General Timeline of Purchasing Your Property In Australia

Getting FIRB Approval

Foreign Investment Review Board approves you to buy the property you want.

Find a property

You search for a property according to your investment targets through some popular channels such as real estate agents or real estate websites in Australia.

Review Contract

You send the real estate purchase contract to a lawyer for advice on the favorable and unfavorable terms/ conditions in the contract.

Offer & Acceptance

After you and the homeowner agree on the price and contract terms, both parties sign the contract and you pay a deposit to the real estate broker.

In addition, related taxes for foreigners are also emphasized so that customers have enough information when owning a house in Australia.
