Private Property – Where houses are sold!

Private Property – Where houses are sold!

Private Property South Africa
Mark Coetzee

We have known for a long time that there is no better place to sell property than on Private Property – but don’t take our word for it. This is what our Agents have to say:

“You can say from my experience I had 95% plus buyers/sellers coming from private property and the internet.”

Antoinette Viljoen – RealNet Randburg

“Private Property is working unbelievably well for us. Last week I sold a house in Glen Marais that was listed by me on Private Property. 2 Days ago, I sold a plot (in the rain!) and signed the offer yesterday. Tomorrow, I’m taking a client to another property, also off a Private Property advertisement. One of our other agents was away on holiday, so I took her clients out to a Private Property listed home, and we’re signing the agreement tonight. The first offer we received on a QuickSell mandate was sold off the photos available on Private Property. Unfortunately, the client couldn’t get a bond, so we signed the second offer shortly thereafter. Yes, Private Property definitely works for us!”

Magda Stoffberg – RealNet Glen Erasmia, Kempton Park

“We are on the point of going over our 75th slot on Private Property – so Yes, it really works!”

Fransiska Schutte

“I was very sceptical at first, but I made use of the Private Property package to secure an Exclusive Mandate valued at R3.9 million.

• I received an enquiry from Private Property for an apartment valued at R1.2 million and sold a house in Welgevonden worth R1.3 million to the buyer.

• I received an enquiry from Private Property for an apartment valued at R1.4 million but sold him an apartment (107m²) for R3.65 million!

So as you can see, my Private Property subscriptions for 2010 are paid for. A ¼ page advert in the local paper set me back about R1400 per week…with no results.

I rest my case.

Shawn Pieterse – RealNet Stellenbosch, Western Cape

“Our sales from Private Property in the last three months are as follows:

November – 1 sale worth R650 000;

December – 2 sales worth R2035000 combined;

January – 3 sales worth R4980000 combined.

Calls from potential buyers over the last 3 months totalled 38 from Private Property, with January the best month at 20 calls. We are thus far very happy.”

Koos Pretorius, RealNet Bronkhorstspruit, Rayton and Cullinan

“I decided to list properties on and the response is phenomenal.

Within the first month I received 3 offers on properties! Compared to publishing and taking in consideration the cost, it is a must to advertise on !”

Conrad Pretorius


“The exposure of a property on a property website enables the Estate Agent and Seller to reach buyers nationally and also internationally. The amazing results currently – we are getting international buyers, mostly from the UK, United States, Canada and Australia buying property. I have also experienced sellers contacting Agents on their website to help with the marketing of their property in South Africa.”
