Purplebricks Opens Door to Australia

730 x 235 Michael BruceIt’s official – Australia is turning purple.

Purplebricks, the UK’s fastest-growing real estate agency has launched in Australia to offer consumers a fairer, more transparent and cost-effective way to sell their homes.

With Australian property prices at their greatest peak, our launch in Australia will see the introduction of a flat fee to sell a home and challenge decades of commission over-pricing by traditional real estate agencies.

I’m excited to offer a flat fee model to Australians and know that the appetite for change is here. A recent report revealed that only one in four Australians are positive about the current sales model and little trust exists for real estate agents.

With the commission model broken and unfair to the back pocket of Australians, Purplebricks Australia will revolutionise the industry and save the average homeowner $11,500 when they sell their home, whilst at the same time offering a 24/7 personalised, high quality service, the support of experienced Local Property Experts and an accessible and transparent online platform.

It’s a compelling proposition and one that has delivered exceptional trust and reviews from happy Purplebricks sellers across the UK.

We’ve invested heavily in finding out what Australians want and need from a full service agency and I am confident that our flat fee model will delight them and save them money. The Purplebricks business is founded on the core principles of excellent customer service, value for money, transparency and convenience, which will really resonate with Australians.

With Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Geelong our first markets now open for business, we’re excited about being able to share news of our launch into Sydney, Adelaide and Perth with you soon too.

We will sell your property for a flat fee of $4,500 (plus a top up fee of $825 AUD for homes taken to auction) which includes professional photography, marketing and advertising on all the major property portals – a fraction of the cost of traditional real estate agents.

Purplebricks UK has been going for two years now.  We’ve gone from a standing start to being the fastest-growing and most positively reviewed real estate agent in the country and our customers love us.

We have an average score on Trustpilot of 9.3/10 from over 7,000 reviews and our Net Promoter Score sits at +80 – which is world class.

We’re bringing all that customer love and experience to Australia so that we can offer even more people a better and fairer deal when buying, selling, renting or letting real estate. I feel really passionate about it – everyone should get a great deal and excellent service.

Ryan Dinsdale, the new CEO of Purplebricks Australia and Luke Pervan, our Sales Director, along with all the Local Property Experts and Central Teams, are looking forward to helping customers sell their homes quickly, efficiently and at a great price.

I’m grateful to them and everyone else who has been involved in getting our Australian business up and running.
