It’s always a good practice to inspect the properties you have short listed. Have a first look and then if it ticks all the columns in your check list, go for a second inspection. In the second inspection, you will notice more than what you will have seen the first.
Building InspectionTake the advise of your solicitors and ensure to have your property’s building inspection or let you solicitor check out the strata report in case of strata titles. This will provide you peace of mind.
If you you liked the property and carried out all due diligent checks in consultation with your solicitor, the next step is to negotiate and make your offer. At Move Realty we take the offer on the contract with a deposit. There are two types of offers:
The purchase under auction conditions are always unconditional.
What is Section 66W?
A section 66w certificate is a certificate signed by the purchaser’s solicitor in accordance with section 66w of the Conveyancing Act 1919 which allows you as the buyer to waive your statutory right to a cooling off period.
If your offer is acceptedYour offer is accepted once all parties have agreed to the terms, including price and deposit, and the contract agreement has been signed by all parties.
If the agreement is conditional with cooling off, conditions need to be satisfied by the due date. It is the buyers responsibility to satisfy those conditions. Once the cooling Off period is over, the offer becomes ‘unconditional’.
Pre-Settlement inspectionMake sure that you inspect the property with the real estate agent two days prior to the settlement. Ensure that the property is in the same condition as at the purchase time and is clean and ready for you to take possession. If you have any concerns, speak to your real estate agent as well as your solicitor immediately. Your solicitor will be able to help you easily prior to settlement.
Settlement day is the date on which you pay the seller the balance of the purchase price less the deposit for the property. Usually the solicitors and bank representatives carry out the process. Once the settlement process is completed, the solicitor instructs in writing to the real estate agent that it is settled and the agent is authorized to account the deposit money to the seller and release the keys to the purchaser. This is called the ‘Order on the Agent’. If there is a chain of settlements you may not get access to the property as early as you would like on the day of settlement. We can only release the keys to you once the legal settlement has occurred and the sellers solicitor notifies us.
Congratulations! You’ve purchased the property.

It is necessary to know how to participate in an auction, the conditions of auction sale and it’s requirements.
What is an auction?
An auction is a process of buying and selling goods or services by offering them up for bid, taking bids, and then selling the item to the highest bidder. The open ascending price auction is arguably the most common form of auction in use today. auction is a method of selling a property through the process of public negotiations.
Paying actual market price
Move Realty guarantee our customers that our auctioneers conduct Auction in accordance with certain conditions which are set out in the Property, Stock and Business Agents Regulation 2003. We have the well qualified and most experienced Auctioneers conducting the auctions.
Buying property at an auction
An auction is a gathering of potential buyers who publicly bid for a property. It is usually conducted by an estate agent, acting as an auctioneer and governed by strict rules. Buying property at auction is very different to other property purchases. The bidding process is public and if the hammer falls and you are the highest bidder, you have to sign the contract right there and then. This means you must be sure you are bidding on a property that you can buy.
Become informed on key things to know before you start bidding.
Understand the following auctions terminology:
How does an auction work?
To participate or bid at an auction, potential buyers must register with the vendor’s agent and be given a bidder’s number. The auctioneer oversees the bidding process. They take bids from potential buyers and keep track of the current bid price. Before auctioning a property, the seller will nominate a reserve price, which is usually not advertised. If the bidding continues beyond the reserve price, the property is sold at the fall of the hammer. If you are the successful bidder, you must sign the contract of sale and pay the deposit on the spot (usually around 10 per cent of the purchase price).
Difference between an auction and private sale?
Auctions differ from private sales as there is no cooling-off period:
If you are bidding at an auction, you must be ready to exchange contracts and complete the sale. Otherwise, you will lose your deposit and may be liable for any damages suffered by the vendor.
What happens on the day of auction?
On the day of the auction, the property may be open for inspection, usually half an hour before the auction starts. Use this opportunity to take a final look at the property, the contract and auction rules.
Agents must give all potential bidders a copy of the Bidder’s guide before the auction. The Bidder’s guide contains important information you need to know, such as how you register to bid and what kind of identification you must provide to register. It is important to know how to register as you cannot bid if you are not registered. Agents are also required by law to have a list of the following auction conditions clearly visible for all potential bidders:
Attend a few auctions as a spectator to become familiar with the auction process. If the price is getting too high, you need to be able to walk away. This may be one of your biggest decisions, so it is worth making the right one, and being as well prepared and informed as possible about buying property.
Sometimes the vendor agrees to consider pre-auction offers, which you can make through an agent before the auction. The negotiation process is the same as buying by private sale.
