HOW TO SECURE YOUR DREAM AUSSIE PROPERTY IN THE NEXT 90 DAYS, OR LESS, WITHOUT STRESS, WITHOUT HAVING TO TALK TO AN AGENT, OR EVEN TRAVEL TO AUSTRALIA!

A message from Mike Bentley:

DO EITHER OF THESE APPLY TO YOU?

ARE YOU:

-WANTING TO BUY, FINANCE IS APPROVED, BUT FINDING IT HARD TO LOCATE THE RIGHT PROPERTY?

-WANTING TO SERIOUSLY THINK ABOUT BUYING. DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START?

-HAVE STARTED TO LOOK, NEED FURTHER HELP?

-HAVE TALKED TO FRIENDS, CONFUSED ON WHETHER A HOUSE OR APARTMENT, AND IN WHICH LOCATION?

-HAVE FOUND A POTENTIAL PROPERTY, UNSURE IF YOU SHOULD GO AHEAD?

OR, IS THIS YOU?

 -ALREADY PURCHASED?  BOUGHT OFF THE PLAN AND NOT YET COMPLETED?

-UNSURE WHETHER YOU SHOULD BUY A HOUSE OR APARTMENT?

-UNSURE WHICH CITY TO BUY IN? OR IN WHICH SUBURB?

-OWN PROPERTY ALREADY, UNSURE IF YOU SHOULD SELL?

-OWN PROPERTY, HAVING TROUBLE RENTING?

-WE CAN HELP! 

 

It can be very confusing, daunting, and perplexing trying to buy a property from distance in Australia.

There are 4 main ways to buy property in Australia: 

1. Contact a real estate agent/attend an exhibition.

2. Take a trip and look around.

3. Look non-stop on the internet.

4. Appoint your own "buyers agent".

While each of these ways has it's merits, briefly let me explain the downside of each.

1. Contact a real estate agent/attend an exhibition.

Of course, with the current situation, this is impossible right now anyway. BUT, when the virus restrictions end, is this STILL the best way? Real Estate agents are employed by the seller of the property. They have no obligation, legally or morally, to give YOU the buyer ANY relevant information that may affect your purchase.

And they can ONLY offer you what THEY have on their books to sell right now. You may have to contact 10 different agents, or attend 10 different exhibitions to find what you want.

2. Take a trip and look around.

If you live overseas, this SOUNDS like a good idea! Again, with the current situation, this is impossible right now anyway. However, without even mentioning HOW LONG a trip you may need, you ALSO need to fluke the right agent (see point 1 above!) and the right location, right property and right price WHEN you are there. In my personal experience this seldom happens. And for sure, you don't want to rush and buy within a week.

3. Look non-stop on the internet.

I really do not think I need to say anything else about this point. If this is YOUR strategy, give me a call in 12 months when you still haven't found anything and are even MORE confused than ever!  HERE IS MY NUMBER 9031 9669.

4. Appoint your own "buyers agent".

This is probably the most effective and best way to buy. BUT, not only does it come with a PRICE (2% to 3% of the purchase price) it is fraught with further difficulties: The Buyers Agent will normally select a half dozen properties, and then try everything to get you to buy one of them. As they do not get paid, unless YOU buy.

Paul Ryan (who co-founded Wizard Home Loans, so he has a LOT of property experience)  says when he used a buyer's agent, he found the process "a little bit unnerving".

"I didn't like the properties they short-listed. But I still felt the pressure on me to buy one as that's how they earn their commission. So I wasn't quite sure if they were acting in my best interests or their own," he says.

Each method has it's own distinct challenges.

That’s why I set up a new service to help prospective buyers from overseas.

Which offer you, the buyer, the best aspects of all those methods, at an AFFORDABLE PRICE!
