There are numerous reasons Camperdown properties are hotly contested by owner occupiers and investors alike. There are several reasons for this. The University of Sydney and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (the largest hospital in the Sydney Local Health District) employ thousands of people, which means there is a consistent demand for property by both owner occupiers and renters.

"Munro did a fantastic job and delivered above our expectations. When we began chatting to Munro about potentially working together, one of our key questions was, “how long is all of this going to take”. During this buying period, there was limited stock on the market, and house prices were rising by the day – it was important that Munro could find the property and make the purchase happen quickly. He was frank with us and explained that our brief would be very challenging but was doable. Further, Munro felt reasonably confident that he could meet our brief in three weeks. It only took him two and a half. Munro knows what he is doing. He is very connected within the Eastern Suburbs property market and knows how to cut to the chase. He can refine a brief within days, and it was not long before all of the properties he showed us met or exceeded our expectations. He managed to get everything we wanted, in the location we wanted, for a price below our budget. He is also an excellent communicator and kept us, as well as our mortgage broker and conveyancer, informed of what was going on at all times. Somehow he even made navigating real estate fun. I would happily recommend him Thank you very much, Munro, for everything that you have done for us."

A buyers’ agent can save you a packet of money if they are experienced, knowledgeable and have your best interests at heart. They can take the emotion out of the negotiation and auction process and give you accurate advice on property values. They should have an extensive database of agent contacts to help you find off-market properties.
Apart from searching online, ask a local selling agent if they have seen a good buyers agent in action. You can also ask family, friends and work colleagues about their experience with using buyers agents.
An important question to ask a buyers agent is whether they are truly “exclusive” or “independent”. If they accept sales commission from vendors or developers then they cannot be classified as “independent” as they are acting in the interests of the seller. Only deal with a licensed buyers agent (you can check license via the Office of Fair Trading in each state) and one that is a recognised member of your state Real Estate Institute and the Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia.
There are seven factors to consider when selecting a good buyers agent.

"Having worked in the professional service environment, we knew and understood the value of engaging an expert. So we decided to engage with Propertybuyer based on three things.
The reputation business had in the market, we understand that the business had won multiple awards within the industry, its media presence - I have listened to a number of Rich’s podcasts so you are well known within the industry. And obviously the accreditation behind that as well."
