Client Background: Ken and Nelly are busy corporate professionals with two children. They were already investing in shares and wanted to diversify into property investment.
Where they were: They were concerned about making mistakes with correct property selection. They also wanted something with an upside. So even though they weren’t going to do anything to the property, longer term they could redevelop with multiple dwellings. They also wanted to buy something low maintenance (so a relatively young house)
What was important to them: Their goal was to work towards financial security, stability and control.
