Humble Property In Clayton Skyrockets

A humble property in Clayton has made its owner very happy indeed, by making a $640,000 windfall in just 15 months. The home on Kimbarra St had no changes to appearance whatsoever, but sold with the addition of planning permits.


The property was purchased in May 2016 for $800,000, and then sold with the planning permits in August 2017 for $1,4400,000.


Senior Buyers Advocate Mark Ribarsky says that selling a property with planning permits can increase the property value greatly. “There were some zoning changes in Clayton with regards to restricting development, and this vendor very cleverly purchased this property with specific intentions of getting permits before selling it on for a profit”. Mr. Ribarsky says “The property sits on a 671sq m block, and with the permits, the new owner can build four townhouses on this property, rather than two”.


This tactic increased the properties value by 80 percent, which is far higher than the 11 per cent growth the rest of the suburb had.


Mark says, “Property prices in Clayton, and Clayton South are going to sky rocket because of developers are paying more attention to these areas. If that property was subject to two townhouses built, it might have fetched $1,100,000. The additional two houses on the permits gained this vendor an additional $340,000”

    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.
