Property Journey:

The client was a very busy corporate who had been referred to Cohen Handler after putting off her investment search. She was in a great position to invest in property as a means of building her portfolio and accumulating wealth but didn’t want to just buy just any property and had hesitated each time. The client had came to Cohen Handler with a budget sub $1m but didn’t know what her money could secure her, what returns to expect and where best to invest for capital growth.

Understanding a clients requirements is much more than number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The client was investing to build her portfolio and extract equity in order to put herself in a better position to finance the future primary residence. In order to meet her overall objectives, our focus was either an Inner City/East apartment or something special like a townhouse or villa in Sydney’s Inner West. The sub $1m market is extremely competitive.

Leveraging your options combined with timing and efficiency is key to buying well. Within 4 weeks of familiarising the client with the market, we negotiated and secured a boutique 2 bed, 1 bath, 1 parking townhouse in Lilyfield for $920,000 pre-auction. The client did not think she could get out of the apartment sector in this range for this area and is ecstatic to built her equity for the next one.
