Vendor Advocacy is relatively new to Real Estate in Australia. The service of Vendor Advocacy is growing rapidly because home sellers are not being told the truth by the agent that is supposed to be representing them. The agents have a tendency to quote high estimated selling prices, and once a vendor is committed to them, they apply extreme pressure on them to accept offers significantly lower.
Today many agents still use selling techniques that are not only outdated but also go unchecked. Agents also have a conflict of interest because they are dealing with both the seller and the buyer. Bond Street Real Estate acts exclusively for the home seller and appoints the selling agent on their behalf. This process takes the control away from the agent and puts it back in the hands of the seller.
By having this control, the home seller is assured that selling agents will deliver on their promises – meaning they will market the property with professionalism and competence, act fairly when introducing buyers and charge a commission that is fair and reasonable. When a home is successfully sold, the agreed commission is shared between the real estate agent and us.
Using our Vendor Advocacy services is at no additional cost to the home seller.
