Why privacy isn't the only reason celebrities buy and sell off-market

July 11, 2024

When Rebel Wilson listed her gorgeous home in Sydney’s inner-west for sale in 2022, she surprised many agents and experts in the industry. 

Typically, local celebrities like Glenn McGrath, Nicole Kidman and Chris Hemsworth buy and sell their property off-market, as do many international celebrities who are desperate to buy into the Australian lifestyle

For obvious reasons, celebrities prefer to keep their business transactions private. This is why they rely on the support of "chosen ones" or "insiders", a trusted group of property specialists who offer discretion and an established network of agents, conveyancers and other service providers that keep them informed of any new opportunities.  

Networking is also a big priority. These industry experts always have their ear to the ground and are the first to hear about new properties to the market or prospective buyers on the hunt for the high-end properties their clients sell. Often, celebrities want to purchase with secrecy and non-disclosure agreements and buying off-market guarantees those requirements.

You don’t have to be an A-list celebrity to benefit from buying off-market

Fortunately, you don't have to be an A-list celebrity to buy off-market. Anyone can do it. And for those buyers who find the buying process daunting - like I did when we migrated to Australia and I was tasked not only with learning very quickly the differences between the UK and Australian buying process but also under pressure from our local primary school to provide a residential address - buying off-market can save a lot of grey hairs.

Why celebs buy and sell off-market
Listing Loop's Buyer Assist service offers a streamlined, cost-effective, and stress-free home buying process.

We help buyers buy property faster, at the lowest price, and for the best terms

Many of us are time-poor, searching for ways to save money in the current cost-of-living crisis, or simply anxious about the buying process. But with Buyer Assist, our innovative property service powered by Hello Haus, we believe we've reinvented the wheel in terms of home buying. 

Buyer Assist guarantees our buyers a stress-free, streamlined off-market process with the following benefits:

  1. Expert support. Our buyer coaches and advocates have your back from start to finish. They make a point of determining and understanding all your needs in terms of location, budget, timeframe, property type, property age, desired features, capital growth potential, lifestyle and more. Then, based on your buying criteria, they determine the best buying strategy for you.
  2. You won't pay more than a property’s worth. Our experience in your area, detailed research and analysis skills, and cutting-edge technology ensure you pay the right price for your new property.
  3. Fast results. On average, we transact in 28 days on your property, which is up to 7 times faster than the 7-month industry average.
  4. Money savings. Buyer Assist is a cost-effective alternative to buyer’s agents that saves you up to $41,000 on average below your target price and our expert analysts ensure you won’t waste money and time on unnecessary research and reports.
  5. Cutting-edge technology. This puts you in front of more properties more often. It provides exclusive access to properties not yet on the market and keeps you top of mind with agents. For example, we send weekly emails to them with your buyer brief.
  6. An impressive network that gives you access to 20% more properties. You’ll get first dibs on a range of pre and off-market properties owned by motivated sellers.
  7. Agent literacy. We speak “agent”, so you don’t have to. Our objective perspective and knowledge of the industry and its (sometimes) confusing terminology help remove another pain point and the risk of mistakes or buyer remorse.
  8. Skilled negotiators. If you’re a first-home buyer, time-poor, or simply not confident in negotiation, our seasoned negotiators will work tirelessly on your behalf. They live and breathe property. They know your area, understand your priorities, and recognise the true worth of properties in the current market.
  9. No games. We like to keep things simple. We pride ourselves on our communication, integrity and transparency and we bring those skills and values to the table with each transaction, big or small.
