Tips for Buying Property in the Christchurch Real Estate Market

  1.  The home is more important than the price, provided you can comfortably afford it, of course.
  2.  Take the time to find a salesperson who understands and respects your individual needs.
  3.  Take your partner and cheque book with you!
  4.  The right time to buy is when you find the right home.
  5.  If you get fed up, don't quit. Take a break for a couple of weeks.
  6.  Seek professional help if appropriate - e.g. a building inspector.
  7.  There will always be little things to do - will you enjoy doing them?
  8.  See your bank or a mortgage broker to establish what you can afford to invest.
  9.  Remember one of the main 'feel good' reasons for buying a home is that it just feels good.
