Useful advice for home buyers and sellers

For anyone considering selling their property or investing in a new home, an informative property seminar which will provide useful, expert advice is being held from 5-7pm on Tuesday, 2 October 2012 at Maritzburg Golf Club.

For just a R10 donation per person - with proceeds going to the local Peter Pan School for handicapped children - a wealth of advice is being presented by Pam Golding Properties in association with Ooba mortgage originators, ER Brown Inc legal firm and Linda Payne Attorneys.
Topics will cover: Why the need for an estate agent by Barbara Becker, area principal for Pam Golding Properties in Pietermaritzburg and the KZN Midlands; The pitfalls of buying – hidden costs, by Chris Phillips of ER Browne Inc; Why use a bond originator by Linda Rall of Ooba; Selling a home and costs involved by Linda Payne of Linda Payne Attorneys; and Preparing home for sale home by Cathy Pretorius, agent for Pam Golding Properties.

Comments Becker: “This event will equip anyone who is selling or buying a home, with firsthand, relevant advice from specialists in the field related to the various aspects that are involved in a property transaction, including obtaining finance and the legal considerations and obligations. It’s a fact that today the process requires professional agents who are trained and qualified and also knowledgeable about the legalities of the transaction process, and relevant legislation, including the National Credit Act and the Consumer Protection Act.  Each sale is never exactly the same as another, and there are many different dynamics and needs, as well as obstacles that can occur during the negotiation, and also with the transfer process.”
