How PropertyFox Ensures Sellers’ Safety

Feb 26, 2018 | All, News

We take safety very seriously.

Safety is of the utmost importance here at PropertyFox. Showing your home is stressful enough as it is without the added worry of security. We thought we’d take a minute to explain how we conduct our safety screenings and checks prior to viewings – just to set your mind at ease.

Typically, traditional agents send out the address of a show home to their list of names without any checks at all. Additionally, many show-houses are completely open to the public, meaning anyone can walk right in. One agent is simply unable to keep tabs on every person in the home, which means they can’t look out for possible pickpocketing or other unwanted incidents. If you choose to sell your home privately, you are usually in the same vulnerable position.

At PropertyFox, we conduct security checks on interested buyers prior to disclosing the location of your home or scheduling a viewing. We check the IDs of potential viewers against the ThisIsMe database, which taps into the Department of Home Affairs, for any noticeable infringements so that we can keep track of exactly who comes into your home. We will only arrange a viewing if the interested parties have been thoroughly verified through this compulsory procedure.

Additionally, whether you are a buyer or a seller, your phone number will never be disclosed. Our property managers arrange and confirm viewings so that you don’t have to deal with awkward phone calls, overly eager parties or someone harassing you. As a seller, you will only come into contact with a potential buyer once they have been filtered through our system, meaning that you don’t need to worry about your safety or the safety of your home.

So sell your home with PropertyFox and gain peace of mind for your safety. As an added bonus we only charge 1,5% commission! Click here to list your property with PropertyFox now!
