Are Buyers Advocates Worth It?
Normally yes, Buyers Agents do all the work for you so you can just sit back and relax. They can save you time, money, and stress. A real estate expert that’s on your side, Buyers Agents take calculated decisions, not emotional ones. This will help you to not pay too much for a property.
What Does A Buyers Agent/Advocates Do?
A buyer’s agent specialises in scoping out and evaluating properties on behalf of their client, a buyer (i.e. a purchaser). If the buyer is interested in one of the properties introduced to them by the buyer’s agent, that agent can also negotiate the sale on behalf of that buyer/client. In some cases, a buyer may have found a property, but chooses to use a buyer’s agent just to take care of the negotiations or to bid on their behalf if the property is going to auction.
How Much Does A Buyers Agent Cost?
Buyers Agent fees usually start from $500 dollars for attending an Auction and $1000 as success fees. Appraisal and Negotiation fees are 1 %, and a full-service fee is 2%. The percentage costs can be settled to a fixed price, before signing the contract.
Who Pays the Buyer Agents Fees?
A buyers’ agent works exclusively for the buyer, whereas a selling agent works for the vendor (seller). Therefore, Buyers Agent fees are paid by the buyer (you). Remember a buyers’ agent does not sell real-estate.
