Okay, you don’t have to sell your house right now, but it’s kinda nice to have the option. From today, users can list and sell their homes directly to other FNB clients via the existing ‘Nav>>Home’ portal in the FNB app.
A simple and secure listing feature in the Nav section of the app gives FNB clients the ability to upload details of the property you’re looking to sell, which will be familiar to anyone who’s used other property listing websites. The important factor here is that buyers will be people who already qualify for a loan and has been credit checked.
This means that sellers won’t have to hassle with time-wasters or scammers, or necessarily use estate agents. FNB takes the estate agent role and streamlines the whole process inside their well-established (and, frankly, sector leading) app.
The new Nav>>Home feature comes shortly after the app’s Nav>>Car feature launched in May, which monitors car payments and allows users to renew car licenses (for a fee). With Home, the seller won’t pay commission to FNB for the listing… which is great news, given the usual hefty fees selling a property incurs. After all, every little bit helps.
