The Director of Kitty & Miles, Kitty Parker, isn’t just a Buyers Agent, she’s also an experienced investor. While building her own investment portfolio, she gained first-hand knowledge of what it’s like be in the shoes of a buyer. Through trial and error, she became familiar with everything involved in buying and managing an investment property. It’s this experience that you’ll want on your side to save you time, money and stress when you’re purchasing your investment property.
Whether you’re seeking an investment property with a solid income or a property with excellent capital growth, you can be confident with Kitty & Miles by your side – all of our investment properties appraisals are driven by real time data. We have expertise in statistical analysis and data interpretation, so we can make sure that you’re getting value for money.
Whether you’re a seasoned investor or a first timer, you’ll be aware of the many different buying strategies. You may want to buy, hold and rent it out, with a view to long term capital growth. Within this strategy, you can have a negatively geared property, a positively geared property or a neutral cash flow property. Or maybe you’ll want to buy, renovate and sell – the flipping option. Or buy, renovate and hold. No matter what strategy you choose, we can support your buying journey.
We can share our knowledge of the property market cycles around the country – yes there are submarkets that you may be better investing your hard-earned cash in. The days of only investing in your own backyard are long gone.
