Frequently Asked Questions About Buyer’s Advocates in Melbourne
How does a buyer’s agent negotiate a better price?
Understanding the property’s worth is the first thing a buyer's agent will do. They’ll look at the comparable sales in the suburb and area, and once this has been established, moving forward, you can negotiate with confidence. A buyer’s agent will also ensure they have a good relationship with a selling agent, who can provide inside knowledge and help with the negotiation by previewing properties before listing and understanding the real price the vendor wants. A selling agent is more likely to deal with a buyer’s agent they know and trust, compared to a buyer who they have never seen, because they are more confident they will make the sale.
What can a buyer’s agent do that I can’t do on my own?
The main thing to remember is that a buyer’s agent won’t have the same inexperience and emotions that most buyers have. They will bring a good solid guidance based on experience and a level head. A good buyer’s agent or advocate will be able to realize and see what’s a good property fast, whilst having the ability to narrow down the field, allowing you to act quickly and avoid buying a dud.
What valuation tools does a buyer’s agent use to determine market value?
While the internet or an app can punch out a price estimate in five seconds, it’s important to note that it takes years of training and experience to understand property values accurately. If a property has been renovated or altered in any way, there is no way an online valuation tool can include the added value of that, or even an estimate. Nothing beats physically inspecting a property and if you don’t have the time to do the legwork, then get a buyer’s agent to do it for you.
