Tricky to navigate
There are numerous reviews here that make me doubt their authenticity so I though I would write one, and I also mentioned to BMP that I would write a review.
We got 5 real-estate agents to come through and give us an estimated sale price for our house. Two of them gave a higher price and 3 gave a lower price so we decided to list it for the lower price, as we would be saving on selling fees. After listing the property for 50 days or so and it not selling we decided to rent it out, and try again later, possibly next year.
The BMP crew were nice on the phone and we started up. The photographer was quick to come (2 business days later) and we were online within 8 days of paying the fees. However, we had some problems getting the photos in the right order (as I noticed another reviewer also had). I decided I will keep calling them every 30 min until the problem was solved, as we had our last photo first which looked very unprofessional. Around 6 calls later the photos were finally arranged in the right order. However, after making another adjustment to the text the photos went out of order again. I called only to be told by a gentleman it was not BMPs problem, and that he could do nothing to fix it, as it was realestate.com’s fault. I was told that I have to wait for 24hrs to see if they (realestate.com) can fix it. I knew this was not the case as I had spoken to a nice lady who was able to fix this problem instantly. In his defence he may not have known how to fix it, but I was a bit annoyed, as he was obviously not telling me the truth and seemed to just want to get rid of me.
The other problem I had was when I signed up I wanted to have the large photos on realestate.com. I was persuaded to go with the $2495 plan as this would give me that option. However, when I called to have my photos made larger, was told that the plan I got only features the ad by making it come up first in a search, and not larger. I was a bit annoyed as this is why I paid for the more expensive campaign. I was told that I needed to pay around an extra $1077 to have that feature. So I did. When I called later to have the add be placed at the top of the search, I was told that that option was no longer available to me as the price for this was taken out of the price for the larger photo. This was not at all explained to me properly, from the beginning. The crew was just keen to take the money and, at least as I understood it, did not provide what I was lead to believe they would. In their defence it may have been am error on my part, but if that was the case their explanations were at best lacking.
On the plus side, they offered exactly what I expected that they would. The property did go up online, and despite the numerous phone calls to get it as it was meant to be, they got it up. The market at the moment is not the best and I live in an area where the suburbs are very small making it more difficult to get your add featured in a search. In the 50 days or so the property was for sale I got 7 people (or couples) coming through, one of which was very close to buying. However, it did not sell.
Would I go with them again, probably not at this time, maybe if the market was better, and I was in a different location. If you do go with BMP, my advice is to be insistent, keep calling back and you will eventually get someone who knows how to do what you need them to. Hope it goes well for you!
I couldn't believe how easy it was!
BuyMyPlace was a game changer for me.
After selling several properties previously through agents, losing large amounts in agent fees every time for not a great deal of effort by agents, I really couldn't believe how easy it was to sell it myself. And, all for such a small initial outlay!
When I had an agent appraise my last property I couldn't stomach all of the additional charges for listing it on the internet, photo's, marketing, commissions, etc. I was set to lose ten's of thousands of dollars. That was my light bulb moment.
I only wanted to list it myself on realestate.com.au & domain.com.au, so via a quick Google search, I found BuyMyPlace.com.au. Their website was very easy to understand and looked professional.
I was able to upload my photo's, enter in my price and property description, which then saw my house listed on the big 2 real estate internet sites, just like the rest of the big agents. It was such a good feeling.
The best part was taking calls from people. They got to speak directly with me, the seller. Any questions were answered on the spot, without going through an agent who knows nothing about the house really. I was able to schedule 1 on 1 property viewings with buyers, making me feel much more secure about not having hundreds of strangers going through my house. Security is very important nowadays.
We actually sold our house to a lovely couple driving past who spotted the 'for sale' sign. It was the weekend and I was able to show them through immediately. It was a win-win situation for the both of us. Saving on agent commission fees has enabled us to put extra deposit on some land, and we are currently building a new house.
Since then, I have recommended BuyMyPlace to many other family & friends who have also had great success, and saved thousands, which has made them very happy. One of our property investor friends can't thank me enough for getting him on to BuyMyPlace. It's enabled him to transition into retirement with much more of his hard earned money.
BuyMyPlace is the new 'Uber' disrupting the Real Estate Industry. I entirely recommend them!
Great way to sell your property!!
I sold my property on the first open day! BuyMyplace was easy to navigate and I had to ring them once to check on something and it was sorted straight away. I used my own conveyancer, but I ordered another sign to put on the back of the property and both signs arrived 5 days after signing up. I saved about $18,000 by selling it myself..lucky me thanks to buyMyplace. If you put a reasonable price on your property, and you're not greedy, and it's not above market value you will sell it!!! Thanks buyMyplace
The Way of the Future!!
Sell your property yourself and save those horrendous real estate agent commissions. I sold my property through Buy My Place in two days to the second person who saw it. Settled without any difficulties and the assistance from Buy My Place consultants was fantastic. Well worth the sign on price.
The ONLY way to sell your property
My experience with selling my property using Buy My Place.com was just excellent. A signed contract in just five days and completed in four weeks. Save yourself thousands in wasteful commissions with just a little time and effort doing it yourself. I have recommended and will continue to recommend this way of property selling to friends and family.

Look No Further!
Our experience with BuyMyPlace was nothing short of amazing! We were blown away with how quick, easy and efficient the whole process was, from the minute we decided to sign up all the way through to the final sale.
We never had any issues with the setting up of the sale of our home and whenever we tried to contact someone, we always got a reply within 24 hours. Taking into consideration that BuyMyPlace is a 90% online marketplace, we think this was extremely customer service savvy!
The promotional material we had access to was so professional, especially the property listing online, the flyers that were printed out and the signboard for the front of our house. A few people that had come by during our first Home Open didn't even realise we were selling privately, as we didn't get a chance to put our signboard up in the first weekend (BuyMyPlace were not at fault for this). The potential buyers saw our ad online thinking it was a Real Estate Agency acting on our behalf. When we told them we were selling through BuyMyPlace, they were amazed!
Obviously a house has the potential to sell itself, but we are certain and extremely confident that BuyMyPlace helped us achieve our goal so much quicker than if we went through an Estate Agent. We managed to sell our house after our second Home Open!
Also, we saved ourselves a considerable amount of money by avoiding all the Real Estate Agent fees, so this is a huge win win situation!
Overall, our experience was incredibly stress-free, highly successful and we would definitely recommend BuyMyPlace to all our friends and family in Australia!
Land was advertised thru this organisation, I have enquired 3 to 4 times for someone to get back to me, I received the yes we have received your enquiry, and that's the last you hear from them, this was weeks ago, still no response, I have giving up, not even sure this organisation is legit, said land is still showing for sale, a joke, unprofessional service.
Read the reviews on this company... they are so perfect. Well...I am selling through them. I get an email enquiry daily- every third email is the exact same question and wording, some the english is a bit back to front....strange-not one phone call. Then- the phone enquiries start, but they arent real either. However, they give you the high clicks of interest and statistics.
I have an online business- they are pretty savy in giving themselves plenty of 5 stars.
I had my friend ring at 5.30 and enquire- she was on hold ten minutes then got an answering machine- and no return call the next day!!!
Im so disappointed to see them waisting my energy and time with so many false enquiries. Im concerned I wont respond to a real one. Im sure they will call- if they are given my number.
I loved the whole process!
People loved that I was selling my own place! If real estate agents were willing to pick up a paintbrush and fix the fence, then maybe they would be worth $20,000. But they don’t. Getting a property ready for sale was a lot harder than actually selling it. Thanks for BMP for making it possible! Great experience!
My experience with BuyMyplace was wonderfull and hassle free, staff were very accommodating and helpful, I would recommend to family and friends who want to sell there homes.
From start to SOLD BuyMyPlace made it easy
Enjoyed selling my own property and having full control of the process. I am not very good with computers but they helped me upload the beautiful photos and I was away laughing. My sister is looking to sell her house, expect a call soon BuyMyPlace.
Selling my property through BuyMyPlace was a rewarding experience. BuyMyPlace guided me, step my step, throughout the entire process. Each step was easily achievable. It involved writing the property description with their help, the photographer achieved the best images, the signage was supplied and erected, the advertising was all included. A contract document was supplied by the conveyance company. I was able to meet the interested groups of people during the inspections and received their comments. It was a rewarding experience and I saved the agents commission fees.
What a fabulous experience
We were a little nervous to begin with but the support we received from Buy My Place was amazing and gave us confidence to move forward. The photographer captured the desired effect so we wrote our description and uploaded it. Within 20 minutes of it appearing on Real Estate .com we had our first contact. We were unavailable to show them through that day so they came the following day. They had been looking for 12 months and our home ticked all their boxes so they made a very acceptable offer on the spot, which we accepted. Using Buy My Place saved us the commission we would have been required to pay an agent so It was the easiest $15,000 we had ever saved. The actual sale process couldn't be easier either. Simply appoint your conveyancer, have them complete a contract with your property details. Once the sell/buy price has been agreed upon, complete that section of the contract along with the buyers details and their conveyancer/solicitor details. Submit to your conveyancer who does the rest. If we ever do sell again, we will most certainly use Buy My Place without hesitation and happily recommend to anyone thinking of selling.
Simple as ABC
Buy my place is the best thing since sliced Bread, very easy to do Sold my place in 6 weeks from start of process to money in the bank. Thankyou very much.
Simple and Saved Money
I originally thought the whole process would be too difficult and nearly just went with an Agent. However, after talking with buyMyplace, I realised that I could do this myself. Not only was it simple, but I saved thousands as well. Thanks buyMyplace.
Tried it ! don't waste your money
We wasted our time & money, six months listed not one enquiry & no real help from the Office. They don't see your property, don't value your property & basically list it online with a couple of online agents as well as their site but as the weeks turn to months it just gets buried. We asked for a review & never got one & trying to phone them & speak to someone.....someone is always going to call you back...not.
Very happy. Got my price and saved thousands in commission.Easy to follow the process & we would us byMyplace again if we move.
Very positive experience, great outcome!
I recently sold my property through buyMyplace and I can honestly say it was a very rewarding experience. I was a little nervous about the process as my computer skills are limited but the buyMyplace team were so very helpful, patient and friendly. Unbelievably, once it was all set up and I sent the property live, it was sold in four days which was great AND... I saved thousands in estate agent's commission!! If anyone out there has a property to sell, I recommend they give it a shot!!
Why use an agent!
After having a number of agents through our house I came to the conclusion that the house would sell its self. The bonus from that would be the huge savings. Our house was under offer after the second home open which was a great result. The staff at Buy my Place were very helpful and were available should you need them.
