Area information

 

Location and Transport Links in Haberfield

Haberfield is a leafy, waterfront suburb in the Inner West of Sydney (7km west of the CBD). It has excellent access to the CBD via light rail or buses along Parramatta Road, although these services can be busy during peak times (particularly the former). Summer Hill station provides another option for residents near the southern end of the suburb. A new train line (‘Sydney Metro West’) has also been proposed that will run from the CBD to Parramatta with stops in the Bay area and possibly Five Dock. WestConnex is also finally making visible progress and Haberfield will benefit greatly from this massive infrastructure project. Due to its central location, access to the CBD, Parramatta, Sydney Airport, South West Sydney and the North Shore will be a cinch once complete.

 

Property Types in Haberfield

Stunning period homes with picket fences and gardens to match in tree lined streets are standard fare in Haberfield. While many are heritage listed, most have been brought up to date internally to meed modern family preferences. Because many houses are freestanding, they also sit on larger than average block sizes for the Inner West and often have a lovely rear yard for the kids rather than having to go down to the local park (although that is certainly a possibility as well with multiple options on offer!).

 

Shops and Restaurants in Haberfield

Haberfield is known for its Italian cuisine at its small but charming village on the corner of Ramsay and Dalhousie Streets. Several restaurants and cafés are highly rated and swell with visitors from surrounding areas on the weekend. There is also an IGA supermarket, delicatessen, pharmacy, butcher, bakery (and even a fresh pasta manufacturer!) so all your basic shopping needs are taken care of locally. Further restaurant and shopping options can be found in neighbouring Leichhardt (including Woolworths and Aldi at MarketPlace Leichhardt).

 

Schools and Educational Facilities in Haberfield

One of the most desirable aspects of Haberfield is its access to the highly regarded Haberfield Public School. Other local options include De La Salle College (Boys), Domremy College (girls), Trinity Grammar, Rosebank College and St Columba’s Catholic Primary School (Leichhardt).

 

Recreation and Other Amenities in Haberfield

Haberfield’s very fortunate position provides direct access to Sydney Harbour and the popular ‘Bay Run’ path via Richard Murden Reserve and Hawthorne Canal Reserve (the latter of which has free tennis courts and dogs can run off their leash in permitted areas). Haberfield Tennis centre provides another option if you would like to play competitively. Ashfield, Robson and Timbrell Parks provide yet more options for having a picnic or relaxing (the latter two are positioned on the waterfront).

 

Why people live in Haberfield?

Due to the lack of turnover in the suburb and its access to highly desirable schools, Haberfield is always in demand from investors, prospective tenants and home buyers. The vacancy rate is healthy at around 2% and capital growth has historically been quite strong at 6.2% over the last 10 years, although it has slowed over the past year (along with the rest of Sydney) to around 2%.

Nick Taylor-Fick

PRINCIPAL - BUYERS' ADVOCATE

INNER WEST, NORTHERN SUBURBS, HILLS DISTRICT

With over 25 years’ experience as a qualified property valuer and buyers’ agent, Nick’s extensive knowledge of intrinsic property values and his highly personal approach to buying property ensures you peace of mind and confidence in finding the ideal  property.  Nick has an in-depth knowledge of Sydney’s Inner West,  Northern Suburbs.

Speak to Nick

"My wife and I are busy professionals and had been planning to buy our first home for years. We finally had our deposit saved when COVID hit. During this time of uncertainty we weren't sure whether to postpone our dream of buying our first home. It was at this time we decided to use a buyer's agent. We teamed up with Nick Taylor-Fick from Propertybuyer and found him to be a steady calm presence. Nick guided us through the whole process from developing our search criteria, to shortlisting options, all the way through to exchange (all of which happened within a month). He provided us with expert advice, asked the right questions and very quickly surmised what we were after. He was patient, showing us various types of houses across different locations, all the while managing our expectations. As we refined our vision, Nick found the home we wanted and negotiated everything to our satisfaction. We found him responsive and engaging, a true fount of property information. I would recommend Nick to any property novices such as ourselves!"

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a buyers’ agent?

You will save yourself money, time and stress when you engage a professional buyers’ agent to help you with your next investment property purchase. You will be empowered with the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about the value of a property without all of the sales “hype” often associated with property purchases – we protect you from making an emotional decision. You will have the benefit of our extensive research and analysis into past sales and comparable market data and will be protected from paying too much. You may also gain access to properties not yet advertised, otherwise known as “silent listings”.

Investors will gain access to our wide network of excellent investment opportunities and also get the inside knowledge of the best areas to invest. As property investors ourselves we understand the strict criteria required to buy high performing properties.

Our testimonials describe the ways we have been able to add value to our many clients. Most of our increasing client base stems from glowing referrals given by clients who have been impressed with the value and service we provide.

 

Does a buyers’ agent need to have a real estate background?

Yes.  Rich Harvey, Director of Propertybuyer and his team have the expertise, knowledge and real estate background to deliver what they promise – many of the team are ex-real estate agents that have switched sides.  Rich is a property investor himself, with a Masters in Economics, a Diploma of Property and is a Licensed Real Estate Buyers’ Agent. He is also a Member of the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales. If you are looking for a buyers’ agent team with exceptional qualifications and over 60 years combined experience, that understands property investment analysis, market trends, and can think creatively and intuitively, then the Propertybuyer team is your smart choice. Read our testimonials and you will be impressed by the results – not only with investors, but also home buyers and corporate clients.

 

Is A Buyers’ Agent worth the money?

Yes! We regularly save clients far more than the fee we charge, through our understanding of the property market and our skilled negotiation techniques. We offer a fixed fee service. The advantage of the fixed fee structure is that you only pay the same fee regardless of the price of the property. There are three key areas you will get great value for money by engaging Propertybuyer:

1. Saving Time:

  • Reduce the time spent searching – You will need to look at between 50 to 100 properties to get a true understanding of the market.
  • Most buyers take between 6 to 12 months (or more) to buy – we can cut down the process to under 60 days
  • Lost leisure and family time due to searching and attending inspections on weekends
  • Time wasted at work calling real estate agents
  • The time it takes you to get full market knowledge

2. Saving Money:

  • Don’t risk making an emotional decision and pay too much
  • Negotiating is an art – we know the tricks of the trade to secure a property at the lowest possible price
  • Leverage your knowledge by tapping into ours
  • Get a professional evaluation done so you have confidence to pay the right price

3. Saving Stress:

  • Remove the stress and pressure of dealing with real estate agents in your search
  • Get the upper hand with a buyers agent by your side
  • Buy with confidence knowing you are getting totally independent advice
  • Remove the frustration of being constantly outbid at auction

A buyers’ agent can save you a packet of money if they are experienced, knowledgeable and have your best interests at heart. They can take the emotion out of the negotiation and auction process and give you accurate advice on property values. They should have an extensive database of agent contacts to help you find off-market properties.

 

How Do I find A Buyers’ Agent?

Apart from searching online, ask a local selling agent if they have seen a good buyers agent in action. You can also ask family, friends and work colleagues about their experience with using buyers agents.

An important question to ask a buyers agent is whether they are truly “exclusive” or “independent”. If they accept sales commission from vendors or developers then they cannot be classified as “independent” as they are acting in the interests of the seller. Only deal with a licensed buyers agent (you can check license via the Office of Fair Trading in each state) and one that is a recognised member of your state Real Estate Institute and the Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia.

There are seven factors to consider when selecting a good buyers agent.

  1. Industry experience - ask how long the buyers agent has been operating?
  2. Market coverage - what geographic specialisation do they have?
  3. Results oriented - ask about case studies and testimonials from past clients - what have they achieved?
  4. Network and contacts - can your buyers agent access off market properties easily?
  5. Research system - ask what due diligence and research systems they have in place to evaluate properties and provide real time market insights.
  6. Credentials - check licencing, qualifications and affiliations and if they have won awards.
  7. Cost - confirm the fee structure and check they don’t get kickbacks from agents.

 

Is it affordable to use a buyers’ agent?

Yes. We typically save our clients far more than our fee in the transaction by negotiating well. We assist property buyers of all budgets, saving you money by doing extensive research and analysis, looking at comparable sales and market data, and by negotiating hard to secure the best price, terms and conditions possible. You will make an informed choice and will be confident that you have bought well, whatever your budget. It’s a small investment to make when you consider the savings you will make on your property purchase!

 

Are buyers’ agents fees tax deductible?

If you are purchasing a property for investment purposes, the cost of using a buyers’ agent is generally tax deductible (forms part of the acquisition or “cost base”). Check with your accountant to see if the fee would be tax deductible in your case. Unfortunately you cannot claim the fee as a tax deduction if the property is purchased to live in.

 

Do you offer any guarantees with your service?

Propertybuyer is currently the most awarded Buyers Agency in Australia, and this public scrutiny is an unbiased testament to our integrity, value and quality of service.

We guarantee not to waste your valuable time sourcing inappropriate properties. We will deflect all the stress and detail and save you months of endless searching. We will spend time with you up front so that we clearly understand your needs and will target the search based on agreed preferences. With our help, you will save time, money and stress on your next property purchase. You will gain access to more properties, be better informed about comparable sales, the true value of a property and capital growth projections for the area, and you will make a more informed decision. When you decide on the right property, we will negotiate for you so you will be able to make a rational decision about price without the stress and pressure of dealing with real estate agents or having to negotiate.

 

Do you have professional indemnity insurance?

We have professional indemnity insurance to $4 million.

 

What is the process and how long will it take?

Our average turnaround time for investors is around 30 days and for home buyers between 40 to 65 days. After the initial meeting, where our services are further explained, questions are answered and your “buyers brief” is established, an engagement fee is paid (this amount varies according to the service you choose). Once your finance is pre-approved, the engagement fee is paid, and you are ready to buy, the search begins. We conduct thorough research and then present you with a shortlist of properties. The decision to buy is then yours.

 

If I engage the services of propertybuyer, will you guarantee to find me a property?

Yes – as long as your buyers brief is realistic. We guarantee to give you personal and professional service and a detailed analysis on each property we evaluate, based on your specific criteria. At our initial meeting, we will listen carefully to find out your exact requirements. We will advise you before you engage us if your property brief is unrealistic. You will also need to have your finances ready or be pre-approved for a loan before the search can begin. Once these have been established, the search can take as little as a week (up to an average of about 4-6 weeks) depending on your wishlist and the market conditions.

We work with you in partnership to help you achieve your goals quickly and efficiently. You may cancel the agreement with notice in writing.

 

What happens if I change my mind on an area or a type of property once I engage you? Do I have to pay another engagement fee?

We will always be working in your best interests and realise that your ideas about the type of property you want may change. When we meet initially to discuss your “buyers brief”, we will work hard to ensure that your wishlist is achievable and also realistic, so the likelihood of changing your mind is reduced. However, if you change the initial brief significantly, there may be a review of the fee, and an additional fee would be charged to cover the time already spent searching. We will work with you to make sure you are completely happy with your next property purchase, even if you change your mind.

 

 

Buyers' agent testimonials near to Haberfield

Keno & Melanie

Buyer type: Home Buyer
Buyers' agent: Nick Taylor-Fick

"Having worked in the professional service environment, we knew and understood the value of engaging an expert. So we decided to engage with Propertybuyer based on three things.

The reputation business had in the market, we understand that the business had won multiple awards within the industry, its media presence - I have listened to a number of Rich’s podcasts so you are well known within the industry. And obviously the accreditation behind that as well."
