What is a Buyers Agent?

Buyer’s agents are licensed professionals that specialise in searching, evaluating and negotiating the purchase of property on behalf of the buyer. An exclusive buyer’s agent solely represents their client – to achieve the best outcome in purchasing commercial and residential investment properties.

Put simply, a buyer’s agent is someone on your side in the sales transaction.

What is the difference between a Buyers Agent and a Selling Agent?

The key difference between a buyers’ agent and a traditional selling agent is who they represent. A buyers’ agent works exclusively for the buyer, whereas the selling agent works for the vendor (seller). A buyers’ agent is paid for their service as either a fixed fee or as a percentage of the purchase price. A buyers’ agent does not sell real estate. By law an agent cannot act for (and accept a commission) from both parties in the transaction.
As exclusive property buyers agents in Brisbane, we will search the entire market and do not have a vested interest in any specific property or selling agency.
As Independent Buyer’s Agents, we are engaged by our clients to solely represent and protect their interests

What does a Buyers Agent do?

 

As professional Brisbane based buyer’s agents we undertake five key steps in delivering our services.

  • Strategy. First we should listen to your needs, requirements and goals and to establish a “Buyer’s Brief”. A clear picture of your requirements is essential to an effective start in the acquisition process. 
  • Research. We will perform in depth assessment of values, rents, demographic and other relevant information with regard to the targets areas being targeted.
  • Shortlist. Next we will search for properties that meet the key criteria and summarise these into a best fit shortlist. We will communicate the requirement to an extensive network of sales agents to contact to find suitable properties both on and off market. If it is suitable we will then arrange a suitable time for you to inspect the properties or shall do so on your behalf.
  • Assessment of value and strategy. Once the ideal property/ies is found and agreed, we will assess the property with an initial investigation and provide a clear justification of current market value. As seasoned professionals, we offer valuable market insight about the true value of your potential purchase. You want to make a decision based on sound market knowledge.
  • Negotiate and Secure. As experienced negotiators we will get the inside scoop on how the sale is progressing, which can save you a lot of money (and prevent you making an emotional purchase). Our ultimate aim is to negotiate the best price and terms to secure the property. As buyers agents in Brisbane we will coordinate all on the ground inspections required such as pest and building (or strata) inspections and help facilitate the exchange of contracts.
  • Due Diligence – Particularly for commercial property acquisitions, it is vital that the buyer’s agent undertake thorough due diligence to investigate the leases, tenants and other technical matters regarding the property. This can and should be done in advance of the purchase becoming unconditional providing ample time to negotiate or if required cancel the contract should any major problems be identified.

The benefits of using Buyers Agents in Brisbane?

Save Time: A buyer’s agent can shortlist properties faster.

 

Searching the internet, calling agents, arranging inspections and viewing properties for months on end can become a very tiring process. We have an extensive and established network of real estate agents to draw on to produce a qualified list of properties to suit your preferences.

From this list the buyer’s agent will efficiently cull the unsuitable properties leaving only the most ideal properties for consideration

 

The average home buyer or investor typically takes 6 to 12 months to get to know the local Brisbane market, find properties and eventually secure one (by which time a rising market may have seen prices rise over 10%). Even with all the latest apps and online tools, it still takes time to vet the vast array of options and work out what is worth inspecting. As experienced property professionals and buyer’s agents in Brisbane on your side and representing your best interests, this process will be far more efficient.

Save Money: A buyer’s agent will negotiate the lowest possible price.

 

Our experience will save you a lot of money! As we are in the business of commercial and investment property on a daily basis we are very proficient at negotiating. We will protect you from making an emotional or irrational purchase – we don’t have a vested interest in the property so we can negotiate objectively on your behalf.

We understand how selling agents operate, and the ways to effectively negotiate better purchasing outcomes for our clients.

As expert buyers agents in Brisbane we will level the playing field and give you the upper hand in negotiations.

 

Save the Stress: Don’t let emotions cloud your judgment. Let a professional deal with the agents.

 

Let’s face it – dealing with real estate agents is not top of everyone’s priority list. Using an experienced and licenced buyer’s agent means you never have to deal with real estate agents.

Stop missing out on properties.

Discover off market listings: We can uncover the other 40% of properties sold off market.

With a wide network of agents at our disposal, we can get access to new listings before they hit the open market. Some vendors prefer to sell on the quiet and avoid the hassle of negotiations played out in  the open or to avoid marketing fees. Sales agents like dealing with buyer’s agents as they professionally represent a qualified buyer, with finance approved and are motivated and ready to buy. 

Buy right: Location is everything. Discover the facts about the hot spots before you buy.

 

When buying an investment property, it goes without saying that selecting the right suburb is paramount for your success. We have access to the latest research and statistics to help you pinpoint the best areas for long term capital growth. There is a clear science behind property investing and sticking to the fundamental drivers of population growth, employment opportunities and infrastructure growth means you can optimise your investment decision making. Commercial property investment specifically requires insight into long term trends of the various asset classes and micro and macro characteristics that will determine the longer term future for investment in the location. This removes the guess work and provides you with the opportunity maximise your returns.

The investment buyers’ agent will provide research on the areas recommended then commence shortlisting specific properties that fit the investment criteria.

Why Brisbane and South East Queensland?

Brisbane’s fundamentals:

 

1. Economy

The continued internationalisation of the Brisbane economy, combined with a local pool of talent and a collaborative business culture, provides a strong, competitive environment for Brisbane’s economy to continue to outperform its neighbours. Brisbane’s progressive and far-sighted business and economic environment gives investors more confidence in their quest to optimise investment return. This confidence is built around Brisbane’s stable political environment, its proven and forecast population and economic growth, and ongoing public and private sector commitment to building a stronger economy and intellectual capital base.

Brisbane is a major hub for large resource and energy companies, a global hub for the mining, equipment, technology and services (METS) sector, a significant centre for research and innovation, and the engine room of much of Queensland’s continued economic growth, with the local Brisbane economy predicted to grow to more than $217 billion by 2031. 

Brisbane’s economy is being underpinned by major projects like Queen’s Wharf, HS Wharf, TradeCoast, Cross River Rail, the second airport runway, Brisbane Live Entertainment Precincit and the Adani Coal Mine, with most of these projects driving the economy for at least several more years in their construction phase alone.

Despite the current global uncertainty, the Brisane/Queensland property markets look to be relatively well placed in terms of fundamentals, barring the high exposure of parts of the State to the troubled international tourism sector.

Compared to New South Wales and Victoria, Queensland is less exposed to foreign education in migration flows.

Brisbane’s residential housing market also had a more subdued run-in prior to the Covid-19 shock and have relatively tight supply/demand balance. The turnover of property sales in Brisbane rebounded strongly after the April / May lockdown and property sales through June and July were nearly 20% above the same period last year.

There are many reasons to remain confident in the long term future of Brisbane and South East Queensland. Liveability, affordability, scale and future economic prospects all suggest that Brisbane is a market that will continue to prosper, along with commercial property in Brisbane.

It’s true that once we come through the Coronavirus pandemic the city is likely to be one of the best performing property markets over the next few years. 

2. Demographics

The population of Greater Brisbane which encompasses the local government areas of Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Redcliffe and Moreton Bay is approximately 2,400,000. This is less than half the population of the larger cities – Sydney and Melbourne.

Queensland is set to become home to more than seven million people over the next 40 years with the vast majority of the population to be contained within the South East corner. 

Given its sub-tropical climate, the region is well known for its laidback lifestyle and enviable weather. Greater Brisbane also has far more affordable property than the southern cities of Melbourne and Sydney.

3. Brisbane’s Infrastructure

Economic growth in Queensland has accelerated in recent years with a multitude of major projects underway or within the pipeline as already mentioned, that stimulate job creation and keep the local economy moving. 

One of the biggest would have to be the addition of a second runway to the Brisbane Airport and you would hope so too, at a total cost of around $1.3billion.

The project is due for completion in 2020 and after 8 years in the making, will become Australia’s largest aviation construction project.

It has already provided hundreds of construction jobs and by 2035, it is expected to generate up to 8,000 new jobs and generate an additional $5 billion dollars to the Brisbane Economy.

4. Brisbane’s Population Growth

With a current population estimated at 2,400,000, with approximately 1.75% annual growth over the last 5 years. 

The population of Greater Brisbane is expected to continue to experience solid growth over the coming 10 years and beyond.
