Anybody have anyone they can recommend? I'm just looking at getting someone to bid on my behalf, none of the frills associated with using a buyers advocate like estimating the value, market DD etc. That's all been done and this particular property goes to auction when I won't be in town. I have a good friend in Melbourne I can get to come up, which I think I would prefer over using someone I don't know from a bar of soap. I've called around a few and they charge in the range of $500 for this service. Aside from recommendations, If you have any experiences with this or would like to comment. I'm interested in your thoughts. This auction is mortgagee in possession. My lawyer tells me I should use someone I implicitly trust, this sort of rules out buyer agents doesn't it? I can get my friend up here on flights with a rental car cheaper than $500, what would you do? The friend has never bid at auction but is more than qualified for the task. Whomever goes on my behalf I will get to use a camera phone so I can see whats happening i guess. Thoughts?
