We are professional property finders specialising just in the Southern Highlands, so we are experts on the area. We know all the properties and selling agents, and we keep records of all the houses in the area, including what they were selling for a month ago!

If you base your searching on an internet search or talking to selling agents, every house sounds wonderful! You will be spending a lot of time travelling here looking at unsuitable properties. Take out the guesswork and have Highlands Arrivals provide a shortlist of properties. We want to make sure you love your house in the Highlands! Many properties, particularly Bowral and Mittagong, sell before they are listed on the internet sites. These are off-market sales and you need to act quickly to get one of these, using someone local as property finder, inspecting the property for you.

We can manage your whole search as your buyers agent, for a % of the purchase or for a set fee. Alternatively, we can help with individual tasks such as visiting and reporting on all potential properties, preparing a suitable property list to match your exact needs, advising on towns, locations and activities, bidding at auction, or helping with post purchase work or rental management with your property.

Our Services

We can work with you the whole way through the purchase of your home, including:

  • Finding the right properties

    We run through a detailed analysis on what you are looking for in the Southern Highlands, to understand your exact needs. We then talk to all of the local agents, and determine a list of potential properties which we will discuss with you and then inspect.

  • Property inspections

    This is inspecting the properties on your behalf, checking on your key requirements such as north facing, room to study, heating etc and taking photographs of all rooms and the street itself. This includes the rooms the selling agents don't want you to see! 

  • Liaising with the agent

    Understand the seller's motivations and urgency, any known defects with the house, schedule appointments and inspections and coordinate all aspects of inspecting and purchasing a house.
     
  • Providing detailed reports on the suitability of the properties of interest to you

    Detailed property report including an overview of the area and street, the details on the house including when it went on the market and the price it has been listed for previously, and other similar properties sold in the area.

  • Talking to council about zoning and development plans

    In rural areas, it's important to chck the zoning and any plans there may be in the future for the area.

  • Advising on pricing and market value

    Looking at past purchases, the state of the market, how long a property has been on the market and whether they have dropped or increased their price, and determining negotiation points, we work out how much the property is actually worth. This usually saves you lots of money! 

  • Negotiating the Purchase

    Negotiating for a house you are emotionally invested in can be extremely stressful, so it helps to have an experienced buyers agent acting on your behalf. In housing negotiations there are tactics the selling agents use to increase the price - don't be taken in by these! Work through the process with someone who is acting in your best interest and understands the game.

  • Organising buildng and pest inspections

    In a rural area these can be very important, and it's good to get someone trustworthy to do this. You also don't want to delay the sale too long in trying to organise one!

  • Dealing with the conveyancers

    So that an exchange isn't delayed, we communicate with the conveyancers and ensure all of the paperwork is in place and the sale isn't delayed. This includes ensuring important checks such as the chemical residue register is checked.

  • Performing the final inspections before settlement

    To save you visiting just before the settlement Highlands Arrivals can perform these inspections for you, checking the house is in the state it was when purchased, is clean, and all possessions removed.

  • Connecting you with great sporting clubs, school, playgroups and clubs

    One of the most difficult things about moving is finding your new support and friendship base. We can help you get in contact with the things you are interested in, so you meet lots of the friendly locals and quickly settle in.

What is a buyers agent?

A buyers agent, also known as a property finder, acts exclusively on behalf of the buyer in finding, assessing and negotiating the price of a property. This is different to selling real estate agents who are looking after the best interests of the vendor.

People use a buyers agent to find a suitable property, and to purchase it for the best possible price with the best possible terms.

The buyers agent will investigate the viable properties and identify any concerns or issues with them for the buyer.

In NSW to act as a Buyer’s Agent you are required to hold a limited or conditional Real Estate Agent licence noting that you may only act as a buyer's agent. This means a buyers agent can not also be selling property.

Buyers agents also have access to off-market properties which have not yet been formally advertised, so using a buyers agent is a way of accessing the properties that never make it to the internet sites.
