The buyer’s advocate has started helping us with all the stuff that can be handled by a buyer’s advocate. She’s started searching for homes that meet our criteria in our preferred area and surrounding suburbs and I’m really happy with what she’s been able to find so far. In fact, I’m not just happy, I’m impressed. I’m impressed with how efficiently and effectively she’s been able to source properties, properties that I hadn’t even seen during my own research.
I had always heard that buyer’s advocates servicing Melbourne had special access to properties before they went to market or even properties that were never going to become public at all, but I never really believed it. I guess that’s because I’m the type of person who has to see it to believe it, and seeing as you can’t see buyer’s advocates snatching up properties that aren’t available to the public, I couldn’t believe it. That’s also saying a lot because, with my brain fog that I’m suffering under, I usually don’t have the energy to get worked up or impressed by anything. Maybe working with the buyer’s agent is helping cure my brain fog after all.
I’ve shown my future husband the properties sent to us by the buyer’s advocate. Brighton is definitely a suburb that he’d be happy to live in, and so would I due to its close proximity to the beach, multiple train stations and really good, reputable schools. My boyfriend and I are really collectively excited about the prospect of moving to Brighton and I hope that we’ll be able to make some bids on the properties the buyer’s advocate has presented to us.
Anyway, I don’t have much else to say at this point because we haven’t made any big moves yet. We’re still very much in the planning stage of this whole process, but it’s very exciting, to say the least.
