Buying property is a very tough process for the inexperienced buyer, particularly in the Melbourne property market. Is it an Auction, Private sale, or Tender? How do you know what the market is really doing? Am I paying too much? Will I miss out? Is this the right one?

The whole buying process can be very intimidating and if you are unsure about what you are doing, this may result in wrong decisions being made. Such as an unsuitable property being purchased or missing out on the one you really like. I don’t know how many times I have heard, “I wish I had purchased the first one I saw, if only I knew what I know now…”

As buyer advocates our job is to inform our clients about the property market; the good, the bad and the ugly of particular properties. Buyer advocates provide information and then lay out the options. We aim for our clients to make informed decisions about their purchases. We know when to take action to secure the right property for the right price on the right terms…. We’ve been doing this for years.

Experience in the market place is critical in order to make informed decisions. We have a track record of successful purchases. We are skilled negotiators, be it auction or private sale.
