Finding Your Home

Ways to tell if you have found the perfect home.

Finding your home

Your Harcourts Cornerstone 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. Please feel free to use the Property Search feature on the left of your screen to search for any current listings by Harcourts.

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 just 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 non-negotiable 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.



 

 

Searching for properties

Many buyers search the internet prior to viewing properties.

You can use the Property Search function to the left of this page for a comprehensive search facility which will provide you with property details and multiple photos of each property that we currently have listed for sale within Harcourts Cornerstone.  

Inspecting properties

Your consultant will show you those properties that best fit your requirements.  This will be at times to suit you and the owner of the property. You will be kept informed of all changes relating to the properties you have viewed and you will be advised of new properties as they come on the market. Talk to your consultant about how you want to receive new property information i.e. via email, text or phone call.  Email is the best option as we will be able to send you pictures and details of new properties as they are listed.

Inspections of properties take time.  We recommend you do not rush or disregard too quickly.  Try not to judge a property from the outside only.  Some properties have little or no street appeal, but have much to offer inside.  An inspection will confirm your first impression or will pleasantly surprise you.

When the right property presents itself be prepared to make an offer. We will encourage you to do so as many people have found their perfect home and missed it because they didn’t take the opportunity when it as available to them.  Your real estate consultant will be able to guide you and hold your hand step-by-step through this exciting process.
