Our Sydney Buyers agent team helped a couple relocating from Melbourne to Sydney due to work.
Our brief was the clients preferred the Sydney Eastern Suburbs as they had a boat and wanted to get out onto the water but didn’t think they could afford a home close to the ocean and to the city, and thought they would have to live further out.
We provided our client with the benefit of decades of research and analysis as we outlined why this particular property meets out strict search criteria. We secured the property prior to auction as the client wanted to avoid auctions and was purchased sight unseen
We found this property is approx. 3km to the CBD in the blue-chip suburb of Paddington in a quiet, tree lined street. It is within walking distance to all amenities and close their work. The property has character and charm so they can live comfortably now but is a blank canvas and they can add value with future renovations.
We found this property around 6km form the Brisbane CBD in the suburb of Tarragindi. We originally ruled this property out as it was approx. $100k over their budget. Having originally gone under contract for close to that figure, the contract fell over and with the sellers needing to sell and with a strong agent relationship, we picked it up around our clients budget the very next day.
