Estate agents in South Africa are mandated by the Seller and therefore look after the Sellers best interest. A Buyers consultant will focus on the needs of the buyer only.
Buyer’s agents assist prospective homebuyers and immigrants with finding a home suited to their needs. They make finding a home easier, especially to those who are not too familiar with the buying process or areas they are searching in.
