One of Australia’s leading online commission-free real estate companies buyMyplace, has extended its offering to include a full service package for vendors who don’t have time to sell their property.
The full service offering will initially launch in Melbourne and extend on the company’s DIY sale package. Costing $4595, the service provides all the standard services provided by a traditional real estate agent, such as property appraisals, open for inspections, buyer follow up and price negotiation as well as creation of property listings on the major property portals.
Last week buyMyPlace announced that its revenue grew 147 per cent on prior corresponding period (PCP) and 18 per cent on the prior quarter continuing its strong growth.
The company’s CEO Paul Heath said it would use the recent revenue increase to expand its service offering.
“During our capital raising last month, we flagged we would use some of those additional funds to invest in ‘areas of strategic interest’ and the launch of buyMyPlace Full Service is the first such investment that we are announcing,” Heath said.
“Although buyMyplace has achieved rapid growth since our ASX listing last March, based on expanding our marketing and DIY packages for vendors, some vendors may not have the time to manage their own property sale or live in a different location to the property they wish to sell. There is a huge demand for vendors to save the commission and fees charged b y the traditional real estate agent model and some vendors prefer more service and help to sell their property,” he says.
The full service package will launch in Melbourne and expand into other regional centres through 2017.
