I am so grateful to have found Homebid to assist me with the sale of my flat! Great value for money and all the assistance and professional advice (including professional photo's) from the Homebid team for me, a novice seller. Everything went so well and I had an offer within 1 day of listing the property!! I highly recommend Homebid.

Kind regards,
Janice Holt, Seller, Halfway Gardens
I would like to thank Homebid for all the help and support in helping me sell my property. I received an offer within 2 days of my property going live on the net. I was able to reduce my asking price and get a quick sale, because I saved over R50000 on commission. I will recommend Homebid to friends and family interested in selling their property.

Kind regards,
Jessie Marriday, Seller, Midrand

Dear Homebid,

Thank you very much for your assistance in selling my property, you guys really make it look easy.

Keep up the great work and lift Homebid to even greater heights. You've got a client for life with me!!

Kind regards,

Successful Robindale sale

Homebid coached us through every step of the process of selling our Robindale home in 16 days and for the next 10 weeks until transfer was registered. Rodney’s years of experience and calm approach kept our anxiety down. We recommend Homebid when you want to sell property safely. Read the detailed story below if you choose.

A member of our church sold their home easily via an internet company and that encouraged us to do the same. An article in Personal Finance also reviewed Homebid and gave us more assurance. So in May we compiled a description with Homebid, they came to take photos then they listed it on their web-site and on several other big property web-sites.

Two estate agents had given us similar valuations and Homebid sent a professional valuer whose assessment was practically the same. One week later two couples had made appointments and came for us to show them around. The third viewer liked our house so much that she made an offer to purchase at the valuation price. That we happily accepted 16 days after the online listing.

Five days later we emailed our documents to the attorney / conveyancer that Homebid appointed and the buyer applied for a 100% Nedbank bond. Seventeen days later the bond was approved and another week later we knew the amount that Joburg city needed to cover the next 3 months’ bills before they would issue a Clearance Certificate.

On 31 July 2017 the guarantee from Nedbank secured the purchase price and the date for registration of transfer by the Deeds Office might have been about 21 August; 2 months after accepting the offer. But by 10 August 2017 Nedbank was expecting the buyer to cancel another bond over another property. On 6 Sep 2017 Nedbank finally waived that requirement so that transfer was registered on 18 Sep 2017. This month delay compelled us to sell investments to pay Flower Foundation for the life right to our new home. On 29 Sep 2017 we got payment of the proceeds; three months after the sale was agreed, which is the average for many property deals.

We recommend Homebid when you want to sell property safely.

Charles Irons, Seller, Robindale

Dear HomeBid

The process of selling our house seemed like a daunting undertaking. It has been over 10 years since we last did it, and the market has changed since then. At the same time there is no shortage of real estate agents, but that made the decision of who to use so much more complicated. We reviewed the big players but I just couldn’t get over the idea that I’d have to sacrifice 7% (or more) of the sale of our house just so that someone could just publish an add on the website. In a world where everyone is selling everything through the internet, it seemed like a ridiculous premium to pay for an archaic business model. We did advertise privately, and we did (reluctantly) engage with some of the popular estate agents, but from my first engagement with Homebid I felt much more comfortable. Terri from Homebid was professional, consistent, approachable and motivated to sell the house. She gave us the most valuable advice about how to price our property, what strategies we should follow and continuously evaluated our position. Through diligent persistence Homebid sold our house at the right price. Other agencies tried to push my selling price down while insisting on a very high commission. The best part is that Homebid had the lowest commission of anyone I could find – and at least half what other agencies expected. Honestly, I think Homebid is geared for the future of real estate transactions. They focus on what is important, they’re easy to work with and reliable. I would definitely recommend them.

Regards,
Emile Parkin, Sunninghill

Dear HomeBid

Working with Homebid has been a real pleasure from the first call to enquire about the services offered, the professional photographer who took pictures of my property and effective management of sales and registration of deal. I would recommend Homebid to potential sellers as you save a tidy sum.

Regards, Allistair Schwarp, Crown Gardens

Dear Homebid

My dealings with Homebid from start to finish were seamless to say the least! Friendly & professional without being invasive, what more could I ask for! Would I use Homebid again in the future- without a doubt!

Would I refer them to friends and family- already have, and continue to do so!
Keep up the good work Homebid!

Richard McGhee, Magaliessig

Dear HomeBid,

It was really a pleasure working with your company. It is seldom that one encounters such professionalism and good support these days. I am most certainly going to save your details on my computer so that I can give it to any of my friends who needs your services!

Thank you very much indeed! May you have a blessed Xmas and a very prosperous New Year!

Steyn Venter, Lyttelton
HomeBid, great value proposition, get all the same features and service as a standard estate agent, at a 1/3 of the cost, it’s the future of selling homes.

Danilo Mantoan, Rosebank
Having had my house on the market for 18 months with no success, I decided to give HomeBid a call. Not only was the process absolutely painless in terms of getting my property listed on their website (which is very rare when selling a house), but HomeBid also ensured that I was never inconvenienced by logistics for viewings as they liaised directly with my tenant at the time. Morgan from HomeBid was phenomenal in her interactions with me, and in keeping me informed of the progress at all times. My house was sold within a month! For a working mother and wife with everstressful life situations, working with HomeBid has been the perfect experience.

Jolene James, Randburg

Dear HomeBid

The Homebid model is pure genius, it is simplicity at its best, my agent Allana was extremely informed, very helpful at every juncture. My sale turned out to be a complicated one but Allana took the burdens of complication upon herself and made it work out as I wanted it to. Between lawyers, the purchaser and my requests she just made it work out where all parties were happy. In the end I can say that I have and will recommend Homebid to friends and family because my agent Allana Smith was amazing and I had no negative experience with any other part of the Homebid process, best of all the commission is low.

Many thanks for everything,
Jeyato Bezuidenhout, New Germany

Dear HomeBid

Thanks to Homebid for all the hardwork that was put in. Homebid made the process of selling my property very pleasant - the best part is that it is at a fraction of what all these other property agents charge in terms of their exorbitant agents' fees. I'm glad to have found out about Homebid at this very crucial point in my life. From now on Homebid will be my one and ONLY property agent that I use when buying and selling property. Kudos to Homebid!

Regards,
Mpho Khunou, Pinetown

Ruth, Purchaser, Weltevreden Park
We are based in Gauteng, and were not physically able to attend to the sale of our lovely holiday property in Ballito.

Allana made herself available to assist with the valuation and certification requirements, and at all times was happy to assist me and show prospective buyers the unit. This was our first property sale using Homebid, and we were a bit sceptical about the level of service we may receive, as other than us living in Gauteng, the commission charge was low and were totally dependant on the commitment and service that Allana gave us.

Both my husband and I were totally impressed and satisfied, so much to the extent that we have just signed another sole mandate for the sale of our home in Benoni with Homebid.

Dear Dane,

I want to say a big, big thank you to you and all your staff for all that was done by each one for the sale of no. 14 The Links, Sterretjie Street, Wilgeheuwel.

It all went so smoothly and I felt good about being involved in the sale.

It was also so well orchestrated by yourselves as each prospective buyer was arranged for their viewing. This was so well done and flowed like clockwork.

These viewers were well chosen and I was amazed. The first viewer walked in and immediately wanted the flat but was very concerned that it might be that someone else was more suited. She was so keen I promised I would entertain the other viewers but would definitely keep the purchase for her, which I did.

I then introduced her to Homebid for the sale of her own property and from there it was plain sailing for both of us.

I immediately telephoned your office and asked that no further viewers be booked as we had a buyer and my team of workers and I set to fixing up the place for her to move in asap.

We renewed 5 slightly worn kitchen cupboard doors; kick plates; rusted door hinges; and also replaced the top of the cupboards in the kitchen, adding a further two cupboards for additional space for her and got the garden deweeded of a few weeds, edged the lawn and to the plants already in the garden, added a prolifically flowering hibiscus bush and a beautiful flamboyant bush too. We replaced the gooseneck and shower head in the bath & generally had the place at almost 100% before giving her the keys. We did not renew very old light fittings in the lounge as I thought my taste would differ from hers.

The last ditch was to write to the Body Corp/agents to repair a yellow spot on the ceiling, which they did a bit later though, but now I could hand over the place and was happy to know it was as you had advertised it as 'highly maintained'. There was absolutely no need for her to make any repairs to any part of the place.

It was great fun doing this and the satisfaction experienced by the team and myself was amazing.

Thank you again Dane, it was a blessed experience having had you and your staff assist me all the way. I really appreciated it greatly.

I do have three other free standing houses/properties and at the age of 76 I might in the future, consider selling and will definitely use your Company again.

A blessed, blessed festive time to you all.

Dieudonne' Joubert, Seller, Wilgeheuwel

Good Day HomeBid,

Trying to find the right word to explain my dealings with Claudia and I think its Humane. I experienced the most ridiculous sequence of events since I decided to place my house on the market and through every one of them Claudia has been understanding and sympathetic with placing no added pressure that one usually associates with real estate agents.

She extends herself to seek advice and one finds oneself calling her just to check in if I am on the right track .

Many Thanks
Shireen Miller, Seller, Albertsville
Good professional service throughout.

Many Thanks
Mark Owen, Seller, Randburg
Very professional, quick and easy. My property was sold within a week of listing. HomeBid's method of selling is revolutionary.

Dear Allana,

I was dreading selling my property as i knew that I will have to be present whenever people wanted to view, but with HomeBid, there was no such problem. I was given the option on when It was convenient for me to have potential buyers to view my property. My property was on the market for a week and was sold. Dealing with you Allana, was an absolute pleasure, always there to be of assistance when needed. I can without hesitation recommend HomeBid to anyone who is buying or selling. Thank you so much for your patience and kindness throughout the whole process, much appreciated and I wish you well in all your future endeavours.

Regards,
Daphne Keet, Seller, Umbilo

Dear Homebid,

I AM JUST SAYING UNDER A WEEK - LOL - STILL CANT BELIVE IT God bless you guys!!!!

Good Morning Allana,

I pray our email finds you well. Patrick and I want to Thank You for all that you've done for us. Thank you for the way you handled the sale of No. 22. We thought it was going to be a nightmare, but you handled this with utmost professionalism yet you were kind and personal with us.

Thank you for your patience and for the answers to our questions, even for the petty ones....

It was a joy working with you, and we would like to assure you that if we ever have to do this again we will definitely do it with you.

Wishing you all of the very best. Keep well. With warm regards,

Patrick and Marion Macguire.

Ps. I shall miss your joyful laughter....

Dear Cavan and Allana,

Many thanks for all your assistance with the sale of our townhouse, we are delighted that transfer went through today. I am very happy that we decided to go with HomeBid as our agents. We had an offer to purchase two months after my initial call to HomeBid and transfer went through one and a half months later.

I think a turnaround from first enquiry phone call to transfer of three and half months is very impressive! Of course we are also very pleased with the savings we made on the commission, and it was a pleasure dealing with you both from an administrative point of view.

We have been telling our friends and family what a good experience we had with HomeBid and will be sure to recommend you in future.

All the best to you both.

Nicky Scholfield, Ferndale

Dear HomeBid

I am so impressed that I had to send an e-mail to express my appreciation. I have made contact via private property. The contact person on the site is Allana Smith. I instantly receive an out of office and few moments later I receive a response acknowledging my request and constantly give me feedback upon my requests.

When Allana return to the office she took over and knew exactly what my requirements were. I hope to venture in doing business with you.

Rajean Ramsamooch - Buyer

I hope my mail finds you well and in the best of health. Thought I would let you know that all is over with the sale of my place.

Thank you once again.
