On the Hunt for the Best Buyer's Agent? Five Things You Should Look For

03 Apr 2020

With the use of buyer’s agents on the rise, and more and more agents getting into the field, it can be hard to know which agents to use and which to avoid.

This has never been more true than in the Brisbane market, which is currently going through a growth cycle. With a lot of people interested in investing in Brisbane, how do you find the best buyer’s agent?

1. Are They Truly Independent? 

When appointing a Brisbane Buyer’s Agent, it’s important to identify agencies that offer an independent service. They shouldn’t be affiliated with developers or sales agents or obtaining commission from the sale, but rather charging the buyer fees for their service.

2. Do They Have Experience?

The Best Buyer’s Agent Brisbane has to offer might not be the youngest, or the oldest, but they should have experience in the market in which they are assisting you to purchase. Every state is different with property law, and each deal you do expands the knowledge base of your buyer’s agent. That’s why it is important to use someone local to where you want to purchase, with a track record of success.

3. Are They a Member of REBAA?

Why use a buyers agent that is a member of REBAA (Real Estate Buyers Agent Association of Australia)? Well, it takes the guess work out of knowing if they are truly independent, insured and licensed to act on your behalf. As an association they undertake all the back ground checks to ensure only the best agencies are allowed entry into the association. 

4. Holistic Service

I often get asked, what is a buyer’s agent? The answer really isn’t that simple; often a buyer’s agent will wear many hats in their role, and this holistic service is want you need. Look for an agency that offers in-house property management, as well as assistance with renovations and improvements to your property. This helps keep everything on track with your portfolio.

5. Someone You Are Comfortable With

Lastly, and possibly most importantly, you need to gel with the person you’re working with. If you don’t believe in their strategy or you get an off feeling about them, it’s likely your gut is telling you the right advice. If they are too salesy or pushy or secretive, then it might not be right for you. I believe in transparency when it comes to property and working with a team you trust is the most important factor.
