SELLING PRIVATELY

What does 'For Sale by Owner' or 'FSBO' mean?

The process of selling your own home without a realestate agent is known as ‘For Sale by Owner’ or ‘FSBO’ for short. It is becoming increasingly popular with the advent of plenty of ‘Do it Yourself’ sites which offer sellers access to realestate.com.au.

Why is it Important to Choose a WA site?

There are plenty of DIY sites based on the East coast. We believe that you are better off using a local company like Direct Move. The main reason is realestate.com. does not allow private sellers to advertise their contact details directly on their site. Alot of companies will use a central messaging service so your buyers don’t get to speak to real people and then once they get given your details they have probably moved on. We only display our mobile numbers and always answer the phone. Your buyers are then sent a message with your contact information.

If I'm selling privately, what’s included in the selling fee?

The Ultimate Private Sale Kit includes a Standard listing on realestate.com.au, plus a bonus first 30 days upgraded to a Feature listing on realestate.com.au. This means your listing will receive double the amount of views in the crucial first month of advertising. You will also appear on 5+ other property portals including List4Free.com.au. You will have 24/7 access to your own account where you can update home open times etc. Access to property professionals 7 days a week.

What does the 30 day feature property listing on realestate.com mean?

A feature property listing sits above a standard listing and attracts twice as many views as a standard listing. One 30 day upgrade to a feature listing is included in your fee. Extra 30 day feature upgrades can be added, please talk to your Direct Move agent regarding costs.

What happens after the 30 days Feature ends?

After the Feature listing has ended your property will revert to a Standard listing until sold/withdrawn

SELLING WITH AN AGENT

What does the Agent Assisted service mean?

We were the pioneers of the Agency Assisted Sale about 4 years ago in WA. This service allows you to engage an agent to market the property, liaise with potential buyers and negotiate and write up the contract. By conducting your own property inspections you are saving on paying big agency commission. We only take a part payment upon the listing of your home and the balance is only payable upon successful settlement of the property. This service includes your own dedicated agent, full marketing and advertising, professional photos and sign board.

Do I have to pay your fee even if the property doesn't sell?

No. Our fee is taken in 2 parts. The upfront part covers all of the upfront costs, the balance of the fee is only payable upon successful settlement.

What does the 30 day feature property listing on realestate.com mean?

A feature property listing sits above a standard listing and attracts twice as many views as a standard listing. One 30 day upgrade to a feature listing is included in your fee. Extra 30 day feature upgrades can be added, please talk to your Direct Move agent regarding costs.

What happens after the 30 days Feature ends?

After the Feature listing has ended your property will revert to a Standard listing until sold/withdrawn

Will you provide Support When It Comes To Negotiating The Sales Price?

We are engaged as your agent and handle all negotiations on your behalf. As you will be interacting directly with buyers you are free to discuss price with them, however, your Direct Move agent will be best placed to negotiate on your behalf.

Is a ‘For Sale’ Sign Included In Our Fee?

A standard 1200mmx900mm  ‘For Sale’ sign is included in our fee. If you are interested in upgrading to a photo board or larger sign please ask your Direct Move agent who can provide you with a quote.

GENERAL

How do I Prepare my House For Sale?

There are a number of simple steps every homeowner needs to take in order to make the best impression when potential buyers come to view their property.  Your Direct Move Agent will be happy to give you some guidance on how you can make your home look its best.

Why do I Need a For Sale Sign?

It is clearly your decision on whether you want a sign or not. Direct Move highly recommends a For Sale sign as it is still one of the most effective means of attracting local buyers. Think of this as your 24 hour sales assistant. If you don’t put the For Sale sign up you will almost certainly miss out on potential buyers.

Do I Have to do Home Opens?

No, you are in control of who views your property and when. Naturally, if you are serious about selling you will accommodate appointments whenever your schedule allows. If you are time poor throughout the week and would like to schedule a time on any given day, not just a weekend day, then having a time slot on a given day may prove to be beneficial for you.
