Why use a Buyer’s Agent

One of the most common questions I get asked is …what are the benefits of using a Buyer’s Agent?  Below I have outlined some of key reasons why people will choose to engage in my Buyer’s Agent service …and why you should too!

Speed up the Buying Process

The majority of people I come into contact with have been in the market for 6-12 months (or longer!), they may have missed out on few properties or find the whole buying process complicated and difficult to navigate.  On average, the typical buying cycle with me is circa. 10-12 weeks which speeds up the buying process by approx. 75%.

Save You Money

Even if all I did was speed up the buying process, I could save you more than my fee in market fluctuation.  On top of that I’m going to implement the right strategy so that I can successfully negotiate the best possible price for you so that you don’t miss out on your dream home/investment.

Save Time & Unnecessary Stress

Through many years of working in the industry, particularly on the buying side, I have become very skilled in sourcing high quality properties across different price ranges for my clients, and always with their best interest at heart.  This saves a huge amount of time and unnecessary stress looking at and dealing with properties that are either over budget or do not meet the specified buying criteria. 

Off-Market Properties

On average, between 50% – 55% of residential property can sell off-market at any one time – this is defined by stock that is not advertised or marketed as such.  On average, roughly around 60% of the properties I purchase are either pre or off-market and as your Buyer’s Agent, I will ensure that you have access to all these opportunities; in addition to the on-market campaigns which will open up far more buying propositions, positioning you in the driver’s seat and one step ahead of the competition.

Experience 

I have been in Real Estate for 20 years and have been on the buying side for over 6 years now specialising in buying property in Sydney.  Did you know that in NSW alone, less than 25% of people own 2 or more properties?  As such, some buyers can lack the ability to negotiate effectively during the purchasing process, especially in an ever-changing market.  I negotiate on property as my core area of expertise, therefore having acquired and sustained the negotiation and strategic skills required, over a long period of time.  When these skills are implemented correctly, I am very successful at securing outstanding outcomes for my clients.

Market Knowledge

Understanding the market and the value representations is crucial in the buying process.  Not only have I been doing this for a long time but simply looking at 5 properties a week does not give you a complete picture of value representations. I am in the market full-time, have been for a long time and inspect many properties on a weekly basis (both on-market and off-market) in addition to attending auctions which contributes to my expert knowledge of the Sydney property market. 

Local Knowledge & Expertise

I specialise in buying property in Sydney and more specifically, the North Shore and Northern Beaches.  I am a local resident of the Lower North Shore living in Cremorne and am very passionate about the area with extensive local knowledge and insider information that is imperative in the buying process like knowing which is the better and, more expensive side of the street or which buildings or streets might have a bad reputation or are harder to sell – unfortunately first impressions don’t always make the best investments.

Extended Network

My long-standing relationships with real estate agents is invaluable. I transact regularly with the agents and have developed lasting relationships sustained through trust and working together with confidentiality during the purchasing process.  As a result of these relationship, I don’t get treated like a buyer but rather a repeat client working in synergy to execute efficiently.
