Speak to your Financier or Broker to arrange the best loan to suit you

Register as a Buyer

Ask one of our Sales Consultants to register you as a Preferred Buyer, once you’re registered you will be notified of any new listings that become available, before they are advertised – Register As A Priority Buyer Now! Click Here!

Obtain a copy of the Sales Contract

When you find a property that fits the bill ask the Sales Consultant for a copy of the Sales Contract and Offer Form

Submit Your Offer in Writing

South Australian legislation requires all offers to be submitted in writing

Get Legal Advice

We believe it’s important to get legal advice from a professional either prior to signing the contract or during the ‘cooling off’ period

Know Your Rights

In South Australia once your contract has been accepted and signed, and the ‘cooling off’ form (Form 1) submitted you have 2 clear business days to check your paperwork
