What Is A Buyer’s Agent?
Buyer’s agents are licensed real estate professionals that focus on looking after you, the buyer. Whereas your stock standard real estate agent normally represents the seller’s best interests.
They should be completely in your corner. They specialize in finding, evaluating and negotiating to purchase a property on your behalf. Buyer’s agents will tailor their service to suit your personal needs. Whether you are looking for one property, an entire portfolio or need an expert to bid at an auction on your behalf.
Will I save money using a buyer’s agent?
Most buyer’s agents charge a flat rate for their services. They may be tailored per property or to the extent of service you need. Some agents may charge a percentage of the value of the property (commission).
At DDP Property, our buyer’s agents charge a flat rate. Instead of being motivated by big commissions.. Their mission is to help you invest in the right properties at the right price and pace. They want to help set you up for life.
It is recommended to avoid buyer’s agents that work off commission because they may not always act in your best interests.
Most of the time, buyer’s agent costs are tax-deductible when you are purchasing an investment property.
What are the benefits of using a buyer’s agent?
