Edge Real Estate recently sold a Duffy, ACT, property to the buyers before they had even come through the home.

The buyers, David and Carmel Houghton, who were in the USA at the time, purchased the property remotely after viewing a professionally produced and narrated streamed video over the internet.

Contracts and building reports were also delivered to the buyers online and the deposit for exchange of contracts was paid into the Edge Real Estate trust account through online banking. Finally contracts were then exchanged by David and Carmel’s Australian conveyancing solicitors.

Steven Thomas, Managing Director of Edge Real Estate, said, "Real Estate is going through an exciting transformation at the moment and Edge Real Estate intends to be at the forefront of that transformation by utilising these new technologies to deliver even better services to our customers.”

He went on to explain, “Edge really is selling to a global market and we intend to take that one step further in the near future with live online video auctions and bidding.”

Buyers David and Carmel Houghton said, "Edge's online marketing was so good what else was there to see?”  David and Carmel have subsequently inspected the home and were thrilled with their purchase.
