Tips on how to be a savvy home buyer

TIP 1.

Setting up ‘Saved Searches and Alerts’ on means you’ll receive automatic updates to your inbox when properties that meet your set criteria are listed.

TIP 2.

Saving properties of interest in ‘My Properties’ means you can easily refer back to them later.

TIP 3.

When planning your weekend of viewings, add open home times directly to your smartphone’s calendar via the app. This way you won’t miss out on any viewings, or double-book yourself. You can also use Google Maps to find the shortest distance between all your open home locations.
