Buy­ing for the first time

Tablelands Advertiser - - REAL ESTATE -

HAV­ING the right ad­vice from a per­son with ex­pe­ri­ence can make all the dif­fer­ence when pur­chas­ing your first home.

Joe Tor­risi Real Es­tate sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive So­phie Bozzo has been in the in­dus­try for eight years and loves help­ing clients to se­cure their dream homes.

She said the com­bi­na­tion of low in­ter­est rates and the State Gov­ern­ment’s $20,000 first home­own­ers grant meant there had never been a bet­ter time to se­cure a first home.

“Mak­ing the de­ci­sion to pur­chase a prop­erty is an ex­cit­ing time and the process doesn’t have to be daunt­ing,” she said.

“If you have a plan, pur­chas­ing a prop­erty can be an en­joy­able process.”

So­phie prides her­self on ex­ceed­ing clients’ ex­pec­ta­tions, which makes ev­ery sale a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence

“I en­joy meet­ing new peo­ple and match­ing clients to prop­er­ties,” she said.

“Guid­ing clients through the pur­chas­ing process – es­pe­cially when they are just en­ter­ing the mar­ket – is im­por­tant be­cause they must feel com­fort­able and be able to en­joy the ex­cite­ment of buy­ing their home.”

So­phie’s tips can help steer you in the right di­rec­tion if you’re con­sid­er­ing buy­ing for the first time:
