Smart Property Services
We offer 3 main engagement models that suit the needs of different types of investors.
Model 1: Property Advisory
We match investors with well-researched property that meets your budget and goals. We tend to target cash flow positive property in growth areas close to major population centres. Typically these are off-market or exclusive opportunities in small, boutique developments. (We don’t recommend apartments, due to their chronic oversupply and poor growth outlook.)
We act as a real estate agent in the transaction and are paid by the property vendor according to standard industry rates.
Model 2: Buyer’s Agency
A few investors have very specific requirements that may fit outside new stock currently on the market. If this is the case, we’re able to act as a buyer’s advocate in order to source and negotiate the best property available that fits your requirements. With this engagement model, we are paid a service fee by the investor of $10,000 + GST per successful purchase.
Model 3: Armchair Development
Some investors have the financial capacity to fund property development projects in whole or in part, but lack the skills or the desire to get their hands dirty doing the work.
With the Armchair Development model, we introduce clients to vetted property developers. This model allows investors to “manufacture equity” and acquire property at 15-20% below retail price. Our fees for each successful introduction are $10,000 + GST, paid by the investor.
