Find, Appraise and Purchase Property

The Find, Appraise and Purchase option is our complete buyers' agent service.

Ideal option for those who are time poor, unfamiliar with the North Shore area, or those wanting someone else do all the hard work for them. 

I Rate Real Estate does all the work for you - from shortlisting, right through to settlement. This option makes the process of finding and securing a property an enjoyable experience.

The steps in the Full Find, Appraise and Purchase property include:

Step 1 – Free Initial Consultation

We provide a free no-obligation initial consultation to discuss your needs and expectations.   Contact Us   to arrange a free consultation.

Step 2 Property Wishlist

We work with you to prepare a Property Wishlist from which to shortlist suitable properties. I Rate Real Estate’s unique "I Rate System" makes this easier to help you focus on what’s most important to you.

Step 3 – Research and Analysis

We research available properties on the market meeting your Property Wishlist. We evaluate your specific “must haves” and “must have nots” to use as a basis to locate properties that fit your criteria and that you can afford.

During this step, our research will include viewing properties on the market, liaising with Real Estate Agents regarding ‘silent’ and up-coming listings, as well as a full analysis of the current market trends, recent and previous sales history and activities in the local search area.

Step 4 – Shortlisting

For each property viewed, we use our unique and simple to follow "I Rate System" to shortlist suitable properties. 

As well as providing the details of properties viewed, we provide a market appraisal, and a summary or “rating” of between 1 and 3 for each of the properties against the following 3 categories:

  1. Criteria Rating –listed individually based upon how closely the property viewed matches your stated search criteria;

  2. I Rate Real Estate Viewing Rating – independent opinion based upon the inspection, condition, overall appearance, location, etc

  3. Value for money rating – opinion of how the expected selling price of the property compares with other similar properties on the market and/or recent sales in the area as well as potential return on rental investment (if relevant).

It’s simple…The higher the score the more suitable to property is to your needs and expectations.

Once you have identified the property/s you wish to view, I Rate Real Estate will arrange private viewings for you, so that you have the time to view the property without having to compete with other viewers or the pressure of the “Open House” time.

Step 5 – Negotiating and securing your new home

Based on the budget you have set, we negotiate directly with the Selling Agent, or attends the Auction, and bids for you on your behalf. This ensures that you get the best property for the best price.

I Rate Real Estate make finding the right property, a whole lot easier.
