What are Non-Negotiables?

By Rick Schafer

Before you turn to Google, sit down and write out your property deal-breakers.

  • In which suburbs would you most like to live?
  • Do you like the neighbouring suburbs?
  • Are local schools a consideration?
  • What’s the proximity to shops, sports, facilities, cafes, restaurants etc?
  • What are the dream features of your home?
  • Is a garden or balcony important?
  • How many bedrooms do you need?
  • Do you need a garage?

Once you’ve decided on the non-negotiables, it will be much easier to narrow down your search parameters, giving you a good list with which to start your hunt.
