After selling her family home this client was looking to downsize and transition into the next chapter of her life.
Having lived in her family home for many years, the thought of searching, purchasing a home was daunting. This is where Zoran Solano, and Daniel Mumford came into the process.
The first step was to sit down with the client and understand her needs and wants, before we start searching we start listening to our clients desires in order to create the searching brief, this next property would have to be a comfortable place to live into retirement so it had to be as perfect as possible.
Some of those criteria included;
- No Stairs, looking into the future the client knew that stairs would be a challenge so single level was vital.
- Low Maintenance, the thought of mowing lawns wasn’t of interest to our client.
- Low Body Corp costs, to manage cash flow into retirement we discussed with our client that a small boutique complex with lower body corps would be ideal.
- Proximity to Cafes and shops, our client was very mindful that as she got older convenience would be key so being waling distance to a strip of shops was important.
After searching for several weeks, the search went through several evolutions, and an education process of showing our client what her budget would afford, and the different options available. This property on Jamieson Street Bulimba ticked all the boxes and was secured for a highly competitive price.
