When you buy a home or investment property in Australia, it’s common to engage the services of a real estate agent to sell your property for you. Why not consider hiring a Buyers Agent Melbourne to support you through the entire purchase process? Buyers agents, also known as Property Advocates or Buyer’s Advocates, act on your behalf to negotiate the best price for a property.
Are buying agents worth it?
Unlike a selling agent, who represents the seller, a buyer’s advocate is an independent professional who works solely in the interests of the purchaser. They are experienced in property research and price negotiation and provide a full range of services from forming your property brief to shortlisting properties for inspection. Many are specialised in specific suburbs and markets, and have extensive networks of selling agents who can be utilised to find off-market properties.
If you’re looking for a Buyers Agent Melbourne, choose one who has a long history of success and high customer satisfaction. Check out their Google reviews and see if they can provide testimonials from previous clients. Ask about their fees and how they are structured, and whether they specialise in particular Melbourne suburbs or market areas.
