These local Brisbane selling agents can talk the talk, and convince buyers the home they are looking at purchasing is the right one for them, even if, in reality, it’s not.
It’s just the sales agent is damn good at their job and can close a deal.
This one’s a little left field but it screams the truth.
Plain and simple – as a buyer looking to buy the RIGHT home, clever sales agents might stand in your way of you making the best decision for You.
Now for the record, I’m not about to go on a rant about how evil real estate agents are, because truth be told, many of the Brisbane selling agents I know and work with on a constant basis are great people – hardworking, honest, and in general, just good down to earth people trying to make a living and help people buy and sell property.
But here’s the rub… many of them are VERY GOOD at their job, which means they probably know more about local property, negotiation and how to sell ice to eskimos and close a sale than you do.
They’re likely just better than you at all of this and if you don’t do your research, stand your ground or ask the right questions, the sales agent isn’t going to offer you all of the negative aspects of the home on a silver platter.
Of course they wouldn’t! They’d be stupid to.
It’s their job to sell the damn property, not point out all of the bad things about it.
A good agent will downplay the negatives and even turn them into positives. He or she won’t want to talk you out of buying the place. In fact, they will do everything in their power to shine the best light on the property so that you not only want to buy it, but you’ll be prepared to pay the best price to secure it too!
This is their job.
YOUR job as a buyer is to research the areas and suburbs thoroughly and find out all the dirt on that property BEFORE you buy. You need to ask the right questions and not be swayed by any of the sales and negotiation tactics the sales agent throws at you in an attempt to close a sale.
The reality is, you can’t pick and choose the sales agent you deal with, but you CAN educate yourself so you can play the game just as strategically as they can. And when I refer to games, I’m talking about the game of buying the right home for you, for the best price (a fair but hopefully low-“ish” price).
