Follow these tips if you want to be a successful buyer in the spring selling season

first_imgHaesley Cush offers tips on how to be a winner during spring selling season.Get pre-approved finance. In the industry if your finance is pre-approved and your offer is not ‘subject to finance’ we call that a ‘cash contract’ and Aussies always take less for cash!Pre-register as a bidder for any auction you have an interest on. Spring is renowned for properties selling prior to auction and buyers missing out. If you are pre-approved you have secured your seat at the negotiating table and agents should inform you if an offer is going to stop the auction.Negotiate terms. If you can’t pay a 10 per cent deposit or settle in 30 days, then tell your agent the deposit and settlement you need. In most cases owners are flexible.Put in offers. The only risk you run putting in an offer is the risk it gets accepted. So if you like it, make an offer and insist it goes on a full contract.Lastly, bid at auctions. If you want to buy a property at auction you need to bid. Waiting for it to go ‘on the market’ can be costly. Many owners will consider lowering their reserve if bidding falls short of their expectation. But without a bid to lower it too, they have little option but to pass it in. Tips for winning in the spring selling season.SPRING does see an upswing in sales.But if you really look at why, it has little to do with the romantic notion that the new life of spring infects buyers and they unwittingly pay through the nose for any available property.Key activities fuel this surge in sales.The best place to start is the end – Christmas. Buyers generally want to be in and settled before Christmas. This means a purchase no later than November. That psychological deadline sees a rise in sales. That rise in sales has historically given owners confidence in the seasonal spring market, which prompts them to list their home for sale, so hence you see an uplift in properties listed.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:18Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:18 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Cricket News Yuzvendra Chahal shatters records in Melbourne ODI, puts India on course for series win

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights New Delhi: Yuzvendra Chahal was one of the changes in the third and deciding ODI against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Replacing Kuldeep Yadav who had an off day in Adelaide, Chahal was deemed to be a difference maker on the sluggish MCG wicket. Bhuvneshwar Kumar got the wickets of Aaron Finch and Alex Carey cheaply but Shaun Marsh and Usman Khawaja had steadied the ship with a solid 73-run stand for the third wicket. With Marsh looking good for a fifty, Kohli turned to Chahal and the Haryana legspinner delivered by striking at crucial intervals. Chahal got a legbreak to spin back in as Marsh looked to work the ball to the leg side but he missed and MS Dhoni effected a quick stumping to break the stand.Immediately, Chahal accounted for Usman Khawaja as the left-hander got a leading edge to a delivery that straightened and he could only pop a catch back to the bowler. With Australia losing their clutch players, India went for the kill. Marcus Stoinis edged a sharp legbreak that pitched on leg stump and it took a great catch from Rohit Sharma at slip. After his first spell which yielded 6-0-31-3, Chahal came back for his second spell to wrap up the tail in style.The young legspinner got Jhye Richardson (16) as the batsman edged a flighted delivery to mid wicket where Kedar Jadhav took the catch. He got his five-wicket haul when he trapped Peter Handscomb, who scored his third fifty in front with a quicker delivery. The formalites were complete when Adam Zampa miscued the lofted shot to be caught at long on by Vijay Shankar. Chahal finished with a haul of 10-0-42-6 which was his best figures. It was his second five-wicket haul, having taken 5/22 against South Africa in Centurion. His haul of 6/42 was the best-ever by a spinner in Australia and it was the second five-wicket haul by a spinner in ODIs in Australia, after Ravi Shastri had taken 5/15 in Perth in 1991. Chahal’s haul of 6/42 is the joint-best by a bowler in ODIs in Australia, equalling Ajit Agarkar’s mark which he achieved in 2004 and bettering the record set by Mitchell Starc who took 6/43 at the MCG in 2015. In addition to all the mentioned records, Chahal’s haul is the best-ever by a spinner at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.The young legspinner’s haul has given Virat Kohli’s side a great chance to secure their first-ever bilateral ODI series win.
