Episode 82: Dave Stewart – Transparent and time saving transactions

“When the buying urge strikes and you have someone who’s decided they’re going to do something, you don’t want a time gap. Giving someone the ability to act on that urge when they have it is extraordinarily powerful, and gets even more powerful in a market that tightens up.”

In this week’s edition of the Elevate podcast, Samantha McLean catches up AREAs 2018 Award Winner for Game Changer of the Year David Stewart. David is both an agent and business owner with more than 20 years experience as well as the brains behind Market Buy, an online offer management system that is making it as easy for consumers to buy houses  – just like they’re buying their groceries!

On my last trip to Melbourne, I sought out David to find out more about the product, how it’s helping agents in a tighter market and what’s on the innovation radar for the future.

In this podcast we cover:

  • what Market Buy is and how to use it
  • how it can help agents in a tightening market
  • allowing consumers to ‘bid’ on property when they want to (day or night!)
  • how Market Buy is different to auction, and how David works with auctioneers in his own business
  • the future of Market Buy
