“Smart investing = great retirement”
Property Wizards found Brian & Cynthia Starcevich an ideal investment property that gave them great peace of mind for their retirement.
“We want to keep investing in property and look forward to being able to retire within the next five years. This is our primary goal, as well as having a comfortable retirement where we don’t have to worry about money. Working with Property Wizards was a beneficial experience. It was great having the systems there to find the right property for growth. It eliminated stress – especially at the time we bought – as we had a lot on our plate and would have struggled to find out for ourselves how to achieve what we did.”
We are baby boomers and very aware that the current pension is not sufficient for us to enjoy a good lifestyle upon retirement. We don’t want to have to count our pennies. “I don’t mind counting dollars, but I don’t want to have to worry about counting the cents”. To ensure a comfortable retirement with financial freedom, we started considering buying property.
Our financial advisor said we should buy an investment property for tax benefits, and recommended Property Wizards. We engaged Property Wizards and asked them to find something we could buy and hold for the long term, so it would give us maximum capital growth.
Within a few days of signing up with Property Wizards, they found a great property for us. Within four days, we signed the offer and acceptance, and within two months we owned the property.
It was a very fast process and definitely worth the money as we didn’t have to spend days and weeks scouring the paper and internet looking for the right property.
The property is central to schools, shops, the railway line and the beach. We have had a tenant in the property for over two years. Less than three months after settlement the property had gone up in value by about $50,000. That is incredible growth – just for buying at the right time in the right place.
In today’s market, the property, which is on a 700sqm block, would be valued at a growth of around $100,000 – and that is in a buyer’s market!
We are looking forward to the next property market growth phase to see the value increase, especially with all the development that is occurring in the area at the moment. The area is really progressing, this can only mean good things for us.
