So avoiding mistakes is really about Protecting your equity from being needlessly eroded.
Your best protection is to simply avoid mistakes and traps in the first place. But that’s pretty hard to do if you’re unaware of them. Which is why in other ‘high stakes’ situations many of us choose to engage the services of a professional. An expert guiding us through the minefield. Looking out for our best interests. Empowering us to make more informed decisions.
Traditionally real estate does not operate as a Profession. It’s a Commission-driven Sales Industry.
So we restated real estate as a ‘Professional Service’. Fundamentally changing our core purpose from Selling you to Serving you. From Persauding you to Protecting you. Pushing to Guiding. Pitching to Advising. Closing to Recommending. Slick-talk to straight-talk. From focussing on maximizing our commission to being focussed on maximizing your net sale proceeds.
Many of the methods and tactics used by the sales industry (to get a commission), can actually reduce your final sale price.
So we guide you through what’s really important. An evidenced based – five part – proven process* that, if followed and well executed, will ensure you don’t undersell and give you the best chance of achieving a premium.
(* Statistics show that our clients are selling for higher average prices than the traditional model.)
Traditionally you can’t reduce your expenses. Simply because commissions are a bundled, one-size-fits-all fee – based solely on the value of your property. This removes your power of choice, along with your ability to reduce your selling costs. It’s why:
You pay the same high fee even when your property sells easily.
Higher-valued sellers pay more for exactly the same service.
And it’s why sellers are paying extra to subsidise the time, effort and expenses the industry loses working for non-sellers.
Fairer fees based on the actual work and outgoing cost needed to serve only you. Giving you the ability to radically reduce your selling expenses. Because you’re not subsidising work done for other people, you don’t pay more just because your property is worth more, and the easier your property sells – the less work & outgoing needed on your behalf – the lower your fees – the more equity you end up with.
Avoid traps that needlessly rob your equity.
Follow proven steps to achieve the highest sale price possible.
While also keeping your selling expenses as low as possible.
But the traditional industry operating system makes it impossible for us to help you achieve all three.
So we developed an approach that does.
Now proven by hundreds sellers. And in almost every single case it’s outperformed the old model on the metric that counts:
Dollars left in your pocket.*
(* 300+ clients have not only achieved a sale at a great price, they’ve saved on average over $5,000 – compared to what they would have paid in traditional real estate commissions.)
Restate’s core philosophy is to repackage real estate as a professional service, and they have achieved exactly that. Every aspect of their unique model is geared towards the seller’s best interest, and it’s far more than a superficial makeover. In a world where competition just means a slightly lower commission, Restate make a radical departure, and sellers are all the more better off for it.
Of course, a different model sounds good on paper, but Carl, Liz and Adam worked in perfect unison to deliver that point of difference, and expertly guided us through our sale. There were no hand-wavey explanations, just pure experienced logic. In our first consultation, Carl spoke about maintaining absolute transparency, focusing on just that small handful of realistic genuine buyers, and a robust negotiation strategy. This all made perfect sense to us, and we were able to achieve a successful contract at asking price, in just a few days; all without a single open home. To top it all off, we were able to make a substantial saving to the tune of around $7000 on a traditional marketing model.
This is just the status quo for these guys, and we are but one from a long list of sellers who have had the exact same success story.
For anyone on the fence, perhaps a little unsure about signing on with a company outside the norm: we would absolutely recommend Restate without hesitation, and they will be our first port of call for any future real estate needs. There are no tricks or gimmicks, just facts, logic and a model re-imagined for the modern market. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to go with Restate.
