The Typical Client Experience
Daniel agreed on a clear brief (budget, property type, etc), and signed a Purchase Authority appointing Property Analytics to find him a suitable property within 90 days…
We identified the best suburbs for Daniel to buy into at that time, and we shared our analysis with him. We considered 40 properties, inspected 12, ruled out 9, and shortlisted 3 for serious consideration…
Daniel asked us to complete full project feasibility studies on two. Within 48 hours, we agreed that one stacked up really well. Daniel authorised us to negotiate the purchase, we did, and that’s when we issued our invoice.

We strive to be as transparent as possible in all that we do.
A buyers advocate is a licensed professional who represents property buyers, much in the same way that a licensed agent represents property sellers. Buyers advocates (or buyers agents) are very common in North America and Europe, and are increasingly common in Australia.
In most cases, a buyers advocate charges about 2.0% of the purchase price. This fee is negotiated at the time that a property buyer appoints a buyers agent to find them a suitable property, and is included in what is called a Purchase Authority. This is very similar to how a vendor would negotiate an agent’s fee with a selling agent.
A buyer’s advocate helps property buyers determine appropriate purchase strategies (budget, property type, suburb, etc). He/she then searches for suitable properties on- and off-market, shortlists and inspects the better ones, analyses current market conditions, recommends the best purchase opportunities to his/her client, and negotiates the purchase.
Typically, a buyers advocate charges a modest search commencement fee at the time a purchase authority is agreed, with the remainder of the commission fee charged only once a property is successfully purchased. For example, if a property buyer appoints a buyers advocate to purchase an investment property for +/- $1m at a fee of 2.0% the purchase price, the buyers agent will charge a $2500 commencement fee; then, when a property is purchased for $950,000, the buyers agent will charge the agreed % commission (2.0% x $950,000 = $19,000) less the previously paid commencement fee.
The most common reasons that clients appoint us… We help property buyers determine a suitable budget based on their savings and borrowing capacity. We know the best suburbs to purchase in (most buyers just buy nearby where they already live/know, and potentially miss out on big capital growth and profits). We save property buyers countless hours by searching for, shortlisting and inspecting properties, and dealing with selling agents. We know how to properly inspect properties and how to conduct comprehensive project feasibilities. We understand market values, and what property characteristics lead to price rises. We regularly save property buyers tens of thousands of dollars through smart auction bidding and negotiating.
No. Absolutely not. We believe it is very important to avoid conflicts of interests, and to be seen to do the right thing at all times. We only work for buyers, and we only get paid by buyers. We don’t sell property, and we receive no benefits whatsoever from property sellers. When you appoint us to find you a suitable property investment or development site to purchase, you can rely on the fact that we are acting in your interests – totally and exclusively.
