How Successful is the PropertyNow System?
- Category: Common Questions
In the past, the biggest barriers to private selling and renting were a lack of exposure, lack of advice, and lack of tools. Since we invented "agent assisted private sales" back in 2004, we've solved these problems and helped thousands of people sell and rent their homes without paying a single dollar in commission. We can help you rent or sell your own home privately with our for sale by owner services.
Our service includes:
A decade ago, sellers could probably afford to rely on newspaper and other forms of advertising but as of 2016, 86% of buyers now use the internet as their main tool when searching for properties. As a private seller, you could try just listign on Gumtree or a for sale by owner website but you'd be missing out on exposing your property to the more than three million people visit realestate.com.au each month. In our experience, in most areas of Australia, realestate.com.au is currently the source of around 80% of all enquiries we receive.
You do need a real estate agent to list on realestate.com.au but you definitely don't need to pay a commission! Back in 2004, we developed a hybrid service that allows you to list on realestate.com.au and other websites as a private seller, ensuring you get the exposure you need to get your property sold. In the past, the biggest barriers to private selling and renting were a lack of exposure, lack of advice, and lack of tools. We've solved these problems and have helped thousands of people sell and rent their homes without paying a single dollar in commission.
There's currently a significant amount of media attention surrounding PurpleBricks' launch in Australia, but who are they, and are they your best option? PurpleBricks is a UK owned estate agent network with a flat fee $4500. Whilst the launch of PurpleBricks is another step in the right direction, there are already established alternatives with much more to offer.
You've heard about PurpleBricks, but what of PropertyNow? PropertyNow and Purple Bricks have one thing in common, we both drastically reduce the cost of traditional real estate sales. In fact PropertyNow disrupted the traditional real estate industry in Australia a full decade before PurpleBricks arrived in Australia.
Purple Bricks has made a big song and dance about their $4500 set price service and it's true, this is much cheaper than selling with a traditional real estate agent - but PropertyNow costs you even less! PropertyNow provides all the key services that PurpleBricks offer, and at around half the price. The only major difference is that with PurpleBricks you have the option of paying extra (on top of the $4500 advertised) to have someone open your door for inspections whereas with PropertyNow you do this step yourself (backed by support from our team, 7 days a week.) Whilst PurpleBricks want you to think you can't do this step yourself, we've found that most buyers actually prefer to deal direct with the owner (due to a lack of trust in real estate agents). If you're a little unsure we also offer free tutorial videos, step by step guides and free advice from a licensed real estate agent.
Agents are taking $20,000 out of your pocket just to open the door.
