Real Estate Agents
Realise the true advantages of deposit bonds: Open your listings to a broader range of buyers, and achieve higher sales with Deposit Assure.
Deposit bonds make it easier for your clients to buy and sell their property.
However, we often hear feedback from real estate agents that they either don’t like or don’t accept deposit bonds in lieu of a cash deposit on an unconditional contract of sale.
We’re here to change that.
Deposit bonds aren’t new, but they are mysterious. And most people, real estate agents included, don’t realise their benefits during the property buying and selling process.
Here’s what you need to know
Deposit Assure bonds provide more assurance to you, and your vendor, than any other deposit bonds; and in some cases, are safer than a cash deposit.
Deposit Assure bonds are underwritten by QBE Insurance (Australia) Limited. QBE is one of Australia’s largest insurers and is rated A+ by leading international credit rating agencies.
This means that a vendor can accept a Deposit Assure bond, with the comfort of knowing they are safe and reliable in the event they need to make a claim.
And that’s not all. Deposit bonds have many other benefits to help you and your vendors:
✓ Deposit Assure bonds open up your listings to a wider market of prospective purchasers
✓ Deposit Assure bonds guarantee your vendor’s deposit will be paid if the purchaser defaults, and the contract is rescinded
✓ Deposit bonds are excluded from bankruptcy provisions, meaning it cannot be frozen or recalled should a purchaser enter into bankruptcy. Unlike a cash deposit.
Work with Deposit Assure for peace of mind
