Selling your family home can be a stressful and expensive time, especially when you have kids to care for, work to do and all the other ins and outs of being a mum to deal with too.
If you’re thinking of selling, Purplebricks is a new, full-service real estate agency that has launched in Australia and aims to give Perth families a fairer, more transparent and generally more affordable way to sell their home.
The Perth real estate market is currently a buyer’s haven, meaning sellers and their agents have to work harder than ever to get every dollar their home is worth. The last thing you need to worry about is hidden real estate and marketing fees or huge realtor commissions.
Purplebricks is a holistic real estate experience that offers sellers a highly competitive flat rate of $4,500 as opposed to commission, and combines the knowledge of their Local Property Experts with technology to get your property sold.
Since launching six months ago, Purplebricks has exchanged or settled over 435 residential properties through auction and private sales and has saved sellers an estimated $5 million in fees, with hundreds of homeowners now choosing Purplebricks above traditional realtors.
Compared with the traditional real estate model where sellers pay separate commission and marketing costs, the Purplebricks flat fee model could save Perth residents an estimated $9,330 per sale in combined commission and marketing costs, translating to valuable savings for homeowners. For example, estimated commission savings through Purplebricks across Perth include the below:
That’s a lot of money that could be spent on something else for your home or lifestyle. But how is it different to the usual real estate process? You’ll get all the perks of a traditional realtor service, including a free property appraisal and a dedicated Local Property Expert from start to sale, but you’ll also have added benefits, such as 24/7 access to support, the opportunity to review your home’s online advertising before it goes live, instant access to buyer feedback and viewing information and of course, no hidden costs.
Everything is included in the flat-rate fee, from the ‘For Sale’ board to the advertising photography and online listings on Australia’s best real estate websites, plus floor plans and access to ongoing support.
For Perth homes that go to auction, a small additional fee of $1,000 (including GST) is charged on top of the $4,500 flat fee to cover the cost of an auctioneer and all private viewings and open homes carried out by the Local Property Expert.
Your Local Property Expert is just that – an expert in the local market who can provide an accurate appraisal and negotiate the top rate for your home. You aren’t, however, tied into a lucrative contract that could leave you stuck with an agent who simply can’t sell your home. Purplebricks even has a dedicated Sales Support team to guide you though the conveyance process once you receive that all-important offer.
Purplebricks can save sellers thousands in real estate fees and is offering exceptional value in a fiercely competitive Perth real estate market.
Forget the traditional seller-real estate relationship – Purplebricks is the revolutionary way to sell your home for less with no hidden costs, knowledgeable local agents, added transparency and is simply a better way to do business.
