What is Yelsa?

Yelsa is a new way to buy and sell property easily and discretely without the traditional headaches and huge expense. Sellers can run the Yelsa Buyer Match and browse registered Buyers in their region and invite Buyers that match their criteria. No more painful open homes or big budget marketing campaigns.

Buyers register the type of property they are looking for and wait to receive exclusive invitations to view properties before they reach the market. Every element of Buying or Selling a house is captured from start to finish using the app’s comprehensive forms and checklists. 

From this point, forget everything you know about traditional Real Estate. Yelsa is an entirely revolutionary concept. Yelsa embraces the future, reduces costs, is efficient, and better for the environment.

What benefits will I see from choosing to sell a property through Yelsa?

Traditionally Real Estate Agents charge high commissions to sell your property. With Yelsa Sellers can see significant financial savings, and enjoy the luxury of choosing how involved in the sale process they would like to be, from a completely self managed experience, through to a full Agent service.

How do I sign up and join Yelsa?

If you are thinking of selling your house, download the Yelsa app from Google Play or the App Store and register as a Seller for free.  Run the Yelsa Buyer Match and you can easily view all the matched Buyers in your area. If you think a Buyer sounds right for your property, invite them to view. With Yelsa you are in control.

Is there a joining fee?

Yelsa is free to download and register as a Seller. Sellers can create as many Selling Profiles as they require. They can upgrade a profile at any time in order to obtain further benefits not available with the free profile for a one-off fee of $129.00 (equivalent to one print media advertisement). This unlocks a second level of each Buyer’s Profile, and reveals more specific buying requirements, such as wheelchair access or specific school zones which might rule out your property. This additional buyer information gives you the ability to contact, review and evaluate the Buyers you invite to your home.

What if my property is already listed with a Real Estate Agent or listed for private sale on another website?

Yelsa welcomes properties which are listed for sale privately. If your property is already on the market, explore opportunities with your Agent to also list with Yelsa.

How does Yelsa find the right Buyers for my Property?

Yelsa’s operating systems are built on AWS, one of the world’s most advanced app technology platforms.  Intelligent programming scans data and finds matches based on percentages, which sends notifications to the homeseller and the buyer, advising of the match.

Does Yelsa provide For Sale signs?

Yes, you can request two 600mm x 900mm Yelsa high profile sale boards with your property’s unique identifying code displayed.  Extra or alternative sized sale boards are available strictly by arrangement and may be subject to additional charges.   Note – the automated Yelsa signboard delivery system will not be functioning prior to the 20th June 2020.  In the interim, sign delivery will be manually arranged by a Yelsa representative.

What happens if someone wants to buy my property?

Yelsa is designed to help you self manage the entire process, or you can enlist the help of one of our Approved Agents. Agents can conduct viewings on your behalf, prepare contracts and manage negotiations, ensuring you maximise the sale price of your home. You can engage an Agent at any stage. Yelsa has negotiated up front on behalf of every User, a set fee of 1% (+GST). No extra costs guaranteed.

Yelsa always recommends you seek legal advice.  If you have engaged an Agent then ask the purchaser to communicate directly with the Agent.  If you are managing the negotiations yourself, now is the time to contact your lawyer to assist you with the preparation of the appropriate sale and purchase agreement.

How do I know if an Agent has accepted my request for their services?

You will receive an email notification from Yelsa once your Agent has accepted your invitation to provide professional services. They have 24 hours to respond. Yelsa also sends an email reminder notification to Agents after 12 hours.

What happens to my listing once the process is over?

With Yelsa you create a unique profile which will always be available to you. Once you are registered, you can create either a buying or selling profile at any time. If you are no longer selling a property, your specific listing will be removed.

When you sell your property (or if you’re no longer looking for a buyer) you edit the property profile and mark the status as sold or withdrawn.  It will then be archived.
