The Right Price: Buyer Advocates Share Their Tips for Saving on Your Property Purchase

Many people only buy a few houses in their lives, but these purchases are massive investments. With so much competition in the markets around capital cities at the moment, it is hard for the average person to know how and where they can save money and still purchase the right property for them. With the help of the senior buyer’s advocates at Wise Realestate Advice, we have compiled a list of suggestions to achieve property success with the lowest possible price.

The Right Price- Buyer Advocates Share Their Tips for Saving on Your Property Purchase

Put on your poker face

Giving away your true interest and excitement in a property is an easy way for real estate agents to play into to your emotions. They will be much more cautious in negotiations if they do not know how much interest you truly have in a property.


Dirt before brick

It is easy to let your emotions take over when you find a property with the perfect kitchen or glorious back yard deck, however the cosmetics of a property should never be paramount in your decision. Location and land size will set you up better in the future: designs can be changed; land cannot!


Money, money, money

The old saying that money talks is probably the most relevant statement for property. At the end of the day each vendor is out to make the money that every purchaser wants to save. Having your finances in order will allow you to jump on a good deal- hopefully before your competition.

Professional support is essential

Unless you plan to knock it down, having a team of people to do a building and pest inspection is vital to avoid buying a property that may cost you more in the long run. A lawyer should review your contract of sale to make sure there aren’t any hidden costs or legal issues associated with your purchase.

Stick to your budget at auctions

Auctions bring out every bidders emotions and it is easy to get carried away. When the bidding slows near the top end of your budget it is easy to think in the smaller numbers of ‘it’s only $1,000 more’, or ‘we can afford an extra $5,000’. Always remember though, that you determined that specific budget before the auction for a reason and you should not lose sight of what that is.

    I found Mark through Google!!!.
    Since my first meeting I felt so confident in Mark's ability and experience in being able to deliver a great result. I was very much impressed with Mark's service as he made the whole process easier and stress free!!!!

    I am really happy because I bought exactly what I was looking for and it was well under my top budget. Most importantly We did it within few weeks.

    Since day one Mark was very pro-active.

     Mark emailed multiple properties every week within my search parameters and wish list.
     Mark allowed me to be involved as much as I wished.
     Mark inspected the properties I liked.
     Mark explained the positives and negatives about each property.
     Mark held a pre-auction meeting and attended the auction
     Mark's strategies and suggestions like where he’ll stand during the auction, how he’ll handle the negotiation etc. etc. and through to the final shaking of hands inside the house all played out in a positive way.

    Thank you Mark for all your work in getting me the right house for the right price!

    I highly recommend Mark for everybody who wants to find a good place to live or invest.

    Many, many, many thanks!
