It could be your very first home, your dream family home or perhaps you are relocating to a new location. Buying a home should be a very exciting and rewarding time and at Prosper Group, that’s the exact experience we want you to enjoy. Let Prosper Group remove the stress and provide confidence with your home purchase.

When we first meet, we will take the time to understand your exact preferences, from price, to location, features and aspirations. We then review the market, reach out to our networks for off-market opportunities and inspect homes to create a shortlist of suitable properties. We want to get our clients through properties before the general public become aware this property is for sale.

Our guarantee is to buy you the right property at the right price.

A thorough due diligence process will make sure you are fully aware of any potential risks or pitfalls to the property.

Prosper Group is not influenced by the sales method or price guide being applied by an agent. Instead we conduct our own comparative analysis of recently sold properties in the area to satisfy ourselves of what the purchase price should be for each property we assess.

As your buyer’s agent, we take a strategic approach to every stage of the process to give you the best results possible. All discussions, negotiations and bidding is undertaken by our team to ensure we secure your home of choice for the lowest possible price.

All this is done well-ahead of the time it takes most people to buy a home, enabling you to move in quickly and enjoy your new home.

Residential Buyers Agent FAQ’s

What’s the difference between a Buyer’s Agent and a real estate agent?

A Buyer’s Agent represents the buyer and is retained and paid exclusively by the buyer. A Buyer’s Agent does not sell property. A Buyer’s Agent acts in the best interest of a buyer.

A real estate agent represents the vendor (seller) and is retained and paid exclusively by the vendor. A real estate agent acts in the best interest of the vendor.

What’s involved with the full Buyer’s Agent service?

Prosper Group’s full Buyers Agent service covers the following aspects of a client’s property purchase:

  • Establishing the clients criteria – Our knowledge of the market allows us to evolve your requirements into a criteria which is in line with the current market
  • Sourcing of properties – We cover the market with both on market and off market opportunities
  • Presentation of short listed properties – With each property we provide a summary of our thoughts on the property and how this matches the purchasing criteria
  • Comparative market analysis – We provide an analysis of the price expectation and potential rent (if an investment property) based on recent comparative sales/rentals (note: Prosper Group are not valuers and can not provide a formal valuation)
  • Negotiations – A negotiation strategy is developed taking into account both price and terms. Regularly we are able to save more off the price than our fee.
  • Due diligence – We complete and provide our detailed due diligence report prior to the purchase becoming unconditional. In addition, we arrange and coordinate any third party contractors required for this purchase, i.e. valuers, building inspectors, fit out contractors, surveyors etc.
  • Transaction management through to settlement – We manage the purchase through to settlement, including liaising with your solicitor, financier etc.

How can I benefit from using a Buyer’s Agent?

Buyers use a Buyer’s Agent for the following reason:

  • Lack of time – Buying a property is time intensive if done correctly. A buyer’s agent removes this time restraint and allows time poor buyers to purchase their property.
  • Lack of confidence – A lack of experience or confidence should not stop a buyer from purchasing their home or investment property. By employing a Buyer’s Agent it allows buyers to get professional assistance with the purchase of their property.
  • Facts and figures over emotion – a Buyer’s Agent provides their clients with the fundamental facts and figures of each property being considered. This allows their clients to make an educated decision in regard to the property they purchase, rather than an emotional decision.
  • Negotiation – A Buyer’s Agent is an experienced and professional negotiator and auction bidder, working on behalf of the buyer to purchase the property at the lowest achievable price.
  • Greater exposure to properties for sale – A Buyer’s Agent is well connected with the real estate agents. Further, real estate agents see Buyer’s Agents as repeat buyers, rather than the average mum and dad buyer who may buy every 5 – 10 years. For this reason Buyer’s Agents are constantly being presented with off market properties, meaning their clients have a broader horizon of properties to consider.
  • Geographically restricted – a buyer being geographically located either overseas or interstate can often be a barrier to prevent a property purchase. A buyer’s agent provides these buyers with a solution to allow them to confidently purchase their property.
  • A professional VERSUS a professional – buying your home is nearly always the most expensive asset you will ever buy, therefore is it smart to do this without any professional assistance? By employing a Buyer’s Agent you are employing a professional to assist you to deal with the real estate agent, who is the professional representing the vendor.

Will they find off-market properties?

Yes, a good Buyer’s Agent is well connected and respected with real estate agents and therefore are regularly provided with off market or pre-market opportunities. Further, Buyer’s Agents have connections with developers and property owners, providing an additional source of off market properties.

Should I use a Buyer’s Agent?

Unless you have unlimited time and are an experienced property buyer with strong knowledge of the suburbs or the suburb you are planning to purchase within, then yes you should strongly consider engaging a Buyer’s Agent to purchase you the right property at the right price.

How much do Buyer’s Agents cost?

Buyer’s aAgents charge either a fixed fee or percentage of the purchase price. Generally, the fee is between 1 – 3% including GST.

Residential Buyers Agent TESTIMONIALS

Success after feeling like I was never going to find my “perfect” new home

“Earlier this year I had spent a disappointing 6 months searching for a new home – dealing with scores of agents, hundreds of open house visits, unsuccessful Auctions and rejected offers. I was starting to feel that I would never find a new home, let alone my “perfect” new home.

I decided to take a new tack and approached Prosper Group who had been recommended to me. After my first meeting I felt reassured that they would be able to find me my elusive new home.

Following an in-depth and warm conversation discussing my property requirements, not just my preferred locations, budget and style, but also all importantly, my lifestyle choices going forward, Prosper Group set forth with a plan to find me that perfect property.

I was guided with care and warmth through the currently wild and rocky real estate Sydney world. At no time during this buying experience did I feel that I was being too picky, indecisive or taking up too much time. On the contrary, I was encouraged that we were moving in the right direction to find the perfect property solution. I was thrilled to have purchased my fabulous new home within 2 months.

I cannot recommend Prosper Group highly enough.”

Downsizing Client Secures Dream Apartment in Sought After Suburb

I utilised the services of John Molloy in securing my gorgeous apartment overlooking Manly. John’s experience, personal style and savvy anticipation of potential stumbling blocks sealed the deal for this purchase.

Had John not been steering the ship, negotiating with tenacious and polite persistence on both sides, while ensuring a keen eye to detail, this gem of a place would’ve slipped through my grasp.

Thank you John – you really are the master!!

Helping Australian expat clients find their forever home

“Prosper Group, in particular Jill Cook, were great to work with as we searched and bought our home in Sydney from overseas. They made all aspects of the purchase as easy as it could be from the first contact with them through to the close of the sale. Even since purchasing the property, they have helped take care of the home as we organise our return to Australia. The team was tireless in their efforts to secure the right home for our family and highly knowledgeable about the state of the market and the particulars of each home we looked at over the weeks of our search. Thank you, we can’t wait to move in!”

We Could Have Gone All Year Looking and Searching

“We are thrilled with the outcome and securing in our preferred suburb is even better. We have to give praise to John Malloy, he is such a delightful man and I loved our working relationship.

Family home found!

“John Molloy from Prosper Group made what could have been a taxing and draining process of selling and buying houses a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Providing sage, good humoured and thoughtful advice at every turn, John had every angle covered. His patient and professional approach helped us feel part of the process. His calm and strategic thinking helped us navigate the anxiety of a volatile property market and nothing was too much to ask.

In helping us choose the right property and securing it at a good price, the final result was worth every penny. What John and his colleagues at Prosper ultimately save you is time and frustration by gently guiding you where you need to go.“

Bought for $61,000 below the initial price guide

“Prosper Group helped me purchase my new home which I am absolutely thrilled about. The property was supposed to go to auction, but ended up in a best-on-offer contract show-down. This would have been a pretty daunting situation if it hadn’t have been for John’s experience, charm and professionalism. I ended up spending $61,000 below the initial price guide.”
