My testimonial begins with a similar theme as I imagine a multitude of other home sellers. I was fed up to the back teeth with real estate agents.
So my instincts drew me to the inevitable – why not sell my home myself? I did the research on for sale by owner companies. I chose a relatively new agency, Total Clarity Realty, who specialise in and only service Queenslanders.
My first positive reaction was when Geoff & Nicola (Total Clarity Realty’s owners) furnished me with some helpful information about my suburb, Capalaba. Stuff like median house price movement, average days on the market, vendor discount, average annual growth, number’s sold. This initial information was very helpful regarding my confidence in being able to sell my home privately and at the best price.
Every aspect from then on was service, service, service! From the initial loading of my photographs and property description (they even reworded this) to regular newsletters, enquiry alerts, weekly campaign reports to my very professional sign with my mobile number on it.
My home sold (I had two contracts) in three weeks for a very good price and I saved nearly $20,000 in commission and marketing costs by selling through Total Clarity Realty and not a traditional commissioned agent. Total Clarity Realty even donated $25 to a charity of my choice that they support.
So to all Queenslanders who are looking to sell their home privately, I can overwhelmingly recommend Total Clarity Realty.
