Step 2 Selecting An Estate Agent
When choosing an estate agent, consider their working hours, when they will be available to conduct viewings, their presence and what kind of marketing your property will receive. These are critical to obtaining the maximum exposure and price for your property.
Step 3 Instructing A Solicitor
The successful sale of your property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. It is a good idea to do some research and make a decision before you put your property on the market as this will help to avoid delays.
The Wollongong Legal Property Law Team including its highly skilled licensed conveyancers, paralegals and administrative staff are committed to providing affordable conveyancing services efficiently.
Step 4 Presenting Your Property
First impressions count, making the presentation of your property critical to a successful sale.
Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to declutter to make rooms appear larger.

Step 6 Accompanied Viewings
Our longer working hours are essential to maximise viewing opportunities for your property – in fact 45% of our viewings are carried out after work and at weekends. Accompanied viewings also mean we can use our expertise to help sell your property.
Our office is always open by appointment. In addition, our phone lines are open seven days a week.
Step 7 Receiving An Offer
As soon as an offer is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing.
Any special conditions of the offer will also be stated in writing and we will check the buyer’s ability to proceed before you decide whether to accept the offer.
Step 8 Offer Agreed
Once you accept an offer we will do the following:
- Prepare a Sales Advice
- Write to all parties to confirm the agreed price & conditions
Your Solicitor will send out a Contract to the buyer’s Solicitor who will then carry out preliminary enquiries. We will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way. There are no legal obligations until Contracts are signed.
Step 9 Exchange Of Contracts
Exchange of Contracts occurs when the following have been confirmed and agreed:
- Preliminary enquiries following receipt of Contract
- Evidence of a good title
- Specific issues highlighted in the Lease, if applicable
- Local search queries
- Fixtures and fittings to be included in the sale
- The buyer’s mortgage offer
Once the Contract has been signed by both parties and the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) has been paid into the Agent’s trust bank account. The settlement date is then set by mutual agreement.
Step 10 Settlement / Completion
Settlement is when the residual monies are transferred from the buyer to you.
Your solicitor will call you when the money has cleared in your account and will inform us to release the keys.
Congratulations, your property is now sold!
