Despite living locally, Sam and Brian faced an uphill battle in their quest for a new home. They had spent more than 2 years searching Brisbane’s western suburbs, especially Kenmore, Chapel Hill, and Indooroopilly, without success. Over this period, they watched property prices soar by more than 35%. They had a clear vision for a 4-bed, 2-bath house within a budget of $1.1-1.2 million (and hopes for a swimming pool). However, the journey was tougher than they anticipated.
Many homes in their desired locales were situated on steep, heavily timbered blocks, with some at risk of flooding. They were cautious about potential pitfalls including the quality of construction, risks from protected trees, flooding, drainage, erosion, underground utilities and the future prospects of installing a pool. These myriad of concerns deterred them from making offers.
Understanding the need for expert guidance, Sam and Brian engaged Your Property Hound in June 2023 for a Search-to-Settlement Service. They hoped we could allay their fears, instilling confidence, and assist them to make a well-informed home purchase decision.
Within just 3 weeks of engaging Buyer’s Agent Tracy Leske, Sam and Brian secured a fantastic home in beautiful Fig Tree Pocket, despite facing a competitive multiple offer situation. Thanks to Tracy’s prompt actions, in-depth market knowledge, and robust negotiation skills, not only was the property acquired swiftly, but they also saved $10,000 on the purchase. (The agent later informed them that a higher offer had been received.)
While the purchase process was expedited, it was underpinned by comprehensive research and thorough investigations. This ensured all of Sam and Brian’s concerns were directly addressed, reinforcing their confidence in the decision to purchase.
