DO YOU WANT TOTAL CONFIDENCE THAT YOU’RE BUYING A GOOD PROPERTY FOR THE BEST PRICE -AND EXTRA HELP TO SEAL THE DEAL?
You’re ready to buy a home or investment property and you feel like buying property should be easy because anyone can do it, right?
But, for some reason, you’ve been looking at properties and not finding or winning the ones that you want.
You’ve probably also bid or negotiated on a few properties already and lost them all.
This time, you’ve found the one you really have your heart set on and you don’t want to risk missing out on this one too.
The auction day heartbreak is just way too much to go through again.
But there’s also a part of you that feels uncertain about whether the property is a good one or if you’ve missed something.
Am I about to buy a lemon?
The thought of overlooking something is a niggling thought in the back of your mind. Because making a mistake when it comes to property is an expensive mistake and you’re especially concerned that you’re going to overpay for your property.
Now you can have total confidence that you are buying a good, solid property, at the right price.
If it would feel like a relief to have an expert look over your chosen property, give you an accurate assessment on price & take care of all the negotiations for you, then we’d like to invite you to work with us.
We’ll help you understand whether your chosen property is so good that you should give it everything you’ve got to secure it, or whether something better will come along soon.
It’s our job to take away the stress, guesswork, questioning & wondering.
If you’re a homebuyer who has missed out on a bunch of properties already, it’s our goal to stop you experiencing the grief & heartache that comes from missing out on your dream property.
If you’re an investor or out of area buyer, you don’t have to rely on photos on the internet, a friend that doesn’t know what they’re doing, or a biased real estate agent who is on the seller’s side. Our goal is to give you the clarity & confidence that only comes from working with a local professional who understands the local market & gives you accurate, unbiased advice.
You’ll have total confidence that you’re buying a good, solid home or investment.
When you work with us, you won’t just buy any home. It’ll be the home that you really want at a price you can afford. PLUS you won’t ever have to deal with another selling agent ever again.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
We spend 10 minutes on the phone together to get to know where you’re at in your home buying journey, what challenges you’re facing in the process and whether this is the right service for you.
If you qualify for the service you will sign the service authority, power of attorney and pay the service fee.
We’ll get together on the phone or in person to confirm all the important details for your chosen property.
We’ll also clarify want to do with the property, discuss any concerns you have about the property and whether you’re considering renovations. We’ll keep that information in mind when doing the inspection
Using our comprehensive 200-point checklist to thoroughly inspect the property and make sure nothing is missed, so that we can give you an accurate assessment of the property.
We’ll take photos so that, if there’s anything we need to discuss, we have a visual reference so that it’s easy for you to understand the key issues.
A core part of our negotiation strategy is knowing how the sales campaign is tracking. We’ll interview the sales agent to understand how much competition there is on your chosen property and the vendor’s readiness to sell.
This will help us find opportunities to save you money or help you avoid missing out on the property if there’s strong competition.
You’ll get a custom report that outlines:
- Land size
- Local property market
- Buyer demographic
- Calibre of renovation
- Recent comparable sales
- Vendors circumstances
- Development opportunities
- Availability of similar properties
- Quoted price
Interest in a property can rapidly change and that affects the seller’s price expectations, so we’ll also continue tracking the sales campaign until the property is sold.
NEGOTIATE OR BID
We’ll get on the phone to discuss our negotiating strategy. There’s so many things that we consider when approaching the negotiations. But you won’t need to worry about any of that because we’ve got you covered.
If the property is going to auction. We will attend the auction on your behalf & bid up to our agreed limit.
Once the offer has been accepted, or we have won the property at auction, we get all the paperwork worked up & send you the final contract to sign or we can sign on your behalf, if needed. The only thing that’s left is a phone call from us to celebrate that the home is now yours. (We hope you have that bottle of Champagne chilled!)
Your last job is to crack the bottle or champagne open and toast to your success!
SOUNDS GREAT! BUT IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
The Inspect, Value & Buy service is perfect for you if:
- You’ve chosen a property that you really like, but you want to make sure that you haven’t missed anything that would mean buying the property is a big mistake.
- You don’t want to overpay for the property and want a second opinion from a professional to ensure you get your pricing right.
- You’re afraid that you’ll miss out on a property that you really love. You may have lost other properties that you were interested in and you don’t want to lose this one too.
- You don’t want to do the bidding or negotiation yourself and/or want to avoid dealing with the sales agent.
- You have a property in mind, but you don’t live locally or you’ll be out of the area on the day of the auction or price negotiations. You want someone with local knowledge to inspect the house on your behalf.

Is the property I want realistic for my budget?
It’s our job to help you refine and prioritise your wish list and navigate the options so you end up in the right area in a home you will love at a price you can afford.
You can rely on us to be candid if you’re on the wrong track or have unrealistic expectations. In fact, we only take on clients who have a willingness to be realistic and turn away those who won’t budge on their wish list, even if their budget will not afford it. It would just be a waste of everyone’s time and your money if your dream home didn’t actually exist.
