Should I Buy or Sell First?

Each situation is unique, and several factors need to be looked at to determine which option is right for you. Here are some things to consider with each.

Buy First

Works best when:

  • There is a lot of competition in the market and property prices are rising
  • You’re confident there will be a high level of demand for your existing property
  • You can negotiate or make it conditional on selling your own home
  • You’re prepared to accept an offer that lets you move on or pay bridging finance.

Sell First

Works best when:

  • If you want greater certainty about how much you have to spend on your next home
  • If you’re moving locations and buying in a different and slower market
  • If you can negotiate a long settlement or know that you’ll be able to find something that suits your requirements.
