Challenges and concerns
Jarrad knew he wanted to invest in property as he had a deposit saved up and some equity in his owner occupied house in Sydney. However, he wasn’t too confident.
“Purchasing an investment property was such a big step for me and I was scared to be forking out so much money. There was that fear of the unknown, but I’m really glad I went ahead with Binnari in the end.”
Jarrad searched for someone he could rely on and trust to assist in purchasing an investment property for about 3 years and had no success. Jarrad found that the property options laid out to him by numerous companies weren’t great in terms of location and projected growth.
“I decided not to go ahead with anyone’s recommendations. They weren’t honest from the beginning and it wasn’t giving me much confidence. I was making a life changing decision and I had to get it right.”
Jarrad turned to Binnari Property for some clear-headed advice after being recommended by a friend, but was still quite scared to purchase an investment property.
“However, when I sat down with Binnari and went through the properties they recommended, they were showing great growth prospects and location which gave me a lot of confidence. They provided documents detailing the benefits of drawbacks of each property, which assisted in making my decision much easier.”
How We Helped
Working with Binnari
“The team were able to answer honestly about any reservations I had about investing. They never forced me to go a certain direction and gave me plenty of time to make my own decision. There were absolutely no pushy sales pitches”.
“I had that three year period where I did nothing and got nowhere. But, as soon as I spoke with Binnari I ended up choosing a property within 1-2 months. I felt comfortable with them and confident with the options they gave me.”
“I’m time poor so I wanted an easy solution – something that I could invest in and forget. That’s why working with Binnari was a huge advantage. They assisted me right from when I put down the initial deposit all the way through to coordinating settlement and organising a property manager. It really took the grind out of the process as I was able to trust and rely on them to organise everything”.
Jarrad ended up purchasing an off-the-plan land and house package in Brisbane for his first investment, which was completed within 6-12 months of putting down his initial deposit.
“I told Binnari I that I wanted a property that was available in a shorter time frame and they were able to tailor their property options to my needs”.
“I wasn’t too concerned about the property being off the plan. It seems that most properties are these days, and I didn’t want something too old due to missing out on tax depreciation benefits and having to keep up with maintenance.”
After the success of Jarrad’s first purchase, he began working towards purchasing a second investment property. Shortly after purchasing Jarrad realised that the rental income was covering all expenses and he was able to focus on saving and looking for another property.
Jarrad tenanted both properties as soon as they were available on the market. The house has also had quite a substantial rent increase since he purchased.
The Brisbane market continues to strengthen and both of Jarrad’s properties are positively geared with values beginning to increase. His first investment has increased approximately $100,000 based on local comparable sales.
“Ever since purchasing both properties it has been extremely low maintenance and I’ve pretty much just set and forget”.

Hear from Jarrad
“My partner and I’s plan is to relocate up to the Central Coast and purchase an owner occupied property using the equity and growth from the Brisbane house investment and the house I currently live in. We’re now in the position to purchase another investment property but we’re choosing to relocate. The house we currently live in will turn into another investment. The plan is to continue to invest in property and work with Binnari to achieve that after we have relocated.”

“I was really surprised how easy the whole process was with Binnari. They were extremely responsive with emails and queries that came from myself and developers. I was able to sit back but I was still informed about anything I needed to know.”
