Helping you find the right property.

How We Do It

Select Property Finder is your smart and easy way to buying property. With 13 stress-free steps, you can have the ideal property of your dreams. Here’s how we do it:

1.     Initial Consultation

During a personal consultation, your needs and expectations will be discussed from a property investment or home owner perspective. Your long term investment plan will be discussed and a checklist completed of your preferences. You may consider the type of property that you prefer, such as house, unit, duplex, townhouse, villa, Torrens Title or Strata and your preferred location, such as area or suburb, proximity to beach, park, shops and transport.

Select Property Finder will give an undertaking to work with you on an individual basis and to locate, evaluate and present properties which meet your criteria and preferences, determined from the initial discussion. You will be asked to sign a Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement, to enable you to be provided with confidential property information.

This is all about you. Meeting your expectations and fulfilling your needs are the most important aspects in the whole process of purchasing a property. 

2.     Agreed to Proceed

To proceed with Select Property Finder representing you as a buyer, a Buyers Agency Agreement, endorsed by the Real Estate Institute of NSW, will be signed by both parties and an up-front Registration Fee is payable. This fee covers setting up costs, agreement costs, searches, property analysis, evaluation, reporting and communication. The Registration Fee is not refundable, however the full amount will be deducted from the completion fee.

At this stage, you can now sit back and relax.  We will do it the smart and easy way.

3.     Search

Potential properties will be located and researched based on your nominated criteria. The search will include median prices, rental yield, vacancy rates, growth potential and demographics.

4.    Analysis and Selection

Specific properties will then be individually analysed and evaluated in terms of the type of dwelling, construction, condition, size, land dimensions, zoning, conditions that may affect the land or use of the land, rental potential and Comparative Market Analysis. Properties will only be selected based on your criteria and preferences and which also measure up as having good investment potential.

Depending on your geograpical location, you may wish to inspect the property, and further feedback and discussion can be provided on site.
