Homepass, the system used by Australia’s Domain.com.au portal to allow potential buyers to check in to home inspections, has surpassed one million visitors.
Property seekers can pre-register for an inspection via the Domain app and allows them to check-in prior to arriving at an open home. Agents benefit by capturing a wealth of information about potential buyers before they have even seen a property.
The one millionth check-in occurred in the leafy Sydney suburb of Bonnet Bay at a property managed by Jarrod Dwyer, from listing agent McGrath Sylvania Waters. He said his agency adopted Homepass to provide the best open for inspection experience possible for house-hunters as they can jump the queue when they arrive.
“You spend less time writing down names and more time actually talking to buyers face-to-face as they come through the home,” he said.
“It helps you remember people’s names much better and allows you to build rapport with clients.
“It makes us look more professional. One lady that came through said, ‘That’s McGrath for you’.”
The Bonnet Bay property was sold at auction for $300,000 over reserve.
The newest version of the tech, Homepass 3.0, offers agents the ability to ‘star’ any property to receive real time notifications about the listing as well as improved check-in process.
