WHAT IS RNS?
RNS is a multi-listing platform for Real Estate companies situated in the Benoni, Boksburg, and Kempton Park Areas.
There is one listing agent who has the rights to advertise and market your property with the support of the majority of the top agencies in these areas who have direct access to sell your home through the RNS system.
As a Seller, you will only have one listing appointment, which saves time, hassle and tidying the house more often than necessary for viewing and for photographing.
By placing the property on the RNS system through our agency, the Property is automatically listed and all details are conveyed to over thirty Real Estate Companies in the Benoni area and approximately forty five in the Boksburg area. With a written exclusive RNS mandate, the Seller agrees to have their property distributed to all Real Estate companies within the zone where the property is located. Certain properties like plots, farms and small holdings require wider exposure to sell and are distributed to all zones for the benefit of the Seller.
The RNS listing Property Practitioner (Monarch) will be responsible for the marketing of your property. The home will be advertised regularly on our vast internet based social media platforms and property portals including Privateproperty.co.za, Property24.co.za, Homefinder.co.za and on our own website in full colour, during the mandate period. The listing Property Practitioner will host show houses if it is deemed to be beneficial. Print media advertising such as the Benoni City Times may also be used. RNS listed properties enjoy greater exposure not only because of its distribution to multiple Real Estate companies but also their prominence on the RNS HomeFinder portal and other portals.
We will also be able to provide you with specific statistics on portal viewings and enquiries as this is managed by one Agency and not several. When advertised by several Agents you can’t get a true reflection on the activity as the enquiries are split between several Agencies.
TEAMWORK & CO-OPERATION
Your RNS listing Property Practitioner works closely with all the RNS member Property Practitioners who may be working with potential buyers, to expedite the sale of your property and ensure your needs are met.
PROFESSIONAL DATA RECORDING & RECORDS OF ANY AMENDMENTS
All the individual details as well as salient features of the home including security and access detail, fixtures and fittings, special attributes, conveniences and the benefits of living here are all data captured and hence there should be no lack of information available for the Property Practitioners to pass on to a prospective purchaser.
Apart from this the possibility of making errors is minimized when using one Practitioner to upload the correct detail. Property Practitioners have 24 hour access to listed properties via a range of digital communication platforms created by RNS, such as our online site and the mobile companion app.
As the price and all financial details are captured by our office and then uploaded, all the RNS Property Practitioners will have the same price eliminating discrepancies.
The RNS listing agent will, within a maximum of 12 days of the listing date, conduct an open hour, where all the RNS agents are invited to view the property and give price guidance by evaluating it. By conducting an open hour the Property Practitioners are introduced to the property quickly, and thereafter are in a position to introduce prospective purchasers.
The RNS system gives you, the Seller, the opportunity of obtaining commitment and service from Monarch the marketing agency, maximizing exposure while not being restricted to one company as in the case of a Sole Agency.
Every property on the RNS system is discussed and monitored regularly to identify and consider or rectify any potential issues that may impact on the sale of the home.
An Activity report will be left at the home and every Property Practitioner who shows the home will complete the report. By doing this we are able to ascertain how much activity there has been, access the saleability and confirm we are on track to achieve the desired result.
Apart from having all the above benefits, the good news is that there is no additional cost to using one Agency (7.5% plus V.A.T) and is obviously only paid once the home has been sold and transferred successfully.
Depending on the price category and other factors we do have the ability to offer preferential rates in certain circumstances.
RNS is a system designed to work for you by ensuring responsibility, professionalism and accuracy while maximizing exposure.
