“I sold my property to help me have a year off work”

Karen Muddell | Fitness Professional | Sydney, NSW

My work keeps me busy but I understand how important it is to have access to opportunity when required and my story is about just that.

I have a few investments and one property was in Perth. I had been watching the market for some time, reviewing what was happening and looking for an area where I would buy. I decided that I would invest in the West Coast. The market hadn’t peaked like it had in Sydney so I knew I would be able to get a good property at a reasonable price and obtain good growth in the next few years.

Working in the corporate world in Sydney means there is one thing that I definitely can’t buy which is my time. I knew that I would have to work with someone if I was to buy a property in Perth. I didn’t have the time nor the funds to be flying back and forth and staying in hotels in order to make a successful purchase especially in a hot market. I contacted Property Wizards.

My budget was limited so Property Wizards and I decided on a unit. I bought a modernised one-bedroom unit in North Perth on Russell Street. The unit was super close to everything and walking distance to the city, plus it was a brilliant suburb for capital growth because of its location and lifestyle appeal. There were already tenants in the property so I didn’t have to worry about losing income while trying to locate new ones. I secured the unit  at a great price.

I found myself in a personal situation where I wanted to take a year off work from the corporate world to set up business of my own as a fitness professional. In order to do this comfortably without any financial stress I decided to sell the property in North Perth. I sold the property for a third more and this has allowed me to live very comfortably since I left work.

Having the property grow and work so hard for me while I continued to live life would have been wonderful, however it would have been challenging to manage the investment costs on a monthly basis whilst trying to start up a business at the same time. Because of this I decided to pursue a different path in life I had options available to give me the freedom to do this.

I was able to sell my property in Perth and even though I had only owned it for a short time, I was still able to make a nice profit which has helped me to take time off work to establish my own business.

The success came from using Property Wizards systems to ensure that I brought a property with all the right money making factors.
