Property Buyers Consultant

Estate agents are employed to sell property, paid to achieve the best price and terms for the seller and are legally accountable to hold the sellers best interests at heart.

The seller has their estate agent, their lawyer and the buyer. The buyer has no one and is unfortunately left to their own devices. This imbalance can have serious repercussions. A Property Buyers consultant is there to work for the buyer and the buyer alone.

Consider that SAHomeBuyers as your Property Buyers consultant offers you the following:

  • Clients of a Property Buyers Consultant benefit from a wider and more thorough search.

  • A Property Buyers Consultant can access to all Constantia Properties for sale whether listed with an estate agent or being sold privately. Often a Property Buyers Consultant can also source more “unique” properties as well as off plan developments prior to them being released to the general market.

  • Clients using a Property Buyers Consultant save money

  • The majority of buyers view the asking price as an estimate of the properties value and base negotiations around this. In reality the asking price is a price provided by the selling agent who is acting for the seller to achieve the maximum sales price. Through industry experience, current market knowledge, research and access to the appropriate historical records, a buyers agent will evaluate and appraise the true value of the property.

    Then through negotiation skills we negotiate the best possible purchase price, potentially saving hundreds of thousands (and in some cases millions) of rand for the client.

  • Clients using a Property Buyers Consultant can buy with more confidence

  • For those buyers who are not aware, when making an offer to buy a property, an offer to purchase agreement (OTP) is completed. This OTP is a pre printed document supplied by the estate agent (yes the one who works for the seller). It is legally binding, it often contains a clause saying the equivalent as sold as seen and it has no cooling off period. Furthermore it has a lot of legal ‘lingo’ and a small area for you to insert any suspensive conditions.

    To contemplate completing this with just the selling agent, and without any expert or legal help, is inviting risk into your purchase. For many of us buying a house is a transaction we cannot afford to get wrong. A Property Buyers Consultant provides you with that expert help and legal expertise that is so important.

  • A better buying experience

  • Estate agents are only paid on the sale of a property. They incur all the costs of advertising it and promoting it through websites, media and show days. No sale no fee and a lost investment of marketing money.

    Therefore it is course a more pressured environment in which you having to make an important decision as to whether to buy a particular property or not. Typically this involves selling agents calling you, asking for feedback, asking you to make an offer or trying to get you to see more properties that they have for sale.

    A Property Buyers Consultant deals with all agents on your behalf. As buyers consultants SAHomeBuyers do not have the stress of trying to sell you a property in a certain period of time. A Property Buyers Consultant is unashamedly biased towards you the buyer and works in your best interests.

Summary

Buying a property is a huge investment of time, money and emotion. For many it is the largest financial transaction they will even make. For all of us it is essential the property carries out the exact task it was bought for.
