Why Local Representation Is Important When Investing in Australia

Foreign Investment can be a tricky and confusing process. Having professional representation to be your eyes and ears on the ground are pivotal in ensuring you get the best deal, as well as follow all the legal requirements of the country you are investing in.

At ARE Property we are your sounding voice and safety net to ensure your property purchase is smooth and stress-free.

Originally from Singapore, Treasha moved here 30 years ago. In Melbourne, Treasha works with accountants and fund managers to provide their clients with Property Advice.

Today, we’re going to tap into her years of experience and pose commonly asked questions from our viewers.

Many investors from Malaysia don’t realise the importance of Professional Representation

Let us help you understand the value and importance of professional representation in Australia when you're looking for your next big investment.

Save Time

Many first-time investors adopt the Least Efficient investment research approach. Unless you know specifically what you're looking for it can be difficult to navigate through the amount of information out there.

When you make contact with numerous agents you will be overburdened with a number of brochures. These brochures don't address the vital investment decision factors which such as:

• Demographic studies
• Local Demand & Supply factors
• Future Infrastructure planning

You can delegate that part of the process to experts who can help you save months of research and know that the advice you are receiving is accurate and reliable.
