"Rich was on the ball all the time, he had off-market properties we didn’t have access to and took the hard work out of the process. We had a pretty tight brief and we probably wouldn’t have been able to find the house on our own. We couldn’t fault the experience, or fault working with Rich and would recommend using him to anyone." - Sarah & Jeff | Northern Beaches

Are you interested in becoming a Home Owner?

 

Buying a house is a big deal. Not only is it likely to be the biggest and most significant investment of your life, but it’s also the home where you are going to live happily and, perhaps, raise a family.

It’s an anxious time, for first-time home buyers, as well as those who have a few property purchases under their belt.

Help is at hand, however, as our expert property buyers’ agents have extensive knowledge of the real estate market in NSW, VIC, and QLD, especially in the prime residential suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. 

Benefits Of Using One Of Our Buyers' Agents

Our buyers’ agents will see you safely through all of the scenarios above, and then some. We provide a completely impartial and unbiased home buying service. We don’t have a hidden agenda or vested interest in any of the houses or apartments we show you.

Instead of providing you with only a small selection of homes for sale from only one or two suburbs in either Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, we scour all of the houses in the areas that meet your criteria. Ordinarily, this would take a tremendous amount of time, but our buyers’ agents are so knowledgeable that they already have a lot of the information necessary, such as sales prices in specific suburbs and market trends that influence where and when you should consider buying a home.

e relieve the stress that home buyers feel when looking for a new house or apartment. Forget about months spent trawling the internet, weekends driving to inspections, and nights calling agents, only to feel like your perfect home is further away than ever.

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer who has just started your journey towards buying a house, or you’re further along the process and have recently missed out at auction, or you have temporarily paused your search out of frustration or time constraints, don’t worry. This is the reason we exist.

Our Fees

We charge a fixed (flat) fee that applies for each price band (please ask us for a specific quote). Our fixed fees for the full search service are between 1.5% to 2.0% including GST of purchase price.


If you’d like a specific quote for your circumstances, please complete our property brief

We have a range of service options to suit your budget. 

  • Option 1 - Full search (our most popular service)
  • Option 2 - Appraise and Negotiate only
  • Option 3 - Auction Bidding

We apply a fixed fee because we don’t want any perception of bias in the way we negotiate for clients. An initial retainer fee from $2000 to $5000 is payable upfront, then a success fee is payable once the property is secured (unconditionally exchanged).

Using a buyers’ agent gives you, as a first-time home buyer or an old hand at real estate investment, access to off-market properties, local knowledge, and accurate appraisal and data, saves you huge amounts of time and you get a professional negotiator on your side.

We can also recommend reputable property managers should you be buying a home for investment purposes. Property management services include carrying out inspections required by property law in Australia and admin, including payment of expenses.

Professional property management services are especially important if this is your first time buying a home with rental income in mind. This is largely due to property managers’ knowledge of relevant state law, as property laws vary from state to state. For instance, property inspection requirements in Sydney may differ from those in Melbourne.

Poor advice at any stage of the purchase process can cost you, as a first-time home buyer, dearly.

Good advice, on the other hand, will save you money when buying your first home, and will make you money if you’re buying your first home as a profit-generating investment.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT AM I GETTING FOR MY MONEY THAT I CANNOT ACHIEVE MYSELF?

Buying quality Sydney real estate is a full time job. Propertybuyer offers you a professional buyer’s agent that is constantly working to find the right property for you. We will listen to your needs and provide you with independent advice to inform your decision. Our buyers agents understand both the national and Sydney real estate market values intimately.Our relationships with selling agents provide you with even more opportunities and information than the average home buyer. Once the right home is found they are highly experienced in appraising the value of the property and negotiating, giving you peace of mind and ensuring you pay the right price

WILL A BUYERS’ AGENT LISTEN TO MY NEEDS?

Of course – Listening is the most important aspect of our relationship with you. It is crucial that we fully understand your needs so we can search for your next home looking through ‘your eyes’. By doing this we will find and secure your ideal home faster. Unlike a real-estate agent, we as a buyers’ agency have no vested interest in which house you buy or which group of properties you buy from; all that matters to us is that we find the perfect home for you. That’s why when it comes to buying a home we use your specific wants and needs as our only driver.

HOW WILL I KNOW YOU REALLY UNDERSTAND MY REQUIREMENTS?
(HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY KNOW WHAT I WANT?)

This is a common fear for buyers. That’s why we spend considerable time asking about your needs and wants BEFORE starting the property search process. If possible we like to do this in your home to really understand your personal taste, likes and dislikes. Our buyer’s agents are very good at understanding what home buyers want and they view this as the most important part of their process. They have all learnt the importance of listening to client needs and have been very successful in their roles for a long time.

WILL YOU OVERLOOK PROPERTIES THAT MAY HAVE BEEN OF INTEREST TO ME?

No. We leave no stone unturned when searching for your ideal property. If there is any chance that a property may be of interest to you, we will present it to you and let you choose. It’s often a fine line as we are equally careful not to waste your time, but when in doubt, we will ask you the question.

CAN YOU FIND ME OFF-MARKET PROPERTIES?

Absolutely. Each buyer’s agent is well respected in their local areas and they maintain professional relationships with selling agents to access to many silent-listings. Our buyers’ agents will routinely contact selling agents on our extensive database and constantly ask for and receive off-market homes/ listings.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE THAT I WILL HAVE FOUND AND BOUGHT A HOME AT THE END OF THE PROCESS?

We have successfully purchased homes for more than 98% of our clients. Those not proceeding usually comprise of people who have had change to their personal circumstances and are no longer looking to buy a house.

Propertybuyer is currently the most awarded Buyers Agency in Australia, and this public scrutiny is an unbiased testament to our integrity, value and quality of service. We guarantee not to waste your valuable time by sourcing inappropriate properties. We will deflect all the stress and detail and save you months of endless searching. We will spend time with you up front so that we clearly understand your needs and will target the search based on your preferences.

With our help, you will save time, money and stress in the purchase of your next home. You will also gain access to more properties, be better informed about comparable sales and understand the true value of each property. When you decide on the right property, we will negotiate for you so you will be able to make a rational decision about price without the stress and pressure of dealing with real estate agents or having to negotiate.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS AND HOW LONG WILL BUYING A HOUSE TAKE?

First of all we like to sit down and just listen to your preferences. This way we can fully understand your needs.

Following this, our services are explained and we can answer any questions you may have. Once you are comfortable to proceed, you sign an agreement and an engagement fee is paid. We then further discuss your “buyers brief” and then the property search begins.

We conduct thorough research and then present you with a shortlist of the homes and properties which might be of interest to you. If you wish to pursue any of the chosen properties, we then conduct a full appraisal of the property and negotiate on your behalf. The decision to buy the house is then yours. We are committed to finding you the right home, no matter how long it takes, but in our experience the entire process usually takes between 3 to 6 weeks.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BUYERS’ AGENT AND A SELLING AGENT?

buyers’ agent works exclusively for the buyer, whereas the selling agent works for the vendor (seller). By law an agent cannot act for (and accept a commission) from both parties in the transaction. We, being buyers’ agents, work exclusively for you, the homebuyer, and will help you negotiate with the selling agent to secure the best price and the right terms on the house of your choice.

DO BUYERS’ AGENTS ASSIST OR GET PAID BY THE SELLER?

No. We never sell property or accept sales commission from vendors nor their agents. This is what sets propertybuyer apart. We are totally independent and work exclusively in our clients’ best interest to find a property that meets their needs. We have no vested interest in the selling of specific property, our only driver is the buyer’s satisfaction in finding the right house.

HOW WILL I KNOW WHAT THE PROPERTY IS WORTH?

We conduct extensive due diligence for our clients on recent sales and have access to a comprehensive database of all past sales. We inspect each home for sale and discuss the positives and negatives of each shortlisted property.

We are also aware of recent sales and ongoing negotiations in the Sydney real estate market and properties in the area.

Using this information, together with our own expert opinion on the state of the market provides our clients with the assurance they are not overpaying. In fact, our clients usually find they are buying at a price below market and comparable values.

DO I HAVE TO BE “RICH AND FAMOUS” TO BE ABLE TO AFFORD A BUYERS’ AGENT?

Definitely not. We assist individuals, couples and families of all budgets. In addition, we’ll also assist you in saving money by doing extensive research and analysis, looking at comparable property sales and market data, and by negotiating hard to secure the best price, terms and conditions possible. With a buyers’ agent you will make an informed choice and will be confident that you have bought well, whatever your budget. It’s a small investment to make when you consider the expert advice and savings you will make when you buy your ideal house!
