COVID-19 and how we can help you sell your property

Wednesday, 17th April, 2019 // Covid-19 Updates


To help stop the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Australian Government has issued a number of important changes that impact the way we can help you during the foreseeable future.

With new social distancing measures in place, it’s important to understand what these changes mean if you are thinking of selling your property. At Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate it is business as usual and we are still operating with the same level of care, expertise and professionalism that you have come to know and expect.

So what do these changes entail and how can we help you during this time?

Virtual property appraisals
More and more people own smartphones which enable us to communicate seamlessly with each other through a range of online applications. Some of these applications are already built into our phones. Therefore, it is easy for us to meet with you over video call to discuss your property and how we can help you achieve your property goals.

Online auctions
While traditional on-site and in-room auctions are currently not permitted, we are able to auction your property online via live stream. This alleviates the common stress of rushing to prepare and clean your property on the morning of the auction and enables bidders a more comfortable environment to participate and bid remotely. Prospective buyers are able to watch, register, bid, buy and exchange during the live auction.

Private treaty / private sale negotiating
Our agents are expert negotiators and there are no changes that affect the way we can sell your property by private treaty. In fact, sometimes this can be the best approach depending on your circumstance and property. Your Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate agent will guide you on what strategy would be best to achieve the result you are after.

Documents can be signed online
We have a range of online services available to ensure legal documents can be easily signed, dated and returned without having to worry about printing, scanning and posting. These digital documents make it easy and simple to fill out and sign agreements and forms online, instantly returning to the sender once complete.

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate are adapting to change and we are well equipped to help you with all of your property needs during this time. Whether you are a first-time seller or a property mogul, we’ll be delighted to help you in selling your property.
