|If you’re in the real estate investment game, you need to be aware of the sharks. They’re everywhere, and most of them see you coming from miles away. I spoke to Andrew Crossley from the Australian Property Advisory Group on my radio program last week.
Andrew explained to me listeners that most spruikers in the property industry receive huge undisclosed commissions, and operate unethically. They represent the seller or developer. A Stockholm syndrome exists, people think they must deal with these spruikers to buy a new home, this is not true. There is a better more ethical way. A way to reduce risk and source a property more suited to an individual’s circumstance, and when purchasing a property you should always ensure that you always deal with someone who: Represents you as the buyer, not the seller; is insured and qualified to provide advice; has disclosed all commissions and fees and takes into account your needs, financial situation, goals and risk appetite.
Julie Cuming from Hatch Property is a client of mine and I should disclose that straight up, but we’ve also done business with her. The experience was first class. This is about trust and integrity. I’ll recommend Hatch Property Australia till the cows come home because I know that whoever I send in Julie’s direction will experience a happy ending.
That’s why I feel compelled to share that Julie at Hatch has a small number of excellent quality investment opportunities right now that you should consider if you’re in the market.
Brisbane is regarded as the market most able to deliver sound growth and yield outcomes at this stage of the property cycle. Julie has carefully handpicked opportunities that she believes will deliver outstanding results for. Hatch tends to focus on boutique opportunities that are predominately aimed at the owner occupier market to give their investors the greatest potential for a positive financial outcome while holding the property and when they come to sell.
These opportunities are limited and will not last.
