We will work side by side with you from the moment we create your strategy and begin your search to the day you get the keys to your property. We take the time to learn and analyse your needs and make recommendations based on your individual goals and purchasing power. We distill complex information provided by our team of researchers and property analysts to provide you with a clear strategy for acquisition, expansion, growth, sale or lease. We target the type of properties that deliver value for you now and in the long run and negotiate on your behalf so you get the best possible outcome.

1. INITIAL MEETING

We start with a phone meeting to understand your background and goals. After sending you a detailed overview of what we do and how we can help, we’ll follow up with a face to face (or online) meeting to provide a high level strategy aligned to your needs within the context of current property environment. We also provide case studies of previous work to help you understand the value of what we do and how we can make a difference. We will then present you with a proposal and timeline before we are formally engaged for the next stage of work.

These initial meetings give us the opportunity to analyse your property eco-system, including your financial health, personal objectives and property goals as well as getting to know your extended team to ensure our strategy and research is aligned and tailored to your circumstances.

2. MARKET RESEARCH – REAL ESTATE STRATEGY

Having gained a deep understanding of your real estate strategy needs from the initial meetings, we will develop a plan supported by independent market research from our dedicated and experienced team to ensure all opportunities and risks are considered before we embark on the next phase.

For business owners, this will be around location strategy, competition mapping, population trends, affordability assessment, buying versus leasing and getting everyone aligned before we enter the market to find you the right site.

For the investors, we compare the strategies available to you according to your property profile and investment appetite and provide you with alternative strategies and suburbs that align to your criteria.

 

 

3. SEARCH, INSPECTION & DUE DILIGENCE

This phase is the most intensive of all stages and involves at least three or four members of the 1Group team. You will have access to an online portal so you can view real time updates and results of detailed property inspections and area analyses as the team searches opportunities according to the brief.

Throughout this stage we engage our extended team of building inspectors, commercial fit-out companies, town planners, builders and tradespeople to finalise the assessment before we deem it fit for investment for purchase or lease.

Whether you are investing or securing your family home or business, we complete extensive due diligence and pricing before any options are referred back to you for consideration.

 

 

4. RESEARCH AND REPORTING

Every property recommendation is accompanied by a comprehensive 1Group Property Report tailored to your strategy. Whether it is your dream home in the ideal school catchment or the most prominent location for your business, our reports include the results of a thorough inspection of the short-listed properties with extensive commentary on the suitability, demographic data, infrastructure, local and surrounding suburb analysis, school zones, council zoning, cashflow projections, key growth drivers, risk indicators and our independent pricing assessment.

 

 

 

 

 

5. NEGOTIATION AND AUCTION ATTENDANCE

Once you’ve approved the recommended property, we commence the negotiation process which is where we have the biggest impact for our clients. Our combination of valuation expertise, market insights, deeper agent discussions and a non-emotional approach places us in a position where we’re able to achieve superior outcomes.

We are also often engaged by our business clients to negotiate the terms of a commercial lease. Lease negotiations are extremely complex and the pain of a poorly negotiated lease will be felt for years to come.

Negotiation and auction attendance is a specialised skill-set and like all out key functions, only dedicated negotiators in our business are involved in this stage.

 

 

 

6. POST-SETTLEMENT

Once your property has settled, there are a few final activities to carry out. 1Group will continue dealing with your chosen property manager until you have a tenant or your building and trades people while we oversee the project or leasing process. We assist with depreciation tax schedules, facilitate pest control and treatment services and organise post settlement cleaning where required.

Should the property require any construction work, we can arrange this through our construction management division.
