Do you want to buy real estate online?
Sale Ezy makes buying real estate online very easy. To make an offer, follow the below instructions.
1. Find the property you want to buy
So, you have been to inspect a property and now you want to buy it? Start with making an offer!
Remember, all bids and offers on Sale Ezy are legally binding under state law -- if you make an offer and it is accepted, you are legally obligated to proceed with the sale.
To get started, use the search on Sale Ezy's homepage to find the property you are interested in and click through to the property page.
2. Open the registration form
Every person who makes an offer or bids on a property using Sale Ezy must be registered. Your ID must be validated by the agent selling the property before you submit any offers or bids.
On the property page, find the 'register to make an offer now' or 'register to bid' button and click it.
If you are already logged into Sale Ezy, you will be directed straight to the registration form.
If you are not logged in:
If you don't have a free browser profile with Sale Ezy, click 'register' and fill in your name and email address to be sent to the buyer registration form.
If you do have a browser profile, click 'log in'.
3. Fill in the registration form
Fill in every section of the registration form that applies to you.
Note: you will need to take a photo of your licence or passport and upload (just take it with your phone!), and also sign and upload the auctioneer authority agreement, which is provided in the registration form (a phone photo of it is fine!).
Don't forget to read the information at the end of the form carefully and tick the boxes that apply to you, read the terms and conditions and then submit.
4. Buyer payment
Sale Ezy requires buyers to pay a nominal $5 fee to bid or offer online. This fee is in place to protect all users -- it assures us you have a valid payment option and bank account, so we don't need to hold a big deposit from you. It allows us to undertake a security check.
Please submit the payment (made securely through NAB payment portal).
5. Wait for approval
As soon as your registration is submitted, the selling agent receives a notification and is asked to check your licence and approve you to offer or bid -- this can happen in minutes if the agent is standing by.
Until you are approved, you cannot make any offer and you will see a note on the property page that lets you know you're not approved to offer yet.
If the agent has approved your registration, just refresh your screen (ctrl + F5) and you can start making offers.
6. Start making offers or bidding!
If the property is available for best offer, once you are an approved buyer, click the 'make an offer' button, type in your offer and click 'bid now'.
STEP 1 Click to make an offer
STEP 2 TYPE IN OFFER AND ANY CONDITION
If you enter a condition, for example, a 6 month settlement, the wording needs to be provided by your solicitor as it will be included verbatim in the contract if you are successful.
STEP 3 CONFIRM YOUR OFFER
7 Monitor and respond
After you submit your offer, the real estate agent and the property owner will be notified.
They have 24 hours to review your offer and accept it. If they don't accept it within 24 hours, it will be automatically withdrawn on your behalf so you aren't committed for an unreasonable period of time.
Keep an eye on the bid log and your email, other buyers can submit offers at any time.
8. Finalise your purchase
If your offer is accepted during best offer, or your bid is the highest above the set reserve during final call, the hammer will fall on screen, symbolising that the sale is over and you have purchased the property.
An email will be sent to you and your solicitor to confirm your purchase and the details.
You need to exchange contracts and pay the deposit immediately. The agent will give you several options for signing the contract, or they can sign on your behalf if you are not available.
If you do not exchange contracts and pay the deposit straight away, the property owner can take legal action against you.
