1. Presentation

First impressions always count, aim for your property to look like a display home.

Remembering less is more, we recommend decluttering, keeping the home neat & tidy and

smelling fresh at all times. If you are unsure of how the home should be presented, have a

chat to your Agent, as they work with professional stylists frequently. Be sure to keep your

gardens manicured and clean. Attend to all maintenance and repairs you may have

throughout the property. Any unfinished renovations should be completed unless instructed

otherwise.

 

2. Knowing Your Property’s True Value

We certainly encourage you to attend as many open homes within your area as possible,

knowing your competition (other properties on the market) and their sale prices will

educate you on what your Property’s True Value is. Having your agent providing all the

comparable sales for the last 6-12 months will also inform you with all necessary

information about the current market conditions.

 

3. Sales Method

There are a few sales methods available, the most common methods in this current market

is Auction & Private Treaty. Both working extremely well for our clients. The other two are,

Expressions of Interest & Tender, these being designed for more the high-end properties or

multi-million dollar estates.

However, there are Pro & Cons for all methods of sale, so your Professional Agent will

provide their expertise and advise on which method they believe will generate more enquiry

but also help maximise your sale price. This will be determined by looking at the particulars

of the property, previous sales in the area and competing listings.

 

4. Marketing Your Property Effectively

Marketing is one of the most important roles in the sale of your property. Our aim is to

reach the broadest spectrum of buyers, as this will generate much more enquiry within the

property, then create competition amongst the buyers, therefore we achieve a premium

price.

In order to achieve a premium price, the following are essential: Internet advertising,

professional photography, floor plan, photo sign board, brochures, area letterbox drop,

window display, press advertising and social media.

 

5. Preparing the Contract

It is important to engage with a solicitor/conveyancer who is local and has experience with

the local zoning laws and regulations. Your Solicitor/conveyancer will prepare the contract

as it is a very important part to the sale process and vital to include settlement date, special

conditions, sewer diagrams, owner details, title search, zoning certificates and

inclusions/exclusions.
