“Scarcity drives value, the rarer an object – the more desirable; and therefore the more valuable it is.”
“Therefore – Price is what you pay, value is what you get.”
Understanding value and what it means to the individual, is the key to my successful acquisition for my clients. Whether it’s a home or investment, building a portfolio, buying a second home or investing in commercial property.
For over 25 years, I’ve enjoyed success in developing businesses across a number of industries. These include; construction, recruitment, media, finance, technology, international trading and property.
My extensive experience in Business Development, Marketing and start-ups ensures my clients benefit from a multi-disciplinary, solutions-based approach to solving their property problems.
I understand that homes are vital part of most Australians wealth creation – 70% of Australians have their wealth tied to their residences. A large driver being that the proceeds of its sale remain tax-free.
My approach to finding the right property for my clients:
Understanding What Drives Growth Over Time
Ultimately, the right property needs to optimise three basic requirements – economics, functionality and lifestyle. I ensure my approach to buying for my clients is both quantitative and qualitative.
While analysis around property value and purchasing range are informative and important to buyers – capital growth is driven by a set of key fundamentals:
- Location, including proximity to transport, schools, hospitals, cafes, parks and beaches
- Asset quality, an optimal floorplan, natural light and aspect to name a few
- The barriers to entry for the construction of new dwellings that might dilute the property’s standing in the market – particularly relevant for units
Therefore a property’s enduring value is based on patterns in human behaviour. A combination of its desirability and liveability – underscoring both is scarcity.
Understanding the Individual Needs of My Client
Every home owner or investor is unique. Understanding my client’s individual strategy, capacity and needs – then applying these to purchase the right asset is key to their success.
I’ve been able to consistently solve my client’s property problems and effectively manage the risk of some of their largest investments – their homes, and continue to build their wealth outside of their primary home through intelligent property investments.
Remaining cognisant of the future buyer profile and prospective tenant profile before purchasing a property is also a vital part of my long-term risk-management strategy.
Understanding your property’s growth trajectory and knowing the depth of its target market from the outset, gives you confidence when securing your first or next property.
