1. What does it cost?
Most importantly, the first thing to know is that the buyer pays a buyer’s agent in Australia, so there is NO conflict of interest with the real estate agent. Remember, the Real Estate Agent is paid by the seller and therefore his obligated to get the maximum price and best terms for their seller.
Many say that using a Buyer’s Agent won’t cost you anything. No, buyer’s agents don’t work for free. But the fee that is paid by the buyer to the buyer’s agent is in most cases covered by the experienced buyer’s agent’s ability to negotiate the lowest price and the very best terms. Many of our buyers say, “It didn’t cost anything because you saved us so much! You got the lowest price and best terms that were far more than your fees.” While that’s often true, they are still paying a fee.
2. Your agent will have a finger on the pulse of the market.
Unless you are in close touch with the real estate market, it’s challenging to know everything that is going on in your local market. That is why you hire a buyer’s agent. We have the market knowledge you need to get the best results from your purchase.
Buying Perth Real Estate can advise you on what kind of offer is likely to get you the home you want and suggest the best terms with which to negotiate. We give you an informed opinion on where we see the local real estate market heading. Are prices rising or dropping? Are inventory levels going up or down?
Most importantly, for now, how will Coronavirus effect the real estate market here in Western Australia.
3. The agent will take care of organising private inspections
Once we listen to your requirements, be it for your dream home or your investment, Buying Perth Real Estate uses our 45+ years of real estate experience to select properties that fit your brief. Once you have decided on the properties you wish to inspect, we arrange a private viewing at a time that is convenient for you. We will work around your busy schedule.
4. A buyer’s agent will research the area and neighbourhood
At Buying Perth Real Estate, we have a pulse on the local market and the areas. Often, we will advise against the property selected by our buyer because of problems in that particular suburb or area. Your final choice must continue to hold value and also have the potential to grow in a rising market.
5. Buying Perth Real Estate will follow your transaction through to final settlement.
