Better results than listing with a Real Estate Agent
This service is truly wonderful and empowers you to do the marketing and sale or rental transactions. It does require a bit of effort but in my opinion easier and less frustrating than dealing with real estate agents who let you down on price and marketing. I have sold and rented many properties and the service from Property Now is better than going it alone or trusting a real estate agent.
Prospective buyers seem to like dealing with the home owner directly.
Your camera and the tools on the photo app make for great photos, Property Now give you tips. Save on fees and time waiting for the Real Estate agency to take them.
All the forms you need are there and you have the back up of your settlement agent (in WA) or your property lawyer for checking the legal stuff.
Property Now has great support after you pay the money, a wealth of info and responsive to questions plus Andrew the director takes the time to speak to you if you wish. They are really considerate in the way they allow a pause in Sales and a 30 day resumption in leasing in case it falls through.
Think twice before trusting your keys to a real estate agent. When I went to pick up my keys once they were in an open basket with other sets on the reception desk! Whilst there may be many real estate agents who are trustworthy and care about their clients the structure of paying high commission on a sale and not on a pleasing result works against you receiving value for money or even a sale as many agents latch onto buyers at home opens and try to show them other houses...your competition for a sale.
I've used PropertyNow twice to sell our properties. Easy to manage listing online. All paperwork is available to use and any questions were answered straight away. Will definitely use again.
This ‘do it your self site’ is really easy to use, I invested in a large photo board and a professional photographer and the inquiries started very quickly.
Good Luck selling!
Second time I have used property now to lease my investment property. Easy to use site, great support team offering advice along the way. I will use again and would recommend.
Perfect for self-managed property rentals!
First time self-managing our property and found PropertyNow an excellent platform for advertising on the commonly viewed rental websites.
Questions answered promptly and professionally.
I will definitely use this service again when it comes time to find a new tenant.
Sold and saved heaps.
This was easily the best way to sell a property, we got great advice from the support staff and saved approximately $15-18,000, and the open house was very personal, you have very little to loose by trying and a lot to gain when successful.
Very easy to use and the online support is great and very quick to respond!
I have used Property now twice to rent my house and have had a great experience both times. Any time I had a query my questions were responded to very quickly and resolved straight away. Will definitely use again and have recently recommended to a friend.
Property Now works!
I had my house on the market for just over 3 months. During that time I had plenty of home opens to attract clients. The whole process is easy to set up and use. Property Now are very helpful if you have queries. I would recommend Property Now. I am very happy that I gave it a go and sold my house myself saving thousands in fees.
100% Perfect Way To Sell Your Home
This service was recommended to me by a friend, which he had previously sold using Property Now. I was extremely happy with Andrew and the team at Property Now they were there to answer any queries I had, and also the website was easy for me to navigate as I am not computer literate at all.
The only reason it has taken so long to sell is there were four of us in the chain all waiting to sell, but it finally all happened without a hitch, and I add, I sold at full asking price considerably more than my three agents valuations.
I would most definitely recommend this service to anyone wanting to sell their home, and as I change my residence every two to three years, I will be contacting Property Now again. A BIG THANK YOU TO ANDREW AND THE TEAM
property sold within weeks
My property was on the market for over 12 months with 2 agents. I decided to sell it privately with property now and it sold within 6 weeks. I would absolutely recommend using property now to sell your home.
Property Now was the perfect platform to sell my first property.
Property Now was easy, professional and helpful. I’m so thrilled to have sold it myself. I can strongly recommend Property Now. They addressed any questions I had quickly and the ad looked great in the realestate listings as did the sign on my land. Thank you Property Now!
Didn't have much need to contact staff because had no problems. Have tried advertising indepedently in the past but "they" make it very expensive or impossible now, so the best part for us was the very cheap advertising on all the major sites over a long time (about 8 months). Besides, since you do all the preparation for inspections why pay an agent to walk through the prospective purchasers (as long as you have nothing to hide)? Conversely, when I'm on the other side, as a purchaser I would much rather talk and deal direct with the owner rather than an agent.
Helpful & responsive when you have an enquiry or need assistance
Fabulous website, easy to navigate, even if you’re inexperienced. Staff have a ‘can do’ attitude, and are a pleasure to deal with. Although there are cheaper alternatives when advertising property for sale or rent, it’s definitely worth paying a bit more for the outstanding service that Property Now consistently delivers. More than happy to recommend this highly ethical & honest company, who have a well calibrated ‘moral compass’ so regrettably missing in many businesses today.
Don't be afraid to sell yourself
Selling by yourself is work. Bare in mind you have to be available and prepared to hold open homes / private visits, emails or phone calls. Cost us 795$ with the absolute basic package and It saved us approx 13,000$ (real estate agent cost) on a 340,000$ sale.
The website gives you all the information you need.
You are linked up with realestate.com and other major real estate platforms. The updates to your ads are shown after 5 minutes.
You do receive calls and emails at any point you need it.
The office receives phone calls of inquiries and they relay them to you straight away.
- It's difficult to upload pictures. They need to be a specific size which is quiet medium/low resolution. Also you will need to download a specific software for Mac (I did use iresize). Took me several attempts to successfully upload my pictures as the website is quiet temperamental with the size and format of your pics.
(My ad details took one hour to complete, and it took me almost double the time to upload my pictures)
- The contract of sale or offer which propertynow offered on the website wasn't legally binding. So we would suggest speak about obtaining a contract of sale with your solicitor.
Having said all of this we would definitely recommend selling yourself with propertynow if you live in or close to the property you are selling.
Another comment we read that we agreed on : "The buyers commented they preferred dealing with the seller directly and we also preferred dealing with the buyer directly."
Best decision we made in using PropertyNow. Staff were helpful in all my enquiries. Was slow in the beginning with potential buyers but gradually picked up after period of time. Signage definitely helped. Would definitely use PropertyNow again in the future
Best decision we made
Selling via PropertyNow was the best decision we made, the site was easy to use and when we asked for assistance they were quick to respond and helpful.
The buyers commented they preferred dealing with the seller directly and we also preferred dealing with the buyer directly.
Highly recommend PropertyNow.
Great to be in charge and conduct inspections one on one with the potential buyers . Property Now were very helpful and organised . Would use them next time if the need arises
Easy as Pie and Works!
Our property sold within 10 days of listing at the price we wanted. Property Now were friendly, helpful and efficient. We would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone.
Having never rented out a place privately before, and being hesitant to do so, would have to say I do it again without hesitation. Was so simple, and the support team-second to none. So quick with responses, a+ service. Huge thank you for making this so simple, easy to navigate around and affordable. Look forward to doing again with our next property. Your Superstars! Thank You.
Disappointing - no sale after two months and no responses at all after upgrading to the Feature ad on realestate.com.au
I decided to try selling via PropertyNow, starting with a standard ad for just over a month. Responses were fairly low for the opens I did every weekend for the first 5 weeks (sometimes on both Saturday and Sunday), so decided to pay extra for an upgrade.
The problem is that upgrading to the Premier ad is horrendously expensive via PropertyNow - almost 3 times that suggested by other real estate agents as their charge for a Premier listing. I incorrectly thought that paying for the more reasonably priced Feature ad upgrade might increase interest, however in just under a month - not even one show up to opens with the Feature ad running, so a total waste of $871.
I found that over 1/3 of the relatively small number of inquiries I received were from agents chasing a listing, and in general they all suggested that a Premier ad was the way to go.
I did quiz the agents who made contact with me on the valuation they would recommend for our property, and without exception I was told our price point was spot on (generally giving a range from slightly lower to a more favorable higher top end). Again without exception the agents were impressed with the quality of the property and professional photography, suggesting that interest and sales figures for Wakerley have been higher than in many other areas. Consequently I am at a loss to understand the poor response to my listing via PropertyNow although demand in the area is quite high. I suspect that the agents are correct in suggesting the Premier ad was the missing factor so have now deleted my PropertyNow listing and am going with a Premier listing elsewhere.
