Brisbane, QLD / February, 2016
I engaged the services of Your Property Hound to help me locate and purchase a quality investment property. I am very happy with the results. From our first meeting of introduction I found Matt very helpful with answering my queries and explaining how Your Property Hound could help me achieve my goal. It didn’t take long for Matt to narrow down the buyers brief to determine what type of property and location would best suit my budget and risk profile. He did this by providing me with easy to interpret snap shots of properties that were on the market to obtain my feedback. After providing feedback on the property Matt would refine the search again to narrow down the market. Matt’s advice on house styles and construction types were also essential during this process. Once we had a house style and approximate area to purchase in Matt began the detailed searches for the relevant properties in that preferred neighbourhood/s. His “at a glance” spread sheets for the selected properties made it easy to compare between possible purchases. After selecting properties of particular interest, Matt organized a day to inspect the properties together. Matt’s organization skills enabled us to go from one property to the next with minimal waiting and fuss. His thoroughness during these inspections was amazing. He documented both pro’s and con’s of the property, asked all the relevant questions of the sales agent and videoed each property for further reference. At the end of the viewings, I had a great understanding of the property market in the area and what my budget would achieve. Additionally, Matt was able to organize through his network of real estate agents, to view a property that had not yet been advertised online. With the knowledge gained from the past inspections it was clear that we had found a perfect property to invest in. At this stage Matt did further research on sales prices in the area and with my budget in mind, we determined the offer to submit. At this stage, Matt liaised directly with the sales agent and vendors and was able to negotiate favourable terms with cost and contract conditions. Matts experience and attention to detail in this aspect was a massive benefit. Once the contract was settled, Matt continued his service with helping arrange all the relevant building and pest inspections, convayancing and pre settlement inspections. I was kept informed and updated at all times. I am very happy with the service that Matt Reeves and Your Property Hound have provided and will unreservedly recommend their services to others wanting an experienced, well organized representative in buying property.
