Many people ask the question. What can a buyers agent do for me? Is it worth paying something to research and source a property for me?
Everyone has a different need for why they would want to use a buyers agent. It may be that you don’t have the time to find the perfect property. It could be you’re wanting to leverage the knowledge of an expert to find you a great deal, or the fact you want to take all emotions out of buying.
In a real estate transaction the vendor is represented by a real estate agent. They are hired to sell the property because they are deemed an expert in that field. There better at marketing, negotiating and selling property because they have years of experience and its makes total sense.
But ask yourself this question, what is more important selling or buying? Arguably buying is because if you get it wrong it will potentially cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars, yet if you sell your property the market will determine what you pay.
Buying the wrong property at the wrong price in the wrong area could have a huge effect of your life, so it often’s pays to hire a professional.
