Why would I not just use Gumtree to Rent or Sell my property without an agent?

You can. However, the type of enquiry and the quality that you will get from Gumtree will never stack up to what you will receive from a major Real Estate site. Use it, but look at what else is available, as well.

The Gumtree website.

It is free. This site is a great one and is visited by many people each day. We all have visited it, at some stage, whether to sell or to buy. All varieties of items can be found there. The site generally attracts bargain hunters. Ones that may be trying to buy a cheap, second hand dining suite or other furniture item. Do you really think that it is the site that first comes to mind with buyers or tenants when they are looking for a new home? Probably not. Yes, you may generate some enquiry from the site, but the buyer may be a bargain hunter. The tenant may be trying to find a rental on this site, to avoid going through an Agent. They know Agents conduct Tenancy Database checks. Perhaps they have a bad rental history that they want to avoid an Agent finding out about.

So, what are the better sites to advertise Private Sales and Private Rentals?

Serious buyers and good quality tenants look for properties on the major Real Estate sites. Sites where they know they will find all the suitable properties, in the one place.

Realestate.com.au is Australia's #1 property site. However, they have a strict policy of only permitting Real Estate Agents to access their site. They have millions of property seekers visiting their site each month. Therefore, to have your property advertised on Realestate.com.au, you need a Real Estate Agency. However, that does not mean you still cannot sell it or rent it privately. ReDIY is a Licensed Real Estate Agency, but one with a difference. We assist Real Estate Private Sellers and Landlords to Do It Yourself.

Domain.com.au does allow Private Landlords and Sellers to access their site directly. They do have a market monopoly in some of the Southern States. However, their fees are charged by increments of advertising time, from 4 to 12 weeks. This means that if you do not get a result in the selected time frame, you need to pay again. Their charges are also more than our low, one off cost. Advertising with ReDIY means that your advertisement is on all of our sites until sold or leased.

ReDIY can advertise your Private Rental or Private Sale.

Our site is easy to use. Simply visit rediy.com.au and sign up. This will create your very own dashboard on our site. This is where you can enter your advertising text and upload your photos. Once you make the low, one off payment, press "Go Live", your property will be fed to Realestate.com.au, Domain.com.au and 8 other dedicated real estate sites immediately. Our site has been built as an XML feed and is an approved uploader. This means all information fed into our site automatically feeds to the real estate sites.

We suggest using a 3rd party site like ours that gives you access to all the major sites like Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au. Do not skimp on where to advertise your house for sale, as you will miss out on buyers who are prepared to pay you more. Likewise, advertise your rental, for a low one off fee, where you will attract the best quality tenant.
