What is a Buyer's Agent?

Expert Guidance | Your Personal Property Advisor

Here is a property investment secret.  It is a very well kept secret... until now.  And it is also one of the most frequently asked question. 

"What is a buyer's agent? What does a buyer's agent do?" 

If you have $100,000, and you would like to invest in equities.  You would engage the services of a financial planner or a fund manager, wouldn't you?  So, why would you buy a $1million property without seeking professional advice?

Successful property investors like Donald Trump and Warren Buffett do not buy their own properties.  They invest in the services of buyer advocates or buyer agents.  

Professional property investors know that buying property is a very time consuming process which many successful investors do not have.  It requires a lot of due diligence, research, planning, feasibility studies / modelling, growth considerations, searching, shortlisting properties, and doing on-site inspections, etc.

Through our 25+ years of experience in working with buyers, we have found that many buyers:

❌ do not have a plan

❌ do not have enough time to source for the property

❌ fear overpaying for the property

❌ do not fully understand what is involved in due diligence

❌ do not like to deal with real estate agents

​❌ do not realise selling real estate agents are bound by law to look after the interest of the seller

The secret to property buying?  For a small fee, professional investors invest in buyer agents and they take advantage of:

✅ reduced inaction cost

✅ simplified purchasing process

✅ faster purchasing process

✅ deeper insights into the area

✅ leveling the playing field against selling agents

✅ confidence, comfort, knowing they finally have an agent working for them.

They know the quality and savings from the services of a buyer agent more than make up for the cost of the service.  In Melbourne, using the services of a buyer agent can potentiall save you over $100,000!  Find out why.

Did you also know?

50%-75% of the properties sold and bought are not listed. Buyer Agents also have access to off-market properties, and advanced notice from selling agents about up-coming listings.  These are valuable lists of properties which are not available to the public, and this means the chances of securing a good off-market property is higher.
