Is PropertyNow still open?

YES! Because we operate fully remote and online (and have for a decade), the services we provide to you are not impacted by Covid 19. We’re open for business and here to support you.

In fact, we’ve extended our support

As the situation is changing day by day (and sometimes hour by hour), we’re maintaining our extended hours 7 days a week and have increased our live chat availability to keep up with demand. 

Talk to us anytime via phone, email, live chat, or SMS about your listing, how Covid-19 might impact you, (or if you simply need a friendly chat).

What else are we doing to help?

During this uncertain period, we’re offering free pauses on all active listings in case you need to delay your sale. Keep your listing paused for up to 12 months and reactivate free of charge whenever you like.

Need a new listing upon reactivation? We’d be happy to arrange this for you at a significantly discounted rate.

Need to change your ‘For Sale’ listing to a ‘Rental’ listing? We’re offering 50% off your rental advertising fee. (To be eligible, you must have an active For Sale listing for the address you want to list).

Email us at to enquire about these offers.
