    You made my day ! I love learning something new every day .
    I got a house I might sell it , I’m not sure as yet, If I decide to do it , I’m confident I can sell it myself.
    So far I’ve received a few inquires from my neighbours . looking for a house in the area for relatives .

      Excellent article, it is outrageous this is allowed to happen, reminds me of the banking royal commission, some of the Financial Planners where claiming trail commissions for doing nothing.

    Great stuff, I will certainly take your advise and run it past our solicitors before signing anything.

    Thank goodness we have someone like Neil and his organisation warning us of these shady practices. His organisation appears to be the sole protector of real estate sellers in the industry. I will particularly note this particular article on Introduction for when I downsize in the future. Many thanks.

    I wasn’t aware of this “introduction” clause until a friend of mine was chased by a lazy agent for a second commission. He fought it off and gave him nothing. This is a despicable action and should be outlawed in every state and territory in Australia.
    Every sensible seller should use no one else other than Neil’s JENMAN SUPPORT preferred Agents.

    I decided to sell my (investment) house myself. I got two valuers to appraise it and I set the price based on them. I printed fliers, a poster board out front and advertised on all the RE sites. Total cost of advertising was $350.

    I decided to have open home inspections on Sunday afternoons because then was the only time I was free. Among the many people who came to view, or who phoned me, were real estate agents. They were all very negative.

    One RE agent who came to view the house was particularly loathsome. She said I was on her ‘turf’, and I had no idea what I was doing. She said the price was wrong. She implied what I was doing was borderline illegal, and that she could sell the place by the ‘next day’ if I signed it over to her. She said the house was ‘a mess’ as she looked distainfully around. She has a list of buyers, she claimed. I asked her to send them around to look. She snorted. Needless to say, no one ever called claiming she had sent them.

    I sold the house for the price I asked to a young family. They told me they appreciated the inside knowledge of the property and surrounds, and thanked me for my honesty. My settlement agent did all the paperwork without a hassle. Her fee was $600.

    The whole process was fun and painless and cost about $1k, excluding my time and fuel costs to get there. I met many interesting (and a couple of loathsome) people, and the experience has inspired me to take control of the sale of the our other houses when the time comes. I highly recommend it.
