JUST PURCHASED: Beachside Investment Property with so many redevelopment choices!

Congratulations to Lance and Susan who have just purchased this great little development site on the southern end of the Gold Coast!!

Purchased: February 2019

This property offers them lots of options! They are planning on putting tenants in for a few years while they work on getting plans approved to build a duplex pair. They may even decide to fully renovate the property and move into it themselves in the long term.

Located less than 500m to the beach, we paid $749,500 for this property. With a holding income of $600 - $650pw it will tick along nicely until they decide on their next move.....

 

Whatever they decide, this property stood out for a number of reasons:

- development potential

- north facing backyard which is almost a must on the GC

- good layout and quality build for future substantial renovation down the track if they decide

- location! It doesn't get much better than this....

 

There are comparable sales in the same street for renovated properties at over $1,300,000 so they have plenty of scope to add value here without over capitalising.

 

Congratulations on purchasing your first investment property guys! What a way to start......!

JUST PURCHASED - Doing deals that leave my buyers speechless!

I originally spoke to this buyer back in 2015 when he was thinking of making a move from interstate.

Taking him a couple of years to get all his affairs in order, we were able to secure this apartment, located just a stones throw from the beach, at a great price. So much so, I left the buyer speechless when I called to say we got it at 'our price'!

Purchased: December 2018

Client: Interstate Owner Occupier

Location: Beachside Northern Gold Coast

Original Advertised Price: Offers over $570,000

Clients Budget: $600,000

Our Purchase Price: $542,000 incl all the furniture

The Client: Located interstate, this was a move the buyer had been considering for a few years.

Once he made the decision, we were able to swing into action and secure this great property on his behalf - much quicker than he expected!

Coming from interstate, we worked through the differences in the contract process, and due diligence accordingly - putting the buyer in contact with our network of professionals that could answer any questions he had so he could move forward with confidence. 

The Property: Located just a stones throw from one of the coasts best beaches, this 2 bedroom, two bathroom unit with an ideal aspect, north facing balcony and open plan living areas with floor to ceiling windows, will make a great home for this buyer. He can't wait to move in to escape the southern winters!

Clients Savings: Doing our due diligence, we knew what previous sales were in the building and used this as a negotiation tool with the agent. He knew that we knew our stuff - and the property was well over priced.

We were able to secure the property some $30,000 below asking price - and negotiated the furniture to be included as part of the deal. The buyer was left speechless!

JUST PURCHASED: Huge Family Home with heaps of room to add a Granny Flat! 

After living abroad for nearly 20 years, Kevin and Loan decided it was time to plan their move back to Australia.

With a young daughter getting ready to start school, they faced the all important decisions of which schools and areas were going to be best suited to them as a family? Where will they see some good capital growth and returns for their money?

All questions we were able to work through with them.....and they have a new family home they love - and can't wait to move into it in the coming years!

Purchased: November 2018

Client: Aussie Expats Living in Vietnam

Location: Beachside Southern Gold Coast

Original Advertised Price: Offers over $845,000

Clients Budget: $815,000

Our Purchase Price: $808,000

The Client: Doing alot of research themselves on the Gold Coast property market online before speaking to us, they thought they had a good understanding of the market. 

When we took them on as clients we were able to work through their short list and show them the difference between the properties online and the 'actual' property in real life. Everything looks great online with professionally 'staged' properties and they were surprised by the distortion of photos, wide angle lenses, etc

Working closely with them to fully understand their criteria, we  sourced and secured this property within six weeks on their behalf - a huge family home with scope to easily add a granny flat that ticked ALL the boxes.

The Property: An oversize four bedroom, three bathroom home with a pool and plenty of scope to easily add a granny flat - which will be a nice cash cow for them at $400pw down the track.

Located on 828m2 of land, high on the hill with views for miles, there is lots of scope here to renovate and add value down the track. 

Clients Savings: Being located in Vietnam it would have been impossible for the buyers to actually do all of this homework themselves so we saved them alot of time, money and angst that comes from trying to purchase a home remotely. 

We also had clauses in place on the contract seeing the property advertised for rent prior to settlement - meaning there was a tenant signed up and ready to move in three days after settlement. 

The buyers were so confident in the level of information we provided and our processes, that they haven't even personally seen the property!

JUST PURCHASED: Duplex Pair $140,000 below asking price!!

It took 12 months to come to fruition but Congratulations to Richard and Candy who just settled on this great little find at the southern end of the Gold Coast, just 300m to the beach!

Purchased: September 2018

Client: Originally hailing from NZ

Location: Beachside Southern Gold Coast

Original Advertised Price: $1,250,000 - then dropped to $1,100,000+

Clients Budget: $1,100,000

Our Purchase Price: $960,000

The Client: I originally met with Richard and Candy 12 months ago, nearly to the day. At the time were looking at selling up in New Zealand and relocating to Australia. Once here, and deciding on the highlands of QLD as their new home, they decided they'd like a 'weekender' by the beach. Somewhere they could come, bring their dogs, add some value to and look at potential Air BnB down the track. Coming from NZ, and just not knowing the Gold Coast well enough, they wanted to tap into my 22+ years local knowledge and 12+ years as a buyers agent.

Once I'd taken them on as clients, we sourced and secured this property within six weeks on their behalf - a deceased estate that ticked ALL the boxes.

The Property: A duplex pair on one title built early 2000's with scope to add value through either redeveloping down the track or renovation. Also with the option to be strata-titled, and on sell one of the duplexes for a tidy profit and retain the other. Just 300m to the beach, there will be plenty of capital growth upswing over the coming years.

Clients Savings: Knowing the agent well, we challenged them on the 'Listing Price' which far exceeded where the property's value sat. Being a deceased estate, there were a number of family members involved in the selling decision who just didn't understand the market and pricing - so the property sat for sale for some time.

Undertaking my usual research and due diligence, and armed with the insights into the situation, I was able to fashion an offer accordingly - which saw these buyers able to secure their perfect property at the right price! - some $140,000 below list price.

JUST PURCHASED: One of a kind beachside unit!

Congratulations to Keith and Joy who last month settled on their 'unique' unit in a boutique building at the northern end of the Gold Coast. 

Purchased: September 2018

Client: Originally hailing from Victoria, they had family in the area and decided after years of travelling Australia in a caravan, they'd like to call the Gold Coast home.

Location: Beachside Northern Gold Coast

Original Advertised Price: $699,000

Clients Budget: $750,000

Our Purchase Price: $665,000 incl all the furniture

The Client: Keith and Joy were referred to me by a family member that I also assisted to purchase on the Gold Coast years ago. After selling up in Melbourne and travelling Australia, they decided the Gold Coast was to be their new home. After living on the 37th floor in Melbourne, they wanted something that had all the benefits of living in the middle of the action, walking distance to good public transport BUT didn't want to be 'up with the birds' again so it had to be flat on the ground. A big ask on the GC!

The Property: A huge [262m2 (28 squares) of total space]  two bedroom, two bathroom unit with a massive 360 degree wrap around courtyard - cafes, restaurants and the tram at one end of the street, and the beach at the other. With views of the river and Surfers Paradise skyline, it ticked ALL the boxes. 

Clients Savings: In realestate, sometimes a fast game is a good game and it was definitely the case with this property. It hit the internet on a Tuesday afternoon, and by Thursday afternoon, we had inspected it, undertaken our due diligence and had it under contract. If it had have made it to Saturday's open home, we would have either missed out all together or paid a lot more for it as the agent had two back up contracts in place for more money and unfurnished from the open home.

Knowing the questions to ask and armed with an understanding of the sellers situation, I put together an offer and thought why not ask for the furniture too - which made the whole deal very easy for both the buyers and sellers - and the sellers agreed. I must admit pulling this deal together at this price even surprised me!!
