A Buyers Agent is a person or agent appointed by another person to assist them in the purchase of a property. Investate provides Buyers Agents Services to anyone looking to purchase in the Brisbane property market.

The Buyers Agent will establish the requirements of the persons seeking to purchase a property in much the same way as a financial planner would.

We help people invest in Real Estate whether it be to live in or as an investment. I take the time to find out your requirements and goals for the property and your preferences. From there I enter your data into a number of systems that will firstly notify the best real estate agents in that area that we are looking for a property and then it goes into a completely automated search spider that looks through hundreds of property listing web sites each day and reports back the latest listings for that day.

I follow the standard financial planning practises to firstly identify your property requirements, your budget and your expectations. From there I work with you to both show you the types of properties that meet your needs and the locations. This process is designed to provide you with a basic level of education in regards to the Brisbane property market, typical properties  available and the type of tenants we target.

I help anyone from local people to interstate and overseas buyers who need help identifying a suitable property. I provide ongoing local market education to our customers so that they themselves can make an informed decision on the recommended properties being presented.

Investing in Brisbane Real Estate has a number of pitfalls for those that do not know the region. We have some very cheap suburbs that are going to stay cheap for a very long time. They may appear on the surface to be a good investment but 2 years later and the property has not achieved any capital growth and the tenants are behind in the rent. It’s my job to show you why and once you see it, you will understand.

A buyers agent is a person who can source property on your behalf and negotiate a reasonable price. Where are real estate agent sells a property on behalf of the vendor. One acts in the interests of the vendor and a buyers agent acts in the interests of the buyer.

With so many years of being on the ground and seeing the market first hand I can advise you of the best places to invest that will have low risk rating and and strong capital growth and return potential. Most buyers agents will direct you to where the media is promoting as a good area. Those markets are too hot and over priced, You need to be buying in the areas the media is going to be talking about and that is something I can bring that not many other buyers agents in Brisbane can.

I go out of my way to provide you with as much information about a property as possible. In the first instance you will get an email from me advising that I have identified a property that matches your needs. From there I will book an inspection with the agent and create a Virtual Property Tour using state of the art 360 degree imaging. This is then uploaded to a website where you can then walk through the property just like i did. This system is so good that we can use it later to reference parts of the property.

I run a number of systems that are designed to identify properties that have not reached the market yet which we call Off Market Transactions and I also have my own custom software that searches hundreds of property web sites throughout Australia for the latest listings. The software takes your requirements and conducts a daily search and provided me with a custom report each day. Using this method I am able to identify properties that others haven’t seen yet.

However the best results come directly from my network of real estate agents who have properties that are coming up for sale and are offered exclusively to may clients as an Off Market Transaction.

I treat each and every property as if it were my own and will continue to look after it well into the future. I provide periodical checks on the property and will provide you with regular updates in addition to those provided by the property management company.

Once you have purchased your property I will introduce you to one of the best property management teams in Brisbane. They always rent my properties out for the right amount and ensure the property is taken care of. Please note I do not accept payments or incentives of any type, if I am recommending a service it’s because I consider the service to be the best around and will look after my clients.

I can source any type of property you need, from units to townhouses to dual income properties to established house and brand new house and land packages.

Off Market, Transaction relates to the purchasing of a property prior to the property being made available to the general public. For example, an agent may have a property that is about to be made available for sale. He may notify a number of Buyers Agents or members of the public who may be interested in purchasing the property prior to the property being advertised.

The effect of an Off-Market Tandasction can be a significant saving on the purchase price of the property as the owner of the property has not had to spend any money on advertising nor make his property available to the public through open homes and private inspections.

The risk of a Queensland residential Property is passed on to the purchaser one business day after the contract date. It is a standard term of the contract that the property is at the buyers Risk from 5.00 pm the next business day after the contract date.

No your property will not flood, we carry out extensive research prior to selecting a property using a number of resources available from local Brisbane councils. We have a page under resources that provides a number of links to check a property or suburb.
