The following checklist should be applied by every person selling a property prior to signing a contract:
- When do I need to speak to my bank about releasing my mortgage? – the answer to this question is always at the earliest opportunity.
- Who should I use as a real estate agent? – generally we encourage clients to look at who has the majority of the listings of the properties in their particular area. In Cairns certain agents seem to have a very strong presence in certain suburbs and we often encourage clients to work with the experiences.
- When should I move my possessions out of my house? – generally the answer to this question is a few days before settlement.
