Seller (Vendor) vs. Buyer


As buyer, you want to make sure to get what you are bargaining for. On the opposite as seller you want to get the best possible price. Both groups of people sometimes forget that a good deal must have two satisfied parties.


Losing or winning depends on the service providers, which you as client (seller or buyer) have engaged. During the property buying process you deal with financial institutions, lawyers, accountants, building inspectors, councils, trades people and with the buyer’s or seller’s agent. If you trust these people blindly and accept bad services, you might end up with a problem  (examples: properties with unpermitted work, leaky homes, defect homes or titles). Don’t be foolish by being focused on price only.

You would not expect in life that everything goes to plan. Selling or buying a property is not different. It may be incredibly exciting but can also be nerve-racking. Each deal has its specific and the due diligence (DD) is for figuring out whether the property is worth buying or not.




Buying or selling an apartment is even more specific as you deal with the unit title, a share of the apartment building, Body Corporate and professional services (Body Corporate management, Building Management). Here are some examples:
