Dan Sofo was our Buyers Agent during a very hot market period where it was extremely challenging to secure a property. Dan knows his business, he knows real estate agents and how to negotiate with them. Furthermore he is able to snap off-market properties which is a big plus in a competitive market.
Alexandre Girard, Coogee
Dan is a Buyer's Agent and is consummate professional - really knows his stuff - but also a really lovely guy and such a pleasure to work with. He listened, adjusted the brief when necessary and communicated exceptionally well. Worth every cent!
Erin Wilson, Bondi
Plenty of Buyers Agents don't negotiate for their clients - instead they just find properties and make the buyer pay top dollar. Dan cross examines, executes with absolute precision and leaves every last cent not needed to be spent for his clients in their account

    1. Key considerations when buying property In Sydney's east?

    When buying property in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, several key considerations can help you make an informed decision:


    Determine your budget and stick to it. Property prices in the Eastern suburbs tend to be higher compared to other areas of Sydney, so it’s essential to know your financial limits and get pre-approved for a mortgage if necessary. 


    Consider which specific suburb within the Eastern suburbs best suits your needs and lifestyle preferences. Factors to consider include proximity to amenities such as schools, public transportation, shopping centers, parks, beaches, and the CBD. 

    Property Type

    Decide on the type of property that meets your requirements, whether it’s a house, apartment, townhouse, or a unit in a high-rise building. Consider factors such as the size of the property, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, outdoor space, and parking availability.

    Condition of the property

    Assess the condition of the property carefully. Consider factors such as age, maintenance needs, renovations required, and potential for future appreciation. A thorough inspection by a qualified building inspector is recommended to identify any hidden issues.

    Growth Potential

    Research the historical and projected growth trends in property prices for the specific suburb you’re interested in within the Eastern suburbs. Consider factors such as planned infrastructure developments, gentrification, and other market dynamics that could impact property values in the future.

    Strata Considerations

    If purchasing a unit or apartment, review the strata report carefully. This report provides information on the financial health of the strata scheme, maintenance history, by-laws, and any upcoming special levies or building works.

    Legal and Regulatory Aspects

    Understand the legal and regulatory requirements associated with purchasing property in Sydney, including contract terms, stamp duty, conveyancing fees, and any applicable zoning regulations or planning.

    Engage Professionals

    Seek advice from experienced real estate agents, mortgage brokers, solicitors, and building inspectors to guide you through the buying process and ensure that you make informed decisions.


    By carefully considering these factors and conducting thorough research, you can make a well-informed decision before buying.
