Not only were the ball park fees around $25,000 per search, but they're charging on a percent of the purchase price. This should be absolutely outlawed because it means a buyers agent who operates this way is actually incentivised to buy your property at the highest possible price – because they can then charge you more.
We, of course, don't operate that way. Our services are based on a flat fee so you have price certainty of costs no matter what price you pay to purchase your property. This means you're guaranteed to pay the lowest possible price for your next purchase.
You'll also save plenty on your acquisition costs because our flat fee is a LOT less than $25,000. Book in for a chat here if you want me to run through our current services and fees – though after that AFR story maybe it is time to put our prices up . . . 🤣😎.
