Buyer Tips

When you’re buying a house, finding an agent is never easy, but it doesn’t have to be that way. A buyer advocate can help you through the entire purchase process: from providing housing value appraisals and negotiation services to helping you find the right home inspector and mortgage broker. And with our extensive real estate knowledge and experience, we can guide you to make informed decisions without having to worry about getting taken advantage of by agents of the seller.

In a market where sellers tend to be catered to more than buyers, a buyers’ advocate is an invaluable asset. When you buy a property, you probably have a lot going on in your life. It can be stressful and time-consuming to search for the right property and negotiate with sellers. Someone who has your best interests at heart and works hard to get you the best deal possible is simply priceless.

What does the buyers advocate do?

A buyer advocate offers two types of services

If you have your eye on a particular property , the buyer’s advocate can help you find it. Or, if you prefer to let an expert handle the transaction for you, they can bid for the property at auction on your behalf.


The importance of having a topnotch team is that your employees will always be motivated and give their best effort in achieving their goals because they believe in what they’re doing.

Buyers agents have the potential to save you money although they are not always able to do so. First, just because someone is a buyers agent does not necessarily mean that they can save you money. A buyers agent can only negotiate down upon request. There are many factors that are beyond these individuals control, i.e., the seller’s agent, the seller, etc.

A buyer’s agent can sometimes save you money, but it depends on the situation. First of all, just because someone is a buyers agent does not automatically mean that they can save you money. A buyer’s agent cannot negotiate down without the consent of the seller’s agent. However, if the seller isn’t interested in negotiating, there’s nothing your buyer’s agent can do.

Here are six reasons why you should consider hiring a potential buyer

Save time

Finding the ideal place to live can be difficult, especially in major cities. While scrolling through ads on an online classified platform is enough for viewing, you need to take time off work to go to the open house yourself. What's more is that your potential home might be shown on multiple sites with similar times and dates. You end up wasting time driving back and forth.

Auction

If you're new to the bidding process, it can be stressful and intimidating — so we've compiled some useful strategies and tricks on how to win an auction and get a great deal. First, understand that the first few seconds of an auction are crucial — if you start too high, you can scare away bidders and cause your item to lose value.

Save money

Our property agents have years of experience helping clients find the right property for their needs. As part of our service, they will help you understand property prices in your area, even if property prices are flexible or fixed, depending on the seller's situation.

Access

Some listings are never posted online. These usually belong to sellers who don't want to cut out any agency or buyers who fall in love with the home and want to conduct their own transaction. A lower supply of listings makes it more difficult for buyers to find what they're looking for. Because of this, your buyers advocate is likely to find you a better price on off-market properties.

Emotional connection

Our team has no emotional investment in your property type, which means they can look at the market from an outsider's perspective — meaning we can help you get better value for your property by helping you see the wider landscape of what's available.

Beneficial

When it comes to purchasing investment property, there are several things that need to be taken into consideration; one of them is hiring an agent. A real estate agent can help you choose the right property in your chosen area. Additionally, they will assist in negotiating the price of the property. If you are not confident in handpicking a great piece of property or concluding a deal, there are services like buyer advocate such as Local Knowledge.
