FAQ

1. How many properties can I list and how long will they stay listed?

As many as you like as long as you are the owner. They will stay listed until sold. Estate agents are forbidden to advertise here and if it was found that a member / advertiser was in fact an estate agent they will be reported. Administration manager is a Principal Property Practitioner and is the only person in the property industry authorised to advertise properties for sale here.

2. How do I get my property featured in the main home page slide show?

We charge a small fee for “FEATURED PROPERTIES” slideshow main adverts on a sliding scale ie; R100 per week, R175 for two weeks and only R300 for a whole month. You have a much greater chance of attracting buyers whilst using this main slot.

3. Does admin offer free professional advice?

Yes! Anytime and as quick as possible. Some basic advice can be handled telephonically but more involved legal jargon will be supplied per email. Please note this advice is for property matters only and for obvious reasons must be restricted. For example admin cannot teach you how to do the job of an estate agent!

4. Can admin help a private seller to conclude a sales contract in its entirety?

Yes, the administrator is a principal property practitioner and can help you attend to the successful conclusion of the sales contract and prepare all the necessary legal documents required by the conveyancer . The administrator will however charge a minimal 3% percent [incl. VAT] sales commission for this extensive professional work assuming you have listed your property and found the buyer yourself. An estate agent would have charged you 8.55% - 11.4% [incl. VAT] for this same undertaking!

5. Why can’t estate agents list properties?

 This is the first free property listing website in South Africa designed exclusively for private sellers who wish to list their properties and attract their own buyers thereby saving thousands on agent’s commission. Estate agent use is strictly against the concept of this website which has been developed purely for the benefit and purpose of the private seller. Remember it is free and without any obligation to a private seller who lists their property themselves.

6. Could I buy just the sales contract from you and fill it in myself?

Yes we sell certain blank documents such as sales agreements, FICA forms, sales addendums etc. Others documents are also available for a small fee. Please remember that filling in and signing a sales agreement for your property can be very risky and should rather be undertaken by a property professional such as the Administrator of Free Online Property Listings.

7. If I am not that computer literate, is it easy to get my property on this website?

It is nice and easy to get your property on FREE ONLINE PROPERTY.
3 Simple steps.
  • Click on "Registration" at the top of the home page and register.
  • After you have registered - Click "Login"   [Don't forget to login!]
  • Click on "Add Property Listing" on the left side of the home page, and fill in the details. Please add up to 10 quality pictures, they attract buyers!
Admin will then approve your listing shortly thereafter. 

9. Why do some listings take longer to upload?

Look to the bottom left of your screen to see percentage of upload. If your internet connection upload speed is slow, this can take up to a minute. Also larger size image files will take longer to load.

10. Ideally what size should the pictures be for uploading?

For a faster upload, and an upload that is not going to "hang", pictures should be approx. 100kbs each. You can upload 10 pictures per property.

 

11. How does a buyer interested in a property contact the seller?

All listings will have the sellers details.

12. What is the commission charged if I list and sell my property myself?

If you list and sell your property yourself there is absolutely no charge or fee payable to us. If you list the property yourself and request that we handle the transaction and sales agreement professionally on your behalf we will charge you a very minimal 3% of the selling price of the property. It is far safer if we handle the important sales contract and paperwork for you, and you will still save thousands of rands by using us!

13. What is the commission charged if Admin sells my property?

If admin lists your property on this website and finds a buyer and sells your property normal property sales commission rates will apply. These are 7.98% [plus VAT if applicable] for residential and sectional title listings, and for land and farm sales. These rates are only applicable when Admin has found the buyer for your property irrespective if your property was advertised on this website by Admin or not. This is the normal commission rate however it is negotiable. This does NOT apply to properties listed on this website by you.
