- In addition to saving in commission, the owners save in expensive advertising campaigns

We offer the 'Exact' Same advertising opportunities as Agents, without the huge commission
Selling property traditionally with a Real Estate agent will usually result in a 6 to 12 week marketing campaign, consisting of online advertising, listing the property on major real estate websites like realestate.com.au & domain.com.au.
What’s great about selling privately with Sale By Home Owner, is you have access to the 'exact' same advertising opportunities as traditional real estate agents, except you can now hold your inspections or Open Homes whenever you like, and there's no commission to be paid at the end of the sale.
Another great thing about Selling your House Privately is you have the freedom to sell your property according to your schedule. When it comes to Open for Inspections, you may choose to host a 1 hour or 3 hour open home during the Peek inspection hours on Weekends, to give your buyer more of a chance to inspect the property. This is opposed to the normal 15 to 30 minute window agents will set aside for your property on the weekend.
Considering you have the exact same advertising opportunities as Traditional agents, it’s no surprise that the average time it takes to sell a property privately matches the Real Estate industry average of 60 to 90 days.

How much is your time really worth to you - Lets break it down for you below...
For example, let’s say your home is worth $700,000. With the Australian average commission rate being 2.9%, that means fees of approximately $20,300.
Everyone is different, however, on average, it may take the everyday person 12 hours of their time in total to sell their house privately. That includes the listing process, photos, inspections, negotiating & settlement of the home. 12 hours of your time, for a commission of $20,300 works out to be $1,690 per hour! - How many times in your life will you ever be afforded the opportunity to be paid $1,690 per hour??
Although there is a small amount of work involved, the rewards for your efforts are incredibly high. Selling your home privately is just a smart financial decision for any property owner.
