BUYERS ADVOCATES IN MELBOURNE
A buyer’s agent/ buyer advocate takes all the legwork out of finding a property, whether you need assistance in difference areas like from a buyers advocate hawthorn, buyers advocate Toorak, buyers advocate brighton, buyers advocate melbourne. Many buyer’s agents focus on owner-occupiers needs, which we do. We believe you also need a buyer’s agent specialising in helping investors and this is what we focus on. This involves a different set of criteria to find the best property for you.
As buyer’s agents we often meet people who unfortunately have trusted a real estate agent when buying an established property, or they have trusted a property marketing company when buying a new (not yet built property or off the plan). There is a better way; buyer’s agents represent the buyer. Real estate agents and property marketing companies represent the seller. All my clients appreciate the value in using a buyers advocate. I believe we are one of the best buyer’s advocates in Melbourne and around the country. Our awards support this belief.
Research and due diligence is the most important thing to do when buying an investment property. Knowing which areas to buy in for capital growth or for cash flow around Australia. The fact we are not limited to one state or one property type or strategy is important for all investors. It is important to have a balanced approach to capital growth and cash flow, reducing the likelihood of running out of equity or borrowing capacity with a bank.
Whether established property, house and land, townhouse, unit, cash flow, capital growth, inner city, regional, interstate, we will find it for you. When considering investing, so often people don’t appreciate the time it takes to find the right property, they end up going around in circles, trying to sift through the seemingly limitless choices available, whilst actually not really understanding or appreciating there are very few properties that are considered investment grade properties. Often you will end up going to many open house inspections, then perhaps an auction, or negotiation, only then to miss out, and do it all again spending hours on realestate.com.au.
Investors need to understand what street the property is on, what it’s near to, aspect, size, layout, yield, tenant demand, supply and demand, covenants on the property, then to have a property inspection that could highlight potential issues, which could lead you to pull out of the contract and start the process all over again. You need to consider settlement period, terms of agreement and clauses as well. Our negotiation process could save you the same if not more than the buyer’s agent fee, compared to negotiating yourself, we negotiate every day, and know what to do. There is considerable time required to find the right property, which often investors don’t realise until they try it themselves.
With Covid, many misguided yet trusted institutions predicted massive losses in property. One major bank stated a predicted drop of up to 30% drop in prices. Those that used a buyer advocate quickly learned how false this information was, and how way off the mark and speculate it was.
Whether you searched in Google ‘buyers advocates Melbourne/ buyer advocates Melbourne/buyer advocate Melbourne/ buyer’s advocate Melbourne, buyers advocate Hawthorn, buyers advocate Toorak, buyers advocates Brighton or simply buyer advocate, buyers advocate or best buyers advocate Melbourne doesn’t matter. What matters is you use someone, such as APAG that possesses the education, knowledge and experience to provide you the quality service you are after.
We research both capital growth and high positive cash flow properties, properties producing a return of even up to 14% yield pa.
There are some suburbs that are the worst places to invest like Gympie, Toowoomba and Ipswich, yet at the same time they can be good places as well, the difference is determined by the type of dwelling, the number of rooms, and the location of the property within the suburb. It’s not just the suburb that you should rely on, as this could lose you a lot of money or make you money, it is the ‘where’ within the suburb and the ‘what’.
