Welcome to my Adelaide BA story I have just settled on an IP in the northern suburbs of Adelaide thanks to help from @DaveM I have had my eye on Adelaide for quite a few months but once i was good to go with my brokers confident nod it was time to act! Now i know many people have their opinions on BA's on the forum and so do I... so here's my 3 cents I went to Dave as i had recent success in brissy and after a chat on the phone and a few emails i was very confident dave could help me. I like to use a BA to get some quick, confident deals. I'm happy to look but the nitty gritty of getting numbers together in more detail and talking with agents i don't have enough time for. I like the short list option and putting an offer in straight away Dave has a very thorough knowledge of Adelaide, IP's, infrastructure, rental demand and importantly understanding what i wanted. I knew my budget, had a few areas in mind and also yields expected. Dave refined my criteria and also suggested a few other options which i was happy to hear. I got nice clear reports with all the good bits and photos. All i had to do was say yay or nay In the end i got a 3x2 @8% yield for <200k. Waiting on a valuation but looking close to 20%bmv! He found a deal that had been on the market for a while, then sale fell through thanks to a fhb pulling out we jumped on it straight away. Carpet going in tomorrow and it's like new! All in all he's a top honest guy willing to help before making money from the deal.
