Anyone can buy a property. Right? But you don't want just anyone to help you buy a property. You want the best...
So where do you start and how do you choose THE buyers agent that’s right for you?
Firstly, smart move. Working with a professional to secure your next property is one of the wisest decisions you’ve made so far - your sanity and your bank balance will thank you for it later.
So who do you use? Who can you trust? Who’s going to get you the most desirable result? This is one of the first crucial decisions you’ll make along the road to purchasing a property because who you decide to work with now will greatly affect the outcome.
If you’re anything like us - you want the most experienced guy (or gal) in your corner when making big financial moves like this. But what does being the most experienced even mean?
Well, the guy that’s just quit his job at the ice cream shop, has probably only purchased a handful of properties in his life and is faking it till he makes it, probably isn’t your guy.
Nor is the big wig that has a team of experts that ‘specialise’ in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Sydney and (anywhere you want to buy really). We work hard to keep a handle on the Gold Coast region (all 125,000+ homes and 6,000+ selling agents) so anyone who claims to be a ‘specialist’ in all areas is more than likely a jack of all, master of none.
I'd also question the independence of the investment specialists that carry a handful of pre-vetted 'premium investment stock' and claim to be the leading agency or #1 agency - according to who? I want to cry every time I see 'professionals' promote that they are Buyers Agents of the Year (if only they really knew how hard it is to win these awards - you can see a list of actual award winners here).
