Referred by her mortgage broker, Narelle had been looking for a home for 18 months before engaging our services. Working together we were able to help Narelle refine her home buyer brief, which allowed her to get clear on her needs, her financial goals and how much she actually needed to spend to secure her dream home.
By accepting our advice, Narelle revised her brief from wanting a 2 bedroom apartment in St Kilda to buying a single fronted 2 bedroom home in the tightly held suburb of Ripponlea, which represented excellent value for money and a fantastic asset from which to to leverage in the future **.
She understood after working with us that was imperative that her own home had strong underlying growth drivers, so that equity gains could be used to purchase more property in the future.
