NEED HELP BUYING? DON'T WANT TO BE "SOLD" A
DON'T WANT TO MAKE AN (EXPENSIVE) MISTAKE?
A message from Mike:
"It can be very confusing, daunting, and perplexing trying to buy a property from distance in Australia.
Not to mention time consuming!
Who has THAT much time, no matter how much their desire is to purchase?
(That is WHY so many people end up buying at a property developers exhibition in Hong Kong, as the developers make it so easy: BUT this may NOT be the best way to buy! To say the least)
Not to mention the "other" way people try to buy- by looking non-stop at realestate.com.au or domain.com.au and trying to select a property from there!
That’s why I set up a new service to help prospective buyers from overseas.
Whether an investment property, or a home for their own future use!
By working closely WITH them, NOT selling them properties, but by guiding, advising and doing a lot of the time-consuming research and "behind the scenes" work with and for them.
To see just some of the steps buyers need to prepare when buying, see my FREE report below:
“The Seven Steps to Buying..Simplified” here!
Keep reading below to see how my new service for buyers which is already proving popular may be able to help you.
THINKING OF BUYING A PROPERTY IN AUSTRALIA?
NOT SURE WHERE TO START? THERE IS A LOT TO KNOW!
RULES AND REGULATIONS, NEW TAXES AND FINANCE RULES, RENTS AND TENANTS, LOCAL LAWS, HOUSES V APARTMENTS, CITY V CITY, HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS and so on and on.
The list of what you need to do AND to know seems endless.
And attending a developers property exhibition is not likely to be the BEST way forward as you will receive very selected information!
So, here are some of the steps you need to take. It can be daunting when you realise what you have to do to buy a foreign property.
