8 Steps to Buying Property

5. Deciding on Your Offer

Deciding the price and conditions of your offer is a critical step that requires careful thought. Make an informed decision by researching how much the property last sold for and when, plus recent sale prices of comparable properties in the area (using a service such as Corelogic RP Data, for example). Getting an independent valuation by a professional valuer should also be considered (please note, real estate agents are not registered valuers). Keep in mind that sellers may consider conditions (or lack of) as well as price.
