Description: Property Whispers - Australia's instant matching & connecting platform for off-market and on-market properties - has had a significant increase in the number of buyers registering and the number of properties agents have uploaded. Month-to-month comparing March to April 2020, there has been 133% increase in buyer registrations and comparing April 2020 to April 2019, there has been 100% increase. We have also seen 149% increase in properties uploaded by agents when comparing March to April 2020 and a whopping 903% increase in properties uploaded comparing April 2020 to April 2019. Thousands of new matches have been created with ready buyers for those agents. Over 56,000 matches have taken place on the platform so far. In part this is Covid-19 related, with new stock low on the major advertising portals since vendors are shying away from expensive advertising. This 'new normal' is changing the way agents are doing business introducing agents and their vendors to the benefits of using direct-matching online platforms such as Property Whispers. Jason Malouf, Real Estate Agent, Ray White Maroubra/South Coogee says “It’s a tough market right now securing a listing and many vendors don’t want to spend on advertising. By using Property Whispers I can offer my vendor the opportunity to sell for free right now and I’m instantly connected with suitable buyers and get their contact details. It works very well since I’m put in touch with buyers right away and don’t need the open for inspections to start a conversation. Even before COVID-19 hit I sold a property in Kingsford to a purchaser introduced by the Property Whispers platform. It’s really easy and now free to use!” Buyers are also looking beyond the major platforms to find their dream home and love the instant matching they get on Property Whispers and particularly the access to properties for sale ‘off-market’. Of the buyers who registered in April 2020 on Property Whispers, 76% are looking to buy within 3 months which indicates that there are savvy buyers in the market right now, and 91% of them have their finance arranged, so they are ready to buy their dream home!
