Tips for buying this spring

By Louise Morrin

Spring is always a busy season for the Carlton property market. Buyers are out in droves, sellers are putting up for sale signs and agents are getting marketing campaigns together.

As it's a popular season for buying, you'll need to make sure you're well organised before you start house hunting. Here are some tips to help you on your journey.

Get pre-approved

If you see a mortgage broker and get your home loan pre-approved, you can enter the market with confidence. Not only will you know how much you can spend, but sellers might take you more seriously when you're negotiating, too. This is even more important if you're a first home buyer, as pre-approval shows that you're serious about buying. 

Work with real estate agents in Carlton

Having a hard time finding the right house? To make it easier, get in touch with a local agent and tell them exactly what you're looking for. Factors like budget, size, number of bedrooms and amenities can help agents narrow down a list of properties that could be a great match for you. They can also keep you in mind, should any further listings come through to them.
