If sellers have agents, why can’t buyers?
The booming property market means smooth sailing for sellers, for buyers it means prices and competition are heating up, making the task of completing a purchase even more daunting.
Paying for someone to do the legwork for you, taking on greedy estate agents and fending off other buyers, was previously something only the rich could afford. But lower fees and new commission structures are bringing buying agents within reach of everyone.
A buying agent’s role is to find suitable property based on their customers requirements, ensuring finance is in place and that you’re ready to buy quickly and efficiently. The agent then conducts a search and shortlists properties. Chosen properties will be thoroughly researched to reveal any deficiencies that could affect the price. The buying agent will negotiate the sale, deal with all the administrative and legal aspects and ensure you move is happy.
But why pay for something you can do yourself?
‘Anyone can go out and buy a property but the challenge is to buy the right property that will reap you maximum financial gain in the long term, create wealth and lifestyle benefits.’
