What is a Buyer Advocate?

A Buyer Advocate or Buyer Agent assists the Buyer through the property purchase process. Just as a Real estate agent works exclusively for the Seller, the Buyer Advocate works exclusively for the Buyer.

Buying a property can be one of the biggest purchases in your life, and a Buyer Advocate can support you through that process to help you avoid any costly mistakes.

The Property Garden are experts in the Melbourne property market and we will work with you to understand your needs and to ensure that you buy the right property at the right price for you.

The Property Garden are Licensed Estate Agents and meet Victorian Licensing Requirements.

Why use a Buyer Advocate?

Buying a property whether as a home or an investment can be complex and time consuming with many factors to consider such as financial, emotional and personal circumstances.

Then when you eventually find a property that you think is suitable, you will either have to negotiate with a qualified Real estate agent working for the Seller who negotiates maximum prices for a living, or run the risk of overpaying at an auction. Or there may be inherent problems with the property which you may not spot given the Real estate agent will only point out the positives.

Using a Buyer Advocate can and will help you with this process that needs to be planned and well executed. The Property Garden will:

  • Save you time: We will do the searching for you and only present properties that suit your requirements. Don’t waste hours on the internet and months of weekends at open for inspections.
  • Save you money: You will know fair value and potential hidden costs. Don’t overpay for your property.
  • Help you avoid stress: We will make the process easy for you.
  • Be your Melbourne property market expert: We are experts in the Melbourne property market. Our Buyer Advocates have over 19 years’ experience in the real estate industry.
  • Give you access to off market properties: We have relationships with Real estate agents in the Greater Melbourne area who we will be speaking to on your behalf to secure properties before they hit the market.
  • Conduct an objective full property assessment: We will fully assess the strengths and weaknesses of a property with an objective view. Avoid purchasing the wrong property.
  • Protect you from the real estate agent: We deal with the real estate agent on your behalf. The agent will say and do things, including playing on your emotions, to obtain the highest price possible for the property from you. With a Buyer Advocate, the only time you will speak to the agent is when you are signing the contract of sale.
  • Negotiate on your behalf: The buying strategy is crucial to securing the property at the right price. This includes private sale negotiations, pre-Auction offers and bidding at Auction. Our Buyer Advocates understand the drivers behind Seller and Real estate agent decisions and will use these to obtain the best outcome for you.
