Inspecting properties

We often hear “but the agent didn’t listen to me!” While this may be true of some agents, your Harcourts sales consultant is trained to listen – not to talk.

Inspecting properties

Your sales consultant will show you those properties that best fit your requirements. This will be at times to suit you and the owner of the property.

You will be kept informed of all changes relating to the properties you have viewed and you will be advised of new properties as they come on the market. Talk to your sales consultant about how you want to receive new property information i.e. via email, text or phone call.

Inspections of properties take time. We recommend you do not rush or disregard too quickly. Try not to judge a property from the outside only. Some properties have little or no street appeal, but have much to offer inside. An inspection will confirm your first impression or will pleasantly surprise you.

When you find a property that interests you, let your consultant know straight away. Even if you are not yet ready to make an offer your sales consultant will need to register your interest, especially where another consultant or agency is involved.

When the right property presents itself be prepared to make an offer. We will encourage you to do so as many people have found their perfect home and missed it because they didn’t take the opportunity when it was available to them.

Open For Inspections

Many sellers open their homes to group viewing during the marketing of their property. Open Home times will be advertised in the property advertisements.

It is normal practice for the consultant to meet you at the door to register your name and contact details. You will then be free to inspect the property at your leisure. The sales consultant will always be available to answer any questions and provide information on the property or area.

If you have a consultant working with you, ring them when you see an Open Home advertised and they can arrange an introduction or escort you through. After the Open Home the sales consultant will ask for your feedback on the property.
