Juggling a couple of home sales across two states - made easier with buyMyplace
Jennie is one busy lady – juggling a couple of home sales across two states (Queensland and NSW) with purchasing new property and preparing to embark on a new Bed and Breakfast business in Adelaide, which makes her successful DIY sale of her investment holiday unit in Nambucca Heads all the more remarkable.
“A local agent had the property on the market for three months, without a single bite and I did not want to be paying a commission and marketing fees for that,” says Jennie. “The unit is one of the most popular holiday lets in Nambucca head and has back to back bookings throughout the year, so it was surprising that there was no interest.”
Despite living four hours away on the Gold Coast, Jennie decided she could do a much better job selling her Northern NSW apartment, and she was not mistaken.
“Being such a sought after holiday town I chose my market accordingly – owners who may like to use the apartment and rent it out to holiday makers in their absence.”
Jennie drove down once to take five groups through, including two lots of overseas investors who had flown in to inspect.
“I also made arrangements to meet up with 3 local interested parties and as it happened, one of them was the purchaser,” she says. She chose from three interested parties and rather than get into a bidding war, she chose the cash-buyer who was not waiting on finance approval.
Jennie’s advice to would-be vendors is: “Always answer emails courteously and promptly, even if the potential purchaser’s initial email isn’t polite or you suspect them of not being a serious proposition. I also followed up the promising sounding emails with a phone-call.”
“To be honest it was so damned easy. I wouldn’t hesitate to sell through buyMyplace again, and if I found myself too busy with my new business, I would be interested to investigate the new full-service package where I could use an agent.”

Thank-you, thank-you & thank-you again!
We had advertised elsewhere before going with buymyplace. The queries really sped up since then with much greater Ad exposure, even over the supposedly quiet Xmas/New Year period. Thank-you very much for such fantastic savings and support. It was so easy. As an owner you know the property best and can give information that no real estate agent can. There's no pressure to start with a low price or continued pressure to keep dropping the price. Don't hesitate to go with buymyplace - a little time and effort will give you big savings. Thank-you, thank-you & thank-you again. (February, 2016)

A fantastic alternative for people wishing to sell their own homes.
A fantastic alternative for people wishing to sell their own homes.rnVery cheap, the vendor is in complete control of all inquiry and I obtained tens of thousands of dollars in excess of what some of the local agents quoted what they said the property was worth.rnThe internet inquiry was constant.

I believe anyone can do it.
Selling my property through buymyplace.com.au was simple. The key for me was finding those individuals who would fall in love with the property. I believe anyone can do it. Anyone who looks for a property these days generally use realestate.com.au or domain.com.au, which BMP provides access to. What else do you need? (January, 2016)

You can do it!
It can be sold successfully by yourself , depending on your circumstances you may have to wait some time for the right buyer but so would a agent.rnIf the saving you make by not paying commission to an agent reduces the price for the buyer you have a better chance of selling. (January, 2016)rn

Saved me big bucks!
It was an easy tool and platform to use. Most important saved me big bucks not having to pay Agency fees. (December, 2015)
- Joe Lim
Perfect option for us and was value for money.
It was great not to have to use an agent and sell our property ourselves, particularly due to the fees that we would have incurred. As our property was vacant land, we didn't feel as though an agent would have necessarily provided any value add - selling through Buy My Place was the perfect option for us and was value for money with assistance provided when we needed it. (January, 2016)

I probably saved $12,000

The commission saved was fantastic...
I would use Buy My Place again next time as the commission saved was fantastic and selling our own house & having direct contact with Buyers was very important. The sign out the front and listings on the prominent Real Estate websites make it a simple choice. (December, 2015)
