Marrickville, NSW 2204 family friendly Residence
Type of Property: House
Reason for Purchase: Primary Residence
Address: Marrickville, NSW 2204
After 2.5 years of anguish and frustration, the client missed out on his dream home last year and countless other opportunities to secure a property. The market is moving up very fast so if we did not move swiftly we would have missed out – 2.5 years ago the clients budget was $750k. It was now $1M and still it was very hard to find all that he wanted within his budget. The initial discussion was that our fee to secure a property took away more money from his tight budget. Although my argument was that he should have engaged me years ago and it would have saved him $250k.. or alternatively if he waits another 2.5 years it may cost him another $250k on top of the last $250k. I’m really glad he made the right choice.
It takes real guts to have a goal and to not give up when the going gets tough, they need to go and get it and seize an opportunity (like to employ a professional) when you think you know how to do the job yourself . The client believed in me enough to take a leap of faith in order to get what he’s always wanted, his own home in Marrickville.
Still feeling very excited – I reckon we’ve done really well. Considering price, location, and my pretty demanding list of requirements – it’s great! I have had a steady flow of excited people since 11:30am yesterday – a lot of people at work have been monitoring my real estate anguish over the last 2.5 years – so there’s almost nationwide joy and relief!
Thanks for your help, support and running around. I know one of my big problems was around negotiating and “talking turkey” with real estate agents – without you to step in and take that on, I don’t think I could have ever ended up with a place. I would have just continued to walk away. So thanks for sticking in there.”
