Property for Expats in Sydney

Many expats consider purchasing a property prior to or after moving to Sydney. The property prices in Sydney are very high as well as the demand for quality accommodation. In order to quickly secure a suitable property for your needs, it’s best to engage in the services of specialised real estate agent saving your time, money and hassle.

Key property tips you should know as an expat in Sydney

  • Depending on your residential and visa status, you may need to apply to the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) to get approval to buy a property in Sydney. 
  • Many properties in Sydney are “off-market”. The owners, for various reasons, such as maintaining privacy, do not advertise the proposed sale of the property, this is why a professional real estate agent will help you to access bigger selection of properties.
  • It’s important to know that you’re required to pay stamp duty on top of the price of the property. Stamp duty is a percentage of the property purchase price.
  • Many expats decide to engage in services of a buyer’s agent who will take care of the entire buying process, including the inspections and meetings, negotiations and the other finer details, representing your best interests.
  • As an expat on a temporary visa in Sydney, you are eligible to purchase a property as long as it is not an investment. The only stipulation is that you’re required to sell the property as soon as you leave the country.
