Selling Tips

Selling your property is often thought to be one of the most stressful times in your life. But it doesn’t have to be. With some forethought and strong decisions on the sale method & marketing, this can ensure a positive outcome with minimal stress.

When it comes to selling your home or investment property, perhaps the most important decision you will make happens before you start the sale process – your selection of agent.

Choosing an Agent

Selecting an agent is one of the most crucial steps to selling your property. They’ll be doing all the hard work for you and are a fundamental to a successful sale.  Before you start, consider this as selecting a professional business partnership. Ensure before you sign that the sales person and the company fit your current situation and offer you the most professional service.

With some simple questions of your agent as well as yourself, you will find yourself most comfortable with your selection.

Consider.....

  • Do I trust this person?
  • Can I work with this person and will I feel comfortable to be honest with them?
  • Are they really listening to my situation?
  • Do they care?
  • Are they offering the best for what I need and will I be happy working closely with them and their company?

Some questions you may ask of your agent...

  • How did you come up with your suggested price for my property?
  • How will you actually sell my property?
  • What costs are involved in selling?
  • What marketing do you recommend and how will this best sell my home?
  • Do you have any recommendations for how I can best present my home?
  • How long is it taking to sell a property in today’s market?
  • What have you sold recently like my property? How did you get the best price for the owner then?
  • What type of support do you have?
  • Do you conduct open for inspections and are you available on weekends for buyers?

Presenting your property for sale

Regardless of age, style, and finish of your property, it is always the best idea to present it in the best condition you can. Consider these points prior to commencing marketing of your home....

  • Gardening – tidy up, weeding, mulching, replant and remove rubbish. This is important for land as well as home sales.
  • Clean and replace fly screens, rehang doors if need be, fix dripping taps, cracked glass and squeaky doors  (general handyman maintenance services).
  • Consider repainting any tired rooms or even a small touch up.
  • Clean the home, consider professional services and a full window clean inside and out.
  • De-clutter, consider removing a lot of your favourite knick knacks, anything that you treasure that could break and create a feeling of space throughout the home.
  • Consider the odours in your home such as animals, cigarettes etc.

A discussion with your selected agent will assist you in preparing your home for sale. A little thought and styling can achieve maximum marketing appeal and increase the level of enquiry to your property.
