INITIAL CONSULTATION FREE:
We will meet with you (or arrange a teleconference) to discuss your key requirements and expectations to fully understand your needs.
Using your “Buyers Brief” we undertake extensive research to match your purchasing/leasing criteria with properties for sale/for lease. We contact a wide selection of selling/leasing agents in the target area and review advertising material and make request of Real Estate Agents as to other property likely to come onto the market (silent listings). We also find private sales/rentals and listings using a wide variety of research methods (we don’t just look up the real estate classifieds!). We deflect all the stress of dealing with real estate agents and cut through the sales/rentals speak to find properties that best suit your brief.
We narrow down this research to a shortlist of suitable properties that meet your needs and email these to you. We speed up the process of searching so you only review properties that most closely match your requirements.
Once we have compiled a shortlist and obtained your feedback on suitability, we arrange a private inspection for a time that is convenient for you. Rather than rushing from one inspection to the next, we arrange a time that fits in with your schedule saving you countless hours of research. If you are based out side of the search area, we will initially inspect on your behalf.
EVALUATION & NEGOTIATION:
Once you are satisfied the target property has met your needs, we review the current market value of the selected property, using a combination of our local knowledge and our extensive sales/rentals database showing comparable sales/rentals in the chosen area.
Then we commence negotiations with the seller/lessor or seller’s agent/lessor’s agent. This is where our knowledge and skill come to the forefront to secure the property at the best possible price, terms and conditions.
LEGAL REVIEW & BUILDING and PEST REPORTS:
Once the offer has been accepted, we strongly recommend you engage a building and pest inspector if purchasing. Your solicitor will also provide advice and review the contract of sale/lease to check all legal requirements are satisfied. We can assist with the coordination of these and other necessary support services. (Please Note; the purchaser pays separate fees for pest and building inspections, strata searches and legal conveyancing.) We will also give you our personal opinion and any reports.
We keep you informed of any other issues that may arise in the lead up to settlement and can provide assistance you may require along the way. For investor clients, we provide advice on rental values and help you select competent local property managers.
