I used a buyers agent once.It is illegal for a buyers agent to get commissions from both parties.
Dual agency is usually illegal I believe, but the buyers agents would be able to correct me on thatI used a buyers agent once.
I paid $9k for the priveledge, realised I paid too much (was getting pressured), then recieved an email stating they had also recieved $2k commission from the real estate agent they bought it from.
Large well known agency, very well advertised. How come they are still around if it is illegal?
Haha, yeah I see that. I'm actually pro-BA, they are just another means of finding property. I just emphasise the importance of doing your own DD.Dual agency is usually illegal I believe, but the buyers agents would be able to correct me on that
please don't paint or BA's with the same brush, I get this view quite a lot with brokers versus banks................
I do understand that is difficult to draw anything but a poor conclusion if you have only used to be a once and had a bad outcome.
I haven't myself personally but with a first time poster posting this it makes you worry!They charge $9,990 per property.
I met with their portfolio planner and signed up. The portfolio planner at the start was quick to answer my emails before payment.
I paid them 9 days ago and have not heard from them since then so I sent emails and when I did not get a reply I rang them and the planner advised that someone would call me. That was last week. Since I did not get a call yet, I emailed again and they said someone would call me but to date no has called me yet.
Has anyone bought properties from this group? Any feedback on how long they take to get in touch with you?
Assuming that you're genuine poster.Has anyone bought properties from this group? Any feedback on how long they take to get in touch with you?
I'll happily tell you I'm flat out for only $250 if you like?My wife and I had a map session with Daniel from binvested yesterday. He said if we wanted to use their buyers agent service we would be on a waiting list because they are flat out.
The info Daniel gave us could have potentially saved us thousands due to poor decisions from us as we are just beginners so I found the $299 fee to be worth it. I know others would say its a waste of money and I could have learnt the same stuff here for free but if you don't know about something then how do you know to ask about it.
