According to The Australian Financial Review, another agent-free residential platform, MiSale, has launched in NSW and Victoria following its success in Queensland this year.
MiSale calls the model "an upfront fee Real Estate Agent". For a one-off fee of $2999 vendors get a valuation report, an agent inspection, and full sale service including photography, advertising, negotiations and help with contracts of sale and conveyancing.
For others who want to use the site for advertising without a real-life agent, listing is free.
The group said since launching in Queensland this year, the platform has facilitated close to $12 million in sales and saved users $293,000 in commissions.
"We are facilitating the conversation between seller and buyer with our easy-to-use messaging platform that we believe is miles in front of our competitors," co-founder Ewen Malcolm said.
The platform also offers selected services such as solicitors and mortgage brokers, accessible on the platform.
