Tips for Finding the Right Buyer’s Agent (and when/if you need one)

We had a question this week that we wanted to share with you, in case you are wondering about the whyhow and when of working with a Buyers Agent.

So, here are some of our top tips on finding a Buyers Agent & what to look out for:

  • Define your goals and requirements: Start by clearly defining your objectives, budget, desired location, and specific features you’re looking for in a property. This will help you communicate your needs effectively to your buyer’s agent.
  • Seek referrals and conduct research: Ask friends, family, and colleagues for recommendations of reliable buyer’s agents they have worked with successfully in the past. Additionally, research buyers agents online and read reviews to gather a list of potential agents.
  • Chat with multiple agents: Take the time to chat with multiple buyer’s agents before making a decision. Prepare a list of questions to ask regarding their experience, knowledge of the local market, availability, and track record.
  • Assess market expertise: A buyer’s agent with a deep understanding of the local market can provide valuable insights and help you navigate through off-market opportunities. Look for agents who have extensive experience in the specific area you’re interested in.
  • Strong negotiation skills: The ability to negotiate effectively is crucial when working with a buyer’s agent. Look for someone who has a proven track record of securing favourable deals for their clients.
  • Communication and availability: Open and frequent communication is essential throughout the buying process. Ensure that your agent is responsive, readily available, and willing to keep you updated on new listings and developments.
  • Understand their fee structure: Discuss the buyers agents fee structure upfront to avoid any surprises. Some buyers agents charge a percentage of the purchase price, others charge a flat fee. Many ask for a mandate fee upfront when you engage them. Understand it and get it in writing.
  • Trust your instincts: Finally, trust your instincts when selecting a buyer’s agent. Choose someone with whom you feel comfortable, confident, and who aligns with your vision and goals.
