Searching, inspecting, evaluating, researching, negotiating and finally purchasing a property is exhausting, frustrating and disheartening for many would-be property buyers. Here are a few reasons why people decide to work with me.
Experienced and knowledgeable service
There is a lot to know about property purchase. One of the most important things to know is how to evaluate a property quickly, accurately and with minimal cost. No-one wants to spend hundreds of dollars on building and pest reports or strata reports when there are obvious (to the buyer’s agent, not to the buyer) issues with the property. Buyer’s agents purchase property all the time, and being in the market all the time places the buyer’s agent at a substantial advantage over a buyer who purchases on average once every seven years.
Negotiating is a big part of the buying process if you would like to get the lowest possible price. Everyone knows this, but most people are not sure how to negotiate. Many people are unsure what is negotiable and what is not, how hard to push, when to back off, when to walk away and when to go hard. Some people - exhausted from a frustrating and demoralising search - do not negotiate at all - and end up over-paying for their property.
Buyer’s agents aren’t emotional
As a buyer, it’s easy to become emotionally attached to a property you have seen online and start to dream of living there, working out where your pictures will go, what new furniture you’ll buy and how far the nearest dog park is. All before inspecting the home! A buyer’s agent removes the emotion. You only view homes that have been vetted and evaluated, meaning less emotional attachment to the wrong home, much time saved and far less frustration and overwhelm. A buyer’s agent is removed from the emotion and focuses purely on the fundamentals of the property and how closely it matches a client’s brief and needs. A buyer;s agent accesses far more information about a property than is available to the general public - meaning our strike rate is close to 100%.
Save time … lots of time
With a buyer’s agent working on your behalf, you free up your time from searching and inspecting hundreds of homes over months or even years. It’s not just time you’ll save: you save stress, you free your time for your family and friends or income-producing work, and you also end up purchasing sooner. The average purchase through my service occurs within two months of a client engaging my service. This is in contrast to 2+ years when clients go it alone.
