Why choose iBuy Property Buyers Agency
We know that buying a property can have many challenges. As a full-service buyers agency, we are client-focused, finding your dream home or investment property at the right price.
Houses we have sourced for our clients…
Ask us any question...
You make your money when you buy, so why wouldn’t you bring a gun to a gun fight? (not forgetting that the sales agent is a trained professional). We search, inspect, negotiate, bid at auction, deal with property professionals every single day, we get pretty good at it (much like your job/career).
The average buyer just does not have the knowledge, experience, contacts, time, tools, confidence to pull off the deals as quick as a Buyer’s Agent (they simply don’t have the time, let alone the expertise needed to gamble with such a large purchase. If you are not an experienced property buyer and you find yourself in a race to secure that dream property that you have eventually found and you are in the race up against a buyers agent, you will miss out on the property or overpay.
The difference between a buyer’s agent and a selling agent is who they represent. A Buyer’s Agent exclusively represents the Buyer and the Selling Agent exclusively represents the vendor (seller).
A Buyer’s Agent will search for your property and secure it for the absolute lowest price and a seller’s agent will sell the property and achieve the highest possible price.
If you do not have a Buyer’s Agent representing you, the seller will be in a better position to negotiate as they will have the only professional on their side of the deal.
Yes, we have great relationships that have been built up over the years with local real estate agents, combined with our reputation and longevity, properties are constantly brought to us prior to them being advertised.
Also sellers call to see if any clients are on the books that want to buy their property as they may not want to go through a real estate agent, sellers also advertise themselves in various outlets and if any suitable clients are on board, this seller is contacted and an inspection is arranged.
All properties are then qualified, and inspected to see if they’re suitable for any one of our clients.
We have a large team of agents where we pool all our off market opportunities together (as we constantly speak of our clients) so we know what might be out there that might suit our team.. creating more opportunities than most.
In short, we operate in Sydney metropolitan areas as well as some coastal and regional areas in NSW.
Our office is located in Bondi Junction so the bulk of our business happens in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. Michael services the North shore (upper and lower) and northern districts as well as the Northern Beaches areas. Walter looks after the Sydney metropolitan areas as he’s happy to look after the CBD, Inner West and Southern Suburbs, Northern Districts, Hills District and West.
We’ve bought in the Central Coast and the Blue Mountains as well as the Hunter Valley and Cronulla. We have a presence in Byron Bay as we’ve bought a few there and we can also refer you to other trusted Buyer’s Agents through our affiliations should you wish to purchase in other states.
The first thing we need to establish is what the property is worth (a lot of buyers struggle with this as they’re not out there looking at everything and understanding locations etc).
We then look at comparable sales in the same suburb in the same neighborhood and do a full CMA report (Comparable Market Analysis report) the same on that the selling agent would’ve prepared for the seller (so were singing from the same book). Once you know what a property is worth you can move forward and negotiate with confidence, and the relationship with the agent means that they can tell us things they can’t necessarily tell you about the seller and what price they’re actually looking to achieve.
All this then helps us to determine the best strategy on how to negotiate on that particular property. A good relationship with a selling agent can assist with inside knowledge and help with the negotiation by previewing properties before listing and understanding the real price the vendor wants. A selling agent is much more likely to deal with a buyer’s agent they know and trust, versus a buyer who they have never seen because they are more confident they won’t be made to look a fool of later (when they don’t show up with the signed contract they promised.. making the agent look unprofessional in front of his clients).
Depending on the industry experience of the buyer’s agent you employ, for a full search, inspection, due diligence and negotiation service, the industry average fee is somewhere between 2% and 3% of the purchase price, plus GST and an engagement fee to get started, or a flat fee flat fee based on the purchase price and an engagement fee. You may also want to engage your buyer’s agent to negotiate only on a property you have found yourself, or attend an auction on your behalf and bid. These fees can be tailored depending on the level of service required.
We believe that your buyers agent should have a few grey hairs in order to be half qualified.. in other words, I don’t’ think I would entrust a younger version of myself to do what took me years to perfect.
Our agents have been in the industry for a long time and understand how to put a deal together as well as what to look for in a property and will guide you through the process and secure a deal if we believe it’s the best deal we can do, otherwise.. there’s always another property!
We are also investors who understand that each purchase has to make our clients money and what to look for in those (and every) property. We have also been involved in many renovations so we have a trained eye in what to look for in order to add value as well as buy well to have some equity in the game from day one.
We understand that the partnership with your buyers agent is first and foremost as you have to feel comfortable with each other to able to work together, so were always looking for the ‘right fit’ to make sure we get the right result as well as create the raving fan (hence 90% of our business is on a referral or a repeat basis).
We believe consumers should look for the following qualities when looking to engage a buyer’s agent:
Look for agents who have 10-20 years’ experience in the real estate industry (why would you pay someone with less than 10 years experience when you don’t have to?). It is also worth finding out about their most recent purchases (how much money they saved on each one).
Check with the relevant state’s department of fair trading to ensure they are appropriately licensed and insured. They should also have the relevant qualifications.
Check them outAttend a few open for inspections in their area and ask the selling agents what they think of them… also ask them if they think they buy well.. or do they overpay?
A good agent will have a wide network of selling agents to access properties off-market and earlier than the general public, so make sure they’re well known.
A solid track record
Ask for references from at least three recent clients who you can contact to discuss their experience with the agent.
Look at their own real estate journey and ask, how many properties do they own? Have they renovated in the past? How long have they been studying the market…?
- A full buying service (search, due diligence, negotiate).
- A negotiation only package, where you find the property and we’ll negotiate a deal for you.
- An auction bidding service (iBid) where we can save you money and make sure you know when to walk away as well.
There is a common misunderstanding that buyer’s agents are just ‘for the wealthy’ and not for the average home buyer. We buy in all price ranges and buy for investor, first home buyers and owner occupiers. An investment in a professional who’s been buying property for 10 or 20 years or more, who has the contacts and knows how to negotiate, is actually making you money and saving you money all in the same transaction.
You wouldn’t sell a property without engaging a selling agent, although a lot of buyers are still happy to go it alone when buying a property.. although you make your money when you buy (not when you sell) and buying well is definitely the key to all this.
Buying the wrong property and overpaying are just two of the biggest risks you face, or not doing anything at all as a lot of buyers decide to give up when they miss out a few times, which then is a much bigger cost more than engaging a professional.
Engaging a buyer’s agent is a heavily weighted decision, this is why we ensure that all your questions are answered openly and honestly, we pride ourselves on being as transparent as possible with all our clients.
