When we list your property for sale we want everyone to know about it! When we sit down with you, we will discuss the following matters in order to determine the best way of marketing your property, and customise the selling process, specifically to fit in with your life style and budget.  The choice is yours. We are there simply to explain, offer our expert opinion on the best course of action, and help you through the process.

What type of purchaser is likely to buy your home? 

Existing home owners looking to upgrade or downsize, First home buyer or Investor. We will advise you what we believe is the right type of purchaser for your home.

What is the best form of advertising to attract the right purchaser?

Listing your property at the best price;

 We will advise and help you in determining the correct market value for your home. We will provide you with information and evidence of sales similar to your home, in your area, to help determine the price which the market is prepared to pay for your home. There are however two choices in setting a price when marketing your home. Market with a price or Market without a price. 

It is critical to the success of selling your home, that it is priced correctly.  Many owners believe pricing their home for more than they expect to achieve, will protect them from underselling.  However in today’s market, this can hinder enquiries, and lead to having the home sit on the market for a lengthy period of time, resulting in the home being discounted to a lower price than it would have achieved, if it had initially been set at the correct market value. The first few weeks on the market is the best time for a property to attract premium purchasers. 

By pricing your property too high we can miss out on potential purchasers, just as by pricing your home too low, we lose the premium price.  This is where our skills and experience are needed. 

Marketing without a Price

Generally when marketing without a price, enquiries are higher, which increases the chance of finding a premium purchaser, and where there are more than one purchaser interested in the property, this method can greatly assist in achieving a premium price. The choice is yours.

Marketing time frame and the importance of correctly pricing your property.

The best time in any marketing program is in the first 3 -4 weeks.  With most buyers utilising  the internet today, buyers are aware of new listings almost immediately as they come on the market.  Statistics show that once a property is discounted, buyers seldom reconsider that  property, and the main reason for discounting a property is generally because the price set was above market value from the start.   This is why it is so crucial that your home is marketed at the correct price, or without a price.  Otherwise you run the risk of having your home on the market for a lengthy period of time, and ultimately selling for a much lower price than you would have achieved, if property had been priced correctly from the start.

 

What we will do to get your home sold for the highest possible Price!

In order to achieve top price for your home we need to attract the greatest number of buyers.

This process is as simple as A B C. 

Superior Marketing             More Enquiries

More Enquiries                    More Buyers

More Buyers                        Greater Competition

Greater Competition           High Sale Price

The best and most proven method of achieving a premium price for a property is to have competition.  Where there are more than one or two interested purchasers competing for a property, this pushes up the price.  In order to achieve this, we will recommend the best possible method of presenting and   marketing your property, however the final decisions are up to you.

 

Most importantly … we never give up! We will maintain our enthusiasm and will keep pushing and promoting your property until a Sale eventuates – and we will always keep you informed of our progress along the way.

Ways to Improve your Property before Listing

  • Repairs: Time and money spent repairing obvious defects is rarely wasted, as buyers want a property that’s in good shape. Check for visible signs of wear, inside and outside your home. Small jobs, such as filling gaps, re-grouting bathroom tiles or sanding and painting windowsills make a big difference to the appearance of your property.

  • Gardens:  In garden beds or decorative pots, healthy plants make a big difference to the way your home looks and feels, so splash out here. Try clumping bamboo for privacy and hanging baskets for a splash of colour. Inside, add a palm tree in the entrance, a weeping fig in the lounge and flowering peace lilies throughout.

  • Soft furnishings: A new set of bed linen, towels and tableware makes any room look fresh and Inviting.

  • Dehumidifier: If it has been raining or you have a problem with damp, invest in a dehumidifier. It will make a huge difference to a musty home and you can take it with you.

  • Painting: If the walls are seriously grubby or dingy, it could be worth spending a few dollars and a weekend slapping a fresh coat of paint on them. Buyers want bright, clean rooms and this gamble may well pay off.

  • Storage: The less furniture, belongings and clutter you have in your home, the more spacious it  appears. If you still have too much after clearing out, put it in storage and live with minimal possessions for the sale period.

  • Staging: Having a home stylist come in and stage your home for sale can be an expense that pays off, especially if you aren’t living in the house at the time. Depending on your budget, a stylist will advise or completely re-decorate in a consistent style, taking into consideration the type of house, the neighbourhood and what buyers want to see. However discuss this with your agent first.

 

Before you splash out on home improvements, first weigh up the impact. If you replace the doors on kitchen cupboards when the insides are falling apart, buyers will wonder what else you’re covering up. Any major renovations need to actually have an impact on the final sale price, so be careful when going for gold, and remember that interested buyers may not like your aesthetic. Less can be more.

 

Ultimately, what you spend and where, should depend on the likely return in the current market. Anything you do, needs to result in a higher sale price, otherwise you’ve wasted your time and money.
