Well what can I say……having been in contact with Uwe and his team at Property Friends for some years and watching them eagerly and getting a feel for how they operate I am happy to say that I have now purchased my first investment property!!!!
Uwe and his team came highly recommended and my book-keepers and accountant have also purchased properties from Property Friends….. For a process which has evolved over time with tax laws changing regularly with regards to SMSF investments, Uwe and his team had me covered from the word GO…. Was it a complex process yes…. did it feel like a complex process…NO… Property Friend helped me through from start to finish and we now have happy tenants in our property in Townsville…
The services which the team at Property Friends provided (i.e. because they wanted to not because they had to) that go above and beyond included:
* Contacts for all aspects of the purchase i.e. accountants, legal, financial, insurance etc.
* Almost holding your hand through the process with reminders for next steps
* Giving you visibility into where things are at and also for interstate purchases like us, it helped put the whole picture together instead of flying blind
* Some wonderful contacts for both insurance and quantity surveyor requirements etc.
* Leveraging from existing relationships with agents to manage your investment properties which also saved us a few bucks monthly
* They have the relationships with builders & developers…. Helping you understand the process and assisting with effective communications as required
To put the ‘icing on the cake’ so to speak, we had some challenges where the builder was delayed in finalising the property that then impacted our ability to settle by the due date and incurred interest to developer……. Property Friends even after the event, after all that was done and said, three month after settlement of property, Uwe still was chasing up matters for us in the background (out of his own accord), which eventually resulted in an extra refund of $3,100.35…… easiest $3K that I ever made and all of that without a cent extra for their service…….
I am looking forward to making use of Property Friend services again for further investment purchases as they take the pain out of the process especially when you are time poor like me…….I cannot recommend them highly enough….
Thanks to Uwe & the Team @ Property Friends….
