BUYING YOUR INVESTMENT PROPERTY
Buying an investment property is quite different to buying a home. Your investment goals, not your heart, dictate what you should buy and where. Once we have a plan I can manage that whole process for you, presenting you with some solid options. Remember this is not about buying something you’d like to live in and in a region you like, but about buying a property that will maximise your return with least effort and risk.
For example if you’re looking at an investment property for rental then I have several key regions I work in where the rental potential is known to be good:
In each of these areas I have an established network of contacts to help find the right property, carry out pre-purchase inspections, check out the neighbourhood, do various checks and tests and estimate any costs. I collate all the information I need to find the right property, in the right neighbourhood and then negotiate the right price on your behalf.
Once I have presented you with a shortlist and you have chosen a suitable property I’ll:
- Get together all the building reports, drug tests and whatever else is required
- Liaise with solicitors
- Negotiate the best price
- Handle the offer process
- Manage every step for you.
In short, I’ll manage and structure the whole package – right – first time, and for a fixed fee.
When it comes to selling your investment property we’re again dealing with a different market. I’ll help you:
- Work out who the buyer is going to be – first time buyer or investor
- Set up the house to be attractive to the market
- If the buyer is an investor, present the benefits and do the homework on potential ROI (return on investment)
- Approach a database of over 3,000 potentials
I’ll also help with any complications like sitting tenants; protecting your income while the house is for sale, dealing with the tenant and transferring any tenancy agreements where appropriate.
