Real Estate Rescue Graduate

Doncaster, VIC


The property is a deceased estate which had only one beneficiary. This Doncaster deal was found through a Real Estate Agent that went on for auction. The graduates had initially bid on it; however, the owner decided not to go ahead with it. Three to four weeks later the owner came back, and after a hard negotiation, the Graduates was able to obtain the property at the price they were after well below market value just for the land ($180,000) discount. The property strategy is for a renovate & flip dedicated to a higher-end market.
