Buyers Advocate

Buyers Advocate

If you’re ready to purchase, we deep-dive into the analytics, researching and sourcing both off-market and on-market opportunities before shortlisting, completing the due diligence and of course, securing the home with an elite level negotiation. Not finished until you’ve settled in, our personalized service extends assistance and coordination through the packing and moving phases.

As a buyers advocate, we offer a few different options to you, our buyer, depending on your current situation and needs. These services include either:

  1. Full search, Select, and Purchase
  2. Negotiation and Contract Signing
  3. Auction Bidding and Contract Signing

We understand that purchasing a property is one the largest financial transactions you will ever make, so having the right buyers advocate on your side ensures you will not only purchase the right property but also pay the least amount of money for it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a buyers advocate?

Are you spending every weekend going to open after open, auction after auction? Not sure where to buy or what to buy? A buyers advocate does all the hard work for you, searching for the right property, in the right area and then negotiating on your behalf to ensure you pay the bare minimum saving you thousands of dollars.

How much does a buyers advocate charge?

A buyers advocate will either charge a fixed fee or a percentage of the purchase price depending on the type of service that is required. If the buyer has found a property and just needs a buyers advocate to negotiate the sale and bid at auction if needed then a fixed fee is charged.

If a buyer requires a full search, select, and purchase then we charge a small percentage of the final purchase price. Please feel free to call us to discuss further.

Why is a buyers advocate so important?

When purchasing a property, utilising a buyers advocate is extremely important for many reasons. One of the main reasons is we have access to a lot of off market properties that are not advertised, meaning you have a greater selection to choose from and also have exclusive access with no competition, meaning you will not pay a premium price.

Secondly, using the right buyers advocate to negotiate a sale can save you tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars off the purchase price.
