Buying with Confidence Using Halim's Signature Approach
For most of us, buying a property is one of our largest commitments in life. We need to be careful and prudent when purchasing a property. There are many aspects that we need to lookout for and consider. With Halim’s consultation and service, people from all walks of life will receive genuine and sincere advice. Halim has incorporated a system to assist buyers to make an informed and prudent decision on their property purchase.
A Unique Combination
of Data & Research coupled with a Financial Health Check and Project & Unit Selection
Halim uses a 3 prong approach to provide accurate, holistic and prudent advice for his clients. This approach has been designed to be applicable to clients from all walks of life.
The application of data and research on properties provide a clear picture on the property types and locations that will meet the client’s needs . With the advent of digitalisation and technology, there is an abundant amount of data and research that is available. However, as Halim is well versed with data and research techniques, he will present information that is applicable and relevant to clients.
The detailed financial health check enables clients to understand their financial position and allocate their finances for their property purchase comfortably. Prudent purchase of a property is essential, as we have to account for multiple unforeseen circumstances in our financial position.
In addition, when we add the aspect of project and unit selection to the decision making process, clients will derive the best value for their money and be in a good position to enjoy capital appreciation.
Projects that are similar in type and location do transact at different prices and it requires experience and knowledge to shortlist the project that will provide potential upside to the buyer. A little known fact is that different units on the same stack or floor can have very different selling prices, even though the developer or seller might price them similarly. Halim will show you real transactions that prove that project and unit selection are vital to extract best value and potential capital appreciation.
All in all, clients will be in a position to purchase properties that meet their needs, match their finances and offer future capital appreciation opportunities.
