Best Brisbane Buyers Agent
Alistair Kelsall is the best Brisbane Buyers Agent you will find. Why he 20 years of hands-on experience working in many different areas of the Brisbane property market. From property finance to investment property education to financial planning to real estate. You will be hard-pressed to find another Brisbane buyers agent with his level of experience and skills.
Many years working in mortgages he has sat in hundreds of homes throughout the South East Queensland region, met the people who reside in these homes, conducted inspections and valuations of these properties over the years and has watched the property market change. This level of experience gives him first-hand knowledge of suburbs demographics from experience, not reports.
Being so immersed in the Brisbane Property Market the market as a Brisbane Buyers Agent he can identify the suburbs that have not seen the massive increases in property values other suburbs have experienced and can accurately predict the next Brisbane Hot Spot, not the ones that are hot now and this is the biggest advantage you will have when working with Alistair Kelsall.
The real secret to investing in the Brisbane property market is to not invest in the suburbs that are popular now. The location you want to pick is the one that is going to be popular in the future. In effect, you want to purchase a property that is at the bottom or lower half of the property price cycle. By doing this you stand to make far more in capital growth in the short term rather than buying a property that is at the top end of the property price cycle.
In order to do this, you need to be able to accurately identify suburbs and properties that are going to experience increased market pressure in the future, not now. There are some suburbs in Brisbane that will always be cheap, they might sound like a bargain but you need to understand the region and the demographics. Take for example Ipswitch, for as long as I can remember, Ipswitch has always been promoted as a good region to invest in. But after all these years property prices have no increased in line with the rest of Brisbane and the simple reason is the amount of available land and the number of ongoing developments.
For not much more capital you can invest in a 4 bedroom brick and tile home on over 400m2 of land within 15 kilometres of the Brisbane CBD for around $500K with a rent return of around $460 per week. You end up with a cash flow positive investment property that has the potential for significant capital growth in the next 5 years. This is where the skills of the Best Brisbane Buyers Agent comes in and skills you will be hardpressed to find in another Brisbane Buyers Agent.
In the case 0f this type of property, there are new estates being developed in the outer lying suburbs of this particular target suburb. The homes are being sold for around the same amount but and this is where a good analytical mind comes in, these new homes are being built on land sizes of 300m2 or in some cases even less. Now if the value of a property is based upon its land value. Then it makes logical sense that in the future, good quality homes on larger blocks of land will see an increase in market pressure which will then lead to an increase in property values. Remember property investing is a long term investment option and we are looking 5 years ahead into the future. This is the type of knowledge and skills Alistair Kelsall the Best Brisbane Buyers Agent brings to you.
Don’t Listen to the Media
If you’re talking to a Brisbane Buyers Agent or a Real Estate Agent and they mention locations that you have heard of because the media or people are saying it’s a good area to invest in, which makes you feel good about what you are being told. Take a step back and remember this golden rule to property investing. “Don’t Listen to the Media” because everyone else and they will all be targeting properties in the same area as you which increases market pressure which increase property prices and you end up buying a property at the top of the Property Price Cycle.

Off Market Properties
The true skill of the Best Brisbane Buyers Agent is being able to source a property that is not available to the general public. These are called Off Market Properties. By finding Brisbane properties for his clients this way he cuts out the competition from other potential buyers and can secure a property at a very good price. There are many recent examples in his Brisbane Buyers Agent Portfolio where you will see he has been able to purchase very good property at around $15,000 to $20,000 below the asking price. He can do this because he is an expert negotiator, knows the value of a property and learns the driving factors behind the sale. It might be that someone is in financial hardship and needs to sell fast, in this case, the conditions of the contract become more important than the price.
Virtual Property Tours
