Never Too Late to Start
Doreen Fenn | 56 | Registered Nurse | Duncraig, WA
I am originally from South Africa and after spending time in London and Saudi Arabia I arrived in Perth in 2000, bought a home and settled into my new life in Australia.
I knew that if I wanted to live comfortably after I ceased working, I would have to do something about creating a retirement fund. I needed to create some wealth relatively quickly in order to feel secure in the years to come and not be reliant on a pension. Furthermore I didn’t have any superannuation as a back up.
I knew that I would have to implement a plan quickly as I was already in my 50’s and didn’t want to have to keep working for another 10 years or more. I was advised by many people around me that property investment would be a safe way to work towards my goal and invest in my future.
I set about investing in my goal, as I didn’t know anything about real estate I thought I would be safe with a large well known company. WestPoint made everything sound so easy; I was pleased to become the owner of a 3 bedroom apartment in the CBD, with so much going for it. All I had to do was sit back and wait for 6 months whilst renovations were being completed. After this they would contact me with the go-ahead to sign tenants up and my first investment property was done, so, so easy.
Unfortunately the plan didn’t roll out like this, one year later and I had a battle on my hands when WestPoint went under and I along with many other unfortunates lost many thousands of dollars, thankful I didn’t loose as much as others who lost everything, but I still lost a significant amount of money.
Did I trust real estate agents? No……. But I still had to do something.
That’s when I was introduced to Trevor and his team. I was very concerned about trusting anyone again with my money and future, but in a very short period of time. I enjoyed receiving the constant personal attention focused on finding me the perfect property within my specifications and budget.
I felt total trust with the Property Wizards team.
Before I knew it I was matched up with a well located 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in a good area and within my budget. This time I bought something that I could go and see as well as physically touch, this time it was for real. The property is located in a fantastic position, central to everything you could need, plus the area is getting made over and revamped everywhere.
We snapped it up and I have had it tenanted the whole time. The property would have grown at least $100,000 since I bought it, which made me a very happy customer. I am looking forward to making my next purchase – there is no way that I would do it without Property Wizards by my side.
