Master Property: How to Buy Off The Plan

2nd November 2018

We talk to first home buyers, industry experts and successful investors for their top tips when buying off the plan.

Buying a property off the plan means the latest finishes and technology, it means more time to save for a deposit, it means getting a floorplan that is perfect for you and your family – no renovation needed. But choosing who to buy from is not simple. It requires research.

In episode two of The Mirvac Masterclass, we interview successful first home buyers, investors, industry experts and Tanya Buchanan, Editor of property style bible Belle magazine, for their top tips on how to buy off the plan.

They are unanimous when they say find a property partner who controls the entire process – design, construction and marketing. That way you have the one point of contact for everything. Choose a developer with a reputation for quality, so that the design stands the test of time. Property is a long-term strategy. Excellent design that holds its value is so important. Make sure whoever you partner with has a long track record of quality design, with proven growth on investment. Also, choose a property developer who has a dedicated, customer service team, so that when you move in, they are there to help, so there are no horror stories.

As Tanya says in her interview, buying off the plan can seem daunting, but if you partner with a developer with a reputation for quality and customer service, then it is a great way to enter the market. Watch the full episode below.
