Q and A

Will I be pressured into buying a property?

Absolutely not. This is a low-key, exploratory session designed to see if and how we can help you achieve what’s important to you and your family. There is usually no discussion of specific properties during this initial phone call, and never any property to buy on this call – even if you want to.

Why is this session free of charge? What’s the catch?

There’s no catch. We believe that if you genuinely want to invest in property, then the best first step is to provide you with the most useful information and advice we can, on a no-cost, no-obligation basis. If you’re happy with our approach, you’ll naturally want to find out more. Alternatively, if what we offer is not ideal for you, that’s fine too. This is a simple first step that allows us both to get to know each other, without obligation.

How does Smart Property earn its income?

We offer a range of services, with differing fee structures.

Where we act as a property investment advisor and introduce appropriate property(s) to you as an investor, our service is free to you. All property has a sales and marketing cost, and in this case, the sales and marketing cost is borne by the property developer or vendor.

Where we act as buyer’s agent, we charge a percentage fee based on your search instructions and success criteria.

Where we act as development manager for prospective investors who want to manufacture equity, we charge a development management fee and/or success fee.

We disclose all fees and charges up front in a clear and transparent way.
