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.

Negotiation strategy helps this couple secure their new home.

My wife and I had an enjoyable experience with Prosper Group. In a hot market, Alex helped us identify properties early (ahead of them being publically available), answer questions quickly and talk through the bid strategy / approach which ultimately allowed us to secure our current home quicker than we would have otherwise and ahead of others in a competitive situation. I would recommend Prosper Group to friends and colleagues.

Strategy to not bid at auction pays off

“After doing incredibly well financially from our first property purchase through Prosper Group, there was no doubt that we would use their buyers agent services again.

Once again, we are over the moon with Prosper Group’s professional service, knowledge and their ability to make the purchase process easy.”

Outback resident secures investment property in City region

We found Prosper Group were professional, knowledgeable, and stayed in close contact during all points of the search, purchase and settlement. Living at outback Australia was going to make it difficult to purchase an investment property in the city region. Instead, we found it to be an easy process that saved us both time and money!

Sydney client diversifies their portfolio by purchasing in Brisbane

“Thank you Prosper Group for all your hard work; you have found us an investment property that ticked all the boxes!

Not only did you find this property off market but below what we would have paid if it had been marketed, saving us thousands of dollars. We would gladly recommend Prosper Group to any prospective investors.

We look forward to using your service again!”

Experienced hands on investor acquires investment property which exceeds expectations

As an experienced and usually hands on investor, I was initially ambivalent about the need for a buyer’s agent. However, once I started working with Prosper Group, I realised how important it was to me to have a couple of professionals to bounce ideas off, run the ruler over variety of properties, provide prompt access to surveyors and tradespeople for reports, and to be on the spot to conduct the all-important negotiations in a market (inner suburbs of Sydney) which was heating up. The end result is that I and my wife now own the exact sort of property we were looking for, and our investment is exceeding expectations.  Thanks guys.

Doctor buys the perfect off-market property with no selling agent involved.

“I was keen to purchase a suitable investment property through my self managed superannuation fund. As I’m a busy doctor, I simply don’t have the time to do all the running around inspecting and researching properties. That’s why I engaged Prosper Group.

Not only are they extremely knowledgeable about property but the property that they found for me wasn’t even on the market. It had been extensively renovated so was perfect for my needs. As there was no selling agent involved, Prosper Group was able to negotiate a reasonable price directly with the vendors. I am extremely satisfied with all the hard work that Prosper Group has done for me and I would thoroughly recommend their services to anyone considering purchasing a property.”
