Before you start looking for property, it is a good idea to compile a list of what features and local infrastructure – compulsory and bonus – you require in a property and its suburb. For example, if you are starting a family, you may require a certain number of bedrooms; off-street car parking and a local school close by, whereas a swimming pool for the children may be a bonus.
Things to consider:
How many bedrooms does the property have?
Is it close to public transport, schools, shopping centres etc.
What are the council rates on the property?
What type of property are you looking for – a unit, townhouse, apartment, existing house, vacant land, or new home?
Rate the features you need in your life and compare with other properties and suburbs.
