Buying and selling real estate while open for inspections and auctions are banned

Property Whispers is helping buyers and agents connect safely

Since the Federal Government has banned residential property ‘open for inspections’ and public auctions, buyers and agents are seeking a safer way to connect during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Resilience and adaptation are hallmarks of the Australian way and the sector is already looking for alternative, safe and healthy ways for vendors, agents and buyers to interact, so that they can continue to buy and sell property. There are vendors who need or want to sell; agents with listings already in the market, and buyers who do not want finance approvals to lapse.

Property Whispers, Australia’s only instant matching and connecting residential property platform is a big part of the solution and it is completely free for agents and buyers to use.

Says co-founder Liane Fletcher:

“Since buyers can’t attend an open for inspection, shake hands with an agent or huddle together at an auction, what can they do?

Property Whispers is offering its service completely free, matching buyers and agents and connecting them so that they can assess specific property opportunities safely – complying with the new laws, without crowds and with appropriate social distancing.

The way it works is:

  • Buyers register and provide their purchase specifications (ie) their preferred property type, suburb, price range and other requirements.
  • Agents upload properties for sale – either by ‘auction’, ‘private treaty’ or for sale ‘off-market’.
  • Property Whispers’ algorithm matches buyers and properties and instantly connects agents and buyers so that they can discuss particular properties.
  • This can be done by phone, text or email as a precursor to a privately arranged inspection.

Following this, an offer, negotiation and exchange of contract can all be done with little direct interaction, keeping all parties safe and well"

Over 38,000 instant matches have been created to date. Agents and vendors have a ready marketplace and active buyers can continue finding their dream homes!

Property Whispers (www.propertywhispers.com.au) is simple to use and stands ready to help buyers, sellers and agents in these difficult times, allowing them to continue to buy and sell properties, in a safe and healthy way.
