Frequently Asked Questions for sellers

How does the SalePartners HouseSold System work?

The HouseSold System is divided into five parts:

  • Preparing your home
  • Marketing
  • Dealing with buyers
  • Closing the sales
  • Key legal issues and costs

The HouseSold System is designed to empower you from when you decide to sell your home yourself to the end of the process where you keep the commission you would have had to pay to an estate agent.

What are the benefits of using SalePartners?

  • More control, less hassle: You set your listing price and you control when and how your home is marketed. You deal directly with prospective buyers and you schedule home viewings and show houses when it suits you.
  • You are a better agent for your home than anyone else: You have the best knowledge of your own home and the area around it and you are able to provide the best information about both to potential buyers. You also care more about selling your home than anyone else and you will put the most complete and dedicated effort into selling.
  • Significant savings in your pocket: You can save up to 8% of the selling price of your home when you act as your own estate agent.
  • Faster selling: As you are saving a significant amount in agent's commission, you can price your home more competitively. The listing price of a property is the single most important factor when it comes to how fast a property sells.
  • Less uncertainty: You interact directly with prospective buyers and so you have a much clearer idea of the level of interest in your home and how serious potential buyers are about purchasing.

Does SalesPartners charge commission?

No, SalePartners does not charge any commission whatsoever. Our whole focus is to empower you so that you do not have to pay any commission on the sale of your home.

Do I need to hire a transfer attorney when I sell my home?

Unless you are very familiar with the different legal aspects and stages involved in selling property, we advise that hiring a transfer attorney (also known as a conveyancer) is money well spent. A good conveyancer will save your significant time and hassle, and will protect your interests throughout the transfer process.

How does the 100% money-back guarantee work?

What is the number for the 24-hour legal helpline?

The SalePartners Helpline number is xx xxxxxxx and the Helpline operates from xx:xx to xx:xx, Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays.

Where will prospective buyers be able to see my listing?

Your listing will be visible on Property 24, the premier property listing portal for South Africa.

Why might I want to make use of the Pay As You Go agent?

You might not want to take on all the aspects involved in the process of selling your home. For instance, you might prefer to outsource the organising and carrying out of a show house to someone with experience doing this, or you might prefer an agent to show your home to potential buyers, rather than having to do so yourself. In such cases, you have the option to make use of a Pay As You Go agent who will represent your property to buyers. SalePartners has a fantastic and easy online Home Viewing Scheduler that allows buyers to book a time with an available agent to view a property.
