Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) CPP40307
Buyers Agents Course - NSW
The arduous task of first finding the right type of property, then contacting the real estate agent, going to countless open houses and then negotiating the price of the home you have your heart set on are all things most of us would avoid if we could.
Buyer‘s agents are licensed professionals that specialise in searching, evaluating and negotiating the purchase of property on behalf of the buyer. They do not sell real estate.
The key difference between a buyer‘s agent and a traditional selling agent is who they represent. A buyer‘s agent works exclusively for the buyer, whereas the selling agent works for the vendor (seller). By law an agent cannot act for (and accept a commission) from both parties in the transaction.
Most buyer‘s agents offer at least two levels of service, the full search service, whereby the buyer‘s agent actively searches the market and shortlists properties meeting the specific criteria of the client and then evaluates and negotiates the recommended property. The negotiation or auction bidding only service – this is where the client finds the property and engages the buyers agent to evaluate and negotiate a private treaty or bid at auction.
Using a buyer‘s agent to purchase real estate is becoming more widespread throughout Australia as investors and home buyers understand the benefits they provide. A professional buyer‘s agent can provide you with all the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about the value of a property without all of the sales ?hype often generated by sales agents and glossy brochures.
