The Semi Scout
The Semi Scout is for the buyer who enjoys researching properties online but need help with the rest of the buying process. This service includes all the features of the Full Scout except for property selection (on & off market properties). We inspect your shortlisted properties, provide detailed reports, price assessment, coordinate due diligence and negotiate both via private treaty and auction.
- This service requires you to do the property search delivering as many properties as you like for us to evaluate and negotiate in a six month period. There is no limit to the amount of properties we will evaluate and negotiate for you in that time frame
- We coordinate assistance in pest and building inspections, strata reviews, valuers and many other industry referrals.
Appraisal and negotiation
Once you provide us with your preferred property we complete extensive market research and suburb analysis, assessing the market value for the property using our years of local knowledge and through our detailed database of comparable sales. After the market value is established, we commence negotiations with the vendor’s agent. This is where we excel, we are skilled negotiators and will negotiate the lowest possible price for your property. We do this from a well researched and educated position, taking away any emotional factors (which is the main reason people over pay for property).
Legal review / building and pest reports
Once the offer has been accepted, we strongly recommend you engage a building and pest inspector or strata review (for apartments). Your solicitor will also review the contract of sale to check all legal requirements are satisfied. We can assist with the coordination of these and other necessary support services. (Note, the purchaser pays separate fees for pest and building inspections, strata searches and legal conveyancing.) We will also give you our personal opinion and any reports.
We keep you informed of any other issues in the lead up to settlement and provide any assistance along the way. For investor clients we will advise on rental values and help you select competent local property managers.
After the exchange of contracts we ensure everything is seen to in a professional and efficient manner, through to the day of settlement.
