It is a buyer’s mar­ket and as such, the role of the real es­tate agent in achiev­ing a pleas­ing sale for your prop­erty is para­mount.

Don’t choose an agent who prom­ises the top sell­ing price; check their track record and make sure they are backed by a rep­utable agency with a large net­work and elite mar­ket­ing strategy.

If you are a buyer, fo­cus on lo­ca­tion, lo­ca­tion, lo­ca­tion.

Now is a great time to buy a well-lo­cated prop­erty in Perth for a com­pet­i­tive price.

Prop­er­ties in a prime lo­ca­tion will achieve stronger cap­i­tal growth over the long term.

A prop­erty does not have to be in an ex­pen­sive sub­urb to be in a prime lo­ca­tion.

For ex­am­ple, if you are buy­ing a house in a new res­i­den­tial area, the prop­erty could be lo­cated over­look­ing a park or lake, which will make it more ap­peal­ing to future buy­ers com­pared to other prop­er­ties in the es­tate.
