Checklist: Buying a New Property


Spring is almost upon us, and that means the weather is warming up, Queenslanders are kicking off the Ugg Boots, packing up the doonas and donning the thongs & shorts and heading outside once more. 

It also means many Queenslanders are looking to make the big move into the property market and purchase a new home or investment property.  A quick search on the real estate websites reveals there is currently over 10 000 properties for sale in the Greater Brisbane region alone, 3500 in Logan City and a little over 2500 in Redland City. As we head into the weekend there is a good chance, there will be more than a few Queenslanders putting pen to paper this weekend in a bid to get their very own slice of paradise.
