Q: Can you provide the same property listings as an agent?

We sure can!

If you decide to join us at buyMyplace, your property will be listed on all the major real estate websites, including Realestate.com.au & Domain.com.au.

You can even boost your online exposure by upgrading your listing across a range of websites or via social media.

Call us on 1300 289 697 and speak with one of our Private Property Specialists to find out more.

Q: Do you have someone in my area I can speak with in person?

Being an online business, we don’t have anyone on-ground for you to meet in person. Our professional and knowledgeable Customer Service Team & Private Property Specialists are available 7 days per week to help answer any questions you may have.

Q: How does it work?

Selling your own property is easy with buyMyplace.

1. Purchase your advertising campaign and get your property listed
2. Hold Open For Inspections and answer all of your potential buyers’ questions
3. Negotiate with your buyers and get your property sold!

Once you have purchased your campaign we provide you with all of the tools and support you need to get your property sold.

Q: How long does it take to sell a property?

While the overall aggregate selling period ranges from 4 – 6 weeks, there are many factors that can influence selling time.
Factors include the location of your property; the features of your property; the wants and availability of potential buyers; the strength of the market; and the price you set for your property.

On average, our customers sell their properties 24 days faster if they choose our Ultimate Campaign, when compared to those who select our Basic Campaign.

Q: How do I arrange a contract of sale?

We believe Contracts of Sale are best left to the pros.

Engage a conveyancer or settlement agent (for our friends in WA) and they’ll conduct the necessary searches to provide you with a Contract of Sale and other supporting documents as required.

Once you have interested buyers, you’ll be able to provide them with a copy of your contract to start the negotiation process. We suggest you start the conveyancing process as soon as you buy your buyMyplace campaign to ensure you’re ready with contracts by the time your property ‘goes live’ on the market.

buyMyplace have a national partnership with a reputable conveyancing firm. Contact us at 1300 289 697 and our friendly team will put you in touch.

 

Q: How do I determine the value of my property?

Finding the right price for your home is essential when it comes to selling your property because you need to find the perfect balance. Too much, and it can languish for months on the market; and too little might see you missing out on money.

Firstly, don’t confuse valuations for sales purposes with a bank valuation or Valuer General’s land valuation. Banks tend to apply conservative valuation methods, while the Valuer-General doesn’t take into account your home or buildings.

Landing on the right price is all about being knowledgeable about your local market and there are plenty of easy, accessible ways to do your research.

A great place to start is searching for recently Sold properties on Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au to find out how much properties similar to yours have sold for in your area. You can also see how long properties were listed on the market.

Sites such as Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au have links to valuation sites, we recommend using them. Be sure to compare those valuations to leading analytics sites, such as Property Value (www.propertyvalue.com.au) and On The House (www.onthehouse.com.au). These are great resources, and guess what? They’re free!

If you join us at buyMyplace, you’ll have access to the valuation service we use, which is powered by Core Logic-RP Data – the same subscription-based service used by traditional agents.

Q: Is it possible to mix and match components of a campaign?

Absolutely! Give us a ring on 1300 289 697 to speak to one of our Private Property Specialists and ask for a quote for the campaign inclusions you require.

Q: Can we purchase any extra products to help us in the sale of our property?

For sure! You can purchase additional products anytime throughout your campaign. Simply call our team directly on 1300 289 697 for assistance.

Q: Can we upgrade our listing on Realestate.com.au or Domain.com.au?

Both Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au offer three upgrade options with various levels of exposure. These upgrades are available for either 30 or 45 days in length.

Boosting your online presence can give you the chance to sell your property up to 45% faster! Remember, you can upgrade and boost your exposure at any stage throughout your campaign.

We understand selling privately can be a daunting process. That’s why we’re available 7 days per week to support you through the whole process. From getting your listing online to seeking advice for the best way to engage with your buyers, we’ve got you covered.

Give us a call anytime on 1300 289 697 – we’re always happy to help.

Q: Can I get someone to write my property description?

Of course you can. Our professional copywriter will work with you to craft an engaging property description that will entice potential buyers to enquire.

Professional Copywriting is included in our Professional and Ultimate campaigns. However, if you prefer our Basic Campaign, you can add Professional Copywriting to your campaign for just $149.

Q: Can you complete the listing for me?

Our online listing and set up process is very straight-forward, so you shouldn’t run into any troubles. However, if you do require extra support and guidance, our Customer Support Team is available 7 days per week to help get you on the right track.

Q: I live in regional / country area, does this matter?

We are very proud to be able to support and service property owners Australia-wide.

In fact, approximately 50% of our customers have sold property in regional areas. We have plenty of experience servicing regional & remote areas, so you’ll receive the same excellent Customer Service from us no matter where your property is located.

Q: Agents say they can sell my property better than me, is this true?

From our 2018 customer survey we’re proud to report:
– 86% received the price they expected when selling their own property; and
– 82% sold their property within their expected time frame.

We believe all Australians can sell their own property. Why? Because no one knows your property like you – the owner.

If you join us at buyMyplace, we’ll list you on the same property portals as agents, such as Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au. Plus, we provide you with the same quality marketing materials as an agent. The only difference is that 100% of your sale price goes back in your pockets, not an agent’s. How good is that?

Q. What happens if I can't sell my property after 6 months on the market?

When purchasing a campaign with buyMyplace, your listing remains active with us until your property is sold.

If you find that your property is taking a little longer to sell than what you would like, you can request a Listing Analysis conversation with one of our experts who will be happily provide suggestions and options to help get your property sold. This is a complimentary service because we’re invested in supporting you to get your property sold.

Q. Can I list with buyMyplace and an agent?

If you decide to sell privately, you can do as you please!

If you’d like to list your property with us plus an agent, go for gold. However, we recommend you enter into a ‘Non-Exclusive Agents Authority’ with your agent so that if you end up selling your property yourself through buyMyplace you’ll get to pocket 100% of your sale price, instead of paying your agent commission.

Q. What if I am already listed with an agent? Can I also sell with buyMyplace?

We would love to help you sell privately and we have no issue with you being listed with an agent. However, we highly recommend re-reading the fine print on your ‘Agency Agreement’ to ensure you won’t be in breach of the contract you signed with you agent.

Q. I don't want people to see my phone number on the advertisement, can I hide it?

How potential buyers contact you is completely up to you – this can be via phone, email or both. However, we do believe that the more contactable you are, the better chance you have of selling your property faster.

Q. How long does it take to put my property on the market?

On average, we suggest giving yourself at least a 2-week lead time from purchasing your campaign to going live on the market.

This will allow time for cleaning & organising your home, arranging professional photography, posting your For Sale Board, planning your Open for Inspections and giving your conveyancer time to get your Contracts of Sale prepared.

Q. How long is my listing on buyMyplace for?

At buyMyplace, your listing will remain on all the major real estate portals until it is successfully sold.

Q: If I want professional photography, how long before the photographer comes to take photos?

A professional photographer should be in touch within 2 business days to arrange a mutually convenient time to complete your property’s photo shoot. Once taken, the photos will be sent to you within 72 hours (although generally they are sent within 24-48 hours).

Q: How long does it take to get my For Sale signboard up?

Delivery times depend on the campaign purchased and where your property is located. However, the majority of our boards are successfully delivered within 3-5 business days from the date you purchase your campaign.
