It’s not too hard to sell real estate in Australia these days – even parking spaces can fetch up to $120,000. However, with online listings widening the real estate agent’s geographical scope, competition among agents for the best listings across whole cities is fierce, and it can be difficult for vendors to pick the right agent when they all promise the world.
Selecting the right real estate is critical in the process of selling your property. But many property owners make that choice blindly, often pulling a name out of the hat due to the overwhelming number of agents to choose from. Australian startup OpenAgent.com.au makes that process easier. Clients visit the site, provide basic details about the property they’d like to sell, and the platform provides real-time real estate agent rankings and recommendations for them.
