Overseas Buyers - Buyers Agent Sydney

Some of the difficulties faced are:

  • You cannot inspect the property
  • Poor or no knowledge of current market conditions
  • Paying more than the value of the property
  • Problems negotiating from overseas
  • Different time zones when dealing with the FIRB, Agents and Professionals during Australian business hours
  • If you wait to purchase a property upon your return to Australia, you are likely to be priced out of the market, the market is rising at a very fast pace.

 

You either need to:-

  • Purchase a property upon your return to Australia – you will then miss out on present market conditions as properties are rising daily.
  • Engage Tracey to find and purchase your property
  • Rely on family and friends to do your legwork and guesswork for you, then expect them to negotiate the absolute lowest price, then organise all the professional needed i.e, pest and building reports, strata reports, lawyers etc., (all of this will not happen, especially if you are up against Tracey).

 

With Foreign Investors, investors have been told by Agents and marketing companies that the properties they have been introduced to could not fail, but many have done precisely that. The reality is some investments, especially off the plan made by expats and foreigners have proven to be risky at best and disastrous at worst.

But this proves that all the more reason why you should have Tracey as your Buyers Advocate, handling your Sydney property purchase.

You face some very real, serious and potentially costly, challenges.  How do you know that what you are reading or hearing? Are the property descriptions and photos accurate? Who can tell you if It is located in the right area? Is this a fair price?  and of course, is it a good investment?

 

Tracey handles the whole process from start to finish:

  • Searching and assessing the best properties that fit your needs.
  • Contacting her extensive and enviable list of selling agents, including those whose properties might not even be listed yet.
  • Preparing communications reports, to keep you fully informed and completely at ease, including your local friends or family if required.
  • Fully coordinating the purchase i.e., purchasing your property, either by auction or negotiation. Organizing signatories, solicitors and contracts etc.,.
  • Facilitating pre-settlement inspection and settlement procedures.
  • Recommending Professionals, Lawyers, Strata Inspectors, Pest/Building Inspectors, Trades People and Property Management.

 

You do not need to submit an application for approval to acquire real estate in Australia if:

      • You are an Australian citizen living abroad;
      • Your spouse is an Australian citizen (not a permanent resident) and you are purchasing residential real estate in both  names as joint tenants (not tenants in common);
