Buying a home

It’s a great feeling having an experienced agent on your side leveling the playing field, rather than working for the seller.

Whether it is your first home or your next home, finding your dream home will be much easier with the efficient Metropole team on your side, working for you.

Normally buying an investment home is a major experience, filled with excitement, pleasure, stress, pride and fear and will consume much of your precious time, money and energy.

Choosing the right property for you comes down to knowing what you need, knowing what you can afford and knowing exactly what’s available at the time you are ready to buy.

When you choose Metropole to help you locate your next home, the following process occurs:

Step 1 - We establish your requirements
We offer a free initial consultation to establish your requirements. Your family’s short and long term needs will be critical in determining the type of property, the suburb and the strategy that we use. If necessary, we will refer you to our finance affiliates, accountants and solicitors to assist you.

Step 2 - Property search
Once you give us the go ahead, we'll undertake a comprehensive search of properties available for sale in your target market. We not only have access to the properties listed on the open market, but also to many "silent sales" before they come on the market. We will inspect many properties on your behalf, saving you time and money. We then prioritize them, identify good opportunities and present them to you (initially by email if required) for your selection. To assist you, we include digital photos of the property, location maps, floor plans and further details as required. If one of the properties is suitable, we will then arrange an inspection time for you.

Our customers usually fall into one of the following categories. If it doesn’t describe your requirements well, don’t hesitate to contact us anyway & see if we can help you.

Are you:

A Prestige home buyer?
An Established home buyer?
A First home buyer?
An Expat or overseas home buyer?

Prestige home buyers

We specialize in understanding your requirements then locating and negotiating a prestige property to suit your needs.

Amongst the reasons clients engage us to buy top end properties are access to premium real estate not listed with agents or the silent sales before they hit the open market, savings (because we understand property values) and privacy. For years Sydney has regarded as one of the world’s most liveable cities and offers homeowners a wide array of prestige areas in which to live. We can provide you with local knowledge about schools, entertainment, sporting facilities, demographics and the “culture” of an area. See our 5 step acquisition process here.

Buyers agents are licensed property professionals that represent investors, home buyers and developers in purchasing their properties. A buyers agent works exclusively for the buyer, whereas the selling agent works for and is obliged to get the best deal for the seller.

A professional buyers agent can:

  • Save you time, money and stress by helping to purchase property at the best possible price under the best terms.
  • Research, negotiate and acquire your property on your behalf.
  • Assess the market value of suitable properties to help you make an informed buying decision without all of the “hype” often generated by sales agents.
  • Ensure you don’t pay too much by not becoming emotionally involved in the auction or negotiation process.
  • Saving you money by locating suitable properties in a timely manner.
  • Source the right investment property in the right location, which will outperform the market averages.
  • Help investors build their property portfolio faster and safer by representing the investor, not the seller, developer or project marketer
  • Act in a confidential and professional capacity

But beware…not all buyers agents are the same. Choosing the wrong buyers agent for your investment property could cost you tens of thousands of dollars!

Here some questions you could ask your buyers agent before engaging them:

We’ve probably bought more properties for clients than any other buyers agent in Australia. Here’s what some of our clients are saying:
  • So far we have purchased three properties via Metropole. Diane Johnson helped us to buy our latest unit in Marrickville and I cannot overstate the value I have received working with Diane. It is fair to say that she went over and beyond her call of duty, not only negotiating the best deal for us but being proactive and smart in getting the contract to our lawyers before other potential buyers had a chance to move. Her persistence, professionalism and commitment allowed us to buy a wonderful property at the best possible price. She kept us well informed throughout the process with regular contacts to update us on the progress, giving us confidence and making the whole process stress free and easy. To tell that we appreciate her honest and hard work as our agent is to say nothing. Diane is awesome! We are so grateful to Diane for everything she has done, and to George for recommending Diane to be our agent. Great job Diane! I would not hesitate to recommend Metropole and Diane in particular to anyone. Thanks, Diane, you are amazing!

  • The service I have received from Metropole has been fantastic, in so many ways. Nicholas took the time to make sure he understood what I was after and worked very hard to source a property not only up to my standard but also fit within his/Metropole’s very distinct selection criteria. I was lucky enough to have input from Michael Yardney. I have also been very happy with other referrals Metropole have made, whether it’s an accountant or landlord’s insurance. I am very confident that the service provided by the team at Metropole was well worth the cost and I am already looking at how to speed up my next purchase utilising their services once more! I have recommended Metropole to my friends and am exploring the possibility of undertaking a small development project with Metropole’s input. It’s excellent to be invited to the continuing events/seminars where I can continue to become educated about property investing.
