Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au with ReDIY.
There are many sites out there that offer many different features. The oldest one, to our knowledge, was created in 2006, so it has been around for a while. These are third party sites, which give you access to the major Real estate Sites.
Why do you need a third party Site?
Firstly, Realestate.com.au does not permit Private Sellers to access their site directly. Not at all. They only allow approved companies, with subscriptions to place advertisements on their site. Therefore, you need a third party, that has a subscription with them. ReDIY, is not only an approved subscriber, we are an approved bulk uploader with them. Let me explain this. Our site has been built with an XML feed so that the information entered into our site, feeds to all the other sites. Most of our competitor sites, do not have this feed. Therefore, they have to subscribe to another third party bulk uploader. This means you are engaging a third party who engages a third party. Their support staff needs to load your advertisement for you. Time delays and room for errors. With ReDIY, you enter your property details, advertising text, and upload photos and it will take effect on all sites straight away. This allows you to place your advertisement, with ReDIY at any time of the day or night.
Secondly, although Domain does allow you to directly access their site, their fees are high. 8 weeks - $660, 12 weeks - $770 This means that if not sold in the selected period, you pay again. Not with ReDIY, you only pay a one-off fee and your advertisement remains on all sites until sold.
With ReDIY, all sites, one cost - until sold.
We not only advertise your property on Realestate and Domain.com.au, it is advertised on allhomes, homely, onthehouse, property, homehound, thehomepage and squizz. All for the one, low price. Allhomes is a well-visited site, by buyers of property in Canberra and the ACT. Newspaper advertising is almost obsolete. Funnily enough, Newscorp has the majority interest in Realestate and Fairfax started Domain.
The 2 leading sites, without question are Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au.
To have your property listed on these sites and to save money, you do need a third party, like ReDIY. We understand that you want to Sell privately - Do It Yourself, that is why Real Estate Do it Yourself (ReDIY.com.au) is ready to assist you. We do not want to sell your home, or charge a commission. We are here to give you access to advertise on the major sites, where all Agents advertise and where all Buyers are looking for a property.
To get your property sold privately, it does need to be on the major Real Estate Sites. Now you just need to decide who to use to get it listed. When making a decision as to what site to use, do not make your decision purely based on price. Be sure to understand what each has to offer. You will find many different features and the available access to many different sites. At ReDIY, we have looked at what other sites offer and we have gone the extra mile to add features and have worked out ways to keep our price as low as possible. It is really the best site for a DIY Seller to advertise their property for sale.
