the offer (a legally binding contract).shutterstock 139143014
