Property Investment Melbourne

The smartest way to invest in property

 

Property investment is seen as one of the fastest ways to grow your wealth in Australia. But buying property is likely to be one of the most expensive and time consuming processes in your life. It can take an extraordinary amount of time, money and stress. And unfortunately it can be an easy one to get wrong. A poor choice or listening to poor advice could cost you thousands.

This graph depicts the impact of different capital growth rates over 10 years. A small difference can make a big change over the life of your property ownership!

For example, and lets be conservative. A property purchased for $500,000 today that performs at 5% per annum would be worth approximately $814,000 in 10 years. However, another property purchased at the same amount that peforms at 7% per annum (2% more) would be worth around $983,000 in 10 years. That 2% difference for the same purchase price just netted you $169,000 more in growth!

5 Star Google Review

“My wife and I were looking to purchase an investment property in late 2012. A mortgage broker recommended National Property Buyers. It was then we met Antony Bucello, a buyer advocate for NPB….

Read more

We realised immediately that we were going to be in good hands! From the very beginning Antony made us feel welcome; “call me Ant, all my friends do” he said.

Ant asked us to think about the type of property that we were looking for, explained the costs involved, the benefits of using NPB, what to look for in a property, strategies when wanting to make an offer on a property and so forth. Once Ant had an idea on the type of property we were looking for he went to work. We looked at several properties, had reports on each of them, discussed what we liked and disliked.

After several property inspections we came upon a townhouse in Pascoe Vale. We loved it—it had everything that we wanted in an investment property. Ant organised personal and routine inspections. He then discussed our strategy in making an offer. The outcome was that we bought the property and only $1K off Ant’s opinion!

After 5 years of ownership we decided to renovate our Sydney property – so we needed to sell our investment property. We were sad to sell as it was a terrific investment property. This time we used Ant as our seller advocate. We sold our property in Pascoe Vale for a great price—more than we had ever hoped for!

To the team at NPB—thank you so much for being a part of our investment journey! You definitely made this experience a rewarding and profitable one! The fee that NPB charge for their services was such a good investment in itself as it saved us a lot on the purchase and made us more in the selling! We would have no hesitation in recommending Antony Bucello and the team at NBP to anyone looking to purchase an investment property!”

Letter

National Property Buyers provided a successful journey and outcome in buying an investment property. NPB were super helpful, patient and always on top of the market and what my specific requirements were….

With Brenton’s help I was able to purchase a property that checks off what I was looking for in an investment property. It made an innately stressful process far less stressful having the market filtered down to what would interest me, be in my target price range and myself only having to inspect properties or attend auctions which were worth my time. Thanks a lot!

Our Fees

We offer a transparent, competitive “fee for service” pricing structure according to the service you require. The relevant pricing structure will be documented clearly in a signed engagement authority before any work is undertaken.  Below is an indication of our standard fees please contact us to discuss your individual needs.

Full Premium Service

1.5% to 2% (+GST)

of the purchase price

Our full service (search, assess and negotiate) includes; regular searching , sourcing off-market properties, unlimited inspections, full independent assessment reports and negotiating the successful purchase. We keep working until your ideal property has been purchased!

Generally, this service is between 1.5 and 2% (+GST) of the purchase price. This fee is made up of an initial engagement fee of $2,000. The remaining balance is paid on success, when we have secured your property (called the ‘success fee’). This means the engagement fee is part of the total fee and not in addition.

We also offer a ‘fixed fee’ option.

Assess & Negotiate

0.75% to 1% (+GST)

of the purchase price

The assess and negotiate service is suitable if you’d like to do the property search yourself or have already found the property you would like to buy.

We inspect the property and prepare a detailed property report and price analysis and negotiate the purchase on your behalf.

Generally, this service is between 0.75 and 1% (+GST) of the purchase price.

This fee is made up of an initial engagement fee of $1,000 +GST, with the remaining balance paid on successfully securing your property (called the ‘success fee’).

We also have a ‘fixed fee’ option.

Auction Bidding

starting at $500 (+GST)

 

This service is for those who are uncomfortable with the auction environment and  bidding process or are simply not going to be available on the day of the auction.

Auction bidding fees are generally fixed upfront and an engagement fee is payable in advance of auction day.

The initial engagement fee is between $500 and $1000 +GST. And only upon securing the property is the success fee paid. Generally this is between $500 and $1000 depending on requirements.

This means it could be as little as $500 to have an expert represent you on the day.

The Secret Sauce

When selecting a Buyer’s Agent, you are entrusting them with (one of) your biggest financial investments, you need to know they are working as hard as possible for you.

We believe statistics alone don’t give you the information you need to make a good purchase. They are only one aspect – past performance, predicted growth, rental yields, median house prices are all important but actively knowing the market you work in is crucial!

What is the reputations of local schools, plans for new infrastructure, real travel times, whether the suburb is over saturated with similar property, the type of tenants that particular suburbs attract are just a few of the considerations we factor in. You want your Buyer Agent physically viewing the property themselves. And not just the property, the street and surrounds. You want them having relationships with local sales agents, allowing them acces to pre-listing or off market properties. You want them being honest with you and recommending against a property purchase even if the figures add up, but maybe the property isn’t matched as well to you as it could be.

And how do we identify the right property for you? We call it “The Secret Sauce”. The 3 P’s. Property. Position. Price.

Each criteria is linked with one another and depending on your individual requirements weighted differently. Once we ascertain your requirements the search (or assessment) can commence utilising our selection criteria for identifying investment ‘grade’ properties. We have identified some of our key selection criteria which we evaluate properties against in an addition to a hole host of other items.
