Online House Shopping? Tips for Finding Your Dream Home Online

In this day and age, almost everything’s accessible online – yes, even your dream home! To make your online house hunting journey smooth and easy, we’ve put together some tips for finding your dream house for sale online.

Narrow down the search by location or property type

Choosing your ideal location for your dream home will help narrow down the search so you’ll get only the most relevant results. As much as possible, try including even the suburb location in your search term. For example, “house for sale in Australia” would give you a list of homes available in the entire country whereas “house for sale in Sydney” or “house for sale in The Ponds” would give you a more targeted result.

You may also include the type of home you want to purchase. For instance: “ranch style house for sale in Marsden Park,” “duplex home in Schofields,” or “double storey home in The Ponds.” Aside from these, you may also want to search for custom home builders in the area. That way, your choices are not limited and you can actually achieve the look of your dream home.

Not sure about the location? Search for reviews

Of course, the environment of your neighbourhood will impact your decision. The good thing is, reviews for suburbs in Australia are easily accessible online. Just make sure that the site is trustworthy. For more information on nearby establishments, businesses and schools, you can explore the trusty Google Maps to tour you around the area.

Take a virtual tour

Since physical site visits have been limited since the pandemic started, developers are using technology to provide a better experience for house hunters. They now offer virtual home tours where home buyers may view a home from all angles and as many times as they need, giving them an almost true-to-life site visit experience.

Found something you like? Double-check the builder’s credibility

You’ve pinned down the location and you’ve managed to find a house for sale or a custom home builder that you really like. Now it’s time to check the builder’s credibility. Are there reviews posted on their site? How many homes have they sold? How many projects have been completed? Make sure to only engage with developers or builders with a track record of delivering high-quality homes on time. This assures the safety of your investment. Aside from those, you may also want to look at prices of homes they’ve sold so far. This will give you an idea of how much your dream home might cost.

Send an enquiry before sealing the deal

Like everything you’re seeing so far? Don’t get too attached yet. Start the conversation and the home buying or building process by sending an enquiry to the builder. In your first touchpoint with the builder, you’ll also be able to evaluate if they’re trustworthy or are able to give you the best customer experience.
