Our methodical, step by step approach to buying a house in Perth has proven to be hugely successful for our clients. As professional property buyers, we understand that a home is a very personal choice and not all your criteria can be explained by logic – it must feel right too.
So we work with not only what we call ‘hard criteria’ such as the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, the suburb you’d like to live in and so on, but also ‘soft criteria’ that include quality, style, spaciousness, street appeal and the like, that can also influence a final decision for those looking to buy a house.
To assist with the process, we may ask you to send us examples of WA homes you like the look of so we can get a clear idea of what feels right for you. At the same time, we want to ensure your home stacks up as a great investment so you can benefit from good capital growth should you wish to sell your home.
By acting as an independent property buyer and holding steadfast to a set of agreed criteria, we effectively remove the possibility of making a wrong decision based on impulse or sheer frustration and which you might regret down the line.
Instead, we’re applying the unrivalled knowledge that we’ve accumulated over the years to give clients a decided advantage at all stages of the buying process.
“Even though a real estate agent may be very nice towards you, remember they work for the seller, not the buyer. It’s required of them by law!”
Step 1 – We establish your requirements
During our initial, free consultation we’ll discuss the type of property, the choice of suburb and any other pertinent considerations you may have such as proximity to schools, shopping, transport, leisure activities and infrastructure.
Step 2 – Property search
Once you give us the go-ahead, we’ll commence a comprehensive search of Perth properties available for sale within your agreed criteria. Not only do we have access to every listed property available, our networking skills enable us to find many “silent sales” before they come on the market, which often represent exceptional value for money and huge capital growth potential.
During this phase we get to know exactly what you like and don’t like, because this is your home and not just an investment property.
Step 3 – A shortlist
We then investigate a ‘shortlist’ of properties on your behalf and prioritise the best candidates. When we view a property we take many digital photos to send you that show the good and the bad so you can get a real feel for the property. This step saves time and money as we guide you through the selection process.
Step 4 – Due Diligence
This is where our experience really comes into play. If you are keen to proceed, we evaluate and assess the property in more detail. We look for ‘potential problems’ or expenses to factor in. We also include a range of protective conditions in the Contract of Sale that are in your favour, not the seller’s.
Step 5 – Accurate Pricing
We obtain up to date information about the property as well as comparable sales data to assist in assessing its true worth, which ensures you’ll never pay too much.
Step 6 Acquisition Strategy
Now we’re getting to the pointy end of the process. Once you’re happy this is the right property plus we’re convinced it ticks all the boxes for your home buying strategy and it’s at an attractive price point to begin with, we negotiate with the agent on your behalf, using all our legal tricks of the trade, to ensure that you obtain the property for the lowest possible price.
