There has long been an argument about buyer’s agents and whether the pros out weigh the cons. In our mind it’s a pretty simple equation. Engaging a GOOD buyer’s agent is a good idea, however there are some things to look out for! Typically you wouldn’t make a significant investment decision without consulting a financial advisor, or buy a second hand car without speaking to a mechanic. Buying property presents equally significant opportunities and risks, so why act without the proper guidance? Many buyers agents ask for an “engagement fee” or a “set-fee” before they have even delivered an outcome. It is important that they stay motivated to getting you the best deal, and this doesn’t happen if you have already paid them!
