The Daily Workings of a Buyer’s Agent
You’ve heard of a buyer’s agent (if not click here) or see the video below and have done a little bit of research in what one does, but do you know exactly what is involved when you hire a buyer’s agent to source and buy a property on your behalf? Let’s take a look at the daily workings of a buyer’s agent so that you can get a better understanding of the services that you could get from your potential provider!
Daily Reviews of the Current Sydney Property Market Trends
Because buyer’s agents work with a number of buyers who hold different property requirements, it is crucial that they stay up-to-date with all of the current property market trends in the area and source a property that meets your needs and which is available with the type of home loans available. Your agent will be the first to know about up and coming properties, sales prices and more as part of their daily role, as well as the specifics of current planning permissions, letting permissions and investment property restrictions.
Following Web Leads and Property Inquiries:
Successful buyer’s agents in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs do almost all of their business communications via the internet, so you can be sure that your agent is consistently following up on web leads and property inquiries. This means that they will be able to offer you not only the best properties in your area, but also exclusive properties that you may not be able to find on your own.
Interviewing and Qualifying Prospective Sellers:
Buyer’s agents have to interview and qualify prospective sellers who may suit the needs of their clients. If you are interested in a particular style of property, it is the responsibility of your buyer’s agent to approach sellers with properties that meet those requirements. This way you can be sure that every property that is advised by your guide will suit you from the get-go.
A buyer’s guide will inform you every step of the way with the property buying process, from viewing the property all the way to negotiating contracts. Your buyer’s guide will educate you on the entire process, so that you can understand exactly what you are committing to when it comes to buying a particular property.
Planning and Executing Property Showings:
Your buyer’s agent will create a portfolio of properties that meet your requirements and set up viewings so that you don’t have to. Once all of the groundwork is done (research, seller interviews, etc.) it is your agent’s responsibility to escort you to each of the viewings. Once here your agent will advise you on mitigating factors, price brackets, negotiations and more to ensure that you get the most from both the property and the deal.
So, now that you know the full extent of the work that goes on behind the scenes, you can take the next step in hiring a buyer’s agent in your area.
