Hereford Street, Glebe
Address: 201/2A Hereford Street, Glebe
Type of property: Apartment
Reason for purchase: Owner/ Occupier
Client brief: Our client was a first home owner looking for an inner-city pad for themselves and their fury friend. Their wish list was for an oversized apartment that was pet friendly, requiring minimal renovation, with a balcony and plenty of light.
Overview of the purchase: Dealing with a vendor who was unwilling to adjust their price expectations in line with the current market, Prosper Group applied a negotiation strategy of putting forward one offer with a deadline of expiry. To our client's delight, the vendor reluctantly accepted our offer at a significant discount.
“I never thought I would get the house of my dreams on my first time buying - but I did - and I owe it all to Jill Cook. Buying my first property was daunting and riddled with leading information from sellers agents, banks and inexperienced friends. From my first coffee with Jill I could tell she got it. She was empathetic and considered with her consultancy - but I knew under all that, she was no ones fool, and would work her hardest to get me the best property at the best price. Of course, I had reservations about paying for a buyers agent when I thought I could search for properties and negotiate myself - but when I saw how deep Jill got into investigating every single element of a potential property's pros and cons (and saved me from a MAJOR poor buy, revealed only through a deep analysis of the property's financial records) I had no doubt that the investment in a buyer's agent would earn more than itself back through the purchase of a sound property."
