5 Ways Buyer's Agents Can Help Sales Agents
Buyer’s Agents are an integral part of Queensland’s real estate industry, becoming more widely recognised and utilised in Queensland every year.
Savvy buyers recognise the benefits of using a buyer’s agent and astute sales agents have also caught on to the benefits of working closely with buyer’s agents. Buyer’s agents can help sales agents do their job more easily and can provide valuable assistance in many ways.
Here are some of the ways that forming and cultivating relationships with buyer’s agents can benefit your business:
- A valuable sounding board
Buyer’s agents can provide honest feedback on property that can be beneficial in the pre-market phase. I have strong relationships with a number of sales agents and I believe buyer’s agents and sales agents should work productively together to connect buyers and sellers.
Buyer’s agents can be good sounding boards for all things property including price.
Recently, at a pre-launch, a sales agent asked my opinion on a property’s price as he was uncertain in this transitioning market if the price he had set was achievable. I was able to give him feedback and reassurance on that matter.
Having an open line of communication with buyer’s agents can provide your vendors with early feedback helping with price expectations.
- Access to qualified buyers
- Kick-start your sales campaign
- Free promotion
- Easier transactions
These are some ways in which sales agents and sellers can benefit from engaging with buyer’s agents. Forging relationships with buyer’s agents can make the transaction a better experience for all involved and working with them can ultimately add value to your business.
