“Without SnowOnly, trying to advertise a property for sale through the Japanese real estate system would have been a nightmare. It is virtually impossible to get a Japanese real estate agent who is able to sell my property!”
This is just a small part of the feedback from one of our private sellers, Stephen Dew, who recently sold 2 properties through SnowOnly.
Stephen contacted us because he tried every other alternative to sell his ski properties with no success. He signed up for a FREE SnowOnly account and 6 months later he had sold 2 properties from leads generated on the site. All of this with no fees!
We’re delighted to share with you Stephen’s experience with SnowOnly here:
"Advertising my properties on SnowOnly has been a very good experience. Much better than what I had expected. I would have no hesitation in recommending other people to list on this site. Overall, I would give it a 5-star rating.
SnowOnly took the information I gave them, constructed the ad and formatted the listing for me. They were extremely helpful and were very prompt in any communication I had with them. During the paid listing time SnowOnly generated some very good leads. From those leads that were passed on to me, I entered negotiations with two or three potential buyers and simply exchanged further information as requested with the others, about a dozen or so.
From the leads I entered negotiations with, I was able to sell two of my properties, so it was a very high success rate. I think this is because people looking on this site are genuine buyers. SnowOnly was an excellent advertising site and through their exposure I was able to achieve success in selling my properties.
Without this service, trying to advertise a property for sale through the Japanese real estate system would have been a nightmare. It was virtually impossible to get a Japanese real estate agent who is able to sell my property! Prior to advertising on SnowOnly, I contacted a number of real estate agents in Japan. We did online searches to see what properties the agents had and quickly found out that it was very hard to find anything about any property and they were very lax in replying.
The contact I had with SnowOnly was excellent and the answered all my questions very quickly. They let me know the timing and progress of the listing and provided all the information I needed to go live and monitor the advertisement. They followed up to make sure I had received the specific requests from potential buyers and kept in contact with me to see what if any progress there had been and whether they could be of any further assistance.
The fees and charges I was able to save by advertising through SnowOnly were considerable. In Japan, a real estate agent will charge both the buyer and the seller their commission on any sale and they don’t advertise for free! Depending on the sale price, it can easily go into the thousands of dollars for both the buyer and the seller if the property is sold!
In short, my experience with SnowOnly has been great.
They took the information I gave them, constructed the ad and formatted the listing for me. They were extremely helpful and were very prompt in any communication I had with them. During the paid listing time SnowOnly generated some very good quality leads and I did not even need to look at my ad or check on it because I was receiving leads and communicating with potential buyers, so I knew it was working and people were seeing my property.
I am very much looking forward to working with SnowOnly in the future. I now have 2 more properties I wish to sell. They have not been advertised yet, but with the interest SnowOnly generated, I already have a lead on a new potential buyer.”
Feedback like this is great, not only because it’s gratifying to hear we’re doing a good job. This kind of review lets us know that things like our property alerts and investment guides give buyers all the information they need to invest, while our skill at matching property to purchasers means minimum fuss for sellers.
