Buyer’s agents (also known as ‘buyer’s advocates’) are licensed professionals that specialise in searching, evaluating and negotiating the purchase of property on behalf of the buyer.
They do not sell real estate.
Whereas real estate agents primarily represent the seller of the property, a buyer’s agent looks after you, the buyer.
A buyer’s agent generally offers two types of services:
Some buyer’s agents charge an engagement fee before they begin the search for a home. Users of the full service can expect to pay a flat fee or a percentage of the property purchase price.
Using a buyer’s agent to bid at auction, meanwhile, carries a lower fee as there’s much less time involved.
Investors should note that the cost of using a buyer’s advocate is generally tax-deductible when purchasing an investment property.
Some buyer’s agents have access to a wider range of properties that you may not ordinarily be exposed to (some may not even be advertised). They will utilise their network to connect you with focused opportunities, often ahead of others in the market.
Having a professional seek out a property that meets your needs can save you countless hours, shortlisting efforts and stress. Your weekends are freed up to attend inspections and focus only on the properties with a great chance of ticking your boxes.
Though there’s an increasing array of tools and data out there to help you make an informed choice when buying, it still takes valuable time, and if you can outsource that work to someone working in your interest, why not?
