Congratulations to Melinda who just settled on this great property located on the northern Gold Coast last week.
Purchased: May 2019
Client: Interstate Investor
Location: Northern Gold Coast
Original Advertised Price: $369,000
Clients Budget: $330,000
Our Purchase Price: $329,000
The Client: Based interstate, this first time investor buyer just wanted a property that would tick along without too much hassle while she worked hard to pay it off.
There is plenty of scope here add value down the track by converting the garage to additional living space, enclosing the front yard and the addition of a pergola BUT it's perfectly fine as is in the meantime.
The Property: Lived in and loved by the same owner for the last 18 years, this property was in great condition.
This 3 bedroom, one bathroom, SLUG home has everything a tenant could want - aircon, built ins, security screens, fans, new dishwasher, new carpet and fresh paint throughout.
A short walk to shops, schools and public transport - and just up the road from the coasts best theme parks.
Rental Return: This property was let at $385 per week within one week of hitting the rental market. Yep, over a 6% return from day one!
Client Savings: With 2 bedders in the same area selling at the same price, if not more than what we paid for this 3 bedder, there's plenty of price upswing built into this property from day one. We estimate this buyer would have had to spend another $20k minimum to secure an equivalent 3 bedder.
This is what comes from watching the property market like a hawk!
Congratulations Melinda - what a way to start your investment property portfolio!
