Houses for Sale in Wooloowin – a stone’s throw from Brisbane CBD
Named after an indigenous word for ‘pigeon’, the Wooloowin area is well-served by public transport, and offers excellent links to the city – whichever mode of transport you prefer.
With the beautiful Kalinga Park as the green heart of this area, it is a real delight for commuters and young families looking to escape the big city – but not be too far away.
The streets are lined with beautiful, old homes – and some eye-catching modern ones too! With a great selection of public and private schools in the area, it is a wonderful place to bring up children – you are never too far away from a park.
Kalinga Park is a heritage-listed site; with swathes of green to be enjoyed by cyclists, joggers, dog walkers and children – climbing equipment, Aussie tree houses and swings, picnic benches and BBQs – it is all here, and it is beautiful.
How to make an offer on a property in Wooloowin
So, you’ve been to one of our open home events, you’ve found your perfect property – what do you do next?
Before you make your offer, you must have pre-approved finance in place. Make sure you have approached your lender before you commit to an offer – once that offer is accepted, you need to be prepared for settlement and it can cost you dearly to terminate.
Decide on your absolute upper limit that you can afford. A good solicitor or conveyancing clerk can help you to decide on what you should offer initially.
In Queensland, any offer must be made in writing and in the form of a contract. The offer usually stipulates a price, and some clauses – such as building and pest inspections and should be drawn up with your solicitor.
Once the vendor has received your offer, one of three outcomes can be expected.
Once the vendor has accepted the offer, the contract is binding, and you are now in the process of purchasing. Other things that might happen is that your lender might now ask for an independent valuation, and you will arrange a building/pest inspection to be carried out.
If the vendor rejects your offer, it is wise to approach the agent to find out why they did not counteroffer – was there an accepted offer from someone else, has the situation changed? You can, of course, resubmit if you like, but getting some feedback will help you decide on how to approach this.
The vendor may come back to you with different terms, a different price or a combination of both. This is where it is important to be sure of your financial budget – because sometimes $5,000 can make all the difference to getting a contract.
Once you have had your offer accepted, then the settlement date is agreed – at this point, you will be expected to begin paying your mortgage as the initial deposit and the balance will need to be paid on this date.
Don’t forget to allow extra money for surveys, legal fees and other expenses that you may incur during this process.
