Home Buyer Checklist

Our Checklist

Buying a home in Melbourne or on the Mornington Peninsula can be a stressful time, but Buy-Wise Inspection Services wants to make it easier by giving you a convenient checklist. Our list tells you what to do while looking for a home, then details our suggestions for what to do once you’ve signed a Contact of Sale.

After You Sign

Once you sign the Contract of Sale, contact your conveyancer about it. Then, get your pre-purchase building and timber pest inspections to ensure the building is safe and bug-free. Next, arrange for payment, insurance and utilities. One week before the settlement, get the pre-settlement inspection done.

Getting Started

First, save up for a deposit. Meet with a financer and figure out Stamp Duty by researching your property market to decide the budget. Next, find a conveyancer and ask for Section 32’s. Lastly, determine your settlement schedule and Contract of Sale. If going to auction, get a pre-purchase inspection.
