Episode 403 | Do You Need a Buyers Agent in Today’s Market? (Part 2)

Continuing from last week’s episode, we’re back with PART 2 of Do You Need a Buyers Agent in Today’s Market?  

As we’ve said since our earliest podcast episodes, folks end up paying in 1 of 4 ways, and choosing to work with a Buyers Agent means you’re also choosing to pay in the best way… (especially in today’s market, you don’t want to be paying in any of the other ways…) 

This week we’ll be diving deeper into this concept and unpacking the 5 benefits that Buyers Agents bring to property hunters – especially in today’s turbulent market  

We’ll be covering… 

  1. Experience: Like why is it important for Buyers Agents to “pound the pavement” daily?  And how can you actually select an experienced one?
  2. Negotiation: The 3 Reasons Buyers Agents negotiate better (Have you heard of Gazumping??) Plus some real examples of effective negotiation that’s led to price reduction…. 
  3. Emotional Guidance: ONE of the key things Buyers Agents apply to save you lots of head (and heart) ache later down the track… 
  4. Time-Saving: The Magic of Momentum and Curation  
  5. Money Saving: Why PROCRASTINATION will cost you the most and other ways you pay… 

And so much more!   

We’re also welcoming back an extremely special Winter Series Guest who’s weighing in on whether the cost of a Buyers Agent is truly worth the benefits ~ stay tuned to find out who it is! 😉  


Tune in now folks, we’re driving this one home with a bang!  

P.S. Make sure to stick around till the end to hear Ben unpack PICA and PIPA’s newest findings on whether rent has kept up with inflation (and if you’re a landlord we want to hear your experiences – fill out PIPA’s 2022 Sentiment Survey here and have your thoughts heard!!)
