The vendor received blanket approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) for the sale of apartments at Botanica Balwyn to non-residents of Australia in mid-2014, allowing foreigners to purchase apartments at the project without the need to apply for FIRB Approval. Hence, there is no Foreign Purchaser Additional Duty to be paid by the purchaser, which means a savings of 7% of the full contract price. There’s never been a better time to invest in Melbourne than now.

To find out more about this unique opportunity come and meet with the team from Melbourne on 25th and 26th February, 2017 at the Radisson Hotel.

A solicitor will be in attendance to explain the relatively straightforward sales process; a finance broker will be there to assess available credit facilities; and a property consultant will be on hand to discuss the project and the availability with you. As they say in Australia, first in, best dressed!
