Why you need to use a buyer's agent in Sydney
Gain the upper hand
Seeking and buying a home is stressful. When you’re under pressure it’s easy to forget your initial brief and to act on impulse. Change of Address stays objective to secure your purchase. Get the advantage of informed research and years of experience. I’ll make recommendations based on your brief and the local market. And my negotiation/bidding skills will ensure you don’t pay over market value.
Leave the legwork to me
Why waste time on unsuitable homes from selling agents who don’t listen? Their job is to sell a property for the vendor. My job is to work only for you. I will source and inspect properties that fit your brief, and refine them to three or four. I’ll then take you on a personal inspection tour.
How I can help you:
Researching and locating properties
Upto 75% of the properties I find are off-market. Through my networks you’ll access homes that may be sold without advertising or open days.
Identifying true property value
I can spot potential problems that may not be noticeable to the untrained eye! I’ll also source properties with good prospects for capital growth. Make an informed choice and secure a fair price.
Negotiating the sale price
My long experience with private treaties and auctions ensures value for money. A well-negotiated purchase price will save you hundreds or thousands of dollars.
Bidding at auction
Are you missing out by underbidding? Auctions are often nerve-wracking, even for experienced bidders. I am expert at reading a room, and will bid for you, to secure your property at the right price.
Helping with the paperwork
In a competitive marketplace, I can advise on reliable professionals to handle building reports, pest inspections, legal issues, finance. You’ll have all the boxes ticked, and I’ll ensure due diligence is followed.
Recommending removalists, architects, designers and tradespeople
It’s important that you feel at home as quickly as possible. I will refer you to services with a long-standing reputation.
Coordinating renovations and refurbishments
With over 20 years’ experience as an interior designer, I can translate your dreams into reality, and improve re-sale value. Note: this service is charged as an additional fee.
Sourcing the perfect property is hard enough when you’re based locally, but from abroad it’s even tougher.
I understand the special challenges you face, and the questions you have when purchasing from overseas:
How can I make a decision without seeing the property?
Will it be a good investment?
How can I negotiate from a distance?
What about tax laws and foreign investment regulations?
Working long distance
As your personal advocate I will act on your behalf every step of the way. Because you are not limited to a particular real estate agent, you will have access to listed and unlisted real estate across Sydney. You’ll also benefit from my local knowledge of market and investment trends. I will visit a property at least once before shortlisting it. While I search and refine the listings, you can relax and concentrate on making the big move to your new home.
