  • Where the loyalty of the estate agents in Constantia must lie? – Property buyers should not be under any illusions that the estate agent works for them. As trained professionals estate agents are retained to work for the sellers of property.
  • How the estate agents in Constantia get paid – Reward comes in the form of a commission. Importantly payable only when a property is sold . Furthermore the estate agent must spend money in order to advertise and show the property- all at their own risk. If there is no sale within the mandates specified time period there is no fee earned. Again this re-emphasises who the selling agent works for.
  • Are (the buyers) interests taken care of by the estate agents in Constantia – There are certain moral and ethical responsibilities towards the buyer that must be adhered to. This however cannot conflict with their primary role – to look after the seller, their client.
  • Who compiles the offer to purchase ? In 99% of cases it is the estate agents in Constantia who compile the offer to purchase with the seller. Unless you have a legal back ground it makes no sense to complete a legally binding contract for millions of rands without any professional legal opinion. Especially when the contract has no cooling off period.
  • Can I hold the estate agent liable for defects found later? – Below we quote from

“Far too many Buyers want to hold their Estate Agents liable for latent defects they only discover sometime after the sale has been concluded. This is particularly the case where a defect has only been discovered months after the transfer has been registered and the Seller can no longer be traced. An Estate Agent is only obliged to inspect the property for obvious patent defects, to enquire from a Seller as to what known latent defects exist, and to then disclose them before signature to the Buyer.

Once having done this the Buyer’s recourse is against the Seller alone. Often a Seller, on being challenged about an undisclosed latent defect, will falsely claim that he had informed the agent about it prior to the sale. A Buyer’s recourse will inevitably rest against the Seller alone and the Estate Agent should not be harassed in any way.”

In short the estate agents in Constantia do exactly what they should do:

  • Provide marketing exposure for the property to attract interest in it
  • Show the property to potential buyers and ‘selling its attributes’
  • Convince the buyer to pay the highest price to their client (the seller)
  • Negotiate the best terms and conditions for their client (the seller)

So what difference will a buyers consultant make?

It’s as simple as “the estate agents in Constantia are there to act for the seller – the buyers consultant is there to act for the buyer”.

Buyers consultants will:

  • Act specifically in the buyers best interests
  • Can access all appropriate property on the market, whether via our comprehensive network of estate agents in Constantia or if it is a private sale
