Frequently Asked Questions

What is your “Appraisal Accuracy Rate”

When getting appraisals from real estate agents, it can be hard to know if the agent is giving you an accurate and realistic price range… or pitching for your listing. We commit to giving you figures you can rely on. So we keep track of each appraisal and compare it to where the property actually sells. We…

Is DOUBLE the work needed to sell a $400,000 property as a $200,000 one?

Of course not. The ease of sale, regardless of value, usually comes down to how well you present your property, how realistic your price expectation is, and how many genuine buyers are in the market. The value of your property has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of work involved in selling it. Yet…

Why are traditional commissions so high?

It’s mainly because they are contingency based, which means you only pay a fee if you choose to sell at the end of the day. However, when you do sell – you pay substantially more than the true cost involved. You are effectively subsidising the time, effort and expense – agents spend working for other…

Adam was very committed, up front, honest and achieved our agreed price in a relatively short period of time.

    “Thank you Carl and Liz for making the sale of our home as quick and stress free as possible. We were confident in accepting the first offer on our home knowing we were saving a substantial amount in fees. Because of their professional, honest, yet friendly approach to selling real estate we would not hesitate to use Restate again in the future, or to recommend them to anyone wanting a quick and efficient sale of their home.”

    “My husband and I recently decided to promptly sell our home, we knew exactly who to call, the team at Restate. Carl took the time to discuss his new sales model in detail with us, and after understanding this we knew we had made the right choice. We were in the process of moving into a new home & also had a 3 week old newborn, the team made this time stress & worry free. Liz & the photographer came to help prepare the home & recommend any changes & enhancements to the property, they were brilliant & completely understanding of our situation with the newborn. Carl, Liz & the team at Restate were professional, friendly & knowledgeable of the local market, but they were also honest & realistic. Their communication was great & always with the least disruption to us & our newborn. With Restate you really do get a whole team, & their Administration Manager, Bev, was pleasant, efficient & helpful. The whole selling process went smoothly, & we were confident we were in good hands. After the initial listing & marketing we found ourselves in a multi-offer situation with contracts above our expectations, & after accepting, quickly going unconditional. We are thrilled with the large profit made using Restate’s sales model compared to traditional Real Estate Agent fees. Overall, we are extremely happy with the selling experience & the final result from Restate, and would, without a doubt use them again & recommend them to family & friends.”

    “We engaged the services of Restate Ltd. to handle the sale of our rental property. We were given a comprehensive explanation of their New Marketing Plan which we agreed to, and entered in to a contract to market the house. Within a few days the house was advertised; an open home took place and ultimately the property was sold in a matter of a couple of weeks. Restate Ltd New Marketing Plan certainly worked for us and also saved us a considerable sum of money. We would recommend Restate Ltd and their new marketing plan to anyone proposing to sell a property. Prompt and efficient service is always a bonus.”

    “Thank you Restate Ltd for providing an excellent service for the marketing and sale of our property…We were given friendly, realistic and pragmatic advice on how to present our property for maximum market potential. We also took advantage of Professionals refreshed lower commission based and user pays model for selling. A newer approach which I firmly believe is way fairer to both agent and vendor. Restate Ltd are an excellent selling team. Working well with prospective buyers, communicating effectively and informatively. Correct marketing strategy and skilled negotiation has been invaluable. A pleasing result for all parties concerned. Many thanks Restate!”

  • “Why did we decide to go with Restate?

    A number of reasons, but the key was how black and white Restate’s model and philosophy is. It connects with you, it’s positive and it works!

    Carl, Liz, Adam and the team were wonderful to work with – great listening & knowledge of the market. How confidential Carl and the team were was outstanding. This is a team who care about the seller but offer the buyer an honest and transparent sales model too.

    On top of all that, our fees were close to half what we would have paid a traditional agent. I would not hesitate in recommending Restate to your selling mission.”

  • “When we chose Restate to sell our property there were two reasons:

    1. The price advantage over traditional commission methods, and just as importantly
    2. The confidence we got from the agent when discussing Restates philosophy and methods (especially when it comes to use of the internet).

    The price advantage was realised & we enjoy the fact that we have only paid for the service required to sell our house. Nothing more, nothing less.
    The thing that really impressed us though, is the service & support from our agent, Adam Dufty. He kept us informed at all stages, he offered advice & made it clear the decisions were ours and when thing got tough he leapt into action & made things happen. We have bought & sold many times, and all agents say they work for the seller. We can honestly say this is the first time the agents actions matched the words. Selling with Restate has been a very pleasurable experience during what is traditionally a stressful time, & we
    unreservedly recommend them to any one selling their home.”

Is your real estate agent HUNGRY enough?

Is your real estate agent HUNGRY enough? After all, it’s a good thing right? You do want them to be ‘hungry’ for the sale, don’t you?
