Why sellers use a Real Estate Agent?
A home/property seller uses a professional Real Estate agent as they don’t want to risk selling for less than the market price, by advertising and negotiating themselves.
That’s why when buying property, you’re normally buying from a professional real estate agent, whose role is to work for the seller and make sure you pay market price or higher in your purchase decisions.
A Real Estate Agent is ‘hired by the seller’ for around 1-3% of the sale price to negotiate your purchase in the seller's interest.
Why buyers use a Buyer's Advocate?
A home/property buyer uses a professional Buyers Advocate as they don’t want to risk paying more than the market price, by researching and negotiating themselves.
That’s why when buying property, you employ assistance from a professional Buyers Advocate, whose role is to work for you and make sure you pay market price or lower in your purchase decisions.
A Buyer’s Advocate is ‘hired by yourself’ for around $5,000-$10,000 to negotiate your purchase in your interest as the buyer.
If you’re ready to buy property, usually this is with 100’s of thousands of dollars borrowed from a bank with interest payable. Sure you can research and negotiate yourself, but what do you stand to lose if you get it wrong?
There are lots of hidden things to a property purchase that can go wrong. However, with property, you normally work out these costs, in lost years, lost equity, more debt or worse still missed a future opportunity. Most of the time you will never know what could have been until it’s too late. How many thousands are you allowing in your budget to get this wrong, can you even work this out?
We work for you, not the vendor selling the home.
To put it in simple terms, a buyer's advocate is a person who specializes in property advisory, sorting all of the questions to ask. Negotiating the price and purchase is just one part of this process.
We can search for properties based on your wants and needs, bid on your behalf in an auction and/or evaluate a property for you to buy as our client. Provide education on the current housing market. Complete all of the paperwork for making an offer or counteroffer. Provide follow-ups for any inspections,
If the property is going to require finance, we add mortgage education pre and post-settlement. Making sure you fully understand paying and affording this debt. We make sure pre-approval is already in place prior to any purchase.
Buyer's advocacy differs from a real estate agent trying to sell you properties that only their real estate company has listed, as buyer's advocates we look at the wider range of properties for sale, including ones that may not be listed anywhere. If you're looking for property for your business, we will also look to find prospective properties that will maximize your profit and traffic through your business.
