Residential Property in Australia

Australia is a beautiful country, full of dramatic scenery and gorgeous vistas. It's no wonder we love it here: the vibrancy and the variety that our country offers cannot be competed with by any other country. When you are thinking about where you want to live, you should also consider what kind of property you wish to buy or rent. After all, there are quite a few, and there are very different from each other. Your type of residential property will reflect your lifestyle, so think carefully.

The more typical properties include those like houses - particularly townhouses - apartments, and villas. Many people that live within cities are preferring flats or units nowadays, but that does not mean that the humble house has lost its fans. If you are looking for a property like these, then you are in luck: there are plenty to go around, and many of them are absolutely gorgeous.

On the other hand, you may be looking for something a little more specific. For example, you may be downsizing, and looking for retirement homes that are more like little communities. You may decide that instead of living in a block of flats, semi-detached houses have more appeal. These properties are wonderful to real make a home in, and they are incredibly popular.

And last, but by no means least, you have the residential property that is a little bit different. Perhaps you are looking for a property with acreage which is more semi-rural. You could even buy some land, and build your own perfect home yourself! These types of residential property are excellent for those that are free-spirited, and are looking for an adventure – and a challenge!

Whatever kind of residential property you are looking for in Australia, we can help you to find it, and make it your own.


Three things to look for when buying a residential property

Buying a piece of residential property – whether it is your very first home, or the fourth one – is a ridiculously exciting experience. There is so much to look forward to when buying a residential property, and many people struggle to stay calm, and remember all of the important things to look out for when they are going round a house! Apart from the obvious ones, like fixtures and fittings, the local neighbourhood, and transport links, we think that there are three things that you should really keep an eye out for when looking around a property:

1. How is the garden maintained?
The state of a garden or yard is often a brilliant reflection on the rest of the entire property. If the previous residences have kept the outdoors space in good condition, then the chances are that there is going to be little wrong with the interior. This isn't just about curb appeal; this is about the state of your potential next home.

2. Have you got a survey done?
Even if the garden is pristine, there could still be problems with the roofing, or with the electrics. You should never seriously consider purchasing a property unless you have had every single inch of it checked over. After all, you don't want any nasty surprises the first day that you move in.

3. Are you sad when you leave the property?
Although your head should deal with the majority of the decision making when buying a residential property, you still need to let your heart have a say. If you don't feel sad when you leave the property, then you are probably not as emotionally invested as you should be. You know when you have found the right property when even after your viewing is up, you can't bear to leave.


Hints and tips on renting a residential property

Although renting a residential property may not technically be as big a commitment as buying one, it is still a huge change in circumstances. Moving takes time, effort, and money – as does moving over all of your bills, and contacting everyone you know about your change of address. That is why it is incredibly important that you think very seriously about any property that you consider renting. To help you out, we have put together our three most important hints and tips for renting a residential property:

1. Look at at least three properties.
Yes, the first one that you go to may be lovely, but without anything to compare it to, how do you really know? This is a common mistake that new renters make, and they often find out later – after signing on the dotted line – that there was a nicer place at a cheaper rate two streets over. Do your research, and physically go to at least three properties so you can gain some perspective.

2. Find out how your deposit will be protected.
Your potential landlord should be very clear about what will happen to your deposit – and how it will be protected. Not declaring this, or making a statement and then changing their mind, could be counted as fraud. Know your rights, and make sure that you know exactly how your deposit will be protected.

3. Check your responsibilities.
Sometimes you can find deep within the small print that there are certain responsibilities that come with a residential property that you were not aware of. For example, it may be up to you, the tenant, to mow the grass, or to keep snow from your driveway. If you do not find out about these extra rules, you could find yourself becoming very unpopular, and you may not want to take on those responsibilities.
