Overview:

Client engaged Brooke to help him purchase a 2 bedroom apartment on the Lower North Shore with a budget of up to $850,000.

Challenge:

Soon into the search our client changed his brief to the Eastern Suburbs which proved to be impossible unless he broadened his areas. Whilst searching for another client in a lower price bracket Brooke came across an 82 sqm 1 bedroom unit that oozed potential. The unit fitted all our client’s needs with the exception of the bedrooms so Brooke quickly acted and pushed to buy prior to auction.

Solution:

After completing due diligence an offer was made in the way of a closed bid to the agent. Knowing that her price research was concise, Brooke insisted the client increase his offer prior to submission by $2000. Thankfully he did and the property was purchased at $200 more than the next highest bidder. Our client is currently redesigning the apartment, making it into 2 bedrooms with a brand new kitchen and bathroom all within his original budget. Another unit 3 floors up with an identical floor plan to the redesign recently sold for $1,195,000. Great buying!
