Following on from last month’s Hudson Report, where we introduced the concept of using a buyer’s agent to assist with the purchase of property, please read below to learn more about our partnership with Simon Clarke of Universal Buyers Agents in Brisbane as well as just one example of what he has recently achieved for a client off market:
Simon Clarke is a highly devoted, people-focused buyer’s agent whose acquired skills and industry experience have enabled him to assist multiple buyers and sellers across Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.
Previously working with developers and property research groups, Simon discovered his passion for people and property, which has cultivated his drive towards the buyer’s agency side of the industry.
Hailing originally from Victoria, then living overseas for five years and more recently spending 14 years in Sydney, Simon moved to Brisbane in 2017, and while he has now settled in with his young family, Simon can efficiently connect with buyers both interstate and overseas.
Simon’s ambition for property has stemmed from his own personal experiences of buying, renovating and investing, and has enabled him to action his knowledge and experience to ensure the best possible outcome for any client.
Having worked with buyer’s agents himself in the past to purchase his own family home, Simon understands how important it is to work with professionals that handle all the details and negotiations.
Simon’s professional yet personable manner, as well as his open communication style has enabled him to quickly progress in his career. Simons level of customer service, his property expertise and his research skills have led Simon to multiple successful transactions that have enabled him to generate clients for life.
A recent example is the off market purchase of a legal height and fully renovated investment property in Arana Hills, Brisbane, for $686K renting for $675 per week. That’s a gross yield in excess of 5% pa!
Brisbane property is projected to be one of the best performing markets over the nest few years, according to real estate specialist Colin Walsh. Why?
- Record low interest rates
- Steady prices throughout Covid-19
- $28 billion in infrastructure projects
- Projected lack of supply
- Strong rental yields
