Buyer’s agents are becoming more popular in Australia, but there are still questions around the value of using one. You should ask yourself: How valuable are your time and money? 

Finding the right property can take many months of research, inspecting properties and following up with calls to lots of different real estate agents. And when you do finally find a property that you feel meets your requirements, how do you know the right price to pay and whether the property will perform well over time? There is a lot at stake when buying a property. Using a buyer’s agent who specialises in buying property is the most effective way to ensure that you do not overpay and are successful in the highly competitive property market.  

Here are some reasons why you should use a buyer’s agent for your property purchase:  

  1. Buying property can be frustrating and emotionally exhausting. Minimise your stress and anxiety by engaging a buyer’s agent who will provide the full search service – search + locate + evaluate + negotiate + settle.
  2. Buyer’s agents are constantly looking for properties via different sources. Often, they can use their contacts to find “off-market” properties, which enables the buyer to access a more extensive selection of properties.  
  3. Buyer’s agents are property professionals who will be able to advise you about a broad spectrum of property matters including suburbs, budget expectations and the strength of the property market.  
  4. Buyer’s agents work in the best interests of the buyer by striving to ensure that their clients buy quality properties at good prices.  
  5. From dealing with the selling agent to liaising with the mortgage broker and solicitor, you can rely on a buyer’s agent to make sure that the whole process is as smooth as possible.
