What is PurpleBricks Australia?
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.
Thinking of using Purple Bricks? There's a better way!
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.

You are probably on this page because you have heard about Purple Bricks. PropertyNow and Purple Bricks have one thing in common, in that we both drastically reduce the cost of traditional real estate sales. In fact PropertyNow disrupted the traditional real estate industry in Australia ( during 2004) a full decade before purple bricks came out here in 2016.
Purple Bricks has made a big song and dance about their $4500 set price service and it’s quite true that it would be much cheaper than a traditional commission sale. However the Purple Bricks saving is far below the saving made in using PropertyNow.
If Purple bricks has halved the costs of a traditional agent that’s great but guess what – we have halved that cost again. This is because PropertyNow provides all the key services of Purple bricks and at around half the price. You see the only major difference is that purple bricks may provide someone to open the door to buyers, however you should know that this involves an extra cost to you beyond the $4,500 price tag and it is in any case mostly unnecessary. PropertyNow clients have managed just fine in selling their own homes and we have already saved Australians in excess of 70 million dollars, whereas at the time of writing (September 2016 ) Purple bricks appears to have saved Australians little or nothing.
If you are doing a purplebricks comparison then please understand that PropertyNow lets you conduct a private sale for just $694 and yet still appear on all the major agent sites like realestate.com.au and domain.com.au. To do so with Purple Bricks costs Four and a half thousand dollars. Even our most expensive package (which includes a Valuation and a Negotiation service) is still less than half the price of the Purple Bricks core service.
To make a really well informed decision, we suggest you study the comparison table below. The table is not one of those designed to make us look good and our opposition look bad, it is based solely on facts and what we see on the purplebrick website , versus what is depicted on our own. We have no fear of you measuring our service with anyone else and in fact we much prefer people to do some diligent comparison shopping. We hope that the comparison table below makes the process a little easier for you, but if you are at all confused then simply email us and request a call, as we are available 7 days.
