Battersea Street, Abbotsford
Address: 6/39 Battersea Street, Abbotsford
Type of property: Apartment
Reason for purchase: Owner/Occupier
Client brief: This busy executive was searching for an Inner West apartment with intimate water views and a large entertaining-size balcony. Having been actively looking on his own for some time, our client was initially sceptical about using our services.
Overview of the purchase: Despite the challenging brief, within just a few days we had identified a number of off-market and pre-market options. One in Abbotsford was particularly appealing – smaller boutique block, magical views, renovated, and with an over-sized north-facing balcony.
The vendor and agent had unrealistic price expectations, and we could see that many other buyers would be scared off. Our strategy was to pull back and wait until Auction where a much better price could be negotiated. The plan paid off. Our client has now secured his dream home well below budget.
