About the home buyers’ & their needs

Family of 4, parents with two primary school aged children.
Having moved around for work over the past few years, our client was looking to settle down in Brisbane. They wanted to buy somewhere to live, but also ensure the property meets our strict investment criteria as well.

Some of their important criteria was:

  • Primary school to be a short drive or walk
  • 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 cars
  • 2 living areas
  • North side of Brisbane, close to the Airport

How we helped

The majority of properties within their budget were gentrifying suburbs, where older people are moving on and younger professional couples were replacing them to get into nearby schools.

As a result, a lot of the properties were only 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom and ripe for a renovation. More modern 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom homes like they were wanting were priced above their budget.

So in the end we were able to secure a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 2 car property within their budget that we could make a few small internal design changes to turn into a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 car home. Furthermore as it was split over two levels, there was also the required 2 living spaces. The property was a short 5 minute walk to the nearby primary school in Brisbane’s north, that was a must for them.

The purchase and renovation took place all within their budget and left them with an additional $40,000 in equity upon completion.

  • Really appreciate the time and walk through with the process and considering that we are in different state, you have made the process really easy. I was really satisfied with the level of the engagement and detail that you have provided. I was also really impressed on how fast you were able to secure a tenant within a day after settlement of the property.
