We look for items of the home that were removed or damaged which the contract exclusively included as part of the contract of sale. We ensure the state of the home has not drastically changed or been left in a poor condition from previous owners and tenants.

Our Brisbane buyer’s agents will also ensure their clients arrange insurance on the property upon exchanging contracts to cover any risk that can arise leading up to the settlement date.

With this information we can make recommendations as to how to re-strategise your property portfolio and improve its performance, whether that means, adding value via cosmetic renovations, revaluing the property and using equity to secure another or even selling a property to free up capital that can be worked harder in a better suburb.

FAQ for our Brisbane Buyers Agents

Hiring a buyer’s agent in Brisbane, such as Cohen Handler, means you have a local expert guiding you every step of the way through your property search, to make sure you secure the best property at the right price.

A buyers advocate or buyers agent offers various types of services such as:

Searching and gathering properties that meet your criteria and then negotiating the purchase of that chosen property (whether by auction or private sale.) Depending on your needs, a buyer’s agent may search for one particular property or an entire portfolio, or they can negotiate a better price for you by compiling insights via due diligence and conducting building and pest reports on your chosen property and then developing a negotiation strategy, or they can bid for you at the auction of a property you may have found.

An off-market property is a home that has yet to be advertised to the public and is not yet ‘on the market’. The sellers may have already engaged a selling agent and have a price point in mind, but they might be sitting back or taking their time to prepare before taking the property public. They use this time to see if their agent can attract any interested buyers before they must advertise the property publicly.

There are few surer ways of making money than investing in real estate. You can potentially strengthen your financial position and generate wealth, but it also means you’ll have a product that will be in demand as long as people need a place to rest their heads. But how do you choose your first investment property? There are a few things you’ll need to bear in mind.

Buyers agents and buyers advocates are licensed and regulated real estate professionals who act on behalf of the property buyer. Their purpose is to research, find and negotiate a perfect property for their client.

This is as opposed to a real estate agent who has a contract with the seller and therefore has their best interests at heart. A buyer’s agent will always negotiate in favour of you, their client.

How do you know when you’re getting what you want and what you’re paying for regarding buyer’s agents and their fees?

Or if you’re not? For a full-service offering buyers agents will charge a success-based fee based on a percentage of a property, but for other services may charge a flat fee.
