Area information

 

Where is Lindfield Located?

Lindfield is located approximately 13 kilometres north-west of the CBD in Sydney’s prestigious Upper North Shore. It is conveniently located situated on the North Shore train line, which provides easy access to the CBD and the North Shore ‘private school belt.’

 

What Housing Types are Predominant in Lindfield? 

Freestanding homes on large quarter acre blocks are commonplace in Lindfield.  The East side of the railway line in considered more desirable than the western side, which has some steeper terrain and blocks, but expect to pay more for the privilege of having an ‘east side’ address. Housing styles vary from period freestanding Californian bungalows and Victorian and Federation style homes with exposed rafters to double storey modern executive homes. Apartments and townhouses are more concentrated around the highway corridor and also radiate out from the train station and local shops.

 

What Attracts Home Buyers and Investors to Lindfield? 

Lindfield is known as a ‘blue chip’ suburb due to a limited supply of houses on the market (0.61% compared to the Sydney Metro average of 1.09%) and constant demand from both home buyers and renters. Key reasons for Lindfield’s constant demand are its prime position at the lower end of the ‘private school belt,’ proximity to the CBD, period estates on large blocks of land in leafy, tree-lined streets and excellent public transport options. One thing to note is that much of the eastern side of the Pacific Hwy is covered by ‘conservation areas’ where the streetscape is protected, however most locals actually prefer this as it maintains the character of the area.

 

Restaurants, Shops and Amenities in Lindfield 

A wide variety of shops are situated along Pacific Highway and around the train station.  A Coles Supermarket on the Pacific Highway is open 18 hours per day, 7 days a week. Lindfield Shopping Village on the eastern side of the rail line was just completed last year and includes IGA supermarket and gourmet grocer Harris Farm Markets. All the typical cuisines including Italian, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Japanese and Modern Australian are available locally. Less common and worth trying are the local French and Persian restaurants on Pacific Hwy. Anything you can’t find locally is available a short 5-minute drive away in Chatswood at one of the many boutique stores or Westfield / Chatswood Chase Shopping Centres.

 

Sports and Fitness in Lindfield

Lindfield / East Lindfield is fortunate enough to adjoin two National Parks - Lane Cove National Park and Garrigal National Park - both of which boast an array of scenic picnic spots and walking tracks. An immensely popular and picturesque recreational park is Swain Gardens, which features a series walking paths, rose gardens, lawn areas and sandstone terraces. Sporting clubs include soccer, cricket, tennis and rugby. Lindfield is also within a short drive to both Killara and Pymble Golf Clubs.

 

Schools and Education in Lindfield

The real drawcard of Lindfield is the range of highly sought-after public and private secondary schools. Some of the most well-regarded schools in the region include Abbotsleigh, Wenona School, Pymble Ladies College (PLC), Knox Grammar School, Roseville College, Ravenswood School for Girls and Killara High School, which are ranked within the top 70 schools in the state.

 

Other local schools include Newington College Preparatory School, Highfield Preparatory, Holy Family Primary School, Masada College Primary School, Cromehurst Special School, Lindfield Primary School, Lindfield East Public School.  The University of Technology Sydney Kuring-gai campus is also nearby.

 

What can my money buy in Lindfield?

The median house price in Lindfield is currently $2.6 million, which is down from $2.8 million a year ago. Historically, Lindfield has not had more than one year of substantial negative growth though, so prices are expected to turn around this year if lending restrictions continue to be relaxed. Currently, the median house price will buy you a renovated 70’s or 80’s four bedroom, two bathroom house on over 1,000sqm of land west of Pacific Hwy. It will likely have plenty of privacy and a bush outlook.

 

Lindfield apartments are now selling around $1 million dollars, which is broadly flat on 12 months ago. This price will buy you a modern, ground-floor two bedroom, two bathroom unit with parking within walking distance of Coles and the train station. Many of these apartments have not experienced much price growth since new, so they are comparatively good value now, although future capital growth is likely to be more limited than houses.

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.
