Why Buyer’s Agents are on the Increase (Case Study)

In recent years, the popularity of professional buyer’s agents has soared in Perth and across the country.

More and more investors and home buyers in the information age, are becoming increasingly savvy and demanding the services of professional buyer’s agents to work on their behalf.

Buyers now understand that it’s important to have expert help when they are buying property, as well as when they are selling, to ensure they get the best deal.

As well, investors are realising buyer’s agents save them precious time and money. While they spend their time where they can earn money – in their profession – buyer’s agents are locating the ideal property for them.

There is also the benefit that a buyer’s agent can save buyers money on the purchase price because they research the property market intimately and so stop them from overpaying.

Buyer’s agents also have the expertise and access to information that can prevent them selecting a property that will under-perform.

Advisor.jpg

As people have become more aware of the workings of the real estate industry, many buyers now recognise the need for representation.

Just as you might engage a lawyer, a doctor, an accountant to address specific legal, health, financial aspects of your life, it makes sense to engage a professional buyer’s agent if you’re considering buying property.

And, if you are considering buying a house or apartment, the seller is likely to have an agent on their side, so why not have a professional on yours.

Whether you’re just starting out, or even if you’re a pretty savvy property investor, you’re probably asking, “but what can a buyer’s agent do that you can’t do yourself?” (more…)
