Potential downsizers have the opportunity to maximise the sale price of their home by choosing the best real estate agent thanks to a new partnership between Downsizing.com.au and Agent Select.
Downsizing.com.au co-CEO Amanda Graham said the partnership would be particularly helpful for downsizers who are currently considering their options during the coronavirus-related economic downturn.
“We know that many downsizers are looking to boost their retirement income, or to rid themselves of an unwanted mortgage, and downsizing from their current family home is one way to do this,” Ms Graham said.
“Equally so, downsizers may be living at home alone and are considering moving into a retirement community because of the supportive network and services these communities provide.
“This may be a decision downsizers are looking to make now, or a little down the track when some of the current volatility is removed from the market.
“Our new partnership with Agent Select will help potential downsizers on this important journey.”
How it works
As part of the partnership, Downsizing.com.au readers are able to get a free Agent Select property report, outlining recent sales of similar properties in the local area.
An Agent Select concierge will then help the reader compare up to three of the best performing local real estate agents, including being able to investigate the agents’ fees, terms and experience.
In addition, as part of the partnership, the Agent Select concierge is able to organise a free and detailed property appraisal from a preferred agent, at a time that is convenient.
Agent Select is one of Australia's leading property service providers, supporting home owners through the often complex and stressful process of transacting property.
In doing so, Agent Select leverages unique proprietary technology and a team of property service professionals to provide independent guidance and empowered choice to home owners across Australia. It has a database of more than 40,000 agents across Australia.
Agent Select’s CEO David Ginnane said the partnership with Downsizing.com.au made sense, given both companies are committed to service excellence, trust, independence and providing informed choice.
“AgentSelect is very pleased to be able to support Downsizing.com.au’s readers navigate the complexities and costs of a property transaction,” he said.
