10 Reasons To Use For Sale For Lease
1. The Pulling Power Of The Internet
Australians spend more time weekly accessing the internet than any other kind of media*, and this high level of usage has positive applications for the property market, with more people using the internet to find property than any other medium**. The benefits of the internet are many, especially when compared to print media. The internet is convenient, easily accessible, and easily updated in real time.
The graph below represents the origin of real estate agent leads, that is, where people have seen a property before they approached the real estate agent to enquire about it. As you can see, up to 55% of these leads come from the internet, further highlighting the importance of getting good exposure for your property online.
2. The Pulling Power Of Realestate.Com.Au
As a private advertiser without a real estate agent’s licence, you cannot advertise on realestate.com.au. That’s where we come in with our real estate agent’s licence: we provide you with access to Australia’s major property website which has more unique visitors than 19 of its closest competitors combined***, and will give your property the exposure it needs. Realestate.com.au is by far Australia’s most dominant real estate web site. This is also applicable to realcommercial.com.au and realbusinesses.com.au.
3. No Commission Fees
Unlike traditional real estate agents, we don’t charge any commission fees – ever! We offer a number of different plans suited to different budgets, all without commission fees. Choose between our Until Sold package which consists of a one-off listing fee, or our Upfront package which includes a smaller listing fee and recurring monthly payments until your property is sold, leased or withdrawn. Quarterly business packages are available, too.
4. Low Prices
Not only do we not charge commission fees, but the fact that we let our clients conduct their own Open For Inspection allows us to offer great package prices for our services. Our prices start from as little as $399 plus $99 per month, payable in advance, to list your residential property for sale or $149 plus $99 per month, payable in advance, to list your residential property for lease.
5. Money Back Guarantee
If you have not been successful in selling your property yourself, or if you decide that selling your home yourself is not for you, we can refer you to a full service real estate agent and refund your upfront fee upon successful sale of your property. See our money back guarantee page for further details.

7. Customer Service Support
