NOTES

1. Terms

Both packages enable sellers to list their property ‘Until Sold’ or removed from market by the seller

2. Listings on other sites

Other than REA (realestate.com.au) and domain.com.au, both companies offer listings on other smaller property listing portals. These vary depending on type, price and location as some sites are ‘specialist’ portals, e.g. MillionPlus offers listings for properties over $1M. We have included the minimum number of sites a standard residential listing would be listed on.

3. Independent Verified Reviews

These are as at time of writing, and only include reviews from independent review organisations (Trust Pilot and Feefo) that verify the reviews as having come from actual legitimate sales.
