The YouSell system is formulated so you know exactly what will happen each and every time…

You are in safe hands, the property owner knows more about the property than anyone else!

YouSell experts are on hand to help guide you through the process of buying.

Be confident that homeowners know what they are doing through our expert guided process, and the service will be transparent and well informed.

“So where do I start?”

  • Trade Me is where you will find YouSell properties for sale by owner
  • Viewings will be displayed as either Open Home or private viewing
  • Open Home – head along to the advertised viewing. Homeowners receive guidance around hosting and compliance with Covid rules
  • Private Viewing – by arrangement with the homeowner, or online booking system provided
  • Property Information – you will be provided with a digital link to all the property information, including brochure and homeowner declaration
  • At the viewing – the homeowner or other knowledgeable person is on hand to answer any questions about the property
  • Making an offer – Expressions of Interest Forms are sent in the Property Information Pack. This forms a non-binding agreement on submission and acceptance, and constitutes the basis of a formal contract to be drafted by the buyer of vendor solicitor. YouSell can guide you on this process.
  • Due diligence (if any) carried as normal
  • SOLD! The property is yours!
  • YouSell provide on-call help throughout the sale and purchase, right through to settlement

“I wish you the very best with your search to secure and love, the property of your dreams”
