It's a 30 days full advisory.

-Need to know your Australian tax credits, negative gearing, depreciation, and how much tax you may pay?

Whether you should buy BEFORE leaving for Australia or AFTER you arrive. And so on.

Purchased off-plan need to decide whether to settle, on-sell, resell, or let it go? You need this service TO MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION, AND TO PROTECT YOURSELF FINANCIALLY AND LEGALLY.


The great news about Australia is that MUCH OF THIS INFORMATION is available to the public.

Usually for a price by subscribing to different sources. Some is free on line. But the real problem is, there is no ONE SINGLE source for all this data, AND not only do you have to find it, which can take WEEKS, if not MONTHS, you THEN have to be able to interpret it correctly.

For example, you may discover that properties are on the resale market on average for 60 days in your area. Is that GOOD, or poor?

BUT WHAT IS NOT AVAILABLE is the first hand knowledge of the market, of developers, or locations, and the experience to determine what it all means.

UNTIL NOW!

MICHAEL BENTLEY'S AUSTRALIAN PROPERTY ADVISORY SERVICE DOES ALL THIS FOR YOU FOR ONE SINGLE AFFORDABLE FEE.

"Thank you for your kind advice which has indeed been very useful Michael...It's a treat to be talking to a pro who is neutral (vis a vis an agent or even the lawyer) and also in the know of everything, feel very lucky indeed"

"Thank you for the time you gave me. I found your knowledge of the property scene and the firsthand information you gave, very useful... You are a cut above other agents"

"Thank you very much for your detailed reply. You have given us a lot to think about. In fact many things that we hadn't even considered!"

"Many thanks for the huge advice and assistance you gave us. Your tireless and good natured coordination of the whole process and its many aspects have been and continue to be invaluable, including putting us in touch with the relevant experts in the necessary fields and the friendly tips you are always ready and willing to offer".

MICHAEL'S ADVISORY IS NOT LIMITED TO, BUT CAN INCLUDE:

Helping to get your finance sorted out, a solicitor engaged, your tax arranged.

He can provide cash flows, costs analysis, rent analysis, research, price comparisons, per sq. metre rates and suburb profile among other information to help you make an informed decision.

As he is working WITH YOU, and is NOT employed by a developer or the seller, he will GIVE YOU all the benefits of his first hand experience and information.

He can provide a knowledgeable second "set of eyes" on properties being offered to you. He has no "hidden agenda" - to get you to buy or not to buy- will just provide expert real estate opinion- like your accoutant or solicitor- but from an expert real estate viewpoint.

BEST OF ALL... YOU WORK DIRECTLY WITH MIKE HIMSELF.

Alan T lives in Singapore, and owns 2 Australian properties together with his wife.

They decided to purchase an off the plan apartment in Melbourne for their third property for over $800,000.

They planned on sending their children possibly to school/university in Melbourne in due course.

They had viewed the plans, prices and the brochure, but were unsure if it was a good investment or not.

They engaged Mike's advisory service, reasoning that the fee of AU$1,880 was a tiny percentage of what they were about to pay, and a small price to pay to get an experienced and honest opinion on whether they were about to purchase a great property, or make a very expensive mistake.

Mike was able to let them know mostly through WhatsApp and email about the developer, the prices per square metre, the developers reputation and track record of investment success, did a cash flow for them, put them in touch with a finance broker for a mortgage, worked out their potential land tax bill, researched the rental market and potential for a tenant.

In addition, he provided them with exact rate of both capital growth and rental in that location for similar properties over the past 12 months, past 36 months, and past decade, something the developer was unable (or unwilling) to provide.

He advised them of the rental yield, which differed from the developers' guarantee, and advised them on the floor plan.

In the meantime, the selling real estate agent was very aggressive in following Alan up, warning him he would miss this "bargain", that it was the "last one" available, that "others" wanted to buy it even at "higher prices"- the developer was going to "increase the price in just days"-

...he MUST sign the contract or he will "miss out".

Mike discussed with them the benefits of proceeding against not proceeding, as he was not hindered by any conflict of interest.

After a full review of Mike's information and suggestions and research, Alan then decided against purchasing, got his 10% deposit back, and was very relieved as he avoided making a potentially very expensive mistake.

"Mike provided boundless energy towards our purchase, took care of the finance, arranged lawyers, a building inspection, helped us structure it correctly for tax, and when a last minute hitch occurred with the seller deciding NOT to sell, kept calm, and more importantly kept US calm, and used his experience and knowledge to get the deal back for us"
