Who uses the services of a buyer’s agent?2020-12-08T06:17:24+00:00

Anyone who is looking to take the stress out of finding and buying a new family home, an investor who is looking to build their portfolio or anyone from interstate or overseas who needs professional advice on the Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast property markets.

Are buyer’s agent fees tax-deductible?2020-12-08T06:24:30+00:00

If you are purchasing a property to live in, then our buyer’s agent fees are not tax-deductible.

However, if you are purchasing the property as an investment, then the fees may be tax-deductible. Typically our agent’s fees are added to the ‘cost base’ for the calculation of capital gains tax, rather than being deductible in any single year.

For more specific advice, you should always speak to your accountant.

Why should I use the services of a buyer’s agent when I can find a property on my own?2020-12-08T06:23:47+00:00

What happens when I find a suitable property? How long do I have before I need to make a decision?2020-12-08T06:25:02+00:00

Currently, the most significant problem you might find right now when it comes to buying a property in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast or the Gold Coast, is low stock levels and high demand.

Therefore we would recommend if you find a property that meets your demands you make a decision as soon as possible. However, it would be best if you did not decide until you have visited the property and made sure you’re 100% happy with it.

However, suppose you can’t view the property. In that case, our Invision Property buyers agents will provide you with a selection of photos or videos of the property along with the surrounding areas so that you can feel comfortable about making the right decision.

I have difficulty trusting real estate agents. Will I feel pressured to buy?2020-12-08T06:25:40+00:00

Unfortunately, some buyers’ agents rely on aggressive and deceptive sales strategies to close a deal at any cost. But, at Invision Property, nothing could be further from the truth. All of our buyers agents fully understand the concerns that people have in the purchasing process, and that’s why we undertake diligent research and complete disclosure so that you can make a fully informed decision and feel totally confident in your property purchase.

As a business, we’re in the repeat customer and referral business, so we would never recommend a property that we would not invest in ourselves.

How is a buyer’s agent different to a regular ‘real estate agent’?2020-12-08T06:26:24+00:00

The difference between a buyer’s agents and a real estate agent is pretty simple. Typically real estate agents are retained by the vendors (sellers) to market and sell their property, to achieve a maximum sales price for their client and to get the best outcome for the vendor.

Whereas a buyer’s agent is there to add all-round value and peace of mind to the buyer by ensuring not only does the property fully meet their needs and objectives but is also available at the best possible price.

What is a buyer’s agent?2020-12-08T06:28:50+00:00

A buyer’s agent also known as a buyer’s advocate is a licensed real estate agent who works exclusively for the property buyer. Depending on your requirements, we can provide you with a comprehensive range of services, including

  • Searching for properties using listed and unlisted off-market and silent listings
  • Evaluating and comparing properties based on their potential as a home or as a long term investment opportunity
  • Negotiating the purchase price and conditions in favour of the buyer, including bidding at auction if required.
  • Preparing/reviewing all contract and all necessary documentation
  • Managing your settlement process to its final completion
What are off-market/silent properties?2020-12-08T06:28:40+00:00

Off-market and silent listing are exclusive properties that are for sale but are not listed on sites such as Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au. Typically these are sourced through letterbox drops, door knocking and business relationships. At Invision Property, we have built extensive relationships across QLD to make sure you get access to the very best off-market and silent property deals.
