Buying a property is one of the biggest emotional and financial decisions you will make in your lifetime. It involves a lot of planning, time, uncertainty and in many cases, a lot of disappointment. Having a professional representative in your corner eliminates the guesswork and helps you navigate through the minefield of a complex property market.
Our sole purpose is to represent you, the purchaser, and to support you through the complete property purchase process. We level out the playing field against traditional Real Estate Agents who work exclusively for The Vendor and aim to sell you any property for the highest price possible. As Buyer Advocates, we ensure you are purchasing a quality property that meets all of your requirements and we secure it for the best possible price.
Save time: A Buyers Advocate will save you an immense amount of time as we formulate a scope that meets your exact requirements and is within your preferred budget. We will only introduce you to quality properties that we know will suit you and you won’t waste time on properties that don’t match.
Reduces stress: Buying a home or investment property can be extremely stressful, emotional, timely, exhausting and sometimes terribly discouraging. A property advocate’s experience means the entire process is stress-free and eliminates all the guess work for you.
Save money: Buyers Agents are experienced negotiators. They know what questions to ask, how to bid at the auction and what the realistic value of the property is based on their research and knowledge. They negotiate with confidence having done it so many times before and without any emotional attachment to the property which means it’s easier for them to walk away if the price is not right.
Off-market access: Many properties are sold off-market for a number of reasons such as the vendor wanting a swift sale. A good Buyers Agent will have relationships with a range of real estate agents meaning they are often the first to be informed about the latest off market properties that become available.
There is usually less competition for an off-market property and if the seller does want a quick sale, then you have more negotiation power. A Buyers Agent will know how to approach them to ensure that you are the best position to negotiate.
Speed into market: With knowledge comes efficiency and at Beckett Property, our average search time before we buy a property is 44 days. This process for an un-experienced buyer can take months and still not yield results. Recently we met with a client who was searching for 11 months and could not secure anything. Once Beckett property started working with them, we found them a property they loved within 35 days. This is mainly down to having an established process to search and select the right places.
Experience and Knowledge: Buyers Agents buy houses as a profession, while people outside of the industry may only buy houses a few times in their life. They can quickly establish what a property’s worth and how the market is trending. This will help buyers to understand whether a property is right for them and is likely to achieve capital growth. We recommend that people look for a licensed agent. This is not a requirement but highlights that the property advocate knows the regulatory requirements to ensure the buyer is fully protected.
Interests aligned with the buyer: A Real Estate Agent works for the seller so their objective is to sell the property for the highest possible price. A Buyers Agent works for the buyer so their interests are aligned with the buyer’s needs and to purchase the right property at the right price.
Convenient for Instate or Foreign Buyers: To buy a property, you need to be in the market and viewing the properties before bidding. If you are not in market, working with a Buyers Agent can help to be your eyes and ears on the ground. They can shortlist a selection of properties so that you can fly in at one time to go through them all in one day.
