Our top 10 tips for house-hunting

Whether looking for an investment or your next family home, there are some universal factors to consider when looking for a great property. Exactly which of these factors are most important will be determined by the buyer, but each of these factors offers critical perspective on a potential opportunity. A great local area The first question is to always look at the surrounding neighbourhood. Are the streets well designed and regularly maintained? How close are transport hubs and local amenities? Current and future development in the area Knowing what development is happening nearby can influence not only the long-term value of a property, but also can have an immediate impact on the liveability, with considerations such as noise and dirt. Natural light and orientation Natural light is one of the most influential aspects of a home’s feel and presentation. Assess where natural light will be coming from at various times across the day, and the overall impact the light has on key rooms. A good, logical layout The layout of a home is a very important factor, and should be considered with the furniture you would like to bring into the space. Considering factors such as doorways, power-points, windows and walkways can set one home apart from another very quickly.

2020: Year in Review

The words “unprecedented” and “unexpected” have been used many times over this year, and it has certainly been a year of challenges for many in our community. As we look back and reflect on the year that has been, the Brady Marcs team are collectively very thankful and proud of what we have been able to achieve. The property market has withstood the uncertainty remarkably well, and the Brady Marcs team took the challenge to double down to find many unique and timely opportunities for clients. If anything, 2020 meant that the team needed to adapt quickly and modify procedures, and our results speak for themselves. As many experts and industry analysts continue to report, the market has continued to grow in 2020, and is showing every indication that this growth will continue well into the new year. Buyer demand is strong, which naturally pushes the market up. More than ever, having a clear strategy and approach to the buying process including sourcing properties and negotiating on purchase price has had its benefits. We’ve seen many opportunities that are extremely timely, and in many cases off market. We have assisted a number of ex-pat buyers; managing the process of returning home to Sydney remotely, and making sure the process is as smooth and seamless as possible. For some clients this included coordinating not only the purchase of a property, but furnishing and styling the home to be ready to simply walk in. We worked with buyers to expand their investment
