FAQ

WHAT IS A BUYERS' AGENT?

A Buyers' Agent is a licensed agent who represents the buyer in a real estate purchase. 
In our case this will involve understanding the clients property brief,  finding properties that meet that brief, carrying out due diligence and negotiation the best deal to acquire the property.

WHY USE A BUYER'S AGENT?

A Buyers' Agent will be well connected with real estate agents and will give you access to more properties than you will be able to find, this will include off-market listings.

A buyers' Agent will save you time searching for and inspecting unsuitable properties, save you the stress involved in the buying process, and will save you the hassle of dealing directly with selling agents.

A buyers' Agent has the skill set to negotiate the best deal on your behalf.

A buyers' Agent will give you the peace of mind that you have bought the right property for the right price.

HOW DO YOUR FEES WORK?

We believe in value for money, and we also believe in transparency. We have a simple fee structure, that is designed so you know exactly what you are paying and what you are paying for.
Our fees are charged in two parts:
The first is a retainer which allows us to get to work on your brief straight away.
The second is a success fee, which is payable to us when we help you buy your new property.

WHY DO I NEED A BUYER'S AGENT?

The average Australian home owner transacts (buys/sells) a property approximately once every seven (7) years, as such, searching for, and acquiring a property can be extremely time consuming and stressful, especially for busy professionals, with many hours of searching, performing due diligence and negotiating with Real Estate Agents on the cards. 

 

Real Estate Agents are skilled professionals who are legally required to represent the best interests of the Vendor (seller), and as such often employ many effective tactics to take advantage of the relatively unfamiliar space the Buyer often finds themselves in. 

 

As such, engaging a Buyers' Agent to represent you levels the playing field by engaging a similarly qualified and experienced agent to represent your best interests in the transaction. This not only takes a huge amount of stress out of the entire experience, it provides you with access to a professional who is able to effectively negotiate on your behalf, with product and market knowledge that is simply not held by anyone other than a professional in this field. 

I'VE FOUND THE PROPERTY I WANT TO BUY. CAN YOU JUST HELP ME NEGOTIATE?

Yes,  as an  experienced  Sydney  Buyer’s  Agent,  we  are  able  to  formulate  negotiation  strategies  to  assist  our  clients  in  purchasing  a  property,  even  if  it  is  an  on  market  property  they  have  already  found.  

 

We  can  take  the  stress  out  of  the  situation  for  you,  by  managing  all  communication  with  the  selling  agent,  researching  comparable  sales  listings  to  provide  an  unbiased  opinion  on  the  properties  value,  provide  offers  to  the  vendor,  facilitate  exchange  and  even  bid  on  your  behalf  at  auction,  should  you  so  require.  

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BUY A PROPERTY?

There  is  no  set  timeframe  for  purchasing  a  property,  once  you  become  a  Buyer’s  Market  client.  Our  search  process  extends  to  many  real  estate  agents,   across  a  range  of  different  companies.  We  will  take  the  time  to  speak  with  them to  ascertain  what  stock  is  available  that  fits  your  brief.  Our  Agency  Agreement  lasts  for  a  period  of  12  months,  so  during  that  time,  we  will  continue  to  search  for  and  present  properties  to  you,  until  the  right  opportunity  is  found  and  secured,  for  the  right  price.

DO YOU WORK WITH OVERSEAS OR INTERSTATE BUYERS?

Yes, we often assist customers from overseas or interstate. Often these buyers are at a natural disadvantage due to the fact that they are unable to physically inspect properties, and often are unfamiliar with the market. We help these buyers by acting as their eyes and ears, to help them level the playing field and become successful Sydney home owners.

WHAT AREAS CAN YOU PURCHASE A PROPERTY IN?

We can and have purchased property all over Sydney. Our service extends beyond the Eastern Suburbs, and we have clients in the Inner West, South Sydney, Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore.

Engaging Matt to buy a property for us was one of the best decisions we ever made. He was patient, and really went the extra mile for us to ensure we felt comfortable. We were really out of our depth, tired, and totally over the process. 

 

I felt Matt really had our best interests at heart through the whole process. He was able to negotiate an excellent price for us, in the middle of a tough period for Sydney Real Estate. I cannot recommend Buyer's Market highly enough.
