How do I know if I am paying too much for a property?
Here’s where we really go to work for you. After our physical inspection of your desired home we will drive by all comparable sales in 3km vicinity. We will then provide you with the most up to date and detailed report of the property including our opinion of the properties worth, what the comparable sales are, what capital gains the suburb may have had for the last 5 years.

How do you service expat and overseas buyers?
Skeen Property Buyer’s have been servicing expatriates, interstate buyers and foreign investors for many years. With our clients living abroad we understand that communication is of the upmost importance to them and we communicate with them via phone, email or Skype regularly. We know there are time differences and will often call an overseas client very late at night or early morning. Once we have found your dream property, we can provide you with extensive market analysis as well as digital photo and virtual tours of the property and its location. Our company is fully geared to provide service for people offshore and interstate. We are also available 7 days a week, 24hrs a day.
What is the difference between a buyers’ agent and a selling agent?
The key difference is the selling agent is acting on behalf of the vendor (seller) to secure the highest possible price from the buyer. A Buyer’s Agent negotiates with the sales agent for the lowest possible price and most favorable terms & conditions for the buyer. The buyers agent works exclusively for the buyer, whereas the selling agent works for the vendor. By law an agent cannot act for (and accept a commission) from both parties in the transaction.
Do you ever represent the vendor in selling a property?
No. We never sell property or accept sales commission from Seller, developers or their real estate agents.
Do you offer a service guarantee?
Our guarantee is we are committed to protecting our clients at all times throughout the property transaction process to ensure the lowest possible purchase price, and most favorable terms and conditions are achieved in every circumstance. Please see what our clients say, with our help, you will save time, money and stress on your next property purchase.
How does Skeen Property Buyers charge for your services?
We charge a flat fee on a sliding scale. There is a small commencement fee and a success fee. The success fee is only payable once we have delivered a property you love and have successfully negotiated and exchanged at a price you are happy with.
Why should I use Skeen Property Buyers to purchase a property when I could do it myself?
You will save yourself money, time and stress when you engage us as your buyers’ agent. Purchasing property is not something everyone is doing a regular basis and many people are inexperienced or do not have the expertise to negotiate effectively. How do you know there is not going to be a large development being built next door or is the asking price really worth it? With us you will be empowered with the knowledge you need, to make a well informed decision about the value of a property. We will protect you from making an emotional decision. You will have the benefit of our extensive research into past sales and comparable market data and will be protected from paying too much. What our clients say describe the ways we have been able to add value to our many clients.
Does a buyers’ agent need to have a real estate background?
Yes. Robert Skeen is a licensed real estate agent with an extensive real estate sales background. I believe this is important trait to have as you understand what is going on in the selling agent’s minds and can anticipate their next move in the critical negotiation process, read what our clients say and you will be impressed by the results.
Are Buyer’s Agent’s fees tax deductible?
Fees charged by Buyer’s Agents may be tax deductible if buying an investment property but not for an apartment or house you intend to occupy. We recommend you consult a reputable accountant or tax specialist to determine your individual circumstances.
