Aside from understanding why the seller is selling the property and how long it has been on the market, you will also want to know a few more aspects about the property and seller.
When is the seller planning to move out? It is important from a planning perspective to know when the seller plans to move out. Usually the new buyer only takes occupation of the property once the transfer has been registered.
What are some of the aspects of the house that he/she should know about that they may not be able to see? It is very important that the buyer do a thorough check of the property to check for any defects. Be sure to also ask the agent and seller to point out any defects or other aspects that you need to be aware of.
Understand the neighbourhood in which you are buying. If you are new to the area, it is especially important that you take some time to familiarise yourself with the area and ensure that it meets your lifestyle needs.
