Frequently Asked Questions About Buyer’s Agents in Brisbane
How is the industry regulated?
The main regulatory body in each state is the Office of Fair Trading. The only national body representing professional buyers’ agents is REBAA. At REBAA, we’ve worked hard to not only improve the standards of the industry, but to also raise awareness of buyer’s agents over the past decade. Our members are committed to offering quality services with stringent ethical standards and undertaking proper due diligence.
To be a REBAA member, agents should:
- be a registered agent with OFT or relevant Property Board in their state/territory
- have professional indemnity insurance
- have been generally operating as a buyer’s agent for the past 24 months
- be a licensed real estate agency in the relevant state/territory in which they are REBAA accredited in
- not have properties listed for sale or be involved in direct selling
How does a buyer’s agent negotiate a better price?
Understanding what the property is worth is the first thing that a buyer’s agent does. To do this, they look at comparable sales of houses in the same suburb in the same neighbourhood. From this, once you have a better idea of what a property is worth, you can easily move forward and negotiate with better confidence. It’s also important to note that creating a good relationship with a selling agent can assist with inside knowledge and help with the negotiation by previewing properties before listing and understanding the real price the vendor wants. A selling agent is much more likely to deal with a buyer’s agent they know and trust, versus a buyer who they have never seen because they are much more confident they will make the sale.
