I’m not sure if I’m even in a position to invest in property, how do I find out?
Call us for an introductory chat (no obligation or hard sell – We promise!). From there, depending on your needs we can also put you in touch with an independent financial professional who can help get you set up for property purchase.
Can Adviseable help buy property for my self-managed superfund (SMSF)?
Yes! We’ve facilitated many successful property purchases for self-managed superfunds so we’re well versed in the ins & outs, and most importantly, how to choose the right property for your particular SMSF strategy.
Why should I use an Adviseable Buyer’s Agent when theoretically I could do it myself?
When you engage an Adviseable Buyer’s Agent, you’re also accessing an in-house team of advisors and researchers who collectively have decades of experience buying investment properties throughout Australia. So you’ll be able to leverage off our combined expertise, resources, and efforts to ensure that you’re getting the best property investment opportunities available.
How do I know that I’ll be getting value for money when I engage the services of Adviseable?
Our mission is to ensure that you achieve the absolute best results possible from your property investment, and our team takes this aspect very seriously and works very hard accordingly. With that in mind, the upfront financial commitment of the Adviseable fee is comparably only a very small percentage of the long-term financial benefit of successful property investment. Conversely, following poor advice from elsewhere and buying the wrong investment property can be a very costly mistake.
What assurance do I have that Adviseable will act to get the best results possible for me?
Our business thrives almost solely as a result of repeat business and client referrals. On this basis, we have a vested interest in helping you succeed so that you’ll come back again and again and also refer your family, friends, and colleagues our way!
Can Adviseable help me decide where to buy?
Yes! An integral part of our expertise and service is conducting research to identify the top growth areas throughout Australia. Naturally this research is shared with our investor clients and forms the basis of the personalised area recommendations that we provide.
Does Adviseable focus on a capital growth or a cash-flow centric property investment strategy?
We certainly don’t adhere to a ‘one size fits all’ approach, we tailor each area recommendation and property search to the specific needs of the individual investor with both cash-flow and capital growth criteria being considered. That said, we will always focus on strong capital growth as the fundamental objective for any purchase.
I am looking to build a diverse multi-property portfolio, can Adviseable help?
Yes! Our team is equipped with the expertise and know-how to enable our investor clients to build a well-rounded and profitable property investment portfolio, whether that is to comprise of a few properties or a few dozen!
Does Adviseable buy homes for owner occupiers as well as properties for investors?
No. Our view is that buying a home to live in is a vastly different exercise to buying a property for the sole purpose of investment. For this reason we’ve made the conscious decision to maintain our focus on our passion, which is finding the best property investment opportunities throughout the country!
Does Adviseable offer a part service such as advice only or bidding at auction?
No. To ensure maximum success for our clients, we only offer a comprehensive property investment advisory and buyer’s agency service that encompasses the process from start to finish.
What methodology or process does Adviseable follow when researching areas and properties?
During our area research and selection process, we analyse 10 key aspects of an area to determine whether it meets our strict criteria. We refer to this list of qualifying criteria as our ‘Area Top 10’. As for our property specific due-diligence and selection process, we conduct a 40+ point evaluation as the basis for our property assessment.
Does Adviseable get access to off-market property listings?
Yes! As one of our essential skills as buyer’s agents is to sniff out the top opportunities ahead of the pack, we often get access to fantastic off-market options for our clients.
Is the Adviseable fee tax-deductible?
For the final word on the matter you should always consult with your tax accountant, however as our fee is typically considered part of the ‘cost base’ for investment property purchase it can often contribute to offsetting tax liability upon sale.
Can the Adviseable fee be paid for with borrowed funds?
Please consult your financial professional for specific advice here. However assuming that the investor has an equity loan facility available and it’s in line with their financial strategy to do so, there shouldn’t be any reason to prevent them from using these borrowed funds to pay our fee.
Does Adviseable get paid for any of the property recommendations that they provide?
No! We pride ourselves in operating an entirely ‘fee for service’ business model and strictly refusing any third party vendor ‘kickbacks’. This transparent arrangement ensures that our clients know that we’re working exclusively in their best interest at all times.
Is Adviseable a member of any industry associations or regulatory bodies?
Yes! We’re big proponents of industry regulation to maintain high professional standards and most importantly promote consumer protection. As such, we’re active and in some cases voluntary members of a number of industry associations including; Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA), the Real Estate Institutes within each state, and Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia (REBAA).
Does Adviseable help with finding and engaging a property manager?
Yes! Although there’s no obligation to use anyone that we recommend, part of our service includes putting forward pre-vetted referrals to the key professionals required to keep the investor safe and ensure that the property purchase is as successful as possible.
I would like to buy a property to subdivide and redevelop, can Adviseable help with this?
Yes! Our team has vast experience with development and can oversee the entire subdivision project from initial feasibility right through to tenancy. This service is delivered with the same principles as our buyer’s agency service, so you’ll receive comprehensive advice, research, due-diligence, valuation & negotiation skills, third-party professional recommendations, support & communication, and legwork from us. Furthermore, of course it goes without saying that our ethos around being 100% fee for service, unbiased, and independent apply to this model too.
I’m considering purchasing a property and adding a granny-flat, can Adviseable help with this?
Yes! As touched on above, our team has a wealth of expertise with this type of endeavour and can readily facilitate such a property acquisition and addition.
Does Adviseable sell house & land packages or off-the-plan properties?
No. Just to clarify, Adviseable does not sell properties. We either buy established properties on behalf our clients, or we develop them from scratch putting the investor client on the profitable side of the equation in the process. Our mission is to help our investor clients make money, not third party developers.
Does Adviseable buy commercial/industrial/retail properties in addition to residential?
No. Whilst these investments certainly have their place, we’ve elected to stay within our lane of providing premium investment solutions in the standard residential property sector.
