Our Thoughts

Definitely an option. The location is great, a short stroll across the park to the train station and minor shops are just beyond that. Back towards Arana is the major shops and schools, so a very central location. The property itself has been updated and is definitely livable in its current condition and can be for a long time. It's a really nice large block, but currently, a lot of it is not able to be accessed. These are all future works as the distance to the train station will mean this property leases without too much issue. 


Renovation Recommendations

Buying this property would need to allow for future works to maximise its potential. It already has a rear deck and patio (uncovered), however, it's unappealing and is disconnected from the kitchen and dining area. I would push out from the kitchen to be in line with the end of the patio and enclose the patio. This would create a nice large living and eating space to the rear of the property with a really nice entertaining deck. I'd create a tandem garage carport to run adjacent to the property, leaving more green space to the rear yard. A new shed can be built and moved to the rear corner of the block (there could be the ability to keep the current one and relocate it also). Finally, I would get someone in to completely clear the trees and shrubs in the rear yard, I would then flatten the land, re-turf and install basic vegetation gardens around the perimeter. Perhaps hedging for additional privacy.




















































Purchasing Strategy


Given this property was under offer, and now back on the market because finance fell through, our approach here would be an unconditional offer once the build & pest inspection has been completed. As of today (Monday 21/1), we have been made aware that there is another party closing in on an offer above the ask ($589k). We have a logical range of $575k - $585k and firmly believe this is the true value, with $580k, being the sweet spot. We recommend an unconditional offer at the $575k mark and a max offer at $585k. Given the offer comes without conditions, we have scope to start at the $575k and see where it takes us.
