    Hi Everyone,

    My sister and brother in law are looking for an OO property to settle down in somewhere in one one of the below suburbs:

    Asquith, Hornsby, Wahroonga, Normanhurst, Thornleigh, Westleigh, Pennant Hills

    They are finance ready (1mill - 1.3) and have a number or purchase options, IE they can spend more if what they buy can generate an extra income from a granny flat etc or subdivision.

    Unfortunately most of what they find which they are keen on has huge numbers turn up at auction and are going for 100 - 200k above advertised reserve.

    I suggested using a BA to potentially source some off market opportunities and to help with the process as they haven't got huge amounts of time to commit and it appears they need a new angle of attack.

    Does anyone have experience with any BA's in the area and or provide recommendations\contacts to reach out to for an initial chat?


    Thanks all!
    Andy

    + 2 for Jacque Parker. Also bear in mind that the UNS is hot property right now and there are few off market opportunities (but there are some) and if auctions are going $100-200K over your friend's limit no BA no matter how good, can engage in auction tactics to overcome this. Most money wins is usually the motto in that kind of market.

    Why not recommend in the thread so others can also benefit from your experience?

    Hi all,

    Thanks so much for the feedback. Looks like Jacque has lots of support so have passed on her info to my sister etc as well www.mmba.com.au as recommended by FirstIP.

    I fully appreciate the state of the upper north shore market at the moment. It's horrible watching these guys getting attached to nice places that tick all the boxes for them and seeing them go well outside their budget. Understand a BA isnt going to save them a few hundred k but I feel some guidance and knowledge to reset their expectations will save them a lot of stress.

    Thanks again everyone! :)
