What is a buyers agent?

Buying an investment property should be exciting, and to enjoy the process you will need confidence, and you will need a great team. The right buyer's agent is the solution to Australia's difficult property investing landscape, to capitalize on opportunity and make the right choices.

Unlike a sales agent or vendors advocate, a buyers agent is an experienced property buyer who brings many advantages to the home buying table, including:

  • Understanding the most effective asset type for your financial situation

  • Access to a high-performing, professional team (mortgage brokers, property managers, accountants, etc)

  • Conducting extensive due diligence

  • Optimizing property cycles to decide on suburb and city locations for maximum growth potential (Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth show the right signs for 2024)

  • Access to off-market properties and pre-market properties through established professional networks

  • Property negotiation experience

  • Guidance and advice throughout the process, removing stress and the unknowns

How much does a buyers agent cost?

The Australian property industry is severely under-regulated, and this allows for inexperienced and unscrupulous buying advocates to fly under-the-radar and buy real estate investments for clients, without the proper foundational knowledge. A buyer's agent should have the client's best interests at heart, without financial incentives from developers or builders to push a certain property onto any unknowing buyer.

These incentives allow for buyers agents to charge very small fees to the client, as they tend to get a much higher commission from pushing the product. This leaves the property buyer with an underperforming asset that has been overpaid for, the poor results are not truly realised until years later.

A buyers agent fee and any hidden commissions should be transparent to the buyer, so they know about any bias in the property selection. Typical full-service buyers agent fees in Australia 2024 are approximately $9,000-$20,000, although it's much more important to find out where any other commissions come from.
