Home Buyer Case Study

The Brief

To find and secure a 4 bedroom home with a suitable layout for young family and with a separate home office. Ideally similar to current rental property

Our Comments

The opportunity to purchase this property was created through proactively contacting the owner direct to see if they would be willing to sell, with the clients already knowing the property very well. Fortunately in this instance the vendors were interested and were open to selling after a lot of research and astute negotiation. At last a really great and well deserved result for a lovely family who had missed out numerous times prior.
