Do you really need a real estate agent??
Here are 5 benefits of using an agent that are well worth the commission costs

Tip 1: Assistance with A Bond. Do you know how to apply for a bond? Do you know the amount that you would qualify for? With a Real Estate Agent in your corner you will avoid all of the stress ! Your agent will refer the perfect bond originator to you that will work efficiently to get your bond application ready !

Tip 2: The Perfect Property. One of the first things discussed will be what you are looking for in a home. You won’t be wasting time going to open houses when the property does not meet your standards or are way out of budget. Your agent will have the inside scoop on all of the properties that will suit your needs and help make your dream a reality.

Tip 3: Prepares an Offer. When it comes to buying a house, the initial offer is so important. Your agent will help you craft an offer that impresses the seller, protects you, and makes sense to the price point of the home.

Tip 4: Negotiate The Price. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop at the initial offer. One of the best benefits of using a real estate agent is their negotiation power. More often times than not, they know the area and have the right tools to identify a sales price that is too high, AND they negotiate upon your behalf so you don’t have to.

Tip 5: Conveyancing Attorneys. Your agent will have connections with a lot of the best conveyancing attorneys that will be able to assist you with the sale and be present every step of the way.
