Commercial Property Buyer Agents

Real Estate Agents are often struggling with lack of supply, demand is usually high and competition is always tough. Buyers are regularly being priced out of the market, particularly first home buyers, young families looking to upgrade and the Mum and Dad investors as well. Commercial property buyers also suffer from this due to high demand suburbs with little commercial property stock.

Commercial Property Buyer Agents in Victoria are seeing commercial purchasers being out bid and out played and either losing or overpaying… not only at auction in other situations such as a sale by set date or an expression of interest campaign. This is a game best played by those who are experienced and who know the pitfalls of the industry, not to mention the rights of the purchaser and the obligations of the selling agent.

Increasingly Commercial Property Buyer’s Agents or “Commercial Property Buyers Advocates” are being engaged by educated commercial buyers to navigate the minefields of the real estate industry on their behalf and to show them the real value of commercial property, this of course in turn will save them money, time and stress. The difference between buying an average commercial property and a good commercial property can be a difference of tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

With over 220,000 new dwellings constructed in 2015 throughout Australia (70,000 of those within Victoria) one would think that there would be plenty of choice for purchase and that supply is stable.  That certainly is the case if you are willing to live, invest or migrate to a rural town touted as Melbourne’s new suburban city. For the rest of us, residing in an established urban and thriving metropolis is still the dream.

Back to the minefield.  Where to buy? How much to spend? What is it worth? These are all fair questions and require educated responses.  A Commercial Property Buyer Agents is trained in locating, evaluating, assessing and negotiating, and it is the negotiating where they will save you far more than the fees that they charge.  A Commercial Property Buyer Agents must be licenced to work in the industry (with the Business Licence Authority).  The industry is heavily regulated and bound by a code of ethics.  Your Commercial Property Buyer Agents should know the processes of purchasing and the legalities associated with any purchase.  If unsure check to see if your Commercial Property Buyer Agents is a member of REBAA (Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia) and/or a member of the REIV (Real Estate Institute of Victoria).

Having found that special commercial property, a Commercial Property Buyer Agents ensure clients benefit from full due diligence, uncovering anything that may adversely affect the property’s value and its enjoyment post-purchase. They also analyse the price in detail, before negotiating the best possible terms on your behalf. Although it is normal to engage a commercial buying agent early on in your property search, Elite Buyer Agents can come in at lots of different stages in the process. Some clients may have already found a property and need assistance with negotiations, analysing price or some comfort that the property is as it is described.

With regular reports and constant communication, a Commercial Property Buyer Agent client knows they are receiving unparalleled advice and access to the entire property market, including local experts providing unrivalled access to properties – both those marketed publicly, privately, and many that are not even on the market (so off-market), via a single point of contact, irrespective of the selling agent or vendor.

So when looking to make that next big purchase a Commercial Property Buyer Agents can be your best friend. Choose the right Commercial Property Buyer Agentsand you could find yourself with your Saturdays back, sitting in your new home in one of Melbourne’s healthiest growth corridors (with change in your pocket) or with an investment portfolio that will make your friends green with envy.
