PocketList® acts as a platform to connect Kiwi home buyers & sellers in a place we call the off-market (private sale). By creating this magic, and to be able to continue our no upfront cost model we charge a 0.5% success fee upon a successful unconditional offer on your home.
For the average Auckland home that is worth $1M, we can save you up to $25,000 in commission from what the large real estate agencies would charge. We feel the current home buying & selling model is outdated – with the right marketing tools and search function, we are able to connect Kiwis to their next dream home faster and more efficiently than ever before.
Now, how about that new boat?
Once you agree on a price with a buyer through our ‘Make an Offer’ form. We will introduce you to one of our partner Solicitors to complete the Sale & Purchase agreement. Due to the volume of homes we sell, we have managed to secure you the best lawyers at very competitive rates charged by the Solicitor directly.
If you have your own Solicitor, that’s fine – PocketList® will still charge you a 0.5% success fee for connecting your home with a successful buyer.
It’s not uncommon to hear of home owners searching for over 12-18 months to find their next dream home, with many biting the bullet and stepping into the unknown by selling their house first, and hoping that their dream home comes up before they have to start renting. A lack of quality listings slows down the ‘Mover Market’. Having your home listed on PocketList®, increases the number of homes prospective buyers can search for in the New Zealand market. This inflates the number of homes on the market, giving the movers market more room to find their next dream home. We believe that any home would be for sale at the right price, you just need to find a suitable buyer. PocketList® exists to create that magic, by connecting sellers to buyers searching for their dream home.
This is an issue for many home owners, particularly when they don’t know what price their property will fetch. Bridging finance can be crippling to service and a barrier to many buyers/sellers. By listing on PocketList®, you can line up potential buyers whilst you are also searching the off-market and on-market, reducing the need for bridging finance or conditional terms that are likely ignored by vendors.
The beauty of PocketList®, is that any home owner can signal a price they would move in an instance if they could achieve. By listing on PocketList, home owners get their unique home in-front of many more buyers eyes than a 4 week campaign that only a select pool of buyers are ready to ‘bid’ on your home. More buyers = Higher likelihood of coming to an agreement at your desired price.
By listing on PocketList®, your house stays off the register as it is a private / passive listing. Effectively removing a bargaining chip many buyers use for homes that have been on the market longer than their initial campaign and using the sunk costs associated with marketing the property to their advantage.
That’s rights, list for free on our platform as a passive listing. Upgrade your listing anytime if you want your home advertised on TradeMe Property, Professional Photography, Floor Plans, or Signage – Packages starting from as low as $899.
The average $1M home sold through the major real estate agencies will cost you around $4-6K in upfront marketing costs + $30,000 in commission. PocketList’s listings have no upfront costs, and we only charge a 0.5% ‘success fee’ upon receiving an unconditional offer which our partner solicitors will then draw up the S&P Agreement.
