The Ultimate Real Estate Checklist
Updated: May 20, 2022
The Ultimate Real Estate Checklist for all real estate investors, first home buyers, and owner occupiers.
Are you looking at buying a house and need guidance on what it should include? We've created our very own checklist for a range of people who are in the market or are in the process of buying property.
This checklist will cover off the big ticket items that you should consider from location, building inclusions/ features, all the way through to additional factors that'll make your new property desirable.
Location, Location, Location
Location, location, location. It's a tune we cannot get out of our heads. If you've been following us for a while now, you know which one we're talking about.
Location, however, is a factor that's so important to consider when buying a house. If you're buying real estate, your property should be located within proximity to life's conveniences. This is important when you're buying an investment property, because your property needs to appeal to tenants.
Below is your location checklist. You may want to consider whether your property is close to:
Major arterial networks and connecting roads
Schools/ childcare/ tertiary education precincts
Parks/ sporting grounds/ recreation precincts
Building Inclusions and Features
This checklist is just as important as your location checklist. When buying a house you want to ensure that the actual internal and external features of the property are going to serve you or your tenants effectively. A home is meant to provide residents with convenience, shelter, and safety.
REIF only work with builders who offer full turn key house and land packages. This means that the property will come included with all essentials.
Below is your building inclusions and features checklist. Does your property include?:
Plumbing and drainage
Gas, cooking, heating
Bathroom and laundry
Additional toilet/ bath
Built in wardrobes
Here are some additional features that you may want to consider for your rental or owner-occupied property:
How is the home in different seasons?
What is the neighbourhood like?
Are there any restrictions in the area?
