Francois, Hills Districts
THE BRIEF: Having engaged us previously in 2015, Francois sought our services again for a second investment property in Sydney’s family-friendly Hills districts. Being overseas precludes him from being able to easily buy and having a trusted advocate on side makes all the difference. Francois’s preference was for a freestanding house with good land value content, attractive to local family renters in a quiet owner-occupier dominated area, all with a very restrictive budget of $750,000.
OVERVIEW: 38 property enquiries were made with just 5 properties shortlisted over a 4 week search period. Stock was very tight in this area for this price bracket and it was certainly a challenging brief. Cathy managed to secure a terrific 4 bedroom brick home that had a contract fall over during the cool off period, and had a previous offer exceeding $800,000 (which the vendor had earlier rejected) for just $730,000. Not only was it exceptional buying, but it was the cheapest 4 bedroom house to sell in the area for 18 months.
“As an overseas investor, Jacque Parker and Catherine McGowan from House Search Australia helped us to search, shortlist, negotiate and purchase two separate investment properties in Sydney. They have an in-depth knowledge of the Sydney property market growth areas and property values. They helped us to find and negotiate properties in suburbs we originally thought we would not be able to buy with our budget. They are very responsive and we rate their trustworthiness very highly. We certainly recommend House Search Australia”
