1. Get to know you
We schedule a consultation and start building your buyers brief. We cover the location, style, character, type, purpose, project objectives, market conditions and much more. We can do this during or after business hours in person or via most video conference applications.
2. Buying proposal and Agency agreement
All buyers briefs are different; therefore, we ensure you receive the best proposal for your circumstances. Enclosed in the proposal is the agency agreement and an invoice for the engagement fee.
We have a unique fee for service model. It is simple, you engage we deliver.
As your agent delivers a milestone, the associated fee is accrued toward the final invoice. Some milestones maybe repeated numerous times such as shortlisting, appraisal, offer strategy and negotiation. There could be multiple milestone cycles, however you only pay to the cap. There is a capped fee applied to the service so you can budget accordingly. When the property transaction occurs you will be invoiced the capped fee less what you have already paid. If there is no property transaction or you terminate you only pay for the milestones that you accrued.
4. Buyers brief
We spend as much time as needed to help you write the buyers brief. This could be buying a family home, investment, development site, commercial site or a renovation project. We bring our experience and resources to fine tune the buyers brief that is just right for you. Once the parameters are agreed upon we commence the research and shortlisting.
5. Finance the purchase is confirmed
Your financier will take the lead on this, however your agent will need to know some of the detail. This includes how the deposit is being paid and a copy of the finance preapproval. Specific items such as a re-finance plan or you are borrowing equity from another property is important for us to know.
