Cairns property view November 2018

Who said it’s hard to get into the real estate market? Not exactly Cairns property but close by, a two-bedroom cottage near Etty Bay on the Cassowary Coast has sold for the price of a new ute. At $50,000, 32 Mill St in Mourilyan is arguably the best property bargain in the Far North this month.

The Cairns property market is still seen as flat at the moment, we are seeing a few news articles that try to encourage us all is not lost. Houses are still being bought and sold as we speak, just no record-breaking deals.

Having said that, there is a smart way to achieve a very healthy sales price for your property even if it is a flat market. So don’t despair as the right agent can make sure you aren’t missing out on achieving the best result.


Cairns property conveyancing

Conveyancing – how it works

Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership of a legal title of land (property) from one person, or entity, to another. A conveyancer is a licensed professional who specialises in giving advice and information about a property transfer.

As it is complex legal work, it’s recommended that you hire a professional to conduct your conveyancing. A conveyancer oversees the settlement process.

You can fill out all the forms yourself and you could save on fees, but ensuring all the i’s are dotted and t’s crossed is no easy task. If something goes wrong, you run the risk of forfeiting your hefty deposit.

It’s widely recommended you enlist the expertise of a conveyancer to oversee the legal transfer of your property. Should they make a mistake, you’ll be covered by their professional indemnity insurance.

Conveyancers don’t necessarily have to be solicitors but they often undertake this work.

It’s recommended that you engage a conveyancer whenever you are:

  • buying or selling a property
  • subdividing land
  • updating a title (i.e. registering a death)
  • registering, changing or removing an easement
