Money so well spent!

published

When a friend recommended I use a Buyer's Advocate to help purchase my property, I wondered just what they would add. Now I know! I worked with Claire at Ian Reid's to help secure a property I really wanted to buy. Her pre-planning and report were so helpful and her advice spot on. Then on the day of the auction, which ended up being on Zoom, she was amazing. Let's just say I'm glad she was working for me and not against me. Claire's determination just blew the other bidders out of the water and I ended up getting the property for less than I was willing to pay! A win all round.

First Class Service and a Sales result to Match

published

Nicole with her expertise, attention to detail and warm & friendly manner made the sales process of my home very easy and stress free for me . After reviewing the Agents submissions organised by Nicole, I selected a Sales Agent and my home was sold in 4 days!
This is the second time I have appointed Nicole in selling a home, in both cases the service and sales result was first class!
I highly recommend Nicole and Ian Reid Buyer & Vendor Advocates.

After being out of the property market for a number of years it was reassuring to have an experienced person, namely Cameron, guide me from day one through to the successful sale of my home. Passionately involved my Cameron steered the sales effort. He gave current advice regarding the preparation of the home for sale, selection of agent, the marketing campaign, and negotiations with prospective buyers. Not only did he make himself available for contact at anytime, he kept in contact with regular progress reports. Thank you Cameron.

Cameron treated the sale of our property as if it were his own. Courteous, professional and highly knowledgeable in his craft, he got us a great result with a minimum of fuss. Cameron kept us in the loop during what turned out to be a stress-free process. Beyond choosing a real estate agent (one of two he recommended), we had no other estate agent interactions.
Highly recommend.

This was a fantastic result, well done to the Ian Reid team

published

This was an excellent result by Cameron Parker of the Ian Reid team. He put out a figure that we could get for the sale of our home and he smashed it. He was personable and available all throughout the campaign and kept us in the loop with all the inspection figures and how we were tracking against the market. We couldn't have expected a better campaign and outcome. Well done Cameron.

Professional and efficient service

published

Utilising the services of Ian Reid Vendor Advocates was the first and best decision we made when deciding to sell. Michael Collins provided experienced and invaluable advice and guidance throughout the process. While working full-time this provided us a welcome, low stress 'project manager' to guide our decision making - made the whole process proceed without a hitch. Very experienced and provided sound advice and strategy right through the auction and beyond. Will recommend to all our friends and family.

Questions & Answers

Gary Casked

HI Ian do 1st home buyers only need 5% deposit on purchase , or is it 10% for everybody ?

1 answer
Ian Reid Buyer & Vendor Advocates
Ian Reid Vendor A.Ian Reid Buyer & Vendor Advocates

Hi Gary,
The First Home Loan Deposit Scheme allows 10,000 first home buyers to apply for government assistance to purchase a property with as little as a five per cent deposit and without the need to take out lenders mortgage insurance (LMI). You will need to speak to your bank or mortgage broker about how to apply for this and the criteria attached. Under normal circumstances, First Home Buyers would need to save a minimum of 10% deposit in order to qualify for a home loan, however everyones situation is different so we advise to speak with a mortgage broker. If you would like a recommendation for someone we would be happy to help.

Hello Ian, an unusual situation. Our home sold via auction 5 weeks ago. Two weeks ago we followed the Govt advice are living in lockdown. To explain my family are not leaving the house or yard & I leave twice weekly to do shopping. On Wednesday the Agent advised the purchaser's bank wish to send a valuer through the house and a kerbside valuation is not sufficient. At this stage we have said no. Where do we stand?

1 answer
Ian Reid Buyer & Vendor Advocates
Ian Reid Vendor A.Ian Reid Buyer & Vendor Advocates

Hi Stephen,
These certainly are unusual times. If you sold your property by auction, or within 3 days before or after the auction date and there were no special conditions added to the contract, then your sale is completely unconditional. It is not subject to the purchasers financial approval and therefore you are well within your rights to deny access to the buyer for any reason other than one final inspection. This final inspection normally happens within a couple of weeks of settlement. In case there are any specific circumstances that we are not aware of, we suggest you run this by the solicitor who prepared the Contract of Sale and follow their advice. Otherwise stay safe and we wish you all the best.
