Sell your property with Sale Ezy
What is Sale Ezy?
Sale Ezy is not a real estate agent, it is a website agents can use to auction and sell a home, business or farm online. It enables you to reach more buyers and make your auction more accessible. You simply fill in our easy online listing form, promote the property and watch as the clock counts down throughout your fully-automated and seamless online auction!
How much does it cost?
Sale Ezy offers agents great subscription packages as well as single auctions. To find out more, contact our friendly team on 1300 662 013 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
How much support do I get?
Every single agency is allocated a dedicated support partner from Sale Ezy. This experienced and friendly person can help you navigate through your auction, assist your bidders with registration, review your listing and offer insights into boosting engagement with the property.
Why use it?
There are so many benefits to using Sale Ezy. The unique progressive style of our auctions means you can consider, accept and decline offers from day one when the listing goes live. You can sell the property during the Best Offer phase, or simply use it as a period to test the market and inform the pricing strategy you present to the property owner.
You have complete control of the auction specifications (time, reserve, minimum bid), and the ability to manage the auction from anywhere, at any time. Your listing will appeal to more bidders on a global scale, by enabling them to bid from home, the office, the sporting field or their holiday in Europe!
Our auctions all take place completely online, meaning all admin tasks (bid records, bid logs etc) are auto-generated for you, decreasing your admin requirements. You don't have to worry about setting up cameras and equipment to stream from a live site, or bidders whose internet access doesn't support streamed video. You can forget concerns about projecting a live auction with only a few bidders in the crowd, or a big crowd that is completely unresponsive! Sale Ezy helps you harness the power of auction, while also protecting your brand and reputation as effective sales people and auctioneers.

We don't believe in 'set-and-forget' clients, our team will be there for you from the minute you list, to the sale of the property, whenever you need us. We're not pushy or salesy, so feel free to give us a call on 1300 662 013 to chat about what Sale Ezy is, how it works and how it can benefit you.
How it works
Sale Ezy offers a unique progressive auction format.
From day one of the listing going live, your auction can start with a slower, elongated best offer period that enables registered bidders to make private bids (that can be accepted to complete the sale), in the lead up to the the faster final call stage of the auction.
During final call, the clock counts down and bidders compete to submit public bids within a limited time frame, aiming to achieve the highest bid at the end of the final call period. Properties not sold during final call will transition back to best offer for more bidding.
Your property can sell during any of the three auction segments.
1. Browse properties
Finding your perfect property (or a whole list of them!) is easy. Just enter your search criteria into the homepage and browse through the list of properties that match your specifications.
2. Sign up for your free My Sale Ezy profile
Sign up for a free account so you can bookmark and monitor properties, set up email property alerts for new listings of interest, arrange private inspections using the Q and A and register for open houses. Click the ‘sign up’ button to register.
3. List a property
If you are looking to sell or you're an agent selling on behalf of a client, arrange to obtain the contract for sale from the property owner's solicitor and then click on 'list my property' under 'sell.' Simply fill in the listing form with all the required details about the property, the property owner and their solicitor. Select the final call and first call start dates, best offer dates and your minimum bid and reserve price and click submit. We'll verify the ID of the property owner in real-time and the property can be on display within minutes. You will need to hold at least two open houses before your auction. Need help? Just ask our team.
4. Find suppliers
Need a photographer? A solicitor? A building report? A valuer? Check out our supplier's page to find the perfect people to form your property sales team. Know of a good supplier? Suggest them to us, or if they’re already on our page, give them a star rating so other people know they are reliable.
5. Start your auction
Your property marketing should be in place for at least four weeks before the final call segment of your auction begins.
Sale Ezy offers a three part, progressive auction. You can begin with an elongated, slower auction period, called best offer, during your promotional period; transition into the momentous final call segment, and then back into best offer if required. The property can sell during any one of the three auction segments.
6. Register to bid
So you want to buy a property? Take a picture of your ID, and click the 'register to bid' button on the page of the property you are interested in. Fill in the registration form and we will run a real-time third-party ID validation in seconds, and send an automated ID validation email to the listing agent so you can be approved to bid. Once they confirm your ID, you can start bidding straight away.
Bidders will be asked to make a nominal $5 payment — this small fee just allows us to further verify your ID and card and protects you and our property owners.
7. Bidding is easy
You will have up to three opportunities to bid on a property. During best offer, your bids, under auction conditions, will be sent straight to the auctioneer and vendor for consideration. When you submit a bid, the time and date and your bid number appear on screen for all other bidders to see, but the bid amount is not published.
If the vendor and auctioneer accept the bid, the hammer falls and the property is yours. If they don't accept within 24 hours, the bid will automatically be withdrawn on your behalf; this protects you and ensures you are only accountable for a best offer bid for 24 hours.
If the property doesn't sell during best offer, it will transition into the final call segment of the auction. During final call, you will have around an hour (recommended by Sale Ezy) to submit competitive bids, published for all to see (without your personal details), as the clock counts down.
Once the count down is complete, 1st, 2nd and 3rd call will proceed, each with 30 seconds on the clock. To buy the property, you must have the highest bid, above reserve price, when the clock reaches the end of 3rd call, uninterrupted.
If the bid doesn't reach reserve during final call, it will transition back to best offer and you can start making bids again.
To bid in any of the three stages of the auction, simply type your bid amount into the auction box on the page of the property you want to buy and submit it. You'll be ask to confirm your bid. The bid must be at least equal to or above the minimum bid indicated.
8. Vendor bid
One vendor bid may be placed before the auction reaches reserve (never after) during the final call segment of the auction.
9. Hammer fall
When the hammer falls, the sales advice providing full sale and purchaser’s details will automatically be emailed to the vendor, the buyer, their solicitors and the listing agent. From here, there are several options. First and foremost, the buyer and vendor should seek to check the ID of the other so they are comfortable to proceed with the sale.
Depending on how the sale has been set up, the auctioneer may sign the contract on behalf of the buyer and seller, the solicitor may facilitate exchange, or the agent may send a signing page to the vendor and buyer to sign immediately and email back, with the original to come in the mail (or in person).
There is no 'cooling off period' under auction conditions in most states and territories. Conditions vary from state-to-state, so make sure you understand the conditions of your state. You must read and agree to these conditions to be approved as a bidder.
For most states, the contract must be signed on the day of auction and the deposit paid. If this rule is not followed, or the buyer decides not to go ahead with the purchase, the auctioneer can sign on the buyers behalf (in most states), and the vendor can pursue the buyer in court to cover their losses.
