As with any big purchase, there's no substitute for doing research when it comes to buying a home.
Figures from research commissioned by Slater and Gordon Conveyancing Works show that the internet is increasingly becoming a source of information for homebuyers throughout the nation.
More than half (58.5 per cent) of those polled said they intended to use websites to kick-start their house hunting, with women found to be more likely to do this than men.
With access to the internet easier than ever, it's hardly surprising that this is proving the most convenient means of finding out more about property in Morayfield.
Lawyer at Slater and Gordon Conveyancing Works Robert Kern explained that people are quite literally finding the information they need right at their fingertips.
"Real estate websites are becoming increasingly sophisticated, allowing people to highly define what they're looking for in terms of price, location and amenities, it means they don't have to sift through lots of unwanted stuff to find exactly what they want," said Mr Kern.
Once you've got a better idea of the sort of property you're after, it's well worth speaking to a real estate agent to see exactly what's available.
Their insight into the market is invaluable and could be just what you need to help make the right decision.
