Frequently asked questions when looking for a buyer’s agent

If you are obsessed with all things property like us, chances are that you have seen buyer’s agents in action on TV shows like The Block or Selling Houses Australia but you may not know exactly what a buyer’s agent does. In this article, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to explain a little bit more about the services that we provide to property purchasers.

Why do I need a buyer’s agent?

There are many reasons why people need a buyer’s agent, but the most common reason is to save time & hassle. A buyer’s agent always works with your best interests in mind. We take on all of the groundwork and assess each property by scrutinizing whether it is suitable to your individual needs. Often buyers come to us after trying to purchase a property by themselves for a prolonged period of time. Perhaps they have missed out at auction several times or are finding that they are hearing about the perfect property only after it has sold. It is our job to get the inside information that is not always available to the public and use our knowledge of the market to find the right opportunity for our clients. While there is no such thing as a bargain in the Sydney property market, some opportunities to buy a property are definitely better than others and there are ways to avoid overpaying.

How much does a buyer’s agent cost?

The cost of a buyer’s agent varies depending on the level of service that you require. For example, if you have located the property yourself and simply need professional support to negotiate on your behalf it doesn’t make sense to pay the same fee as someone that requires the full service. In short, there is not a one size fits all price and we encourage you to reach out to us for an obligation free consultation to discuss your needs.

Are buyer’s agents worth it?

Of course we are going to say yes! But in all seriousness, navigating the property market can be confusing, frustrating and time consuming. What value do you place on your time and can you afford to make a bad buying decision? By engaging a buyer’s agent from Brady Marcs Buyers Advisory to represent you, you can be rest assured that you will be guided through the entire process and that no stone was left unturned to find the best possible property for the best possible price.

How do I decide which buyer’s agent is best for me?

There are a number of things to look for when selecting a buyer’s agent including qualifications, experience and track record. All of the buyer’s agents at Brady Marcs Buyers Advisory are fully licensed real estate agents and have had prior experience buying or selling property within the real estate industry before joining our team. In addition to this, they specialize in specific areas which means that they have built strong relationships with the leading selling agents in their chosen area and keep a close eye on what is being sold. Our activity in the marketplace is not shrouded in secrecy either. While our clients privacy is always protected, we are open about our track record and achievements. We are happy to provide case studies and client testimonials.

Can a buyer’s agent bid for me at auction?

Absolutely! At Brady Marcs Buyers Advisory, we offer this as both a stand-alone service or as part of our full service (including strategy, research, source & buy). This can remove the feeling on discomfort on auction day and prevent you from going over budget or from walking away with that sinking feeling that you paid too much.
