Prepare a wish list
Make a list of the features you most desire in a property, including your ‘must have’ features such as number of bedrooms, en-suites and garage as well as the ‘nice to have’ features, such as large garden, swimming pool etc. Also consider factors such as purpose (home, investment or business premises), location, lot size, close to schools, shops, recreational facilities etc.
We also suggest that you take a moment to think about the lifestyle you are hoping to achieve through the new purchase. Imagining your new property and the changes it may bring to your life, this will help clarify what is ‘essential’ and what is ‘a nice to have’ attributes.
