I'm thinking of selling me house in beenleigh qld. Are there upfront fee ? I would like to know more about how it all works.
Hi Tracy, Thanks for getting in touch. It's awesome to hear you're interested in selling your property yourself! Yes, there is only one upfront fee upon signing up with us. The price depends on which campaign you select. (For more information visit https://www.buymyplace.com.au/packages/) I'm happy to set up a free consultation for you to chat with one of our Private Property Specialists. In that conversation, we'll work together to identify your property goals and priorities to see what option best suits you. Kindly email email@example.com with your contact details and we'll get you started! Looking forward to hearing from you. - Emily
Hi, planning to sell your property and is considering Buy my place. Are you able to run me through the process and what happens is a potential buyer commits to buy our property? Do we need a broker? TIA
How long does the initial contract run for after signing up?
Not real sure on how long the contracts run for, however I would imagine it would be no different as if you were to list it with a local realestate agent normally around 6 month contract.
We are in rural NSW (Pambula 2549) and have read reviews that say 'if you are rural don't bother using this service'. I have looked through what has sold and listed and this comments appears to be correct. Can someone clarify that your rural customers get the same service as their city counterparts?
Yes, you get the same service products. However, the problem is within the listing itself. Agents will put a small suburb within say Tamworth as listing in Tamworth so your property will come up under generic search. Most people if moving rural only know the main town say Boonah QLD, not Maroon. But it is part of Boonah. These suburbs that blink and miss will only come up as an after thought right down the bottom saying also found. So you are way less likely to be viewed. As I previously said technically Buymyplace is going off correct address but rural is very different to people knowing what suburb they want to live in in the city of say Paramatta. So rural or remote rural better off using local agents and aiming for best deal on commission.

What is the best way to sell a property that needs painting and updating?
Hi Kathy, I guess that depends on whether you are selling it as a rental investment or a home. I've done some property developments or renovation flips over the years and you can usually always add more value than the cost for redecorating if you stay within your budget. If you have the time there are a lot of things you can do yourself such as painting to save money. But professionals can do a top job and quicker, so best to weigh that up... I discovered buymyplace.com.au amongst others when I was looking at alternatives to selling through traditional real estate agencies, which I have always had poor experiences with and on reflection have wasted a fortune with on commissions. They've been holding sellers for ransom for years. A friend of mine who I've done some property development Joint Ventures with over the years has recently purchased a real estate business license with a emerging national brand called Hello Real Estate. Ironically they are the company I ranked as the best when I was looking and it's them that I was referring to in my review. (They are unlike any other Vendor Assisted Seller option out there) I was pleasantly surprised when I found out my friend was partnering with them because he has a lot of integrity and feels the same way I do about the need to change the realestate sales industry. His name is Dan, he has literally launched in the past week and his local business Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/hellosunnycoast/ Maybe you might like to visit and 'like' his page to stay abreast of the services Hello offer throughout the country? They include stylist's within their package, not decorators, but he may be able to find a decorator local to you via his network. A long shot, but might be worth asking. I hope this helps, best wishes with what ever you decide. Dane
