3 Reasons Why Renters Get Stuck In The Rent Trap
 #1 - They Don't Realise They Can Own Their Home
Most renters don’t realise they have the capacity to get into their own home - or don't know where to start. 
The reality is that most people who earn an income are able to get into their own home, often for less than they are paying in rent. 
#2 - They Think They Need To Save More Money
Most renters think they need to save 5% - 20% for a deposit. They don’t realise there are low or no deposit options available. 
And during a property boom, you can miss out on increased capital growth by waiting to save more.
#3 -They Don't Know Where The Market Is At
The Perth market has been relatively flat for 10 years. Renting during this period has worked out quite well for most people. 
The indicators are now pointing to the start of a new property boom.  And renting during a boom market means high competition for good rental properties, increasing rents and more pressure from landlords on tenants.

About Me
Professional Property Developer, 
Real Estate Investor
 and House and Land Specialist
If you are renting at the moment, you are exactly where I was 17 years ago when I made the worst property mistake of my life. A mistake that cost me nearly $300,000 in 5 years! 

You see, when I arrived in Perth in 2002, I knew very little about the local property market. I didn't know where the market was at or how to go about getting into a home of my own or  how much of a deposit I needed. I decided to rent for a while and wait for the market to drop. 

But... the market never dropped; in fact Perth houses went from a medium price of less than $200,000 in 2002 to nearly $500,000 in 2007! So while my friends were literally making money while they slept in the comfort of their own new homes, I was battling rent increases every year, rent inspections and bad service from a landlord whose mortgage I was paying off.  

10 years ago, I made a career change and became a professional property developer.  Since then, I've helped hundreds of people get into a home of their own and managed my own successful family developments. The Perth housing market has stayed almost flat sine 2007, but now is the first time in over a decade that I am extremely excited about the potential of Perth's property market. There are now significant indicators that the market is set for its next boom

My goal  is to make the process of building your own new home easy and to help you start living your life in your own brand new home.  I will share with you why now is the best time to stop renting and through my 4 stage process, help get you into a brand new home of your own before the next property train leaves the station. 
What People Are Saying
"Theo helped us get into our own property. We never thought it was possible because we saw 5 others about building a home and they said it wasn't possible without $10,000 to $20,000 in the bank. 
We were referred by a friend and met up with Theo.
Theo talked us through what we wanted in our home. When we went to see the properties, we sat in front of every property and he discussed with us how the house would sit on it, which side the garage would be and which side we would use as the entertainment area.
The best block we put in an offer on it. He did all the work for us.
The property is 500m from the beach in an awesome location... so we're very excited to go and build our home there.
I would highly recommend you make an appointment with Theo and go and see him because it is possible.“
- Sonja and Johan, Dawesville

“Theo has been amazing from day one to work with. He is professional, polite and really friendly. He is very efficient when it comes to finding available land and within a few days I was already putting on a deposit for the block I wanted. Nothing has been too hard for Theo; I've made multiple changes to my plan which wasn't a drama and no query has gone unanswered. He is filled with knowledge and made me feel at ease when it came to the hard decisions. I'm a first home buyer and I'm glad I met Theo because he has made this journey an easier one. Down to earth, organised and intelligent man. Highly recommended!"
