EasySell: Property sales in financial distress

If your property bond is at risk of legal action, EasySell can help to sell your property, settle your bond and rehabilitate your credit record.

Keeping your head above water in today’s economic climate is difficult. And for many people, a bond is their largest monthly debt instalment. That is why it can be devastating when you go through financial difficulty. This can be compounded when you find your credit record suffering.

But there’s no reason to wait until it’s too late. It is possible to avoid foreclosure by selling your property, settling your bond and rehabilitating your finances. EasySell helps you put your finances back on the road to recovery. 

How it works

Our team of property specialists are here to help with every step of the process:

  • We assess your home and identify a favourable price based on local property trends
  •  We market your property for you through a large media network including the MyRoof website
  •  We work with approved estate agents in your area to sell your home at the best possible price
  • We manage transfer and conveyancing on your behalf
  • Once your property is sold, we give a capped fee (5%) to the estate agent and settle your bond and all additional fees from the sale (this can include all requirements such as the electrical certificate and levies) 
  • If there is still money outstanding on your bond, we will arrange an interest-free loan for you with a 5- to 10-year payment term
  • We also offer up to 10% discount on the outstanding balance of your bond 

Benefits

  • You avoid the sales process through a sheriff and keep control of the sale of your property, and you make the final decision on any offers
  • You get more for your property, achieving an average of 80% property market value instead of the average 40% that results from auction. 
  • If the shortfall is covered from the sale, your negative credit rating will be removed
  • A cheaper, pre-arranged commission is agreed with our estate agents, adding more money to your bond amount
  • You get a better price for your property and the benefit of sales, marketing and legal assistance
  • If your property is auctioned, you will be liable for the full shortfall. We offer a discount and reduced interest on any shortfall that remains after the sale
  • Expenses like rates and taxes, compliance certificates and levies can be paid from your bond account and will form part of your shortfall if applicable. 

It can be very difficult to make the decision to sell your home. But the EasySell team is here to alleviate the anxiety. It’s your chance to avoid financial distress with equity and start fresh with minimal long-term debt.
