Buying a property in Albert Park can be a daunting and difficult process. For many of us, buying property is something we only do a few times in our lives.

A buyers advocate (also known as a buyers agent or property finder) can be an enormous help when buying a home or investment property by:

  • removing the stress and frustration of buying a home
  • saving you time and allowing you to get your weekends back
  • saving you from having to deal with the tactics of real estate agents

Questions such as “where can I find a home I can afford”, “am I paying too much?”, “where can I find someone to bid for me at auction” are easily answered with the assistance of a buyer’s agent specialising in the Albert Park area.

A buyers advocate can manage the entire buying process for you or, where you have found a property, negotiate on your behalf with the agent or bid at auction for you.

WE MAKE IT EASY to get your weekends back and find the perfect home or investment property in Albert Park for a LOW FLAT FIXED FEE. We guide you through the entire process, from selecting a home, market appraisal, negotiating/bidding to the final inspection, and help you purchase with confidence.

We also offer a service for vendors selling in Albert Park. We offer our Vendor Advocacy service to our sellers at NO CHARGE.
