When asked who your influences are, your mind probably turns straight to music.  But there’s a new kid on the block that’s impacting our lives like never before.  And that’s the powerful persuasion of Instagram.

It’s now commonplace for people to see something shiny on social media and feel they immediately have to have it.  Because the leggy model has it.  Or George Clooney has it.  It’s usually things like clothing, jewellery, or the odd gadget.  Possibly even a car or holiday.  And you might be willing to part with a few hundred bucks to have what the elite have.  But would you hand over a cool $17 mill for an item you randomly saw on Insta?

That’s certainly what one chap did.

Burton Estate Agents recently posted a short video on Instagram of a South Yarra penthouse up for grabs.  They thought at best it might create some curiosity.  But little did they know that it would catch the eye of an on-the-spot buyer.  What’s more, he even scored himself a discount by being able to knock a lazy $5 mill off the asking price.

The inner-city property spans a whopping 729 square metres and has some of the most enviable views in Melbourne.  It comprises 3 bedrooms + study, 5 bathrooms, kitchen (with stellar appliances), butler’s pantry, sauna & steam room, gym & yoga room, a wine cellar, rooftop bar, private pool, and even a cinema!

While that all sounds like paradise, it’s undoubtedly a mere pipe dream for the average homebuyer.  We’d all love the luxury of being able to afford such a casual expense, but most of us struggle to find even the most modest dwelling.

That’s where GSA comes in.  Though we’re not suggesting we can set you up with a multi-million dollar mansion, we can help you secure a much better lifestyle.  We want Aussie homebuyers to be able to afford better properties and pay off their mortgages sooner.
