Finding the right investment property can be incredibly time consuming and stressful but you can engage a buyer’s agent to complete all of the leg work for you. This can include the necessary market research, inspection of properties and the negotiation of the acquisition of the property. A good buyer’s agent works in your best interests, unlike a selling agent which is obliged to secure the best deal for the seller.
It’s important to understand the difference between a good buyer’s agent and a property spruiker. Typically, a good buyer’s agent will consider your investment goals and financial position when recommending which property to buy. They will also work on a fee-for-service model, meaning you’ll have to pay for their advice. Alternatively, a property spruiker may not charge you much, if anything, and have a stock list of properties ready to buy.
