Q&A: Protection against building defects, approaching buyer’s agents & FIRE
We love hearing from you and understanding what you are thinking about the property market. On this episode of the Australian Property Podcast Buyer’s Agent, Amy Lunardi, and Found of Rask, Owen Rask are answering some of the latest questions that you our community have asked us!
In this episode, we cover the following questions:
Can a seller approach a buyer's agent directly rather than engaging a real estate agent in order to reduce fees and marketing costs? - What are the considerations of dealing with a buyer's agent directly, rather than selling with an agent? What are the benefits (and the costs) in terms of price, fees, expertise, exposure & efficiency?
The importance of a property team - From buyer’s agents, real estate agents, mortgage brokers & property managers in helping you navigate the nuanced layers and problems in buying, selling, and renting a property
Handling emotions around not being able to afford what you want - How to understand what you can and cannot control
FIRE (financial independence retire early)- Moving to a cheaper state to retire early, diversifying investments away from pure property & how to manage your finances with your lifestyle, getting advice from financial & property professionals
Diversifying your investments - what courses and resources are available?
Property in rural mining areas - Is this a growth opportunity? Is it a long-term sustainable opportunity?
What if something goes wrong with my property when it's passed an inspection? - What actions can I take?
We want to help you prepare for any kind of future - if have anything you’ve been wanting to ask, submit a question and the team and have it featured on the show!
