The price that you pay for a property really comes down to your ability to negotiate with the agent.

You can be confident that the best price and terms will be negotiated on your behalf, when you have a Plan Assist Buyer’s Agent representing you in your Property Acquisition. They understand the creative techniques that can be used to your advantage such as extended settlements, contract changes and option fee arrangements. They’re experienced with the tactics used by agents in this current market and counter the ‘sales talk’ with professional negotiation strategies.


Auction Bidding

Most people find the concept of bidding at auction, incredibly intimidating and rely on Google to learn all the tips, that then fly out the window ‘in the heat of the moment’.

As well as taking the stress out of purchasing your property at auction, your Plan Assist Buyer’s Agent can save you money as they understand the tactics employed by an auctioneer on auction day and know the strategies to overcome them with confident, professional bidding. By appointing an Agent as your representative at auction, you also eliminate the temptation to overbid based on emotion, the desire to ‘win’ or the frenzy of the experience.

You will benefit from having a representative bid on their behalf, if:

  • You are not confident with the auction process or setting.
  • You wish to remain anonymous.
  • You are a high profile member of the community or public figure.
  • You are concerned with selling agents having access to the register.

 “I am a Property Advisor myself but have a focus on residential purchases, so I enlisted the Plan Assist team to help me with sourcing and purchasing my first commercial investment property. Harry found me a property that met all my strict criteria within a few weeks and within the next two weeks had it negotiated on and secured.

I consider myself fairly knowledgeable and adept at negotiating, but when I did my homework the selling agent was adamant that I’d be lucky to get $1000 off the asking price. Harry came back to me in a few days and had negotiated almost $30 000 of the asking price; securing the property with an 8% net yield! The whole process has been a great one thanks to Harry’s experience, and Anton’s cool, calm and professional nature in organising my finance. I’d go back to these guys every time!”

“We have great pleasure in recommending Harry and his team of experts at Plan Assist to anyone who wants a Buyer’s Agent to assist them with their property purchase. From day one Harry sat down with us and went through the various options on the purchase of property and provided us with valuable knowledge on the Sydney market. After reviewing quite a few property options over the past 3 months and changing our parameters, we have now acquired our investment property and it is everything we were hoping for. In the next 12 months we hope to add a Garden Apartment to be constructed by the Plan Assist Constructions team, which will give us a positively geared property. Thanks Harry and the team at Plan Assist!”
