A buyer’s advocate is a novel concept in Australia; though they are quite common in the US and Europe. As a home buyer or investor, why should you use a buyer’s agent instead of dealing with a traditional real estate agent?
Buyer advocates are champions for your position.
In Australia, most buyers are on their own when it comes to property. They have to navigate the property world without any experience, knowledge, or guidance. They are set against real estate agents with decades of experience, expert knowledge, and all the confidence that comes with it.
Can you imagine a trial where your opponent has three senior counsel lawyers and you’re left to defend yourself? Now relate this back to property: this is the reality of real estate in Australia. No wonder why so many real estate agents, or rather seller’s agents, get a bad reputation.
Seller’s advocates are over-represented while buyer’s advocates are under-represented. About 5% of home sales involve a buyer’s advocate.
Buyer’s advocates have a vested interest in seeing you get the right property at the right price. Buyer’s advocates aren’t transaction oriented – we follow a rigorous process to find a property that ticks all your boxes and at the right price. We aren’t in a rush to dump a property on your lap and call it a day. A buyer’s advocate is obligated to do the right thing by buyers – no one else.
A buyer’s advocate has only done the job when you’re satisfied with the home we’ve found for you.
Looking through listings, evaluating trends, and attending auctions is not only time-consuming but also saps you of money and energy better spent on work, friends, and family. Our job is to provide value by searching for a home, based on your preferences, on your behalf. We assist in auctions, negotiation, and keeping your emotion out of the equation so you can make a level-headed decision.
Buyer’s advocates know how the property game is played – a natural advantage in the marketplace. Mum and dad home buyers or investors aren’t immersed in the language and behind-the-scenes in property marketing – “cozy” often means “small” or “cramped” for example. Buyer’s advocates speak the language, know where to look, and how to best negotiate on your behalf. The result is you get a great home at a fantastic price.
You only ever get straight talk and honest advice from Buyer’s advocates. That’s what you’re paying us for! If we think a home your heart’s set on is a bad investment, we tell you straight up. Real estate agents are trained to tell you everything you want to hear so they can make a hefty commission. Buyer’s advocates only vested interest is in your satisfaction.
