Our Thoughts
As we discussed, we generally look for properties where we can add value to either immediately or in the future. This property presents the opportunity - in a grand way! A DA approved property with well thought out and modern designs to suit your needs.
To buy this property, as you know, we need to pull the trigger and go in with a very strong and enticing offer. The offer needs to be unconditional, above their expectations and immediate. 
Our recommendation is $1.41M purchase price stated with best and final. We don't have time to wait until the auction, nor do we want to nibble about with this property. There is genuine interest and the agent is hinting at other parties playing the early ball game too.
Further discussion needs to happen around the construction and execution of the approved build. We can have this talk once we feel comfortable that the property has been secured.  As you know, Milk Chocolate offer a Project Concierge service. The service is designed to take the stress away and manage all trades and contractors on your behalf.
