Choosing an estate agent is such an important task, but it can feel like you're choosing the best of a bad bunch (they don't exactly have the best reputation). And although most estate agents are people too and really are trying to do the best job they can, wouldn't you want to work with one that's forward thinking and gets today's market? More than 67% of people surf the net with their phones, so why not let them submit offers for your house with their phone too?
Increase the sale price potential of your property
Market Buy adds transparency to the offer process, showing potential buyers how many people they're competing with and exactly how much has been offered at any point in time. It develops trust, they can submit offers no matter what else they're doing and all with just the click of a button (the process could even be called fun)! This unique combination means buyers are more comfortable offering as much as they can and often more than they would through more traditional methods.
You know where you stand
Estate agents have a lot on their plate and the constant juggle between capturing new leads and keeping sellers updated on the progress of their sale and everything in between is a huge challenge - but why should that be your problem? Once your agent advises you to use Market Buy to manage the offers coming in, you can securely login whenever you want and watch the offers come in in real-time. If you don't want to login frequently, you'll also get an email every time something happens, such as a new offer has been submitted - you always know what's happening!
You have options
Market Buy is "The Online Offer Management System" and is a tool used by estate agents to manage offers coming through, it does not replace your agent. So your agent will advise you when it's the right time to add your property to Market Buy which means you don't have to make big decisions at the start. Once your agent builds enough interest in your property, you're good to go!
How it works...
- When a property has enough interest, your agent will advise you to activate a Market Buy page
- They will set it all up for you and add you as the vendor so you can securely login and see what's happening
- Interested buyers submit their offers, pushing the price higher and higher
- You get an email every time a new offer is placed and you can login at any time (from your phone, tablet or desktop) to watch the offers come through in real time
- Once the sale is over, everyone is notified by email of the outcome and you've sold your property for the best price possible!
When you're looking to buy a house or property, you get caught in this game of submitting offers and being told there's 10 other people interested and you better go higher to even have a chance. But you never really know if what you're being told is a sales tactic or if you have in fact chosen the most popular house in the country!
Market Buy adds a layer of transparency to the process:
- Only people legitimately interested in a property will be given a secure login
- Each potential buyer has to pay a deposit of $1,000 (refundable at the end if they don't have the winning offer), so you know anyone submitting offers is as serious as you are
- Once you login, you can see a history of genuine offers and place your own when you're ready and happy to do so
- It's completely anonymous to the other potential buyers (but the agents know who everyone is)
Let's hope your dream home is being sold with the help of Market Buy!
