Hervey Bay Real Estate Agents

Hervey Bay is a perfect place to live.  Imagine residing in one of the nicest holiday destinations in Queensland.  Its safe waters attract nursing whales, which is why it’s one of the best places to see whales.  It’s also why it’s often called the Whale Watch Capital of the World.

Hervey Bay provides easy passage to World Heritage listed Fraser Island and the Great Barrier Reef.  Those safe waters also make it an aquatic heaven for year round diving, swimming, diving, sailing, fishing, boating, snorkeling, wind sailing, jet skiing, yachting, and kayaking.  Sophisticated cafes, parks, shops, playgrounds, picnic areas, piers and a lively marina with a botanical garden line the esplanade.  To make it all complete, the subtropical climate remains pleasant every single day.  No wonder it’s also known as the Jewel in the Queensland Crown

Real Estate

The real estate agents in Hervey Bay is stable and remains untouched by the usual factors that trouble most markets in Australia. Such is due to Hervey Bay’s ongoing transformation. While most regions in the country deal with a lot of first-time homebuyers, Hervey Bay sees a lot of cash carrying retirees looking for a warmer weather and a better way of life.  But, a lot of young people are also moving in, as well.

New estates are regularly being built in response to demand, yet older homes don’t remain on sale for very long.  There are plenty of apartments, offering magnificent views, available for sale, too.

When you decide to purchase or sell a home or property, you have to work with a real estate agent. From the start, you should make sure that the real estate agent with whom you work is licensed.  Ask to see their license.  Don’t ever be hesitant or embarrassed to do so.  A reputable agent won’t ever hesitate to comply.

Research the agent carefully and find one who adheres to a professional code of conduct.  You definitely don’t want to retain an agent who has a past history of making vague and/or dishonest statements and/or one who has been involved in any scams.  Your relationship with them must be formal and you must retain them in writing using approved forms.  Until you appoint the real estate agent to work on your behalf (in other words, until you execute the appropriate forms), the real estate agent cannot legally act on your behalf.

Selecting a Home

Buying a home is exciting!  Very exciting!  It’s a new life!  A new lifestyle!  And, in Hervey Bay, it’s going to be great!  But, you must be very cautious, even when that house seems absolutely perfect.  Especially when that house seems absolutely perfect.  A house is a huge financial investment.  One of the biggest a person makes in their lifetime.  Make priorities and consider your needs.  Do you have children?  What kind of work do you do?  Do you need to be near public transportation?  Do you need to be in a good school district?  Do you need room for pets?  Do you need to be close to stores?   How many bedrooms do you want?  Figure out what you can live with and what you can’t live without.

Signing the Contract

Real estate agents typically take care of the negotiations and fill out the contracts. Residential contracts contain warning statements suggesting buyers seek legal counsel before signing.  If the buyer chooses not to obtain legal advice, they are advised to see a valuer, financial agent, and building and pest inspector in order to avoid any potential misunderstandings.

Move In

All that’s left now, is to move in and have a great time swimming, diving, sailing, and walking along the esplanade, past all the cafes, shops, stores, and watching whales, and simply having a great time in the Jewel of the Queensland’s Crown.
