“Our dream home in the suburb we wanted”
Property Wizards found Mary and Emmanuel Chanda’s dream home in the suburb they wanted.
“I cannot imagine how we would’ve purchased our perfect home without Property Wizard’s responsiveness and guidance. We bought the right property in the right area and experienced great capital growth. The process went so smoothly that we will continue to purchase more investment properties and add to the security of our retirement.”
As we were living in Kalgoorlie, but moving to Perth in a few years, we decided to sell our family home in Kalgoorlie and buy a property in Perth. We has a suburb in mind – Atwell. It is in a good position, close to Perth without being in the city, close to schools, shops and other amenities, including the train line, which is planned to extend to Atwell in the next few years.
We thought it’d be wise to buy sooner rather than later so we could buy where we wanted, in a good position, where we could enjoy good capital growth in the years to come. And, we weren’t sure how long it would take to find the perfect home.
We searched online for help as we knew that it’d be impossible to buy while in Kalgoorlie, especially as the market was hot and we wouldn’t be able to attend home opens. As we weren’t property buying experts and had limited knowledge of the Perth market, this added to our dilemma.
We found Property Wizards’ website as well as another buyer’s agency. We emailed both – the other one didn’t respond but Property Wizards contacted us immediately.
We discussed our situation. We had the right budget. We wanted a 4×2 home, with a nice back yard, ideally in Atwell. We signed up with Property Wizards and they were off and running. They communicated with us the whole time, telling us what they were looking at, what they had viewed, why certain properties weren’t suitable and what was next on the agenda. We were constantly informed, so much so that it felt like we’d been doing the research (minus all the hard work!) as we gained so much information from their search process.
Trevor soon found us a great property, but unfortunately it was not meant to be as we were outbid. The funny thing about that was how devastated Trevor was – it was like he had lost his perfect home! That was when we really knew Property Wizards took their business seriously, and to heart – we were sold on their service.
Two days later, a home a few doors down came onto the market – and it was even better than the first! Property Wizards had steely determination to make sure we did not lose out on this property.
We secured the house within two weeks of signing up with Property Wizards, in the suburb we wanted, within our budget, $8000 under the market price – an added bonus!
As we weren’t planning to move for a few years, we wanted to rent the property out, which we have done, providing us with extra income.
All in all, it was a fantastic experience. The amount of information we received was incredible, made the process so much easier and gave us confidence buying the property without seeing it. We had the property valued about a year ago and it had increased by over $150,000 in just a few years – another added bonus.
