There’s three things to consider when searching for a property and this is what we do as buyer advocates.
Firstly, there’s Price. This one is pretty self explanatory. It’s the budget you are willing to allocate to purchase your home.
Secondly, there’s the Property. The physical characteristics you require in a home. The number of bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas, floorplan, condition and quality of the building, the style or construction.
Lastly, the Position (location, suburb, precinct). Things to take into account here are streetscape, amenities, transport, commerce, security and demographics.
Most people will need to compromise on at least one of these three criteria. Our job as a buyers advocate is to understand your situation and future goals enough to educate you on the correct compromises, because neglecting one of the P’s too much could leave you stranded in that property forever.
