7 Reasons why the LOCATION Buyers Agent Service is your best way to buy property

  1. If you’re already working long hours, time is precious for you and your family – do you really want to spend weeks, possibly months, canvassing the property market every Saturday? To make a prudent, fully informed choice as to what’s available at what price, you may need to inspect numerous properties and consider many factors before deciding on the ‘right’ one.
  2. We have established a solid reputation and track record among the most respected auction agents and negotiators at all levels of the property market in Southern Sydney, and more particularly in the Sutherland Shire since 2001. This is truly invaluable in all negotiations with the vendors’ agents when we are representing you, as our buyer client, and in all auction scenarios, where our experience will definitely advantage you against competition from other buyers.
  3. We have been viewing and analysing property in detail since 2001 in Southern Sydney – it is a passion and a skill that we continue to hone and develop. We know the details you need to know about certain streets, suburbs and areas before you buy – you will have the benefit of years of research, knowledge, experience and specific understanding of the local real estate market, from budget value investment units to prestige penthouse apartments or deep waterfront estates.
  4. We are either personally or professionally acquainted with most, if not all, the real estate agents across the Shire and the St George area. In many cases, when a vendor would prefer discretion before publicity in their property sale, this means that other agents may well bring quality opportunities to us, knowing we represent genuine buyers, before they are advertised. There’s a saying in real estate – “the best ones are often sold before they go on the market”.
  5. When discretion/confidentiality is preferred or crucial for any reason, LOCATION can guarantee that confidence is respected throughout the entire research, inspection and negotiation process. In the case of a purchase at auction, the only need for identification would be a written authority for us to bid at the auction on your behalf.
  6. For overseas/interstate home hunters or investors, the advantage of comprehensive research, physical inspections, detailed feedback and skilled negotiation conducted by a knowledgeable, trusted professional throughout the entire buying process are obvious.
  7. Buying a property is possibly the biggest financial (and perhaps the most emotional) decision you will make in your life – having LOCATION represent you (and keep you totally informed throughout) will ensure it’s also the very best decision you will make.

Okay I'm interested... what are my options?

OPTION 1 Full ‘Premium’ Service.

After establishing the brief for your desired property in detail, we will conduct a proactive search by viewing all available properties both on and off (silent sales) the market and will continue inspecting and short listing suitable properties on your behalf until the right one is found. We will arrange accompanied viewings at your earliest convenience and advise you on the pros and cons of each property, in addition to providing you with detailed written reports and analysis. We understand personal/work commitments, as well as preference for discretion, and we’re more than happy to arrange private viewings outside of the ‘Open for Inspection’ times or days. When we have found ‘the’ property, we use all our experienced negotiating skills, understanding of the property market and knowledge of the ‘tricks of the trade’ to secure the property on the best possible terms and at the lowest possible price for you. After exchange of contracts we will make sure everything is attended to in a professional and efficient manner through to the day of settlement. We will liaise with all parties on your behalf if needed and assist in the co-ordination of solicitors/conveyancers; building/pest/strata reports; valuations, finance and related matters when required*. Our ‘Success Fee’ (the balance full service fee – see our fee schedule for details) is paid only after unconditional exchange of contracts / within a standard 42 day settlement period. (*All external consultancy fees are at the client’s expense).

OPTION 2 ‘You Locate – We Negotiate’ on as many properties as you like.

Using detailed property sales data research and analysis, along with our keen knowledge and experience, we negotiate the best deal for you. There is a small retainer and usually an agency agreement of 8 months, with no limit on the number of properties we would negotiate for you during that period if needed. A success fee (50% of our full service fee) is paid only after unconditional exchange of contracts / within a standard 42 day settlement period.

OPTION 3 ‘You Locate – We Negotiate’ on one particular property.

Using detailed property sales data research and analysis, along with our keen knowledge and experience, we negotiate the best deal for you on the specific property you want to buy. There is a small retainer and a success fee which is only paid after unconditional exchange of contracts / within a standard 42 day settlement period.

OPTION 4 ‘Auction Bidding’.

You will be represented at the auction by one the most experienced and respected auction agents (at all levels of the property market) in Southern Sydney, giving you a clear professional advantage over your competition. An attendance fee is paid prior to the auction, and assuming we secure the property, a success fee is payable following the auction.

Hands down the best buyers agents in the Shire market

Michael and Rhiff found our family’s first home and it was an absolute pleasure to have gotten to know and work with them both from start to finish. They were equally professional as they were personable, making us feel as if they were buying a property for themselves. They always listened to our needs and continually ensured us that they would find the absolute best property available and not settle for anything less. Definitely glad we had them both on our side! If you’re looking to buy a home, don’t do it without LOCATION.

Discretion and confidentiality

We recently engaged LOCATION as a buyer’s agent and we’re very happy we did. Michael’s strategy for discretion and confidentiality (which was very important to us), as well as his experience, up to date understanding of the market and his professional rapport with the selling agents were invaluable in securing the property we wanted at a fair price.

— Darrell Wilkes

Enthusiasm and professionalism

Thank you both very much, particularly Rhiff for investing the time and effort in helping us find our new home. Your enthusiasm and professionalism throughout the process was very much appreciated. Antoine and I both agreed when the sale came through that we wouldn't have been able to do it without your help. Thanks again.

— Shveta & Antoine

Area knowledge and extensive contact list

Choosing a home is a big decision and being a single woman buying in a new area in today’s market had me nervous. After my first phone call with Michael I felt sure that he was the man I needed on my side. His combination of area knowledge and real estate experience had me assured that his considered approach to securing the property was the right one. Michael’s extensive list of close contacts was also a huge asset to have on my side; not only with securing an accepted offer but even down to the boring legal stuff. From the outset, I trusted that Michael and Rhiff only had my best interests at heart. Thank you so much!

Secured our property quickly and under the asking price

We recently used Michael to purchase our lovely home in Cronulla. With our busy lifestyles, we simply didn’t have enough time to locate a property and negotiate a deal. Leveraging off Michael’s experience and industry knowledge, we were able to secure the property we wanted, quickly and 10% under asking price. We would highly recommend Michael as a buying agent, not only for busy people but people who want the best purchase price of their next home or investment.
