When to buy? When to sell? How to co-ordinate your move and how to balance finance!

Timing is important and you will need the assistance of an experienced real estate agent to help you through the alternatives.

Activity in any real estate market can be affected by many different external factors. Under some conditions a sale in summer is suggested because many buyers are active then. However there can also be a great deal of stock for sale.

During winter the market is less active and this could be an opportunity to buy or sell when stock volumes are lower. There are no hard and fast rules. It is Ray White Highfields | Toowoomba Ranges experience that every sale requires personal attention.

One of the simplest ways of helping you identify which property to buy is to prepare a Property Wishlist  with the features you are looking for. Divide your list into those items that you must have, those you would like and those you would consider an extra bonus.

Keep a House Hunting Checklist Wish List for each property you inspect so that you have an easy comparison. Also keep any brochures or advertisements used to market the property so that you can refresh your memory. It is also a good idea to visit any property which interests you at several different times of the day.
