Deciding to sell your property is the first step of a long and sometimes stressful journey and for many of us it’s something we don’t do very often. At Conveyancing.com.au, we help people sell property every day, and we’re here for you too.
When you imagine selling a house, it’s easy to think about chatting to a real estate agent, popping a ‘for sale’ sign out the front and waiting for the right buyer. Well, once a buyer comes along there’s actually a lot of work that goes into making the sale official and legal. The conveyancing process can take anywhere from six weeks to a few months to complete. A lot happens during that time so it’s important to be prepared.
Our team at Conveyancing.com.au has worked hard to make the conveyancing process as simple and easy as possible. We’ve put together a Property Calendar to help you prepare for your selling journey.
