Finding Your Home

Finding your home

Your Harcourts real estate consultant will begin by showing you suitable properties, which are on the market right now. You will see photographs and detailed descriptions of all the properties we have listed which meet your requirements.

When you see something you like, they will arrange a visit. 

Your real estate consultant will be keeping an eye out for suitable properties online, in the newspapers, new listings that come up – even, if necessary, approaching the owners of properties you like which are not currently on the market. 

Of course, working with a Harcourts real estate consultant does not mean you can only look at properties which are listed with Harcourts. Your personal consultant will be happy to deal with other real estate companies on your behalf.

Your Wish List

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

Knowing your requirements early really helps us help you. Sometimes however, your circumstances and priorities can change. Often, we will check with you to ensure we remain on track.

Facts that help us in finding you the right property include:

  • Suburb/s 
  • Price range
  • Number of bedrooms
  • Style of home
  • Proximity to childcare/primary and secondary schools
  • Garden size
  • Drive on access and or garaging
  • Special requirements e.g. no stairs

Searching for Properties

Many buyers search the internet prior to viewing properties.
You can use the Property Search function to the left of this page for a comprehensive search facility which will provide you with property details and multiple photos of each property. 

Loan Calculator

A loan calculator enables you to easily determine fortnightly or monthly repayments by entering the amount you wish to borrow, your deposit, preferred interest rate and term of the loan. Please click here to use the Mortgage Express payment calculator.

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 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 consultant will ask for your feedback on the property.
