How to buy property without paying a Buyers Agent

If you’re trying to buy property at the moment, you’ll know that the market is tight . . and getting tighter.

The key issue is we don’t have enough properties to meet buyer demand, so as a buyer you have to look further afield than your desired suburb or you just have to be willing to pay more than anyone else for the property you want – and often a combination of both options.

Well . . at least that’s what the real estate agents want you to think.

Is it really all about cash?

The reality is that no matter how much money you have, or how much you can access – these days you need more than just money to buy successfully.

The market is fast and much more complex than most buyers realise.  And just as you think you have a handle on it, you can be knocked out by some slight change that takes the property out of your reach.
