When creating your listing on www.buyersregister.com.au you should consider that you are writing an advertisement to sell yourself to a Selling Agent or New Home Sales Consultant.

All sales people prefer to deal with Buyers who know what they want and how much they can afford. So, understand your budget and be clear with your requirements.

Once you have completed your Registration you should start receiving offers of new properties from Selling Agents and specials offers from New Home Sales Consultants.

To ensure you get maximum number of offers and that the types of properties offered match your criteria, here are a few tips:

  1. Ensure your headline is clear and indicates you are a serious Buyer.
  2. Make sure your price range is realistic for the area and type of property you are looking for.
  3. Depending on your requirements, you could cast your location net wide or be very specific about where you want to buy. The more specific you are about the location, the less offers you will get but if you only want to live in a particular suburb, this can work for you (it just may take a little more time).
  4. Explain "must haves" - for example if 4 bedrooms are essential, make sure this is clear.
  5. Give Selling Agents and New Home Sales Consultants an idea of your circumstances but don't go into too much detail.
    For example: "Cash Buyer, ready to act" or
    "Pre approved for finance" or
    "Need to sell our home to Buy"
  6. Don't over state your budget hoping that a Seller or Builder will reduce their price to suit you. It is more likely that you will need to find more money if you fall in love with a property outside of your real budget.
  7. When creating your "Headline", ensure that you identify the most important features you are seeking. For example if a pool is critical, ensure this is in the headline - some Selling Agents or New Home Sales Consultants may not read the full description.
  8. Check out our Services Directory before you Buy. You'll find useful contacts in here for Brokers, Conveyancers, Building Inspectors etc. Feel free to use any of your choosing and be sure to let them know you found their details on www.buyersregister.com.au
