IT’S MY HOME - Summer 2015 | 41 WHAT IS A BUYER’S AGENT AND DO YOU NEED ONE? Property investment expert, Chris Gray, explains the importance of a buyer’s agent Many people have bought property themselves or have seen close friends and family do the same. As such, it’s a very common question to ask: “Why do I need a buyer’s agent, when I can do it myself?” It’s a good question to ask and there are many reasons why you should consider one. A buyer’s agent is a professional buyer of real estate. He or she searches the market to find the ideal property that best suits your needs, and then negotiates to buy it at the lowest possible price. A buyer’s agent is almost the complete opposite to a real estate sales agent who works for the seller and tries to find them the ideal buyer at the highest possible price.
