Lloyd and the team at Aus Property Professionals are seasoned buyers’ agents, with offices in Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane.
Choosing the right investment property comes down to knowing what you need, knowing what you can afford, and knowing all the market factors in play when you’re ready to buy. A good buyers’ agent can achieve this for you.

Our clients often just do not know where to start when it comes to purchasing an investment property. Working in multiple markets means we can provide advice independently and have access to many investment tools to understand the feasibility of the current market.
Working as a Buyers’ Agent in Newcastle, I often get access to properties that you would never have known about, including private sales and properties yet to be listed. Many properties that are sold never hit the public market.
A Buyers’ Agent can also mitigate the risk of purchasing the wrong investment property as we are highly experienced, trained, and emotionally independent from the purchase. Out judgement is not biased and based on thorough research and experience in the market.
You can easily save money through employing a Buyers’ Agent, as getting access to their research will save you a lot of time and money. You will be able to understand the market a lot better and avoid purchasing the wrong property which could end up costing you thousands. Our job is ensure you get the right property at the right price.
You will also be able to save time and money through getting early access to growth areas. A Buyers’ Agent has access to valuable market knowledge, including the ability to identify new or upcoming ‘hotspots’.

Newcastle High Growth Areas
The harbour city of Newcastle, 160 kilometres north of Sydney has been attracting significant interest from investors. House prices have continued to stay strong even though Sydney has peaked.
Newcastle, particularly, has excellent prospects and is getting strong rental returns. The city also has all the major growth drivers of a capital city but at a much cheaper price point. The affordability factor and the potential to manufacture growth through duplex developments and granny flats are a big factor in the area, bringing investors from other capital cities, especially Sydney.
There is a lot of new infrastructure including the new light rail and significant areas of rezoning across the city.
Hotspotting founder Terry Ryder put Newcastle on his top five “boom towns” nationally due to a large pipeline of residential and non-residential construction.
