Prince Alfred Parade, Newport
Address: 171 Prince Alfred Parade, Newport
Type of property: House
Reason for purchase: Owner/Occupier
Client brief: After many years raising a family on the Upper North Shore, our clients were seeking a sea-change to a more entertainment-focused home on the Northern Beaches.
Overview of the purchase: Using a holistic approach to their transition, we first helped our clients choose and negotiate terms with a selling agent. With that process in place, we could confidently proceed with a comprehensive search.
In just over 1 month we had inspected enough properties on and off-market for our clients to have a clear understanding of their options.
With settlement on their successful sale looming, we were able to quickly turn around attractive terms and early access to their new tree-house overlooking the beautiful Pittwater.
"We really didn’t grasp the beauty of the view when we decided to buy the house. So it’s been a pleasant surprise for us - both waking up to it and seeing the sunsets.
Overall, it couldn’t be further from our original brief of a 3 bedroom townhouse, on the flat, no stairs and near the shops. But we’ve managed to end up in a place which is far more house for the money, than we ever thought possible when moving to this area. For that we are very grateful to yourself and to Prosper. I have no doubt that your help in executing the final deal contributed to a saving of $50,000 for us.
The time we saved using your services to vet properties before we viewed them, is hard to quantify in dollar terms. But I’d say it saved us 3-4 weekends of looking at houses which looked good on Realestate.com, but were not relevant.
Being quite time poor I value our time in terms of things I’d prefer to be doing.
We’re personally happy to recommend Prosper to anyone looking to buy on the North Shore, especially if they don’t know the market, as we didn’t. We got more than our money’s worth"
