About Us

Our History

The doors of Raine & Horne, Australia’s iconic property firm was first opened by real estate pioneers, Tom Raine and Joseph Horne in 1883.

What sets Raine & Horne apart from other real estate companies is the iron-clad set of business practices that have been maintained to the present day – the unwavering commitment to providing personalised service and meeting a client’s property needs across leasing, sales, property management and consulting services for all types of property.

Raine & Horne initially operated from Wentworth Court, Elizabeth Street in Sydney. By the 1970’s, the Raine & Horne network stretched across Sydney, through the drive and enthusiasm of the company patriarch, Max Raine.

More opportunities unfolded as the Raine & Horne Board decided that the company would become the second property group to pursue a franchising business model. This proved a major turning point for Raine & Horne. The company opened its first franchised office, Raine & Horne Liverpool NSW, 1976.

Backed by a long-standing history of service and performance, Raine & Horne has secured a respected position within the Australian property industry. Surviving world wars, busts, booms and depressions, the company consistently achieves high-quality outcomes. Today, Raine & Horne has offices in  VIC, WA, TAS, NT, QLD and ACT and has expanded globally.

Raine & Horne Business Brokers Victoria is the sole office in the group selling businesses in Victoria.

Property Buying

Making an Offer

As a buyer, making an offer can be challenging. You can give your highest offer upfront or give the smallest you can offer and prepare for upward negotiations from there. You have to be open about the pros and cons of each side.

Contract of Sale

A contract of sale is needed before a seller is allowed to put a property on the market. This contract contains the terms and conditions of the sale. This will serve as your reference.

Contract Exchange

A contract of exchange is drawn when your offer has been accepted by the seller or if you were able to purchase the property from an auction. This contract of exchange is prepared by a conveyancer, a solicitor or a settlement agent.

The Deposit

A deposit of 10% of the selling price is usually required once contracts are exchanged. You will hand this 10% deposit to the seller's solicitor or settlement agent. The amount will be put in a trust account.

Cooling-Off Period

If you want to withdraw from the contract, you can do so during the cooling-off period. This period is effective 3 to 5 working days after the contract is exchanged. During this period, you can organise strata, building and pest inspections. This cooling-off period does not apply for buyers and sellers in an auction.


A property is considered settled when the balance of the property price and other adjustments have been paid and the title and transfer of documents have been exchanged. Settlement takes place 2 to 6 weeks after contracts have been signed by yourself and the seller.

State Tax

Stamp duty is a government tax paid during settlement. It is a percentage of the property's market value. The amount, however, varies according to territory or state. Ask your real estate agent about this further.

Buying at Auctions

A fast and practical way to purchase a home is through auctions. Below are some pointers that can help you get a head start.

Get Pre-Approved

It is never a good idea to place a bid when you are not yet pre-approved. Getting pre-approved allows you to bid within your means since you know how much you can spend.

Read the Contract

Before a property that you want to buy goes to auction, try to get a copy of the sales contract from the real estate agent handling the property. Even before the property goes to auction, you can start doing small negotiations. Make sure though that you seek legal advice to ensure the validity of the contract.

Do Your Research

Research on different property prices and look into past & current market values to give you an idea if the property you want to buy at the auction is priced well or not. Inspect the area too. Study the location if it meets your neighbourhood requirements.

Additionally, it wouldn’t hurt to consider the possibility of selling that particular property in the future. Research on the capital growth potential in store for you 5, 10 or 15 years from now.

Inspect Thoroughly

Take note of all the property’s defects you see during the inspection. Arrange for a building and pest inspection to see the actual condition of the property. What may seem like a bargain at first may not be the case in the future, especially if you need to shell out huge sums of money on remodelling and repair.

Treat it as a business deal

Treating the bidding process as a business deal is an advantage. It can help you make a clear investment decision.

For impulsive buyers who easily develop an attachment to material things, seek the help of a family member or a friend who can guide you during the bidding process. They can help you make a clear and practical decision.
