Are you currently based overseas – maybe you’re living in Singapore or Hong Kong at the moment – but thinking about moving back to Sydney? Perhaps you’re considering buying a new home when you arrive back in Australia but are unsure where to begin. If so, perhaps it’s time to consider hiring a buying agent to help you with your big move.
Why it’s a good idea to hire a buying agent
A buying agent is legally bound to act in your best interests. This means that you have someone on your side when you’re house hunting for a Sydney home, and this person can advise you on the best steps to take.
Buying a property is complicated, and buying a property while you’re still overseas more so. With a buying agent, the process is simplified. The agent can help you to refine what it is you want from your new home, and take the time searching for your perfect pad, while you get on with other important things in life.
A buying agent can save you time
A buying agent will have a chat with you to decide what it is you want from your new Sydney home. This can be in the form of a face-to-face meeting, which helps you to truly get your point across about what it is you want from your new property. Then, the buying agent will go and visit certain properties that meet these requirements on your behalf. They will then come back to you with a shortlist of the best properties they’ve viewed.
This is the perfect scenario if you’re not in the country and unable to view the properties yourself.
Furthermore, if you’re keen on a home, the buying agent can organise someone to go into the house and inspect it for you, before connecting you with recommended professionals like mortgage brokers and solicitors, so you have everything you need to complete the sale.
A buying agent can save you money
There’s no doubt that it can be expensive to fly to Australia, simply to go house hunting. By cutting out these costs and having the buying agent create a housing shortlist for you, you will save huge amounts of money.
Furthermore, if you travel to Sydney simply to find a home you like, if you make an offer on a place you will most likely want to settle the sale before you go back to the country you’re currently residing in. This time pressure can sometimes mean you don’t get the best deal. With a buying agent negotiating on your behalf, you have all the time in the world to complete the sale, and therefore you’ll be able to get a better price.
A buyers’ agent makes the purchasing process easy
Some things are better left to the experts. By calling on a buyers’ agent to help you out with your purchase, you can ensure the process will be smooth sailing. You can relax, while someone else does the hard work for you!
