Melbourne's Award Winning Buyers Agent's

What does a buyer’s agent do?

A Buyer’s Agent acts exclusively on behalf of someone wanting to buy property. Just as someone selling property would utilise an agent to secure the best price, a Buyer’s Agent represents the interests of the buyer and works to secure the best deal for the buyer. Buyer’s Agents typically operate in a particular region and develop in-depth knowledge of specific locations and property markets. If you want to buy property in Melbourne, you should utilise a Buyer’s Agent based in Melbourne who has proven knowledge of the local property market.

Why use Advantage Property as your Melbourne Buyer’s Agent?

There is no substitute for experience. Operating since 2000, our Buyer’s Agents have established networks and contacts in Melbourne and access to ‘silent’ or ‘off-market’ listings. Our team will help you source properties, give you expert advice and market assessments, and negotiate and oversee the purchase and settlement of your property.

Our team is led by Frank Valentic, who has over 20 years of experience in the real estate industry and has been awarded REIA Australian Buyer's Agent of the Year on multiple occasions.

  • Why should I pay a buyer’s agent?

    Paying a Buyer’s Agent makes perfect financial sense. With superior negotiation skills and in-depth knowledge of the Melbourne market, our Buyer’s Agents maximise your purchasing power and protect you from overpaying. Buying a house may be one of the biggest financial decisions you ever make. Only by working with our expert Buyer’s Agents can you give yourself peace of mind that you have secured the right property at the right price and avoided overpaying or making a costly mistake.

  • Why can’t the selling agent help me?

    The selling agent is paid to represent the person selling the property, not you the buyer. The selling agent is trying to secure the highest possible price and can’t give you unbiased advice – ultimately they want you to buy the property they’re selling and pay as much as possible!

  • Is there any cost for my first meeting with you?

    No, your first meeting with an Advantage Property is completely free of charge. The best way for us to really understand how to help you is for us all to get together and talk it through. No gimmicks, no hard sell, just a face-to-face conversation where we find out more about your property goals and you get to know us a little better. There’s no obligation to go ahead with any of our services. Our Buyer's Agents are excellent at what they do and we think that after you meet them, you’ll think so too.

  • Do you help investors?

    Absolutely! With in-depth knowledge of the Melbourne property market, our Buyer’s Agents can help you create a property portfolio that truly suits your needs. Whether you are an experienced investor or investing for the first time, our Buyer’s Agents simplify the purchase of property by handling all aspects of the property search and purchase. We also take care of ongoing management through our Property Management department. Leaving you free to take care of other business while we handle all of your property needs.

  • How long will it take to buy a property?

    That really depends on you! If time is short let our Buyer’s Agents know at your first meeting and we will act quickly to bring you a shortlist of suitable properties. In our experience, most buyers find and purchase a suitable property in between 3 to 6 weeks.

  • Will you help with the paperwork?

    As experienced industry professionals, our Buyer’s Agents are knowledgeable about section 32 notices and property contracts and will assist with coordinating the settlement process along with your conveyancer / solicitor. We can also recommend a lawyer if you wish to seek legal advice prior to purchase.

  • Do you conduct building inspections?

    We coordinate the services you need for purchase and settlement and will arrange a building inspection and report on your behalf. We can work with a building inspector of your choice or arrange the inspection to be completed by one of our recommended building inspectors.

  • How do I know I’m not paying too much for a property?

    There are many factors that affect the price of a property such as location, land value, aspect, lighting, period features, security, interest rates, rental vacancy rates, forecast population growth and expected capital gains to name a few. The only way to be sure that you don’t overpay is to get expert advice. Our Buyer’s Agents do thorough due diligence drawing on their years of experience in the Melbourne property market and will provide you with the information you need to purchase with confidence.

  • What makes you different from other Buyers Agents/Advocates?

    Quite simply, our Buyer’s Agents know the Melbourne property market inside out and pride themselves on delivering a highly personal and responsive service. But don’t take our word for it – pop over to our ‘Client Stories’ and check out what other property buyers have to say about us.
