Buyers Agent Eastern Suburbs

Purchased 5/57 New Beach Road, Darling Point

 

Client Brief: Whole floor apartment with water & harbour bridge views in Darling Point. 3/4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and double parking. Budget: Circa $7,000,000

Result:  The property was a deceased estate and with no chance of negotiating prior to auction, Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents executed a proven auction strategy, completely removing his clients emotions and anxiety from the process.

After 21 bids from 3 bidders within several minutes, Rodney McLoughlin’s aggressive bidding eliminated the competition and secured the property well within his clients expectations.

He is a clear communicator and genuinely a really nice guy to deal with. His research was helpful in qualifying our thoughts on the property and expected price range and reserve. We agreed a clear strategy for auction, he navigated the auction and other bidders seamlessly, predicting each move and ultimately he successfully secured the property for us. Engaging his services for auction bidding was absolutely the best decision for us to get the outcome we were after. Highly recommend.

Purchased 5/259-261 Maroubra Rd Maroubra

Buyers Agent Eastern Suburbs

Purchased 5/259-261 Maroubra Rd Maroubra

 

Client Brief: 2 bedroom garden apartment in the Eastern Suburbs. Must have a car space and be a level walk to the shops and transport. Also, be in a security building suitable for an elderly lady and her pet dog. Price range: Circa $1,000,000

Result:  After viewing around 100 apartments online and walking through 12 apartments, Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents found the perfect garden apartment in Maroubra.

The apartment was just listed and scheduled for auction in 3 weeks. With substantial buyer enquiry due to the low price guide, convenient location and well maintained complex, time was of the essence.

Rodney McLoughlin provided detailed information to his client regarding comparable sales and the strata information.  This enabled them to establish the right price to possibly secure the property prior to auction.

Within 12 hours of submitting the right offer, the vendors agreed to their first offer and contracts were exchanged unconditionally.  Rodney’s client was extremely happy to secure the property without having to go to auction and can move into the garden apartment in 5 weeks.

Testimonial: Rodney saved the day. In my 80th year I decided I would relocate from the Northern Beaches to the East. I wasn’t familiar with the geography and was dependent on public transport. Against all odds Rodney got me installed in a flat which tick my boxers, that I could afford, which wasn’t easy. In retrospect, it seemed easy thanks to Rodney from TBAS Buyers Agents. Thank you Rodney you are a super hero.

Purchased 6 Foots Place Maroubra

Buyers Agents Eastern Suburbs

Purchased 6 Foots Place Maroubra

 

Client Brief: Free-standing house in Maroubra on a large level block. Must be in a quiet street suitable for young children and close to Maroubra Beach. Also, suitable to add value through renovations.

Result:  With a very limited supply of free-standing properties in Maroubra that have potential to add significant value, it was always going to be a challenge to secure 6 Foots Pl.

The key elements in purchasing a property in a rising market is understanding the the value of the property and knowing what it will sell for, which requires comprehensive research of recent sales, including land size and improvements on the properties.

Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents provided his clients with a comprehensive property report and was able to predict the ideal price range to secure 6 Foots Pl. at auction.

The on-site auction had 12 registered bidders with 5 active bidders, but as usual the majority of buyers at the auction were ill-informed and Rodney’s well executed auction strategy and precise price analysis enabled him to easily secure the property well within his clients budget.

Testimonial: Buying a property in Sydney is intimidating at the best of times and even more so in the current market.

We just bought our first family home using the services of Rodney McLoughlin of TBAS and couldn’t be happier! His experience, knowledge, professionalism and passion was obvious from the outset. Getting a detailed analysis of the property we were interested in gave us the confidence we were buying our dream home at the right price.

You have someone on your side working for a great result the whole way. Our property went to auction and knowing Rodney was in our corner on the day allowed us to actually enjoy the process knowing we were in with the best chance……. and we got it!

5 Stars Rodney McLoughlin ….. you were brilliant!!

Buyers Agent Sydney

Purchased 39 Condover Street North Balgowlah

 

Client Brief: Modern family home in quiet location with 4/5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, double parking and a swimming pool for around $4,000,000

Result:  As with most parts of Sydney, there is a limited supply of free-standing properties, hence the fierce competition at auctions.

Rodney’s clients identified a perfect property matching their brief, backing onto a reserve, but like every A grade property going to auction, the buyer interest was phenomenal.

Leading up to the auction, it was imperative Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents provided his clients with the correct property data to anticipate a probable selling price and draft a suitable auction strategy to have an optimum chance of securing the property.

The auction had 10 registered bidders with 4 active, but as usual the majority of buyers at the auction were ill-informed and Rodney’s well executed auction strategy and precise price analysis enabled him to easily secure the property well within his clients budget.

Testimonial: We recently used Rodney to purchase a wonderful property in North Balgowlah. He was excellent and was instrumental in us winning the auction. Thanks Rodney!

Client Brief: Three/four bedroom house in Bowral, suitable for a growing doctors practice, under $1,500,000

Result:  The brief was always going to be challenging for Julie Bennett from TBAS® Buyers Agents Sothern Highlands, because of the lack of properties in Bowral suitable for a doctors practices, however she was up for the challenge.

Julie’s wealth of knowledge of Bowral and close ties to the community, including all the local selling agents gave her clients the best possible chance of securing a suitable property for their practice.

It took approximately 2 months and countless inspections of properties that wouldn’t accommodate a doctors practice to finally identify the perfect property within their budget.

Purchased 5/28 Folkestone Parade Botany

 

Client Brief: Three Bedroom apartment, with 2 bathrooms and double parking in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney for under $1,000,000. Must be in a small complex.

Result:  With a tight budget to purchase a three bedroom apartment in the Eastern Suburbs, Rodney McLoughlin’s clients had to consider their location carefully if they were to find a suitable property that matched their brief. 

The clients identified a suitable apartment, but unfortunately it was leased and didn’t expire for approximately 6 months.  Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents explained to his clients this would eliminate the majority of buyers, therefore reducing the eventual sales price, which appealed to his clients.

The sales agent was very eager to negotiate a price prior to the scheduled auction, that was only several days away. Knowing we wouldn’t have much or any competition at auction, in this scenario it was best to put the vendors under pressure at auction where the negotiations were completely transparent. 

As expected, Rodney McLoughlin’s clients were the only registered bidders at auction, and after putting the auctioneer and vendors under pressure during the auction with 10 minutes of negotiations, Rodney Mcloughlin was able to negotiate a price well below his clients expectations.

Client Brief: Renovated free-standing house with 4 bedrooms and double parking.

Location:  Croydon area

Budget: Circa $2,000,000

 

Result:  After finding the prefect property in Croydon, we had no choice but to compete with around 10 registered bidders at the auction. In a booming Sydney Real Estate market, it can prove challenging to convince vendors to sell prior to auction.

During the week leading up to the auction, Tori Cheung & Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents were instrumental in helping their clients completely understand a probable selling price, enabling them to prepare for multiple scenarios on the day.

On auction day, the competition was aggressive, with 6 of the 10 registered bidders vying for the property. Our well structured auction bidding strategy and accurate price analysis ensured our clients were well prepared and were the successful new owners.

Client Brief: Older style free-standing house with Character around Maroubra, Clovelly, Coogee area. Must have room for a large dog. Will do minor cosmetic renovations. Ideally, the property should be within walking distance to the beach and located on a quiet street.

 

Result:  Finding an older style free-standing house with character and a large backyard, within walking distance to a beach in the Eastern Suburbs was definitely going to be a challenge.

After receiving a tip off from contacts in the Maroubra area about a deceased estate that matched the brief was about to come on the market, Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents commenced his due diligence and market research on the property to enable him to get a jump on the other 20 interested parties that had requested a contract for sale and intended to purchase the property at auction.

Within seven days of the property listed for public auction, Rodney managed to convince the selling agents and the four benefactors of the estate it was in their best interest to sell the property prior to the scheduled auction, eliminating the other 20 interested parties. 

This was an extraordinary result for his client in a booming Sydney Real Estate market.

Purchased 9 Wadsley Cres Connells Point

Buyers Agent Sydney

Purchased 9 Wadsley Cres Connells Point

 

Client Brief: Purchase a free-standing house close to the water, with views. Must be near public transport and parks.

 

Result:  Our client had been looking to purchase for around 12 months and had been pipped at the post too many times to count.

Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents was engaged to provide independent advice on selected properties, providing detailed property reports and due diligence.

After only 7 days of engaging Rodney’s services, we identified a suitable property, provided a detailed evaluation, negotiated a favourable price and exchanged contracts.

 

Testimonial: I am pleased to provide a very positive review of Rodney McLoughlin’s assistance in helping me buy a very acceptable house when my time was running out

My first contact was that he attended an auction merely to bid on my behalf at short notice but ( fortunately) I was outbid by the competition. I was impressed by various aspects of his demeanour on that meeting . Deflated , I then engaged his future negotiation skills

My main recommendation is that it is clear that he genuinely strives to perform as high a quality service as he possibly can . I am certain this is his work ethos.

His skill for me personally was opening up the possibilities that I should consider in a house, beyond the more narrow limitations I had set by myself

His skill with real estate agents was to understand their psychology and the games they play with buyers, and the potential pitfalls of avoiding becoming part of a bidding war before one could happen, that once I had made a decision to buy was made that morning that the deal was legally’ exchanged’ by that Friday evening… to prevent being gazumped the following day which was a weekend.

To achieve this he drove to my work in the city to get me to sign in person.. ( I continued my working day unhindered) then drove to distant suburbia to the Real estate office, and continued to apply pressure on the agent to make good her word that legally binding exchange would occur that evening, Plus negotiated a realistically reduced price on my behalf

Visited the home with me after exchange again just to provide me with practical hints.

Client Brief: Inner West terrace around the Newtown area with strong capital growth potential. Parking would be a bonus.

 

Result:  After missing out at auction too many time to count, our clients engaged the services of Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents.

TBAS® was able to provide independent advice about the Sydney Property market, helping their clients understand how to interrupt agents price guides and the negotiations process.

It only took Rodney one week to secure a property in Enmore that had strong capital growth potential, with parking. 

The property was passed in at auction and after providing in-depth research on the property our clients where confident they were able to purchase the property at the right price with a strategic negotiations process over 48 hours.

Testimonial: We have been looking to buy our family home for almost 6 months and in this time we went through several stressful attempts to secure a property.

From the moment we engaged Rodney to help us with negotiation and, potentially, with the auction bidding, the whole process became controlled, and we were absolutely certain that we’re making exactly the right choices every time. In less than a week from our first chat with him, we exchanged contracts for a fantastic house well within our budget!

Rodney is the ultimate professional, extremely knowledgeable, calm and always responding straight to your queries, making you feel comfortable in negotiation process.

Based on our recent experience, we would not think of doing any other move in the property market without talking to him first.

Purchased 22 Palm Street St Ives

Buyers Agent Sydney

Purchased 22 Palm Street St Ives

 

Client Brief: Purchase a large family home on a substantial block of land in St Ives. Must be in a quiet street, suitable for young children.

 

Result:  Our client had missed out at auction 8 times before he engaged the services of Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents.

TBAS provided a detailed price guide analysis of the property, factoring in the price growth over the last few months and the limited supply of free-standing properties in the area.

Analysing the price guide quoted by the selling agent was on the low side, the auction was always going to attract fierce competition, TBAS was able to prepare and execute a winning bidding strategy that achieved an outstanding result for their client.

 

Price: $2,780,000

 

Testimonial: Before engaging Rodney McLoughlin  from TBAS Buyers Agent, I may have been at 8+ auctions and numerous house inspections on our quest to secure a house which lasted more than 13 months. It took me 8+ auctions to realise that bidding at auction is a skill especially when it comes to fiercely competitive Sydney’s real-estate on independent homes. Out of frustration I did some search on the internet and reached out to Rodney McLoughlin @ TBAS. From the onset the experience with Rodney is nothing but reassuring. He gave a reality check on the market and what it will take to win at the auction.

From the initial conversation, felt comfortable with Rodney. Over the course of few messages and calls, he helped in the auction preparation, provided key facts on selling agent tactics, did the research on real price guide, set a price goal and mainly put at our minds at ease on the max bid price.

On the auction day, his mindset, psychology and bidding tactics was a masterclass. Sincerely thank you Rodney for helping us secure our dream home.

Result:  Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents was engaged to offer independent advice and execute an auction bidding strategy for an on-site auction.

Purchased 17A Chelmsford Ave Botany

 

Client Brief: Purchase a large free-standing 4 bedroom home in the Eastern Suburbs with a pool for around $2,000,000

Result:  Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents was engaged to offer independent advice and execute an auction bidding strategy for an on-site auction. 

The auction had 5 registered bidders, but with a strategic first bid we managed to eliminate all but one of the bidders. Our fluent and aggressive bidding strategy eventually prevailed over the remaining bidder, securing the property $28,000 below the vendors reserve.

Our auction bidding strategy was only achievable due to the thorough research conducted prior to auction of comparable properties.

Testimonial: We contacted Rodney 2 days out from Auction for assistance on the day, because we had bad experiences at Auctions previously. I would highly recommend his service. His advice was excellent and his bidding strategy and read on the other bidders was spot on. Rodney was able to predict the reserve and let me know when the other bidder was nearly done. We secured the property for well below the reserve against another very eager bidder. I don’t think we would have been successful without his assistance. It was well worth the reasonable fee. Having Rodney there took a lot of the stress and uncertainty away and made the Auction more enjoyable.

Buyers Agent Eastern Suburbs

Purchased 8/1-7 Gloucester Place Kensington

 

Client Brief: Purchase a large 2 bedroom apartment with a courtyard or balcony for a dog. Also, must have a LUG suitable for a long vehicle.

Result:  After helping identify the perfect property, Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents completed extensive due diligence on the property and a comprehensive market analysis to ensure we could purchase the property below market value.

The property was scheduled for auction and with strong results for similar properties going to auction it was our goal to purchase pre-auction. With an in-depth knowledge of the area we were able to calculate a price that was below market value, but high enough to convince the vendors they should sell prior to auction, otherwise  risk losing the perfect buyer.

With everything in order prior to submitting our offer, we were in a position to successfully exchange contracts unconditionally within hours of having our offer accepted, well within our clients budget.

Testimonial: We engaged Rodney initially to bid for us at auction on a property, unfortunately it went 32% over the price guide 😂

However, Rodney was great in the lead up to the auction and was great on the day of.

After we were unsuccessful we decided to use Rodney’s full services to help us find our new home as her made us feel at ease and gave us much more confidence throughout the process.

He was very responsive to any questions at any time, and he came with us to inspections and asked the more difficult questions and also just had a lot of insight that only someone doing this for as long as him would have.

He compiled reports for us and handled 100% of the negotiation that helped us secure a home prior to auction… all after we decided to go ahead with it at 2pm on a Friday afternoon.

I never thought I’d be the person to use a buyers agent but I can say, hands down this was the best money we spent during our search for a home.

I would recommend Rodney to everyone looking for a new home and will definitely use him again the next time I go through this.

Client Brief: Purchase a quality freestanding home with at least 3 bedrooms, quiet street, high side of the road and within walking distance to the train station. The property must have substantial growth potential and be under $1,800,000

Result:  Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents was engaged to search and analyse properties in and around the Hurstville area. After a 6 week search we located a suitable property that was scheduled for auction. 

With a limited supply of quality free standing houses in Hurstville, it was our goal to purchase the property prior to auction and avoid getting into a bidding war with frustrated and emotional buyers.

After 3 days of negotiations and due diligence, we successfully secured the property $50,000 below our estimated budget for auction.

Price: $1,750,000

Testimonial: The best compliment for any business would be returning customers. My family and I would certainly be one of them, and would not hesitate recommending Rodney to our friends.

Rodney was calm, and professional throughout the purchase process. His knowledge and experience helped us secure a property within our budget, with high growth potential. We would not have done it without TBAS. Thank you!

Purchased – 39 Maxwell St Turramurra

Buyers Agent Sydney

Purchased -39 Maxwell St Turrmaurra

 

Client Brief: Purchase a small family home in Turrramurra with excellent capital gains potential around $1,800,000

Result:  Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents was engaged to offer independent advice and execute an auction bidding strategy for an on-site auction. 

With a limited supply of quality free standing houses in Turramurra around $1,8000,000, this property was always going to attract strong competition.

The auction had nine registered bidders, with three competing aggressively for the property around $1,8000,000. With a well prepared auction strategy leading up to the auction and a comprehensive price analysis on the property, Rodney’s clients where able to make an informed decision regarding the value of the property. This allowed for confident and aggressive bidding during the auction, resulting in a successful purchase for his clients, within their budget.

Testimonial: I engaged Rodney’s services quite late in the game. Literally days before the auction to purchase my dream home. Nerves were absolutely through the roof, but when I got off the phone with Rodney, a huge weight just lifted from my shoulders. Knowing he had a wealth of experience, and that he would represent me, gave me an immense sense of relief. On auction day, Rodney was confident, self assured and professional – and he got the job done. I got my ‘forever’ home within budget. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I would have lost the house if I’d bid myself. And I’m thankful that I was able to engage Rodney’s services at the eleventh hour. If you’re starting your property purchase journey, or even if you’re at the tail end of the process like I was, do yourself a favour and give Rodney a call.

Purchased – 74 Loch Maree St Maroubra

 

Client Brief: Freestanding house on the beach side of Maroubra in a quiet street that has potential to re-develop and add value. Land size over 400 square meters. Budget: $2,400,000

 

Result:  Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents Sydney was engaged to provide his expert knowledge of the Eastern Suburbs area and search for properties on & off the market in the Maroubra area. 

Due to the shortage of quality freestanding properties in the Maroubra area the search time was around 10 weeks to find the ideal property to re-develop and add value.  With strong interest in the property that was offered for the first time in over 50 years, Rodney managed to secure the house post auction, $50,000 below the vendors reserve.

 

Testimonial: Rodney is very cool, calm and collected. Communicates consistently, even throughout a drawn out buying process. It took a while for us to find a suitable property, but throughout the process his professionalism never waivered. An asset to any buyer.

Purchased – 10 Gibbes St Banksia

 

Client Brief: Our client wanted a freestanding home in close proximity to Sydney Airport, that was low maintenance and didn’t require renovations. Budget: Around $1,000,000

 

Result:  Tori Cheung from TBAS® Buyers Agents was engaged to offer independent advice and execute an auction bidding strategy for an on-site auction. 

The house was a renovated freestanding cottage, located in a quiet street and perfect to lock up and leave for travel.

Tori had enthusiastic competition during the auction, creating a stressful auction environment.  With a well planned and executed bidding strategy, Tori  was  able to secure the property below our clients budget, saving her client over $20,000.

Testimonial: Thanks to Rodney and Tori from TBAS for making the purchase of my first home a breeze.
I had the TBAS crew on site on auction day to walk me through the process, bid on my behalf within my predetermined budget and in the event of an unsuccessful auction, negotiate a fair price.
I was very grateful for the prompt, friendly and useful advice Rodney shared with me while I was circling the property, too.
Engaging TBAS saved money and time, provided intel and confidence and would probably circumvent emotional overspending – if you’re that way inclined.
As it turned out, it was a competitive, but pretty straightforward auction, which we won (and with change left over. Result! Nice one, Tori).

 

Price: $1,000,000

Should you Buy an Off-The-Plan or New Apartment?

Buyers Agent

Should you Buy an Off-The-Plan or New Apartment?

What you need to know before you sign a contract

 

Many buyers are cautious when it comes to buying a new, or off-the-plan, apartment.

 

Little wonder when newly built apartment blocks have been receiving attention for all the wrong reasons lately. Incidents such as Opal Tower, Mascot Towers and others, have put the spotlight firmly on the very real risks that can follow from making a bad buying call.

 

But despite the potential negatives, we think there are many reasons to be positive about buying off-the-plan apartments, as well as apartments less than 10 years old.

 

That is, of course, so long as you know what you’re doing.

 

Buyers Agent

 

Look beyond the glossy brochure

 

All new units look, well, new. So it’s often hard to tell the good from the not-so-good. Here, it’s important to look beyond the shiny new display apartment and glossy brochures.

The best way to do this is to restrict your search to well-constructed apartments from reputable developers with a good track record.

We regularly help clients carry out this kind of research before they sign on the dotted line to buy a new or off-the-plan unit. For example, we:

 

1. Compile and prepare detailed reports for buyers wanting to buy apartments less than 10 years old, including due diligence of the company and directors and any previous developments they’ve built.

2. Undertake a Fair Trading licence check to see if they have the appropriate licence and whether they’ve had any disciplinary action taken against them.

3. Scrutinise strata reports to check for any major capital works and to find out about any known defects, damage or the possibility of flammable cladding.

4. Get advice from mortgage brokers to see if certain areas are on a lender’s blacklist due to oversupply.

5. Guide our clients to think beyond the unit itself. An apartment’s value will always grow more over the long term if it’s in a location with lifestyle appeal and a growing population.

6. Make sure the price is right by checking comparable sales and negotiations.

.

What type of buyer does buying off the plan suit?

Thanks partly to recent laws, as well as favourable tax treatment, subsidies and other perks, there are several buyer groups who can benefit from buying off the plan or a newly built-property.

.

Foreign buyers

Under the current foreign investment rules, overseas buyers may have little choice but to purchase new or off-the-plan properties. As a group, foreign buyers include temporary residents, foreign residents and short-term visa holders from any country.

 

Before they can buy property in Australia, foreign buyers need to apply to the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB). Non-resident foreign buyers generally can’t buy established residential properties in Australia. Temporary residents are allowed to buy one established property, but only if it is their principal place of residence. In most other cases, foreign buyers are subject to additional taxes and restricted to buying new properties only.

 

This is all part of the government’s plan to create construction jobs, keep housing affordable and, of course, raise revenue.

.

First home buyers

First home buyers are another group the government actively encourages to buy new properties through stamp duty savings and the First Home Owner Grant.

 

In NSW, first home buyers can receive $10,000 towards buying a new property if it’s under $750,000. They also don’t have to pay any stamp duty on properties under $650,000 and get a reduced rate for properties under $800,000.  

 

The savings from this can be enormous. For instance, a first home buyer who bought a property for $650,000 would effectively get a subsidy of $26,857.

 

These financial incentives can act as a genuine motivator for first home buyers to get their foot on the property ladder with an off-the-plan property.

.

Investors

 Investors have the potential to access into the same negative gearing benefits on newly-built and off-the-plan properties that they get on established properties. But on top of this, they can also often claim depreciation. This is effectively the cost of ‘wear and tear’ on a property and can include building costs, such as brickworks or concrete, as well as plant and equipment costs, such as carpets, appliances, blinds and more.

 

Another great benefit of buying off-the-plan is that it can give an investor the potential for capital growth even before they actually buy the property. That’s because they get to lock in today’s prices even though they won’t settle on the property until some time in the future. Obviously, the reverse can potentially happen in a falling market and an investor can lose money when prices go down.

 

For investors to get the most out of buying a new property, they should always look to get the fundamentals right. This includes making sure it’s in a blue ribbon location, that the construction quality is high, that the property appeals to a wide range of tenants and that they pay a fair price for it.

.

Retirees and downsizers

Retirees and downsizers are increasingly starting to prize newly built and off-the-plan apartments for the genuine lifestyle benefits they can offer.

 

A brand-new home often comes with great modern amenities and added bells and whistles. This can include lifts, communal entertainment areas, a pool or a gym. New buildings are also typically well maintained, often have better natural light and, so long as they’re well constructed, usually won’t require as many repairs, renovations or upgrades as an older property might.

 

This can improve quality of life and reduce running costs.

.

Considering buying off the plan?

As you can see, there are definite advantages to buying a new apartment, so you shouldn’t ignore the idea just because newbuilds have received some recent bad publicity. But, at the same time, the added risks of buying new mean you should never go into it blind. You need to know all the facts before you sign on the dotted line.

 

We can help guide you through the buying process, making sure what you buy is a quality product that suits what you’re trying to achieve. More importantly, we can make sure you secure it at the best possible price.

Purchased Off Market – 17 Ryrie Ave Forestville

Buyers Agent Sydney

Purchased Off Market – 17 Ryrie Ave Forestville

 

Client Brief: Purchase a property in the Forestville area with future growth potential on a large block to build a granny flat under $1,700,000

 

Result: With the real estate market in Sydney rising approximately 4% over the last two months and a chronic shortage of stock, finding properties that tick all the boxers below market value has become challenging to say the least.

After a gruelling search for several months we manged to secure a property off market that ticked most of our clients boxers below their price expectations, beating several other buyers to the contract exchange.

 

Price: Withheld

 

Testimonial: We initially contacted Rodney to bid on our behalf at an auction we couldn’t attend and later upgraded to his advice & negotiation service. He came to our first meeting (on a Sunday!) having done his research on the property and area we were interested in buying. We’ve been really happy with the support, the practical advice and the level of service that Rodney has given us during our search for a property. He’s also incredibly responsive – I don’t think any of my calls went to voicemail once. I couldn’t recommend Rodney’s services enough!

Purchased – 35 Rushton Dr Kanahooka

Buyers Agent Sydney

Purchased – 35 Rushton Dr Kanahooka

 

Client Brief: Purchase a waterfront reserve property suitable for a family of 5 south of Sydney for under $1,000,000

 

Result: After analysing 35 Rushton Dr Kanahooka and establishing a reasonable  purchase price, Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents secured the prime waterfront reserve property on behalf of his clients under their budget, during a competitive on-site auction with spirited bidding.

 

Price: $900,000

 

Testimonial: My husband and I were visiting our son and his wife and family in Wollongong and went to an Open Inspection with them. They had been looking for nearly 8 months – most homes on the market either did not suit their needs or were not up to scratch or they missed out, at auction. Finally, this home, we all agreed, at first sight, was THE ONE. It was a waterfront dream home.

The day before the auction we googled on how to bid at an auction. To our great fortune we stumbled upon the Buyer’s Agency and read about Rodney and his services. Since we were so nervous and stressed about the auction, and did not want to miss out, we thought we could do with some professional help. So we rang Rodney , who sounded so courteous, calm, quietly confident and reassuring. His fees were reasonable too. And he was willing to drive down from Sydney to Wollongong at such short notice. Rodney gave us realistic feedback and pricing on the property and his strategy on the day. There were 5 bidders, all very spirited and competitive. It was a very nail biting experience but Rodney remained calm throughout and got it for us!!!!

Rodney you were spot on about the property. There is no doubt this would not have happened if not for you. Thank you so much. We would highly recommend you to anyone wishing to buy a property. We all are still so excited about this dream home. Thank you.
Vilma and Frank

Interior:  Poor

Exterior: Poor

Price: Reasonable

General: 

The property is in extremely poor condition and is located on a battle-axe block. Furthermore, there is a covenant in place preventing another level, which restricts development opportunities.

However, per square meter this is probably the cheapest free-standing property in Bellevue Hill, at $5,161, but it comes with warts and all...

Having said that, it does provide a good opportunity to break into the Bellevue Hill Real Estate market.

5 Tips for Auction Success

Auction Bidding Service

5 Tips for Auction Success

How to win at Auction

Worried about bidding at a property auction? You’re not alone. Auctions can be extremely daunting if you don't know what you're doing or have arrived unprepared.

Auction Bidding Service

There are many auction strategies you can employ – from starting low and keeping on bidding to placing your best and final bid first. Here are five expert tips, from our years of experience attending thousands of auctions, to help you buy the property of your dreams.

 

 

Tip 1: Know the real price guide  

Something many buyers don’t realise is that the reserve price can be whatever the vendor decides on the morning of the auction, regardless of the price range supplied by the property’s real estate agents. Moreover, agents often underquote the indicative price range (then increase it gradually through the auction campaign) to get more prospective buyers through the door and create a greater illusion of competition. Don’t waste precious time and money on building and pest inspections, strata searches and contract reviews if a property isn’t actually in your price range. By doing thorough market research in advance you can also avoid bidding over and above what you should. In the weeks leading up to the auction be sure to find out everything you can about the values of similar property types in that location and set a bidding limit that is realistic and in line with current market values.

 

Tip 2: Get the inside scoop 

The key to not overpaying is being certain of the likely selling price going in. TBAS® Buyers Agents have analysed the data from thousands of auctions to establish reliable probable selling prices. We know the average number of bids, average number of bidders and, most importantly, the percentage over the agent’s price guide properties sell for and so we can make sure you have the information you need going in. 

 

Tip 3: Do your due diligence

While it can seem like a waste of money to pay for building and pest inspections if you don’t end up buying a property this is not the place to cut corners. Given the major investment your property will represent, such costs are a drop in the bucket that can save you from financial ruin if it turns out that the property has a major flaw. Make sure that your inspection is done by a reliable building inspector with good credentials and reviews and that their report covers pests, water damage, foundations and electrical work. If buying a unit, obtaining a strata report is essential. Your solicitor or conveyancer should also make enquiries to find out if there are any submitted or approved development applications in the area or any major infrastructure developments in the works. Your research should extend to checking out the area’s history, doing a walk through at different times of day and night to check things such as noise levels, and talking to the neighbours.

 

Tip 4: Take emotion out of the equation

 Let’s face it - emotion and drama is what makes an auction so entertaining. But the single biggest reason most people overpay at auction is emotion. Frequently, they’ve gotten their heart set on their “dream home” and logic flies out of the window in the heat of the moment when they fear losing it. Real estate agents know how to play on these emotions and get people bidding. A good buyer’s agent will insulate you from high pressure selling agents. They will be able to provide detailed information and data to support the potential sale price and will ensure you stick to your budget and not pay over the odds. Auctions are extremely stressful and emotional, so it’s important to have someone representing you who is not emotionally attached to the property.

 

Tip 5: Get expert representation  

If you are planning on buying at auction, you should have a professional representing you on the day. Remember that the vendors have a selling agent representing their best interests and advising them every step of the way. If you don’t, you’re not on a level playing field. A professional buyer’s agent will prepare and execute a bidding strategy that's tailored for the property you are buying and have the experience to alter the strategy if required. If the property is passed in, they will be instrumental in the negotiations post auction.

 

An expert buyer’s agent can guide you through the auction process with ease. Contact us for your road map to auction success.

Purchased – 210/2 Malthouse Way Summer Hill

 

Client Brief: Our client, who was a First Home Buyer was looking for a large new or near new apartment approximately 80-100 square meters, close to public transport for an easy commute from the inner west to the CBD, with a budget of $860,000

Result: After searching for six months and missing out on properties they thought were in their price range at auction, they engaged our services.  Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS® Buyers Agents were able to secure exactly what they were looking for within four weeks. Great result for their client.

Price: $860,000

 

Testimonial

“Rodney was amazing to work with, start to finish. Auctions, finance, negotiations. I unfortunately hit a hurdle, my finance fell through (I had pre-approval, nothing to do with credit but location risk), every first home buyers nightmare. Rodney stepped in and made what would normally be a (an incredibly) stressful situation a normal every day hurdle. He went over and above and made the process streamlined. Hands down one of the best investments I have ever made- other than my dream home that he helped me secure.”

Purchased – 19 Anglesea St Bondi

 

Client Brief: Our clients were looking for a large renovated 4 bedroom free-standing house with internal double parking, pool or room for a pool, within a short drive to Scots College & Ascham school under $4,000,000

 

Result: With limited stock available for free standing houses close to Scots college under $4,000,000, the brief was always going to be challenging. However after a 4 week search we were able to secure 19 Anglesea St Bondi prior to auction after 2 weeks on the market well below our clients budget.

 

Price: $3,850,000

 

Testimonial: I would strongly recommend using TBAS. As a first time buyers in a new country Rodney’s insights into the local Eastern Suburbs housing market were invaluable. We needed to understand the local price point and amount of stock for 4 to 5 bedroom houses coming onto the market in close proximity to our children’s schools. Rodney went above and beyond. He showed us in excess of 20 properties at varying prices over the next several months before we were even ready to buy, not to mention being available for phone calls day and night. We were ready to buy from the beginning of July. Rodney had found, successfully offered and secured our new house by the beginning of August. The house was completely on brief as well (a detached 5 bed room house, in close proximity to our children’s schools with a large garden and enough room to include a pool at some stage). This was all well within our budget.

Also, the frontage is only 13 meters wide.

Any approvals for multiple dwellings may be subject to lengthy councils approvals. However, due to its location and size it is a great long term investment.

The Rise and Rise of the Buyer’s Agent

Auction Bidding Service

More Buyers are Securing a Professional Advantage!

 

Long popular in the United States, buyer’s agents are becoming increasingly popular in Australia too, as more buyers see what tremendous value there is in having a knowledgeable professional acting and advocating for them. Here’s what to know and what to look for.

Buyers Agent Sydney

 

A decade ago there were only a few buyer’s agents operating in Sydney and they were largely considered (rightly or wrongly) the domain of the wealthy. Today, more and more buyer’s agents are popping up in Sydney and elsewhere, as buyers at all price points cotton on the huge benefits using one can achieve.  

 

Not just for the wealthy

There’s a common misperception that only well-off people use buyer’s agents but this is simply not the case. Buying a property is a huge investment and getting it wrong can be costly. Investing in a professional property buyer, who knows the market inside out and has an extensive network of contacts and a wealth of knowledge to draw upon, will almost certainly save money, even when their fees are factored in. It’s also the most likely way to secure your dream home or investment property in a competitive market.

 

Getting it right

It’s important to remember that good property investment isn’t only about saving money or securing a ‘bargain’, however, but about getting the right property, at the right price, at the right time – for your unique needs. A good buyer’s agent will consult with you extensively to figure out what you hope to achieve and will have the experience and market knowledge to find the property – or properties – that ticks all the right boxes.

 

Why use a buyer’s agent?

Buying a property can be an incredibly time consuming and stressful experience. With so much at stake it’s easy for the novice to miss important details that could have huge consequences later. An experienced buyer’s agent can transform the process into a seamless, stress-free one, and achieve a far better result. They may know about off-market properties that are unique or in need of a fast sale, for example. What’s more, a great buyer’s agent will go above and beyond the one real estate transaction, guiding you to figure out your long-term property-related goals and strategy.

 

On the auction block

Televisions shows like The Block and Location, Location, Location have played a role in the rising popularity of buyer’s agents, by showing them in action at auctions, highlighting their value as audiences witness the results they can achieve.

 

The auction process itself can be fraught with pitfalls. Most people will only buy at auction a small handful of times, if that, in their lives. A buyer’s agent, who has done it dozens or even hundreds of times, knows all of the traps and has a multitude of strategies to put in place for success. They’re also emotionally detached – they are simply there to achieve the best outcome for their client – and that in itself can avoid many common mistakes, particularly those made by first-time buyers.

 

What to look for in a buyer’s agent


With more buyer’s agents popping up all the time, it’s important to make sure that you’re engaging a true professional with a proven track record. They should have several years’ experience – at a minimum – in the specific area that you want to buy. Check that they are appropriately licensed and insured with the relevant professional qualifications and ask about their most recent purchases and reviews. They should ideally also be a member of the Real Estate Institute in your state or territory.

Property Report by CoreLogic: 50 Fairfax Rd Bellevue Hill

NOTE: The RP Data Property Report produced by CoreLogic is inaccurate. Contact Rodney McLoughlin for an accurate price range.

Comments: Located in one of the better pockets of Bellevue Hill, near ‘Rona’ (recently sold for $58m), The Scots College & Cranbrook school.

Situated on a large block with good views, the house has plenty of accommodation, although the floor plan needs a good Architect to open it up.

The bathrooms and kitchen are are due for a complete makeover.

The steep private driveway may take a little bit of getting use to.

The price guide has taken into consideration the negative aspects of the property, as it is well priced for a property in this location & land size.

The backyard and pool area lack privacy and needs to be addressed.

realestate.com.au url: https://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-nsw-rose+bay-130956690

Property Report by CoreLogic: 2 Beresford Rd Rose Bay

Comments: Boasting an impressive 883m2 completely level block, with a 17m frontage, meaning it may have subdivision potential (STCA) and within a 50m stroll to Rose Bay Harbour. 

Bathrooms, laundry & kitchen need a makeover to justify the $8,000,000 price guide if you weren’t planning on/ or could subdivide. 

The value of the property is the ability to subdivide the block, considering the house needs a good make over.

realestate.com.au url: https://www.realestate.com.au/property-unitblock-nsw-bondi+junction-130798398

Property Report by CoreLogic: 12 Botany St Bondi Junction

Comments: The property has been converted into a legal boarding house with 5 separate bedrooms & kitchenette’s. It is in a very average condition and needs updating to increase the current rents. There is potential to add another floor STCA or potentially purchase the adjoining terrace.

If you could purchase the property under the agents price guide, it would be a great long term investment.

Recent sale: 10 Botany St, the adjoining terrace sold for $2,600,00 on the 25 September 2015. Same block size, however it had an additional flat attached at the rear
