Many home buyers are rushing in before doing their homework - a new study revealed

9D ago 0 Replies 243 Views
Due diligence when buying real estate is simply the process of properly evaluating a property before buying – a straightforward, yet serious step that many first home buyers are choosing to skip.

Buyers are being asked to expect the unexpected after a new study has shown that an alarming number of purchasers aren’t doing their house hunting homework.
Whether it’s risk of a natural disaster, or the more likely event of building defects, a new GlobalX survey found that nearly half of Australia’s homebuyers are failing to do complete due diligence when buying a property.

The top 10 To-Do items :
A top 10 hit list of topics buyers should discuss with their conveyancer or legal representative are:
1. Building inspections

Downsized homes with easy access to amenities and transport is the way of the future

Looking back to the year 2000 and the theme of the Great Australian dream was “the bigger, the better”. But two decades on, and Aussies have come to the collective conclusion that good things can come in small packages. Property developers, real estate experts and social demographers agree that downsizing is the way of the future for house hunters down under. Stockland recently released its 2020 property survey which showed that more than 60 per cent of respondents would forgo a traditional large backyard for a smaller home with less outdoor space, if it meant they felt more connected to neighbours and close to parks and community green spaces. “With 24/7 technological connectivity and busy lives, people are increasingly looking for low-maintenance homes located within communities that offer great amenity, social connectivity and physical closeness with their neighbours and wider community,” said Stephanie Vanin, general manager of residential sales at Stockland.

Smaller, simpler, and streamlined ‘sanctuaries’ are the homes we will all soon be clamouring for, as these housing ‘megatrends’ reshape everything.

What is Comprehensive Credit Reporting (CCR) and how it can impact you

f you’re into property, you probably realise that we’re in an environment of historic low interest rates. Maybe you’re reading this saying “Gee I wish I could get those low rates!” Because the reality is that even though interest rates are low, many investors can’t get them. Why is that? Well that’s because the banks and other lenders are using comprehensive credit reporting or CCR as an excuse to raise interest rates on a case by case basis and chances are you won’t know you’ve been impacted until you go for your next loan. What is Comprehensive Credit Reporting? It used to be the case that your credit file only recorded when you were really naughty, like not paying your creditors or if you shopped around a lot for credit. Why did this happen? Well about 18 months ago credit reporting changed and comprehensive credit reporting was enforced. Well the idea was it would give lenders a more realistic picture of what a potential borrower looked like. What it means for you is now whether you like it or not many bills you pay on a regular basis are being recorded on your credit file. So, your home loan, credit card, car loans, store cards and the like are being tracked in relation to your repayment history. And while they aren’t being recorded just yet, pretty soon power bills and phone bills will be tracked as well. Read more:x How comprehensive credit reporting allows the bank...
