Buying a property in Parkville can be a daunting and difficult process. For many of us, it 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 to make it easy to buy 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 Parkville 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.
