whO ARE WE

We’re not your regular cookie cutter agency. We are frank and forthright and march to our own tune.

McBeath Real Estate was originally established in 1964 as an independent agency. Each year we discreetly sell hundreds of properties without all the unnecessary hype.

We may not be as well-known as other agencies, that’s because we don’t make a big fuss by plastering agent photos everywhere. Instead, we’re straight shooters and prefer to focus simply on our clients property, not our agents. In fact, we achieve most our results privately, before the public sees it.

WHY CHOOSE US

We find matching buyers to your property – at no cost to you.

We don’t appear on nor need to use RealEstate.com.au nor Domain.com.au so you don’t need to pay for advertising.

If we can’t achieve a great sales price for you in 4 weeks – you can end our services without obligation or cost.

Billboards, bus seats, news papers, flyers, and bloated websites are all smoke and mirrors rubbish designed to promote agencies plain and simple.

DID YOU KNOW

Properties sold off market are increasing dramatically in popularity. People are preferring to sell discreetly at the same time save on ridiculous advertising costs.

SOME CASES STUDIES

Below are some case studies on how we have helped different customers sell their property.

The Classic Scenario

A Brisbane couple came to us after having tried a well known agency.

At first they we skeptical as they could not find anything about us on the web. Of course we explained, that was intentional and in fact was most likely the reason why their property had not sold.

You see they engaged an agent that told them what they wanted to hear just to get their listing.

By the time this agents time was up, the property was stale and buyers had lost interest.

Worse, they had spent nearly $10,000 on marketing that in essence did nothing other than promote the agent and agencies brand.

This is a classic scenario where agencies tell you “you can’t sell a secret” type of rubbish statement. That’s all very well, but they’re not the ones just wasted nearly $10,000 out their pocket.

Fortunately all was not lost as we could still help. We evaluated their property and what market it would most suit. Then we commenced our own property marketing and within 2 weeks, that’s right 2 weeks, we sold for well over market value.

To Make Over Or Not

Most agencies will tell you to spend money doing up your property prior to selling it.

Well it depends on whom your target market is.

We sold a “return serviceman’s home” as is, with not a lick of paint.

Our client was told by numerous agents you must get some landscaping done, repaint inside and out, attend to a minor roof repair and so. Oh and yes, pay for advertising on top.

Bollocks we said!

It’s about knowing the market and who the likely buyers are. And we sold this property for 20% more than what other agents had said it would fetch.

And without the owner spending one cent.

The Best Price

A popular response you will hear from agents is that you will only achieve the best price via an auction process.

A client of ours also expressed this same concern of not being able to achieve the best price without an auction. They put their trust in our process and here’s what happened.

We had two potential buyers that were interested in their property. Neither of them new each other, nor could see or speak with each other. But each of them new there was another buyer who wanted their property.

Often with auctions these days, many are passed in as buyers are more shrewd. So the pressure cooker environment is not always effective as many buyers wait and make an offer after it is passed in giving them a buying edge.

However, whenever you have two buyers that cannot see or know how much the other buy wants that same property, you generate a fear of loss every time. Even with only one buyer this effect works well. No longer can the buyer see other buyers at an auction NOT bid. We of course fuel the sense of urgency and fear of loss.

And it’s their own imagination that does the rest.

And that is exactly what occurred and we achieved a record sales price. Without hoards of people swarming through their property like you would on a weekly basis with pre-auction open homes.

AMAZING!

The sales price we got was amazing. We had more buyers wanting our property than I thought possible. Just amazing results. No complaints at all.

I. Ward / Hawthorne

We saved heaps on what we would have paid with other agencies and got the price we wanted. Great work Mcbeath team.

S. Portas / Stafford

I was told I needed to sell via auction to get the best price. Not so. We got a great price and in less than 3 weeks. Wow, very impressed.

R. Huddle / Albion

VERY HAPPY!

WI own 11 investment properties and have sold 4 with Mcbeath as they always get the very best prices with the least amount cost to me.

A. Stevens / Milton

VERY DISCREET!

I must say i was very happy when we didn’t have to have a whole lot of people wander through our home. The whole process was fabulous.

A. Wilkson / Coorparoo

FANTASTIC!

We had tried 3 other agents. The other agents were all typical hype. But McBeath did their job with no fuss and achieved a fantastic price.
