Vendor Advocacy services – Web portal or Hands-on? What’s the difference?

Vendor Advocacy Services

Having a good hands-on Vendor Advocate working with you when you sell your home is an acknowledged route to a better result for your property sale.

And the popularity of Vendor Advocacy services continues to grow. In the wake of this, a new stream of automated Vendor Advocacy services have appeared, targeting home sellers.

These are website portals offering a click-through process for selecting a Real Estate Agent to sell your home.

How do web portal based Vendor Advocacy services work?

Web portal based Vendor Advocacy services are an automated process. The site will get you to click on a few information gathering questions.

The web portal will provide you with some generic facts and figures about properties for sale in your area. The web portal will then direct your enquiry to a few ’recommended’ Real Estate Agents.

The main focus for the web portal is connecting you as quickly as possible with a Real Estate Agent in order to get a finders fee. This fee is extracted from the Real Estate Agent, coming out of the commission the Agent receives from your home sale.

Web portal based Vendor Advocacy services basically offer little more than a phone directory search, directing a home seller to the nearest big Real Estate Agent.

For the simple algorithm process of finding the most active Real Estate Agents in your area the portal will extract a commission from the Real Estate Agent (Referral Authority Fee) costing you thousands.

What kind of information do web portal based Vendor Advocacy services provide?

After keying in your suburb, the web portal will provide a tally of all the Real Estate agents providing services to your suburb. Generally this means dozens.

The web portal will usually provide some more specific information;

• a list of recent listings and sales in your area,
• a general indication of price movement in your suburb,
• an averaged Real Estate Agent sale commission for the area.

The web portal for Vendor Advocacy Services will then recommend a short list of the ‘top’ Real Estate Agents in your area. Based on sales volume.

Snippets of generic information like this are freely available on leading Real Estate websites (like Realestate.com.au or Domain.com.au or even Ratemyagent.com.au).

What makes ‘hands-on’ Vendor Advocacy services different?

Hands-on Vendor Advocacy Services provide more experience, more analysis, and more of the important detailed advice you need to maximise your selling price.

Selling your home is one of the most important processes you can go through and brings a major opportunity to benefit from all the work, effort and capital you have invested in the home up to this point.
