It took all the anxiety out of buying
“The Buyer’s Agent service was the best part of our OwnHome experience. It made everything easy. Through the process, they advised us on why different houses were or weren’t appropriate for us - it really built trust. So, when we did choose a house, we were so confident. It took all the anxiety out of buying”

How it works

Feel the relief of an informed and supportive buyers agent—an included service with your Deposit Boost Loan.
Deposit Boost Loan
With your deposit boost loan approval and your standard-rate home loan approved, you’ll be assigned your new best friend (very own Buyer's Agent).
Supercharged home hunting
Get a handpicked list of homes matching your dream criteria, refreshed each week - which can also include off market homes.
Stress-free due diligence
Avoiding the wrong property is as important as buying the right one. When you’ve found ‘the one’, we’ll read every report and help you go through the contracts with a fine-tooth comb.
Expert negotiation
Watch while the gloves come off. We’ll assess each home's value and develop a negotiation strategy using a data-backed, expertise-led process, so you won’t overpay.

Home buying questions, answered.

How much does the service cost?

You get a dedicated Buyer's Agent included as part of your 1-2% (+GST) upfront Starter Payment to get started with OwnHome. This includes a team of property hunters, plus expert guidance on contracts and due diligence.

What is and isn’t included?

OwnHome’s Buyer’s Agent service is included as part of your 1-2% (+GST) Starter Payment.

It includes

  • Property hunting and shortlisting homes
  • Obtaining building and pest inspection and strata reports 
  • Our support and expert guidance, every step of the way

Here's what can't be included

  • Stamp duty and other government fees and taxes
  • Conveyancing
  • Third party costs (things like title insurance, which can be helpful if the seller didn’t get council permission for their DIY - but don’t worry, your conveyancer will always run these by you, there’ll be no surprises!)
What’s a building and pest inspection report?

A building and pest inspection report helps to uncover hidden damage or defects in a property before you bid on or buy a home. Each report can cost from $100 - 450 - but you get this included in the service.

As part of the Buyer’s Agent service with OwnHome, we request and review a building and pest inspection report for all freestanding homes to check for structural damage, rising damp, pest infestations (such as termites) and other common defects. This step helps you to get informed and make a confident purchase decision.

What’s a conveyancer?

Conveyancing is the process of transferring the legal ownership of the land to the new owner. A conveyancer is a qualified professional who will help you ensure that your home purchase happens smoothly. OwnHome works with conveyancers who are experts at advising home buyers when reviewing contracts and navigating the settlement process.
