9 STEP PROCESS
GETS YOU AHEAD
GETS YOU AHEAD
The Investors Agency handles the entire process. Our networks and partnerships help us to secure high-performing assets for our clients, successfully building and expanding our client portfolios. We are an independent agency, meaning we work primarily for you and do not collect financially for the buying process.
We manage every step of the process for you.
We profile every client to understand three key factors for the purchasing process. First, your finance is the tool that we’ll be using and we need to understand how the banks view this. Secondly, we run a palatability test which exposes what types of assets you consider “safe” and low risk. Finally, understanding points 1 and 2, we’re able to suggest one of our 60+ suburbs that will work for your goals, making sure that you are happy with the quality and returns of the asset, and that the banks need requirements for safe re-servicing for the next purchase are met.
On the same day, once we’ve defined the requirements, you’ll be sent your web-portal login and iOS or Android app download link.
Now that we know what our objectives are:
Our relationships and smart tech put us ahead of the competitors and get us 1st to market!
We understand that buying property in unfamiliar parts of Australia can be a daunting thought. This is why we like to educate our clients on why we are suggesting to do so. Once we have located a property that we running our due diligence on, we’ll send you the presentation for the particular pre-vetted market that it’s located in, exposing population projections, infrastructure projects, economic development, vacancy rates, sensitive market trends and a number of other factors, qualifying the expected market performance.
Within seconds of us assigning it to you in our CRM, you’ll be notified by your smartphone app where you’ll be able to view the details and watch the presentation video.
Soon after the market has been presented to you and once we are comfortable with the pre-qualifying condition and returns of the chosen property, you’ll receive another notification for you to click through and view the property details and watch the property presentation. In this section, we run through information like:
After reviewing the details, we’ll jump on the phone to discuss the opportunity with you further. At this stage, you can pass on the property and we’ll continue the search or proceed to the next stage.
It’s not uncommon for us to arrange the walk-through inspection of the property prior to you giving approval on the opportunity. For us to present a property, we generally deem the opportunity as a good one. For this reason, we want to get ahead of the game and access it before the competition. This will have no impact on you if you decide to pass on the option.
Our inspectors are not part of the selling agents’ team. We use our independent inspectors to walk through the property and create narrated videos pointing out any positives and negatives about the property. These videos are instantly uploaded to our system and automatically to your app, notifying you as soon as they are ready to view. During this time we are also confirming the rental return for the property from a formal rent appraisal which is used to secure finance, later in the process at step 7.
In the instance that you would like us to proceed to make an offer on the property, we’ll discuss the method that we feel best fits the circumstances, ensuring we can negotiate to our best ability. Our independent inspection will flag any concerns that may arise which will help us place relevant clauses on the contract offer to keep you safe and to get the best outcome.
Assuming the offer is accepted and the contract is exchanged, we’ll manage the solicitor’s introduction to associates and legal exchange, finance validation and provide supporting documents around rental income and overlook the process, ensuring finance is secure and legal contracts are sound.
At the same time, we’ll book the building and pest inspection on the property to fit within the contract timeframes.
Once we get your building and pest report back, we’ll go through all the details, call the inspector and clarify any areas where needed, document our notes and upload them to your app with the report. We will once again jump on the phone and go through the details, flagging any concerns and advising the next move. This will be done with time available for further negotiations if necessary before we go unconditional.
At this time, we’ll also introduce you to your advised property manager. We are not financially incentivised by our suggested manager, we suggest them because they are the best in the area from what they do and will achieve the highest returns possible while managing the tenants in your property with respect. The property managers will reach out to you and discuss their fees, process and management structure and onboard you as their client if you so wish.
By the time we get to the unconditional dates on the contract, we’ve been able to secure finance on the property with the values that the brokers and banks have booked, and the building and pest inspection negotiations have been successful. From here, we are getting ready for settlement to occur.
In most instances, the assets that we buy for a client (pending the strategy) hold depreciating assets, this can be the dwelling itself or any inclusion like an air-conditioning unit, carpets, ceiling fans or any upgrades that have been made to the property. These assets are tax deductible and can be claimed back at tax time, generating thousands of dollars back in your pocket each tax time, and assisting further in the folding costs of the property. We will introduce you to our preferred partners who have agreed to provide a discount to any clients that we send their way. Once again, we are not financially benefitting from the partnership and the service costs only several hundred dollars.
1 to 3 days before the property settles, we’ll arrange the pre-settlement inspection, once again with our independent inspectors. This is to ensure that the property that you are about to take ownership of, is in the same condition as when we initially inspected it and that any improvements that may have been negotiated have been made.
CONGRATULATIONS for the second time! That’s a wrap.
Once we have settled on the property, you’ll be set up with management, and property insurance, booked your depreciation inspection, find your tenants (if they haven’t yet been), and be on your way to strong returns.
From here, we’re still in contact, usually, once a quarter, where we update the performance of the market which will give you an idea of how much equity your property has produced so that we can suggest the best to repurpose that into the deposit of your next investment property and start the process once again.
Darren explain why we use the TIA app and portal, what type of information you can expect and what happens once the buying process is complete.
We value our clients, and it's nice to know that they value us too!
