Episode 018 | What is a Buyers Agent and Do You Need One?

We’ve all heard about real estate agents before but how much do you know about a Buyers Agent? Although this role is getting increasingly popular in Australia, not many investors are using one and some may not even know why they should use a buyers agent to start with. Ep 18 The Property Couch tips - What is a Buyers Agent and Do You Need OneSo this time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley help our listeners understand what is a Buyers Agent, what do they actually do, how do you find a good one and do you need one when you are buying your investment property?

A great analogy that Bryce used in this podcast is an investment property is like a bricks and mortar bank account. It doesn’t need to be pretty and all. It only needs to be investment-grade. And one of they key advantages of using a Buyers Agent is that you leverage on the skills and experience of a professional to help you find the best possible property for you. Both Bryce and Ben are experienced, qualified and licensed buyers agent in multiple states across Australia and in this podcast they share some of their recent stories – the successes and the challenges they and their clients face. They will also be discussing about the role professional bodies such as REBAA and PIPA play in this space.
