In a heated market there is plenty of opportunity to buy well if you can find the right property and buy it fast.
It’s all about numbers. Some buyers think that they are getting access to absolutely everything. After all, they say, “I’m getting alerts sent to my email”.
Turning up on a Saturday with the masses to an Open Home is probably not the best strategy to purchase property. The agent doesn’t know you (and does not need you, as there are plenty of buyers). Some selling agents are the masters of under quoting and hold out false hope. Overall, it can be very time consuming.
A good Buyers Agent is on the front line each and every day, full time. They also get access to silent listings – off market or pre-market, private sellers and sellers who may need a quick sale. This is a fantastic advantage for the astute purchaser looking for a deal, as they gain access to good properties from vendors (and selling agents) who want an easy transaction.
