Welcome to this week’s insightful video update, where we delve into a common phenomenon that many property buyers encounter: buyer fatigue. We understand the frustration and exhaustion that can accompany the journey to finding your dream property. In our conversations with sales agents and clients, we’ve observed the symptoms of buyer fatigue surfacing more frequently. Today, we explore what it entails and how our expert guidance can revitalize your property search, providing you with a renewed sense of confidence and peace of mind.
Buying a property can feel daunting. We’re talking about a major financial commitment –often the biggest purchase most people will make in their lifetime. There’s also the emotional investment of selecting a space for you and your family to live in for the next few years. You really want to get the purchase right.
In my job I see the same people, week after week, open home after open home. Many are exhausted from attending yet another run of inspections, burning up their precious Saturday and feeling no closer to success. If you’ve been trying to buy, I have five tell tale signs that it’s time to stop and call a professional.
I was recently reminded of a common problem that can cost some buyers either the opportunity to purchase their dream home, or thousands more dollars in a transaction. It’s a mistake that’s amplified when markets are shifting gear too – which is exactly the case right now.
Units have been in demand among many buyers of late. Increased cost of living and tighter rental conditions – along with rising rental returns – have seen buyer numbers swell for attached housing.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock in a cave below a coal mine in the middle of a distant planet, you’d be aware Brisbane has won the right to host the 2032 Olympic Games. It’s going to be a sensational event when the world’s eyes will focus on our neck of the woods while we host the most significant celebration of sport on earth.
This month, the RBA chose to pause on their program of consecutive rate rises. Our team at Locate think this was a smart move. Annual inflation had fallen for three months in a row. In addition, there are other tensions playing out in the economy, so continued rate increases threatened an overshoot that could have plunged Australia into recession.

Welcome to the final instalment of my series about accurately assessing a property’s market value.
In my earlier videos and blogs, I discussed the essential elements for determining land value and considerations related to the house and improvements.
So, this week it’s about assessing the influence of the market on a property’s value and why you might choose to be more, or less, bullish with your offer.
One of the most interesting aspects of being a buyers’ agent is observing how Brisbane’s property market changes and evolves. In recent times, you may have heard about the uptick in demand for affordable units. The reason is that buyers who are unwilling to compromise on location but are hamstrung by price are choosing units as an alternative to a house.

Here are our four steps for taking on a new client.
When homebuying, a client will have many questions around strategy and timing. They’ll want to know if they should purchase now or wait. They’ll also be keen to understand whether to compromise on condition or shoot for quality. They’ll be eager to understand the prospect of property values rising and how that fits with their plans.
Most property market professionals will tell you it’s difficult to gauge market direction for the coming year until we’ve seen several weeks of sales activity. But a buyers’ agency like ours is in a unique position compared to office-based analysts and economists. As a buyers’ agent we are on the ground and engaging daily with purchasers and sellers from our first workday of the year.
Here’s why the festive season is an outstanding opportunity to buy fantastic pre-market property that only buyers’ agents know about.

While buyers’ agents have been around for decades in Australia, their prominence has risen dramatically in the past 10 years. Yet, we’re still often asked what a buyers’ agent does and who benefits most from our skills. Well, here’s an answer to some of those burning questions, and they explain why it’s crucial to have a buying specialist on your side.
Buyers’ agents in Australia have grown in prominent throughout the past decade. What started as a niche profession has evolved into an industry that assists purchasers in locations across the nation. But while we’ve gained recognition as a profession, there’s still some hesitancy among the wider population because many don’t know what our fees are and how much value we bring to the transaction.
When it comes to purchasing a property, most buyers will strive for quality. The appeal of owning a fantastic home with excellent long-term capital growth potential can’t be beat. As a result, we find demand for A-Grade homes remains fairly constant regardless of what’s happening in other residential sectors, and this week’s key sales are a reminder of this premise.
On the surface, Brisbane’s property market is delivering mixed messages, but if you dig deeper the data begins to make sense. Look at the Auction Clearance rate for example. It describes the percentage of properties that went to auction this week and sold under the hammer. Many consider it an up-to-date gauge of market performance.
