We Can Help With..

Renting

Renting a property comes with many of the same difficulties as buying one, and finding the right rental property for can be an extremely time consuming and frustrating task. However, with a dedicated Property Advocate on your side the whole process can be stress free and rewarding. We take care of sourcing, inspecting and evaluating potential properties that meet your criteria until we find you the right one. We guide you through the leasing process with our superior skills and service, assisting you the whole way. We source, inspect and evaluate all property types, whether you want a house, unit, apartment or executive residence. Our experience working with all types of properties ensures we’re able to cover the market thoroughly and provide you with some fantastic rental options.

Purchasing

Buying a home or investment property is a major financial decision that needs to be done with care and thought. Without industry experience and knowledge, it is very difficult to navigate the real estate market and secure the right property. Your exclusive Property Advocate will oversee the entire buying process for you and help you find the property of your dreams. We will share our inside knowledge with you, analyse the current market conditions, source and inspect properties that meet your criteria, give you access to properties that haven’t officially been placed on the market yet, and negotiate or bid on your behalf.  

Buying a property on your own – What Can Go Wrong? Buying a property without professional advice can lead to a lot of serious problems along the way. Without having one of our expert Property Advocates on hand you could end up falling into one of these common traps;

  1. Paying more than the property is worth. If you don’t have an understanding of the current market conditions you could end up paying a lot more for a property than what it’s actually worth. Properties need to be properly inspected and evaluated by a skilled assessor with significant property knowledge to ensure that it is worth the asking price. If it’s not, you need to know how much it’s actually worth so you don’t offer the seller too much.
  2. Poor quality properties. When you’re inspecting a property there are a number of aspects that are very important to check, such as the building’s structural integrity, the water pressure and plumbing, council notices about the local area and any sign of water or pest damage, amongst other things. If you’re not aware of these issues or don’t know how to get them properly checked, you could risk buying a property that is in poor condition and will cost you a lot of time and money to fix.
  3. Dishonest sellers. Buying a property without professional credentials behind you could lead to sellers taking advantage of you. If you don’t have the proper skills and experience in the property market, you could very easily fall victim to substandard legal contracts or unethical behaviour, such as the removal of fixtures and fittings that are required to be left behind, or damage to the property after contracts have been exchanged.
  4. Complex contracts and paperwork. Just like when you’re selling a property, buying a property comes with complicated legal contracts and paperwork that need to be filled out correctly. You need to be able to fully understand the terminology and processes so that you can properly negotiate and make sure your terms are met.

Selling

Selling your home or investment property can be a long, complicated process. You may be thinking; “Can you really help me?”.
At YPA, we absolutely can. We’ll not only find you the best agent to sell your property, we can also oversee the entire selling process from beginning to end until you get the result you want. Let us take the stress and pressure away and make the process as simple as possible.

Our experts are on hand to educate and inform you about the process from start to finish including information about the market, advising you about how to add value to your property, and how to set an achievable price.

Doing It on Your Own – What Can Go Wrong?

Trying to sell your property on your own without a proper understanding of the market and how to position your property within it, too often leads to numerous problems and costly mistakes. There are many pitfalls that can cause long term damage when selling your own home.

  1. Getting emotionally involved. As a home owner, it is difficult for you to view the property objectively and see the transaction from a purely financial perspective. You would have created many personal memories in your home, and you may not be able to distance yourself from the emotions you have invested in it. This can lead to you setting unachievable goals and being overly-selective with potential buyers.
  2. Setting an unrealistic price. Without the knowledge of the current property market and an impartial idea of the value of your home, you won’t have the ability to set an appropriate price for your property that will generate interest from potential buyers without turning them away. Overpricing your home will rule out a large percentage of interested buyers, while under-pricing it will result in a smaller profit than what you could have achieved.
  3. Poor marketing. If you don’t employ sufficient and well-targeted marketing and advertising for your property, it won’t reach your intended audience and will result in less opportunities for a sale.
    Some of these methods can include internet listings, media advertising, printing and signs, and these overall costs can be very high if you don’t have professional contacts and industry knowledge.
  4. Not preparing your property for sale. Your home needs to be well presented to increase buyer interest, without the proper experience and knowledge in preparing and staging homes for inspections you can lose many potential buyers. Your familiarity with your home means it will be difficult for you to recognise problem areas, or areas that need maintenance or improvement.
  5. Complex contracts and paperwork. Selling a property is a legal transaction that requires complex formal paperwork, having an understanding of the legal process will help you get an advantage in negotiations and avoid the consequences of signing a contract you don’t fully understand.

With YPA you can be sure you won’t fall into any of these traps. We’ll find the best agents available for you to choose from, and keep a keen eye on their dealings to ensure the process is done properly and the way you want. We’ll arrange the sale of your house the same way we would if we were selling our own.
