North Bondi, NSW 2026
Type of Property: House
Reason for Purchase: Primary Residence
Address: Hastings Parade, North Bondi NSW 2026
The client mandated a specific brief for a recently built home to grow with a young family. There was preference to purchase on one street – the blue-ribbon, tightly held address of Hastings Parade in North Bondi.
On Site Interactions:
Cohen Handler undertook a door-knock campaign of the whole street and initially uncovered an off market opportunity. This property presented reservations from the outset due to the semi-detached format, however at the right price would still have been a great opportunity. After presenting an initial offer to the vendor, it became clear that they were chasing an unrealistic price point, and we swiftly opted out of further negotiations. The property that ultimately was secured was still on the Hastings Pde, North Bondi favoured street as a free standing home ready to move into. There also boasted renovation potential as family development required.
Negotiation & Bid Methods:
The opportunity was first brought to the client’s attention at pre-market to a wider public campaign. However, the vendor was adamant to conduct an open inspection before selling prior. Under close consultation with the client to undertake an aggressive sourcing strategy, we made a strong offer and had acceptance after the first open inspection.
“In a nutshell, Cohen Handler have exceeded our expectations. We had very specific requirements for the purchase of our family home – particularly regarding location (down to a specific street). Even after signing up, we were not sure that Cohen Handler would be able to find our dream home. Four months later Cohen Handler exceeded our expectations, and we exchanged on what is now our family home. Cohen Handler’s service was impeccable, their industry knowledge and contacts were invaluable. We could not be happier with our Cohen Handler experience. Thank you Daniel and Simon!”
