How long does it take to find and buy a house?

Is it possible to speed up the house hunting process?  

If you’re house-hunting for a new home, the whole process can seem like a long, never-ending experience. And it’s true – finding and buying a home is rarely a quick process.

So, how long does it take to find and buy a house?

For many Victorians, it can be six to 12 months from the initial research stage to actually moving into their dream home. The process includes: 

  • Researching suitable places online and in magazines
  • Seeking loan approvals
  • Visiting multiple Open Homes
  • Finding the perfect house
  • Placing an offer
  • Signing and exchanging contracts
  • Picking up the keys

And yes, due to the multiple steps and various factors involved, it’s common to experience delays along the way.

Is there a quicker way to find and buy a house?

Why, yes there is! By significantly cutting down the research stage.
