Western Cape

Situated in the south western corner of South Africa, the Western Cape is one of the country’s most popular locations and destinations. Boasting the exquisite allure of the Winelands, the Karoo and the splendour of the Garden Route, the province also houses Cape Town – the Mother City – a haven for its culturally practised and tasteful residents.

KwaZulu-Natal

Also known as the Garden province as a result of its coastal sub-tropical climate, KwaZulu-Natal has always been one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations. While the coastline is dotted with picturesque small towns, the province’s interior consists mainly of inspiring and spectacular rolling hills.

Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape includes such diverse landscapes – from the arid Karoo to the wet and windy Grahamstown – that any person can find their nirvana here. This province also boasts South Africa’s only snow skiing resort, which is situated in the Southern Drakensberg.

Free State

With Bloemfontein as its capital city, the Free State is found in the very heart of South Africa. The lovely climate and fertile land have made the province a thriving agricultural community. The Free State’s chief tourist attraction is the Golden Gate Highlands National Park nestled in the foothills of the breathtaking Maluti Mountains.

Mpumalanga

Meaning literally “the place where the sun rises”, Mpumalanga is divided into scenic highveld and savannah lowveld. Main attractions in the province include the Kruger National Park, the Sudwala Caves and the Blyde River Canyon.

Limpopo

As the northernmost province in South Africa, Limpopo shares its borders with Botswana on the west, Mozambique on the east and Zimbabwe in the north. Limpopo’s proximity to these African countries has gifted it with the beauty and contrasting landscapes that has made it a favourite among travellers and adventure seekers.

North West

The North West province is a picture of authentic African bushveldt beauty that encourages adventure. From the quiet beauty of the Pilansberg Nature Reserve to the bold decadence of Sun City, the North West offers both culture and comfort.

Northern Cape

The Northern Cape is the biggest and most sparsely populated province in South Africa, dominated by the Karoo Basin. This natural gem includes the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, the Augrabies Falls as well as the famous Namaqualand region.

0% Commission *

MyRoof does not charge any commission to sell your property online. What we mean with no commission is exactly that – no fees are ever payable to us at any stage for the FREE listing option. As we do not charge commission, you can accept a lower offer but still get the same amount of money in your pocket. This will result in more interested buyers in your property.

Unlimited Photos *

You may upload as many photos as you wish onto our website. This will help you in selling your property faster. The more photos, the better idea a buyer gets of your property. Remember that photos can give the buyer a desire to own your property! You can also add the best things your property has to offer on the extra notes section. Buyers enjoy looking at the additional notes to make a decision on whether to view the property or not

Floor plans

All privately owned properties on our website have floor plans in the main centers. Just imagine if you were a buyer and could get an idea of the layout of a property even before visiting the home! Not only will the buyer get an idea of how big the property is, but he or she will also get the chance to view the sizes of the individual rooms and see where they might want to add or remove a wall. The buyer will also have the opportunity to compare the sizes and asking prices of different properties per square meter. Lastly, the floor plan gives the prospective buyer a clear understanding of how the property looks as the arrows on the floor plan show from which angle each photo was taken. The buyer now gets a real feel for the property and can immediately see if this is what they were looking for. This means that only serious buyers will make offers on your property.

Alerts *

On top of the unlimited photos and the added floor plan, we also offer you a large client base where alerts are sent out to buyers who are looking for a property like yours. Alerts are sent to prospective buyers who have indicated that they are interested in property in a specific area at a specific price range. Alerts will also be sent out should you lower your asking price or arrange a show day with us. This has been found to work well to communicate with many potential buyers at once. And it also keeps buyers interested in your property!

Until sold

We will keep your property on our website until the day it is sold – whether this will take a day or a year. MyRoof has hundreds of thousands of property buyers and send out tens of thousands of alerts daily to keep these buyers updated on new properties they might be interested in buying.

LETS SAY YOU REALLY WANT TO SELL

Estate agents dreamWe're all convinced we're in a buyer's market now. Fine. So we're saying that property buyers can make the rules and enjoy the dropping prices while the vast supply of sellers scurry to attract the few buyers out there.

We do however tend to think that all sellers have to sell. Sure there are plenty of people in trouble out there that has to sell urgently, but there are even more, that want to sell but doesn't have to sell. Let's just ponder this for a second: I see properties up for sale everywhere I drive sporting a large number of real estate agents' 'For Sale' boards outside. This morning I counted seven of these boards outside the home of Mrs Wazowski, my neighbour that is selling her place -a jagged little forest of boards with Estate Agents' mugshots greeting me when I leave my driveway.

This forest of smiling Estate Agents staring at the passer-by actually tells us three important things about Mrs Wazowski's situation:

1)      She is set on selling. Other than the unaesthetic driveway a seller like Mrs Wazowski needs to swallow, one would not have an army of Estate Agents and their clients tread mud into your living room every Sunday because you want to 'test the market'

2)      She has been set on selling...and this has been the case for some time now. Most people would initially get one or two estate agents to market their property. After a while, another agent will spot the boards outside and list the property as well, adding his/her own board to the growing little forest on the front lawn. Thus - many boards, lots of time passed.

3)      She is not accepting the offers the agents bring to the table. With seven or more estate agents marketing a specific property one will get a couple of offers. But since the boards are staying, we have to assume none of them made Mrs Wazowski smile. The problem is that after Mr Agent took his cut, Mrz Wazowski will not get enough money in her pocket to cover her new townhouse as well as her extended visit to family in Poland.

This brings Mrs Wazowski and Mr Agent to a type of 'stale mate'. Many sellers out there are exactly at this point, they really want to sell but they do not have to sell as a matter of life or death. Like Mrs. Wazowski they have thrown themselves at Real Estate agents and is now patiently sitting back, waiting, for as long as it takes to sell at a price they are still comfortable with after Mr Agent took his cut. The chances of this happening are small as everyone knows, and the Mrs Wazowski's out there normally just tend to postpone that trip to Poland until they get the Offer price they want.

Many of these sellers do not yet know how the Private Sale option can break this stale mate, arguing that they would rather not pay a listing fee to a company like MyRoof or Private Property or any of these online Private Sale guys, as a sale is not guaranteed. The argument that these sellers tend to forget is that they are set on selling, and since their only current exposure to the market is via an agent their imminent sale will cost them money. Lots of it.

Selling privately online will give Mrs Wazowski two options she does not have with real estate agents: She can either sell faster or save a lot of money or benefit by a mixture of both. In Mrs Wazowski's case, she can play for both. Since she is not in that big a hurry she can decide to list her property for the same amount as the Estate Agents do, and pay herself the commission so to speak, and when she starts getting a bit more anxious to sell, she can start dropping her online price, sell faster and still get the same amount in her own pocket as by selling through the agent. If the small cost of listing online still bugs her, she can always just add it to her selling price and earn it back....no one will notice  :)
