Papua New Guinea / October, 2016
I spent 12 months searching for an investment property in Brisbane, and despite coming very close several times, I was not able to seal the deal. I am based overseas, and my inability to inspect the properties myself and meet with the agents in person exacerbated the difficulties I was facing. I finally bit the bullet and engaged YPH to assist me in purchasing a property. They were recommended to me by a friend, but I still had my doubts as I imagined they would be keen to push a quick sale to secure the balance of their fee. I am happy to say that my doubts were quashed after the first week of inspections. Matt and Tracy were both brutally honest with properties that they inspected on my behalf. They did not sugar coat their feedback, and went out of their way to highlight every aspect, both good and bad, of the properties so that I could make an informed decision on whether to proceed, which was extremely reassuring to me as an overseas buyer. They provided me with video footage of the properties, and professional comparative market analysis documents which were informative and simple to interpret. They found me a property that fit all of my criteria within weeks and quickly determined the minimum price that the vendor would accept, enabling me to secure the property for a great price after being on the market for just 4 days. Their brilliant work continued throughout the settlement period as they assisted with the correspondence between my solicitor and bank, organised building and pest inspections, provided advice on immediate and future renovations, attended the pre-settlement inspection and helped me organise a property manager. If I had not engaged YPH I would still be looking for a property for another 12 months. Their fees are quite reasonable, and when compared to the opportunity cost of being without an investment property for over a year and the low purchase price they were able to secure, the fees are chicken feed. I have already recommended YPH to a few of my friends who are looking to purchase property, and I look forward to being in a position to purchase through YPH again. Thank you Matt and Tracy!
