Buying Houses Australia

What Our Clients Have To Say


Matt Gordon Purchased rose bay Sydney

" Buyers agent Shane insists on giving you bang for your buck and ultimately save you money and time in sourcing, negotiating and purchasing property. Investing in bricks and mortar is never an easy task and you want to get it right as mistakes are costly. The whole process is considerably more complicated when you are working in the mining industry in W.A and you are searching for an investment property in Sydney.”

You should never underestimate the power of a buyer's agent. I had been looking to buy a property for over twelve months, researching the Sydney market, reading articles, flying in and out to attend inspections and making formal offers but I was never able to close the deal. Combined with working long hours, feeling geographically out of the loop and with limited time to talk to agents on the phone I made little progress. I felt completely blind, I didn't know the order or the steps needed to get a deal over the line. I was keen to try working with a Buyers agent and Shane Clinton from Buying Houses Australia turned it all around. It was all so much easier, stress free and friendly they walked me through the whole buying process, which increased my confidence. They kept me updated and were constantly sourcing fantastic properties that I would never have found without their expertise. I am now the owner of a harbour-side unit in Rose Bay.

Without a doubt I would recommend Shane as trustworthy Buyers Agents. They took care of the contracts, arranged building inspections, liaise with the solicitors and real estate agents. I could contact them at any hour day or night regardless of the interstate time difference, ask them all sorts of questions and I never felt under any pressure to make a quick decision.

On my behalf they found me a unit with a great rental yield and from settlement there is already a tenant ready to move in and pay my rent. The unit is light filled with huge windows that showcase sparkling Sydney Harbour. I have a pool and beach out the front, a kayak in the boatshed and a ferry around the corner. I am looking forward to many New Years Eve parties watching the fireworks from my front lawn. I said to my Dad it's the sort of place I'd be proud to own forever!"

" Our first interaction with Shane was our first investment property. We had heard about Shane through a friend and knew he was the Sydney property guy. After finding a property we thought fit our criteria a friend recommended we contact Shane at Buying Houses Australia. Shane was incredible! He has such a wealth of knowledge across all areas of the property arena, its hard to describe, he's one of those guys that is entirely in charge. When he speaks to agents, they listen. The property we wished to acquire was heading to a very hot auction. Shane advised us that this particular property would be best acquired prior to auction. From there Shane took over, he put us in contact with an excellent property lawyer to work on the finer details, he worked out all of the rental return ratios with us and started negotiating. We secured our first investment apartment well, well under what we projected our highest bid would have been at auction, in fact later we rented out the same place with the agent that sold it to us. He revealed that we paid about $50k below what our competition later revealed they would pay at auction. Phew! Shane's fees were so minimal and he saved us a huge amount of money. 

We have since purchased another investment property in our local area and Shane held our hand all the way through it. Shane is currently helping my sister buy her dream home.

I wouldn't make a property move without him!


JOSH & CHAUNTELLE READY purchased darling point

" Shane from Buying Houses Australia was recommended to help achieve our goal and minimize the stress factor.

At our first meeting Shane listened to and discussed what we were looking for. They made some suggestions about how we could achieve our goals. We were impressed with their professionalism and approach.

We decided to engage BHA and our emphasis was on securing a good property as quickly as possible as the market was getting very hot. Over the following weeks they short listed suitable properties, took us to viewings, gave us accurate price guidance for the ones we liked, conducted strata inspections and managed to secure us a great property pre-auction.

Having secured our new property they didn’t stop there. Shane liased with our solicitor and mortgage broker, prepared documents on our behalf and ensured the whole settlement process went smoothly.

We would definitely use Buying Houses Australia again and have no hesitation in recommending Shane at BHA.

" I have used Shane on 2 occasions. Recently the acquisition of a large block I wish to develop.

Shane's knowledge of all different facets of real estate is nothing short of profound. He is so willingly to answer the phone to any questions I have.

I would not even consider buying property in this crazy Sydney market without talking to Shane first.

I can unequivocally recommend his services. He will save you time and most importantly money!

" Searching for a future home in Australia can be difficult and frustrating when living overseas. My decision to enlist Buying Houses Australia to assist in this venture definitely made the process easier.

Initially, Shane helped me more accurately define the sort of home I was looking for, and from there, was able to select a number of suitable properties from which I could choose. Having him do all the pre-assessing in person saved me valuable time and effort, and I felt confident that we had the same idea of what I needed.

There was never any pressure to buy something that I was not totally happy with, and Shane was at all times professional and accommodating. I have also appreciated the excellent follow-up care and Shane's suggestions and contacts regarding rental and building issues have proved very helpful.

I am thrilled with my purchase and would happily recommend Shane's services to anyone thinking of buying real estate but finding the task overwhelming. My experience has certainly been a worry-free and rewarding one.

We retained Shane to negotiate the purchase of our first home.

Throughout the process Shane told us exactly what to do, when to do it, and why.

Without Shane, we would have either missed out on the property, or paid tens of thousands of dollars more than we did.

On a number of occasions, his advice was very different to what we would have done – we would have made some big mistakes.
