Dealing with an Agent

If you are looking to sell a property, chances are you will deal with a real estate agent or an agent’s representative. Be represented by the best!

Agents, auctioneers and sales representatives are required to be registered and carry a photographic registration card.

During the buying process you can generally expect an agent to:

  • Take your details and advise you about relevant properties for sale
  • Answer any questions about listed properties
  • Arrange inspections
  • Provide a copy of a Form 1 (vendor’s statement) upon request
  • Communicate your offers to the seller, and
  • Oganise for the signing of the contract.

Remember that an agent is usually hired by the vendor and therefore will be working for the vendor.
