Dreaming of a sea change in beautiful Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, or a tree change in Maitland or the idyllic Hunter Valley?

While the region offers stunning scenery, a thriving lifestyle and a booming property market, there’s a hidden danger lurking for out-of-town buyers: buying sight unseen.

This might seem like a quick and convenient way to snag your dream property, but trust me, it’s a recipe for disaster! Here’s why:

Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

  • Those Pictures Don’t Tell the Whole Story: Photos can be deceiving. A strategically angled shot can hide high voltage power lines, noisey neighbours, or a less-than-desirable streetscape. Even a video from the sales agent doesn’t always present the true picture. 
  • Knowing the Vibe: Every suburb has its own personality. What looks perfect on paper might not suit your lifestyle. Imagine buying a family home in an area full of retirees or downsizers. Or realising that the “quiet” street is actually a short cut for daily commuters. 
  • Hidden Secrets: There are always unknown issues with the property that don’t show up even in a pest and build report. Things like big trees, storm water issues or even questionable neighbours. Do you want to take that risk? 

Blind Bidding and Bidding Wars

  • Emotional Decisions, Expensive Consequences: Buying remotely can lead to impulsive decisions based on photos and descriptions, pushing you to overpay in a bidding war on property. A sales agent’s job is to sell you the property and they may not have your best interests at heart. A Buyer’s Agent differs from this, in that we only want to get you the RIGHT property.
  • Missing Out on Market Insights: As expert local buyer’s agents we have our finger on the pulse of the market, know the agent tactics while giving you an edge in negotiations and saving you money.
