FAQ- Foreign Property Buyers in Melbourne

Buy like a local.
Buy with independent, impartial local insights.
Buy quality local properties which are never sold overseas.

Are all buyers agents in Melbourne the same?

No.  Did you know that not all property buyer experts are licensed?  As licensed and insured property agents, buyer's agents are bound by the same code of conduct and legislation to ensure their clients receive appropriate home buying services and protection.

However, there are many unlicensed buyers agents who claim to be property investment experts and charge fees for their "property mentoring programs" and "good investment properties." 

These fake buyers agents receive substantial commissions from the developers they recommend, which influence their recommendations.

This raises questions about the neutrality of their advice.  With licensed buyer agents, it is illegal to receive commission from the seller and charge the buyer a fee for it.  This ensures that buyers receive impartial and independent advice on properties they buy.

Choose licensed buyer agents like Concierge Buyers Advocates to ensure that you receive the best possible advice and protection.

Is it worth investing in Melbourne properties?

Investing in property can be a lucrative and consistent high-performing investment option.  With the right property, you can see decent returns.  According to CoreLogic, a property data and analytics provider, Melbourne's property market has had an average annual increase of 6.7% over the last 25 years, even during major meltdowns like the 2008-2009 Global Financial Crisis and the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic crisis.

Compared to a fixed-term savings plan that pays only a 1.5% (2018) interest rate, investing in the right investment property can potentially grow your assets up to 5 times faster than putting your money in a bank.
