Hi all I'm new to both property chat and the property world. I have read some very interesting threads and was hoping for some guidance. I'm looking to purchase in QLD, specifically around the logan region site unseen. I have come across a few properties that I wouldn't mind. I did want to place an offer on a property, however, my MB has requested I not submit a formal proposal until i run it by him. Don't know if that is the norm? I have asked a real estate agent if i could put through an informal offer and his sent a form to complete. Should i already have a solicitor on hand? Also, what special considerations does one put on the contract?
