FindMyAgent acts as a service provider to vendors, recommending an agent or agents for the vendor to meet and to consider as the agent or agents to sell the property or land. There is no cost to the vendor and no obligation to meet with our work with any recommended agent or agents.
In addition, FindMyAgent offers complementary Facebook marketing to the Vendor if the property is subsequently listed with a recommended agent or agents. This information is collated using marketing material sourced from the agent’s current advertising. Also, these campaigns direct the user to the agent as the point of contact for any property enquiries. Apart from this Facebook marketing, FindMyAgent does not provide any real estate services.
Our recommended Agent has agreed in advance (before the date of listing) that FindMyAgent will set up a Facebook campaign on behalf of the Agent, using material solely sourced from the agent’s current advertising. Costs incurred are covered by FindMyAgent.
If a vendor enters into a contract or agency agreement with an agent or agents that FindMyAgent has introduced, then that agreement or contract is with the Agent or Agency, not with FindMyAgent. You engage with any Agent at your own risk and in using the services of FindMyAgent, accept that FindMyAgent is not responsible for the fulfilment of the agreement or the timeliness or quality of the agreement. This responsibility lies with the Agent.
If there is any dispute in relation to the agreement entered into between the Vendor and the Real Estate Agent, this matter is between these parties. FindMyAgent has no involvement in any such agreement.
All agent recommendations made by FindMyAgent are made after careful analysis of sales in the area of the vendor’s property or land, and research into agents working in this area. Every care is taken to ensure that FindMyAgent’s recommendations are based on facts However we cannot guarantee the completeness, quality or accuracy of data available to us. We encourage you to exercise a high standard of care before entering into an agreement with an Agent.
