Finding THE One! – A Homebuyer Case Study

BUYER’S PROFILE & REQUIREMENTS

Our clients, Michael & Louise were expanding their Newman electrical business to Perth and relocating with his whole family. Michael reached out to Property Wizards with the hope to find the perfect dream home for his wife and 4 children.

The family prepared a list of criteria and detailed requirements as to how they want their dream home to look like. First of all, the house had to be a modern double-storey, with 4 bedrooms and a provision for a possible home theatre or office. In addition, they needed the property to have a pool for their children to enjoy.

Proximity to the ocean was very important and Michael and Louise were also keen to be near good schools for their children.

Third Time Lucky! – A Developer Case Study


 

BACKGROUND

In February 2020, Property Wizards was working with a client who wanted to buy, build and invest in a new child-care centre. With extensive research, we found our client two ideal, adjacent properties in Duncraig. This was the perfect because:

2. Situated on a corner lot with side road access
3. With high volume passing traffic
4. Close to the train and freeway to get into work

 

DUE DILIGENCE

With our client’s best interest in mind, Property Wizards structured a deal including land purchase and construction. Using Property Wizards’ due diligence, we presented an extensive 69-page document to ensure the property would be right for the purpose.
