So in the middle of a Pandemic my crazy husband and I decided we would pack up and start looking at moving to Brisbane!!
(I can hear you giggling from here!)
Luckily, I have an amazing friend who works in finance and she had a client who was a Buyer's Agent and in Brisbane! Needless to say I was more than happy to look into it all and use the services if needed.
When we really thought about it and broke it down we were about to invest on our Primary Place of Residence - the most we would potentially ever invest in ourselves!! Getting a professional on board and on our team made sense!
After a chat and bit of introduction to our Buyer's Agent over the phone and - NO further research into who they even were..... we engaged them! Middle of a pandemic - in lockdown, in another state we were going to buy a house!
We opted to go with Full Service so our agent would be looking and searching for houses for us - meeting the criteria we had agreed together. We were very open to suburbs and also (probably drove him mad) we sent our own houses we liked the look of for further investigation! There was a cost involved for sure and it was a huge consideration - but how much would we potentially save that was the main question! Buying a home is a big event and we both felt better knowing we had a professional on our team!
