Back to basics – tips for buying and selling real estate

By Peter Gow

Deciding whether to sell your existing home before buying a new one or buying now and selling later can depend on your individual circumstances, financial situation, and the current state of the real estate market.

Here are some tips and tricks to look out for if you are thinking of buying or selling:

Do your research

Before buying or selling any property, research the market thoroughly. Look at recent sales data, median prices, and current trends in the local property market.

Understand the selling process

If you plan to sell your property, understand the selling process and what fees and costs are involved. Your real estate agent will help you with the process.

Set a realistic budget

Determine your budget before you start looking for a new property. It is important to be realistic about what you can afford and avoid overstretching yourself financially.

Consider the location

Look for properties in areas that have good infrastructure, public transport, and access to amenities like schools, shops, and hospitals.


Secure pre-approval from your lender before you start your property search. This can help you determine your budget and give you an advantage when making an offer.

Be patient

The real estate market can be competitive, and it may take time to find the right property or to sell your existing home. Be patient and take your time to make informed decisions.

Consider a buyer’s agent

A buyer’s agent can help you find the right property at the right price, negotiate with sellers, and guide you through the buying process.

Market cycles

The real estate market can be cyclical, with periods of growth and decline. Be aware of these cycles and how they can affect property values and sales.
