FAQs

What is Nesters?

Nesters is a platform that makes it possible to buy or sell your home more efficiently. We use cutting edge technology to save on overheads and transfer those savings onto you. Using our app and the help of our qualified team, you’ll be led through every step, giving you the guidance, support and service you need to sell your home for the best price in the shortest amount of time. We’re always a phone call away, working behind the scenes to prepare your professional marketing, the relevant paperwork, negotiate the best price and much more.

Who created Nesters?

Nesters was created by professionals from the real estate, software and finance industries. We’ve created an easy-to- use mobile app that takes buyers and sellers from listing to sale, with the help of expert professional negotiators. This is how we get you the best price on your property  in the shortest amount of time.

How do I know what my home is worth?

To give you an estimate on the price of your home, Nesters uses data from leading real estate sources such as Core RP data, REIWA and recent sales data in your suburb. Nesters only provides you with an estimate of the selling value of your home, not a market appraisal.

Will my property transaction be overseen by a licensed real estate agent?

Your Nester’s transaction coordinator is a licensed real estate agent.

Why are Nesters’ fees much less than those of traditional real estate agents?

A typical real estate agent charges a fee equal to 2.5% of the selling price (that’s $12,500 for a $500,000 home plus vendor paid advertising. The Nesters fee is typically only 1.5% (that’s 7,500 for a $500,000 home) plus vendor paid advertising. Nesters charge such a low fee because we swap expensive commission rates with tools that streamline the real estate process.

I need a mortgage to buy my home. Can you help me with the application and approval process?

We are not a credit provider. We have an affiliation with a finance mortgage company that pledges the best rate for Nesters clients. When you’re ready to start the mortgage application process, we’ll introduce you to an account executive who’ll walk you through the application process.

I saw a Nesters listing on Realestate.com.au. How do I schedule a viewing?

Download the Nesters app, complete our quick onboarding process, and select the home you wish to see. From here, tap on the “Request Showing” button at the bottom of the listing screen and select the day and time that you’d like to see the home. Once the seller confirms your appointment, you’ll receive a notification that it has been set up and one of our friendly staff will always be on standby to help.

I'm planning to sell my home. How do I get started with Nesters?

Get started by downloading the Nesters app. The app will ask you a few questions designed to verify your identity and address and then it asks you to provide the address of the home you wish to sell.

Nesters will then ask you to type in only the basic information about your home, and at least one photo. Once this simple process is complete, the app delivers a beautifully formatted, professional listing. Nesters will contact you within 24 hours to schedule a professional photographer and arrange for one of our expert professionals to meet with you before your listing goes live to the leading real estate portals and your marketing campaign starts.

How will Nesters market my property?

Once you’ve signed the listing authority and paid your personalised marketing advertising, Nesters will arrange professional photography of your home and create a sales board and advertising campaign. Your listing will then appear on all the major real estate websites and social media. The minimum marketing package also includes flyers, a social media campaign, and a letterbox drop of the suburbs surrounding your home. The optional additions like virtual tours and 3D floor plans will go even further to sell your home.

I'm a seller who is already being represented by a real estate agent. Can I still list my home using Nesters?

No. Nesters utilizes an exclusive listing authority, so we can’t provide our service to sellers who already have a real estate agent. Nesters is a tool for unrepresented sellers who are interested in taking control of the sales process, using the support of Nesters and our expert professional negotiators.

Why use Nesters to sell my property?

Nesters differ from traditional real estate agents in a number of terrific ways. Firstly, our service provides a way for you to sell for a fraction of the cost of traditional agents with highly trained professional negotiators working with you all the way. Secondly, our transparent, streamlined processes mean you can sell quicker and without the headaches. If you have any questions, our support team are just a phone call away.

What are the costs to list and sell with Nesters?

To create a listing with Nesters, you only pay the commencement fee which is the price of your marketing package. In other words, we only charge a 1.5% (inc GST) fee once your home is sold, making us much cheaper than a traditional real estate agent.

If I list with the Nesters app, how will my listing get to potential buyers?

Our marketing packages, expert property guides and professional photographers will help you create a listing that is posted to Australia’s leading sites within 48 hours. These sites include realestate.com.au, domain.com.au and reiwa.com.au. In addition, buyers can see listings through our app and on our website. These days, 90% of home searches begin online, so you know we’re providing the best possible exposure for your home.
