problems with dwelling purchase

Filed under: real-estate — arandomperson @ 9:12 am

Well after all going apparently smoothly for the 2 months of the settlement period, all at the last moment, within the space of about 10 days, it has all turned into a complete shambles. More news – and further details – when I feel up to describing them – after it breaks, we’ll know at crunch time this time next week how it all ends up playing out. Suffice to say aspects of the paperwork were incomplete, and we have only been recently notified of this by the conveyancer.

dwelling purchased

Filed under: real-estate — arandomperson @ 5:42 pm

Well last Wednesday night we took a punt at an auction, and got a place. So now quiet living out in the ‘burbs beckons.

Wierd about the auction was that after discussing all sorts of auction and bidding strategies, we ended up being the only bidder, bidded up to the reserve and got the property straight off. After observing a few auctions we have noticed they can be real hit and miss in terms of bidder interest.

Interest rates up and the share market rocky at the moment makes it a wierd time to buy but we have have the resources to push it through, and we havent overextended, going for a cosy unit rather than a palace.

Now its over to the conveyancer and mortgage provider..

Excellent source of information from a series of related web sites by the Real Estate Lawyer Peter Mericka. Some good advice on the stumbling blocks on dealing with the Real Estate industry from the legal side.
Also a good example of well done web promotion.. starting with excellent, relevant content, and a series of topically named mutually reinforcing web sites feeding traffic to each other.
