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.
THE SEARCH BEGINS
Property Wizards understood how important our search project was for the family. We started a comprehensive search of suburbs that could deliver the right property and meet their detailed criteria.
Our initial search found that properties of the quality and size the clients required in their preferred suburbs were above budget. Our solution was to identify different suburbs that still matched their most important criteria: ocean proximity, quality of the house and proximity to good schools.
Property Wizards shortlisted five homes and submitted a written report to the client, which covered the following:
– Complete Suburb information
– Photos of the properties and the attributes (both good and bad)
– Professional comments and notes against each client requirement
For each property, potential schools were analysed, noting specific areas of excellence, number of students, current and historical ATAR ranking, because the right school was important to our clients.
The report also showed all rejected properties with reasons for why they were eliminated. Doing so
demonstrated comprehensive searching and showed that clients were receiving the best available homes.
WHEN YOU FIND “THE ONE”
Out of the shortlisted properties, clients fell in love with a property in Iluka, WA with a price range of low-mid $900,000s. It is a 2004 double-storey 204sq house in a quiet neighbourhood within close proximity of the beach, the coastal path, and Ocean Reef Marina.
What we loved about the property:
1. In a quiet cul-de-sac
2. Amongst quality homes, well-maintained
3. The house is modern, of high quality and renovated
4. 10-12-min walk to the beach
5. 3-min drive to Currambine Central Shopping Centre
6. In the intake area for a school the clients were delighted with
ENJOYING THE NEW FOUND HOME
Michael and Louise (and the children!) are now enjoying their family home and Property Wizards are delighted to have been part of their journey.
Here is what Louise has to say:
“It was April 2020, and we were living in the town of Newman, in the Pilbara region. We had been there for eight years, but decided that we were ready to move back to Perth. However, Covid had struck, and travelling to view any properties had become near impossible. We decided to research Buyers Agents in Perth, and liked what we read about Liz. We contacted her, and she listened to all of our requirements for our family home, and offered us first rate information on local schools, which was important to us, as we have four children. We felt confident as Liz was so thorough, and with each property she viewed for us, she provided many, many photos, as well as information that we probably wouldn’t have even thought about if we were doing it on our own. Liz contacted us to let us know that she had found a home that she believed would be perfect for us. We trusted her so much that we ended up buying that home without even seeing it. Liz negotiated an excellent price for us, and she even persuaded the owner to fix the problems in the roof, so that we could move in with all repairs done. We are so happy in our family home. We couldn’t have been happier with the outstanding service we received from Liz. From start to finish we found the whole process enjoyable and stress free. Liz also went above and beyond by introducing us to her network to help our electrical business expand in Perth. We have recommended her to several friends, and we will be using her services again in the future for purchasing investment properties.”
