A groundbreaking real estate platform is poised to revolutionize the conventional role of a sales agent by providing property owners with the opportunity to sell their homes without incurring the hefty fees typically associated with real estate agencies.
Founded by Andy Dunn and Josh Luschwitz, Wavie has emerged as a game-changing solution that empowers property owners to take charge of their property sales, resulting in substantial savings on commissions and fees.
Mr. Luschwitz, the Co-founder and Managing Director of Wavie, highlighted the platform’s mission to offer vendors greater flexibility in their selling approach.
“Wavie has been born out of our personal experiences and our shared dissatisfaction with the outdated practices of many agents and the substantial fees that have become synonymous with traditional property sales,” Mr. Luschwitz explained.
“As a result, Wavie has emerged as an innovative solution set to transform the real estate landscape. We recognized a glaring need for a platform that places property owners in control of their transactions, providing them with unparalleled control, complete transparency, and significant cost savings in their property-selling journey.”
Wavie’s do-it-yourself platform presents homeowners with straightforward plans, offering a range of services to support them in selling their properties independently. The pricing structure begins at $6,995 for homes valued at up to $500,000 and goes up to $14,995 for properties above $1.5 million.
These services encompass a comprehensive package that includes support, listings on sales platforms, conveyancing, professional photography, social media marketing, signage, and digital advertising. These tools and resources are designed to equip homeowners with everything they need to successfully sell their property on their terms.
Mr. Luschwitz, who is an agent based in Sydney, emphasized the importance of giving property owners the freedom to choose how they allocate their resources during the selling process.
“As the homeowner, you possess the most intimate knowledge of your property,” he stated. “You also understand the value of both time and money, and thus, you should have the ability to make informed choices about how you spend your money when selling your property.”
He added that the platform could save vendors tens of thousands of dollars while delivering results on par with those obtained through traditional real estate agents.
“If you have the time to undertake sales activities yourself and have access to a platform that equips you with all the necessary tools and assistance, then why not take this route?” Mr. Luschwitz questioned.
“The platform is user-friendly, highly intuitive, and, most importantly, it provides everything needed for a successful and cost-effective sales campaign, ultimately putting more of the sale funds back into your pocket.”
Despite the launch of this innovative platform, Mr. Luschwitz affirmed that it does not diminish the need for real estate agents.
“As a real estate agent, I have been asked why I am potentially eliminating my own job,” he acknowledged.
