What buyers want
Eighty per cent of Australians are coastal dwellers. We also like living in an area we know well.
Most of us are simple creatures who want an easy life by being close to work, schools, shops, gyms, parks and all the other facilities that we need and want to improve our lifestyle.
We might need reassurance that buying a new property is the right move. We also want to feel welcome and impressed when we visit an open home.
Our search for a new home can be done by browsing a website from home, work, commuting on public transport or simply when we have a moment between meetings and appointments.
Research reveals 85 per cent of property buyers search online and 55 per cent of inquiries to agents come from the Internet. Most of us also have a strict budget and can only stray within five per cent of this figure.
