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

Folks, a good investment property is just like a bricks and mortar bank account!!

(Yep, that’s another great analogy from Bryce – just wait till you hear the cow one too!)  

This means – it doesn’t need to have all the looks; it just needs to be investment grade. 

And this is exactly where Buyers Agents come in!!  

Ep 18 The Property Couch tips - What is a Buyers Agent and Do You Need One

In today’s episode we’ll be taking a look under the bonnet and hearing what a Buyers Agent’s life is like, unpacking their role in the property market and discussing what the KEY advantages of using them are!  

Of course, since we’re sharing WHY you need a Buyers Agent, we’ll also be revealing WHERE you can find some great ones!   

And we think we’re both in pretty good spots to explain it as we’re both experienced, qualified and licensed Buyers Agents in multiple states across Australia!  

We’ll be sharing some stories from our past… 

…PLUS we’ll discuss the role professional bodies such as the Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia (REBAA) and the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) play in the property market.  

Loads of good stuff in today’s episode, tune in now folks!
