The search time for this client was 3 months. They were a first home buyer and wanted to secure a property prior to Christmas. Our Melbourne buyer advocates had assessed over 30 properties in different suburbs, and we inspected 6 properties in Reservoir and Heidelberg West combined prior to purchasing the right property in Fawkner. The selected property was scheduled to go to auction early in the following year, however we arranged with the listing agent to inspect the property prior to the auction campaign. We ended up securing the property on Christmas Eve for our client prior to auction. We have achieved a rental return of 4.56% which is very strong for Melbourne.
