I had been looking for my dream home for a while now, but after inspecting a lot of houses I hadn’t found anything I wanted to buy. It was becoming frustrating since I had a full-time job and two children and I didn’t have the time to dedicate to the search.
I was talking to my friend one day when she suggested that I hire a buyer’s advocate. Hampton had lots of these, apparently, but if I was honest, I didn’t know what they were. I had never heard of them before. My friend was one of those friends who knew a bit about everything, and she explained to me that they were experts in the property market and their job was essentially to help me find my perfect home. I went away from our regular catch-up and decided to jump online to have a look at what she was talking about. One of the main things I saw was the buyer’s advocate cost. Melbourne buyer’s advocates were some of the best in the country, so their price reflected that.
I found one that fit my budget and arranged a consultation to discuss what I needed in my home. This particular buyer’s advocate was incredibly knowledgeable about the local property market and asked detailed questions about the type of house I was looking for, the location, and my budget. I gave all the information I could and even showed some examples of past houses I had inspected that were close to what I wanted in a home. Based on this information, the advocate began to search for properties that met my criteria.
The buyer’s advocate came back to me a week later with a few different properties. I looked through them and none of them really jumped out at me, but the buyer’s advocate wasn’t deterred. This was her job, after all. Finally, after another two weeks, she found the perfect property for me. She also helped me navigate the negotiation process so that I could get the property at a fair price. Now that I know what a buyer’s advocate is, I’ll definitely be recommending them to anyone who is looking to buy a new home.
