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 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.
Saved a lot of money
Using this site allowed access to all the prominent real estate web sites not accessible for listing by the general public. This mainly all real estate agents do. It was just a matter of being there for the openings and downloading the generic "Make an offer sheet" for people at the openings. Updating descriptions, photos and changing opening times is web based and very quick and easy. The sign provided by "Buymyplace" did its job and the delivery was prompt. I did not require any help with creating the listing and taking photographs but he...lp is offered. The house sold well within the average time frame for this area. If you are prepared to put in a bit of effort with openings, you do not need expensive real estate agents doing the same thing you can do yourself. Do not believe the line "We have clients waiting for houses" They may have clients waiting for cheap bargains but most buyers look on the internet now.
Saved over $10,000 in commissions, offer within 6 weeks using buyMyplace
Very professional service offered at a great low price. I paid just $650 for a full internet listing on all the main property sites, comprehensive help with writing my particulars and instant leads from genuine purchases. We were able to interact and explain everything about our property that no agent could ever do to our buyers who offered near full listing price. No dramas just more money in our pockets!

Very disappointed in the service (or lack of it) provided. From the start there was terrible communication and emails and phone calls were not returned for the most part. I did test enquiries and these never got to me. When I contacted the again and was actually able to get a hold of someone, they said that they would like into the problem but of course never got back to me. A request for a refund or even partial refund was outright refused.

You get what you pay for
Never got an offer on my house using them and ended up using an agent. After much arguing and a complaint lodged with NSW Fair Trading I received a full refund. The points below are copied from an email from them acknowledging that there was a lack of service based upon:
Email not being changed accordingly (I left my job when I engaged them and despite repeated requests to up update to my personal email address, they kept sending all correspondence to my old work email which was read by the person who took over my role);

Sold my place with honesty and integrity
I used this facility after ridiculous promises, huge over the top advertising costs made by Real Estate Agents just to get the sale Then talking it down by making crazy comparisons.. Each new one talked it up and was disingenuous. 1 hour twice a week with expensive advertising was ineffectual. Also a friend came on a few open houses incognito to check out what the Agents were doing. They had so much stock they were pulling people aside and talking it down and saying they think they owner would settle for less if pushed which was a total porky....The just wanted the sale. I was also annoyed at the continual push to auction which drove me crazy. For sale or nothing. I was in no hurry at all which I suppose was a bonus. I hate auctions and they are expensive and too hit and miss. I had given the souse a fresh painting inside and out and had all the maintenance overhauled in the outside and inside, de-cluttered and had a a thorough spring clean before I even put it on the market. I decided to do it myself with the advertising and the showings. Had the flag for showings when it was convenient for me, didn't have to hide my pets and go over the top on false decorating. Sold in no time and all. I actually found this organisation by stumbling on it after a bit of a search. I let go all the real estate agents and Used Buy My Place and within a very short time, had the right buyer and had it sold and settled in no time at all and both the buyer and myself were more than satisfied. I used the conventional legal and conveyance done by my solicitor though and wouldn't do that kind of thing anywhere else. I have no regrets only perhaps that I had the dosh to keep it in my ownership before moving on to new fields. Keep your house clean and tidy along with your yard or outside area. . I put everything away and had everything in its place. A few other "my secret" touches and it was far less stressful and this is the way I would go into the future without hesitation. Good luck everyone!!
best way to sell your house
"10/10. All the buyer's were very happy it was a private sale by the owner and not an agent. Nobody knows your house better than you and to market it your self i highly recommend buyMyplace website for selling your own property you will save thousands in commission."

Not very helpful at all
I found it difficult to get hold of customer service to help with questions, when calling the 1300 number, it would ring out and you'd be forced to leave a message but no call back. I requested a contract of sale form but they wouldn't send it to me because I'm not a conveyancing client? Just poor. Discount fees comes with discount service!
