DO YOU WANT TO MAKE AN INFORMED PURCHASING DECISION?

Can I buy a property without the help and assistance from a buyer’s agent? That’s one of the decisions you’ll have to make when you begin the property-buying process. A buyer’s agent can certainly help you find that perfect property and negotiate with the selling agent or owner for the best price and conditions. But, it's important to note that many people have bought their homes or investment properties without the help of buying agent especially due to the plethora of on-line real estate tools and on-line websites making this buying process even more convenient… But has this ‘plethora of on-line convenience been a good thing or has it actually made the buying process much more difficult ...

Three (3) steps for successful pre-auction negotiations are...

You’ve just seen a property which you are extremely interested in and want to buy it because it ticks all the boxes (suits most of your requirements).  However, you do have one very major issue worrying you, that is you’re not so keen or confident in buying this property at auction due to the stress, anxiety and confusion that you know will cause you. So what do you do? How do you know that you won’t end up overpaying at auction due to buyer competition.  So whe...

YAPS: For the Buyer

Buyer's agents must be licensed real estate agents by law. The major difference between a buyer’s agent and a seller's agent is that a buyer's agent is always working exclusively on behalf of a buyer only whereas a seller’s agent is working on behalf of a seller but is also working with the buyer in order to close a sale.  In some circumstances this may cause a conflict of interest to occur (especially if the selling agent isn’t ethical). Zac Newbold from Your Australian Property Solutions (YAPS) says that he always tries to help home buyers or investors just as a business consultant would assist a corporation. "Buyers can make the emotional decision of whether they like the house or don't like the house," says Zac Newbold. "But t...

PAYING THE RIGHT PRICE AND WHY IT’S SO IMPORTANT!

There’s nothing worse for a mortgage broker than telling their client that unfortunately the property they have just purchased isn’t worth the price they paid for it, and in fact,  has been valued significantly lower than the purchase price… The following demonstrates why this can be so devastating for purchasers who unfortunately find themselves in this situation. A couple purchases an investment property, without professional assistance,  over the weekend thinking that they purchased a really good property for a good price.  First thing on Monday morning they contact their mortgage broker (having already been pre-approved for their loan) to advise  they have just purchased a property.  Obviously, at that point in time the purchaser and the mortgage broker are both excite...

Paid Property Advice versus Free Property Advice

Remember that the best property advice you can possibly receive when buying a property is advice that you pay a fee for service for.  Advice that you freely receive from people (i.e. real estate salespeople, property marketers or non-property advisors) you really need to question what that person's real motivation is... Free advice is usually deemed as questionable, and can end up costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars in capital losses, over payment of tax or lost opportunities. Paid property advice is accountable to the client. Whereas, free property advice comes with little or no responsibility or accountability  from the person giving  advice. Paid property advice is independent and objective. Free property advice is often biased, subjective and self-serving. Paid ...

How the past can determine future outcomes…

1. Why won’t agents’ divulge the past sales history of a property they are selling to potential purchasers? Simple – the past sales history results may indicate very poor growth so they agent doesn’t want to jeopardise the sale. 2. 99.99% of people that purchase a property don’t even know what the sales history of that property is, nor do they even think it is useful information to have. The reason for this major oversight is that most people only look at the “NOW”. 3. The fact is that knowing what the past sales history of a property is, gives a good reliable indication to the likely capital growth in future years will be. Also, it can be quite useful in terms of what buying tactics to use as you know exactly what current owner’s paid for the property. 4. Analysin...

YOUR AUSTRALIAN PROPERTY SOLUTIONS: TOTALLY INDEPENDENT & TRANSPARENT

Unfortunately, there are a number of unlicensed property marketing firms out there at present promoting particular properties (usually off the plan or brand new) offering long-term high capital growth potential. To put things into perspective, these firms are merely selling a product. So whatever information you are being told about these properties is based on lies and vested interests rather than the truth!  So you really need to be very careful... Interestingly, how can someone suggest that a new property will achieve long-term high capital growth when in fact there isn’t any past sales history or past track record defies logic...Why do they do this? It's because they are pushing a prod...

The Untold Truths About Buying Off-the-plan Properties…

At Your Australian Property Solutions (YAPS) we usually recommend our clients purchase property that provides high capital growth, or rental income, depending on your requirements.  Also many of our clients are looking for a principal place of residence. This can also represent a capital growth investment as it's important to acquire property that  appreciates in value.  This assists  in building wealth. We almost always buy in well established areas (usually within 15-20 km from the Melbourne CBD) which are either blue chip or have great infrastructure and amenities. We very rarely recommend buying off the plan or in remote areas for these reasons: 1. So-called stamp duty savings c...

Your Australian Property Solutions (YAPS) : Making a difference…

We saw that other so-called ‘buyers advocacy’ firms were not necessarily getting the best property for their clients, but simply chasing a deal.

I wanted to provide a transparent, objective client-focused service that ONLY does deals on properties that are the best for the client, both now and in terms of future long-term capital growth potential.
