Buying your first home is often a daunting a process. Moving from a completely different area just adds to the complexity of finding the perfect fit. Luckily for one happy couple they were referred to the Property Solutions 101 team by their colleagues at work.
“With our colleagues being professionals like us, they too lacked the time to view house after house, weekend after weekend. They raved about their experience with Property Solutions 101 and felt they had found their advocate to navigate the property market.”
“We met with Kylie and her team – who detailed the process, were transparent about the costs involved and began assessing our expectations and preferences.”
Within a week, our team at Property Solutions 101 had a shortlist of available properties and joined our clients for each visit, not only to support them with their interactions with real estate agents, but to gauge their responses to each home and fine tune the search process.
“Over a few weeks the team had managed to narrow it down to only showing us property styles and suburbs that we liked” the purchasers continued.
“Being new Novocastrians, Kylie and her team were able to provide us with inside knowledge about each suburb, its demographics and growth potential. We were introduced to suburbs we hadn’t thought of and we ended up buying in one of those suburbs, which has been a fantastic investment.”
“The property we bought was off-market, reflecting again the influence of having Kylie and her team on your side.”
“They facilitated the entire process of exchanging contracts and were always available for any questions or concerns, which provides security when dealing with your life savings.”
In the lead up to facilitating the sale, our team ensured we accompanied the young couple to each auction they attended.
“They approached auctions with professionalism, a well-defined plan and clear limits in place. They would adjust our limits to ensure that we did not over invest, which prevented us from letting our hearts and egos making big mistakes.”
Having since moved away for work and they have entrusted the Property Solutions 101 team with managing their investment property.
“We trust them completely and know that they would have our interests at the forefront but would also engage with our tenants with integrity and professionalism.”
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being able to focus on work and sit back knowing our investment is being cared for in the best hands.”
“They’ve helped us navigate a number of potential issues that every house investor experiences but ensured these issues were solved quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. So, our tenants were happy, and we were happy.”
“Enlisting the help of Property Solutions 101 was the best decision we made. It was an excellent financial decision as well as a personal one.”
“We became close with the team through the course of the journey and that is a major part of the reason why we trust them.”
