The Perks of Having a Buyer’s Agent – What to Know

Plenty of people act for themselves without a buyer’s agent and handle all the necessary steps of purchasing a house on their own. But is it worth the hassle?  Buyers’ agents have broad experience in the real estate industry and are licensed to act for property buyers. With those credentials, you can guarantee a much better outcome.

In this article, we’ll tackle some of the benefits that a buyer’s agent can provide when you buy a house or investment property.

 

Price Guidance

Buying a home is an expensive investment. Understandably, you will only want to move forward with a purchase if you get the best bang for your buck. Since buyers’ agents have seen a lot of homes, they will be able to assess if the value of a house’s specifications are worth the price. Also, since it is their job to know all properties within the area, they can pinpoint properties that have been on the market for too long and properties that have not been sold previously. When you know this level of detail, you can work out if perhaps there is something wrong with the property or alternatively if it stacks up at a particular price point.

 

Agents Have a Huge Network 

Buyers’ agents have an extensive network of contacts, and some of these people are useful connections for your real estate journey. These include conveyancers, solicitors, building and pest inspectors, strata reporters, town planners and architects. It really helps to have a team of trusted advisors in place before you embark upon the process of buying property.

 

Agents Handle the Process for You

Buyers’ agents make buying homes a breeze because they handle everything, from shortlisting and inspecting properties to undertaking the negotiations or bidding at auction. Since they have connections, they can streamline the entire process for you without the need to lift a finger. If you’re someone who doesn’t have time or doesn’t know where to start, your agent will be your new best friend and can handle all problems that may arise. 

 

Saving Time

Buyer’s agents will save their clients a huge amount of time and stress in researching properties, sourcing properties, inspecting properties, organising the due diligence and negotiating with the real estate agent. Anyone who appreciates and values their time will understand the value of a buyer’s agent. As the old saying goes, “Time is money!”

 

Saving Money

Buyers’ agents are always seeking to ensure that their clients buy quality properties at good prices. Whereas a seller uses a selling agent to achieve the highest selling price on the sale of their property, buyers use a buyer’s agent to negotiate the lowest possible purchase price. Good buyers’ agents can save their clients money in a variety of different ways including through their knowledge of the property market, superior negotiation skills, auction bidding, experience and sourcing suitable properties.
