A good mortgage broker who is easily contactable is essential.

Have a property valuer close at hand, to quickly help you to understand what the property is worth and what may be considered over paying. This can help you avoid a short valuation from the bank- which would mean having to come up with extra funds if the purchase is at your $ limit.
Next is good solicitor who can review the contract quickly and get amendments agreed to- and will be available after hours to help get your deal done.
If you’ve never read through a building inspection report before it would also be wise to have someone who can interpret that for you, such as a builder or handyman.
