As the spring property selling season gets underway home hunters have the advantage of two new tools that give them an edge on the competition.
Make an Offer and Property ReView have been launched exclusively on realestateview.com.au.
Make an Offer is a digital tool that allows buyers to put in an offer directly to a real estate agent on the property listing site.
Realestateview.com.au CEO Toby Balazs said the launch timing came at a key time.
"In this hot market, the Make an Offer solution has been designed to make the experience of submitting an offer for your dream home easier for property seekers and to assist agents in receiving qualified buyer leads," says realestateview.com.au CEO Toby Balazs.
The Make an Offer digital tool is easy to use and is available on private treaty and expression of interest listings on realestateview.com.au.
It allows property seekers to place a non-binding offer directly through realestateview.com.au to the agent.
The information it gathers includes the offer price, preferred settlement period, conditions and information on the potential buyer's legal representative and finance before receiving third party ID verification.
Realestateview.com.au has partnered with Propps, the innovation and investment partner of ANZ Banking Group, on Make an Offer.
"Through this partnership we can help agents obtain a whole new level of very qualified buyer interest by tapping into the power and reach of realestateview.com.au's large scale audience," said Propps Founder & CEO Daniel Bignold.
Buyers can also now access extensive and exclusive new information on a property they are interested in through realestateview.com.au Property ReView.
Combining its own rich data sources with data from CoreLogic, Good Schools, Archistar and the ABS, realestateview.com.au has packaged up a compelling address level document that potential buyers can access by providing their personal information on the property listing page.
The document is emailed to the prospective buyer and their information is passed on to the selling agent as a qualified lead.
"Buyers can now easily access all sorts of information on their potential new property; from suburb trends to the demography of the area to what schools are nearby and planning information: Property ReView is a fantastic single source for any buyer," Mr Balazs said.
"Importantly it also provides our agent partners with more qualified leads. Requesting Property ReView shows clear and genuine interest in the property and as such the leads are from property seekers who are more likely to be in the active phase of their buying journey."
Mr Balazs said that these new features further strengthen realestateview.com.au's position as it continues its expansion into regional centres since partnering up with Antony Catalano's ACM.
"Our partnership with ACM has put us in a very strong position as we look to aggressively grow from our traditional metro heartland into the regions," Mr Balazs said.
"The impact of COVID has shown that more and more Australians are wanting to move to the regions and ACM provides us with unparalleled audiences, marketing platforms and sales force across their network.
"We believe that our new offerings will be warmly received across the market and supported by our agent partners as buyers seek to get ahead of the pack." said Mr Balazs.
