This morning I received an email from my brother in law Jack. He’d been talking to my partner about our recent decision to purchase our new home and didn’t want me to miss a beat when it came to the sale. My partner mentioned needing to find a good property conveyancing team in Melbourne but to be honest, everything was going in one ear and out the other. He’d had to fly to the states to pull off a work contract right in the middle of the sale and he’d clearly called in the extra hands where he imagined they’d help.
“Grace, Jase has told me how stressed out you (both) are about the sale. I know you’ve been really frazzled by the idea of leaving, and I know it’s only going to get busier for you in the next few weeks, so I just wanted to help where I can.
Jase told me you’re at the stage of needing property conveyancing. Melbourne agents move fast, and I know someone that can really help. It’s like having a translator! But I also wanted to break down a few things about the whole process as well so you can make ends of it before you reach out.
So here it is.
Bless him, this email went on in great detail to explain the key steps of selling including the section 32 statement. It was probably one of the most helpful things anyone has done for me over email. Jack had sold his home only a few months earlier, just last year and we were lucky to learn off the back of his experience. Skyping Jase later in the afternoon, I realised how much he’d been affected by being away when I saw the relief in his face, after I told him that I’d been able to make contact with a conveyancer and had an appointment tomorrow.
I feel much more secure knowing I can ask all these crazy questions about our sale tomorrow. Suddenly, things don’t seem so overwhelming and challenging any more.
