Buying Investment Property In Eastern Suburbs

Buying a property in the suburb of Melbourne, can be a difficult and demanding process to handle. However, Wise Real Estate Advice, can help you break into the market to buy the perfect investment property. Senior Buyers Advocate, Mark Ribarsky recently took on the responsibility of helping an investor to buy a property in Clayton. Before coming to Mark, he had attended other auctions and was unsuccessful in purchasing a property, as he found it quite challenging. After contacting Mark, they had attended two auctions. The first auction that they attended, they walked away from the auction, as a bidder was willing to pay $618,000, for the property. However, Mark valued the property at $610,000 and were not willing to pay more as he carefully valued the property and did not see it as a benefit.


The second auction that they attended 2 weeks later was a 2-bedroom unit on Carinish Road, that was located just 100 metres down the road from the first auction that they attended, where, “both the properties were comparable, however the second property was closer to the train station” according to Mark. In the end Mark was eager in securing the property for his client, and decided to privately negotiate with the Real Estate Agent, to take it off the market and secure a deal. They were successful with the 2-bedroom unit where they purchased it for $600,000. The reason why Mark and his client were satisfied with the purchase, was because they bought a similar property and saved $18,000, in the matter of 2 weeks.


Ever since the purchase of the property, Property Managers Melb, a sister company, have assisted them in listing their house for rent, and have received a higher rental income than what the market has indicated, which has grown 5% as of early 2017.

    I found Mark through Google!!!.
    Since my first meeting I felt so confident in Mark's ability and experience in being able to deliver a great result. I was very much impressed with Mark's service as he made the whole process easier and stress free!!!!

    I am really happy because I bought exactly what I was looking for and it was well under my top budget. Most importantly We did it within few weeks.

    Since day one Mark was very pro-active.

     Mark emailed multiple properties every week within my search parameters and wish list.
     Mark allowed me to be involved as much as I wished.
     Mark inspected the properties I liked.
     Mark explained the positives and negatives about each property.
     Mark held a pre-auction meeting and attended the auction
     Mark's strategies and suggestions like where he’ll stand during the auction, how he’ll handle the negotiation etc. etc. and through to the final shaking of hands inside the house all played out in a positive way.

    Thank you Mark for all your work in getting me the right house for the right price!

    I highly recommend Mark for everybody who wants to find a good place to live or invest.

    Many, many, many thanks!

    Mark was personally recommended to me as someone who could be of real help in appraising my property of interest and subsequently representing me at auction.
    He made time to meet for an initial chat over coffee. I was immediately impressed and relaxed with his easy and honest nature, as well as his willingness to listen to my needs.
    A genuinely nice bloke... well experienced in the RE scene, totally committed to helping his clients.... all in all, a very worthwhile experience.
