Are You Selling?

Whether it’s your Home or an investment property, making the decision to sell is a big deal.

 

1. KNOW YOUR MARKET

It’s important that home owners understand how the market is really travelling in order to assess the value of their own home.

Listings and Asking Prices are one thing, but days on market, price reductions and actual sale prices are even more important when assessing your local market.

You may be surprised by the variance! Don’t be fooled by inflated appraisal values.

2. PREPARE YOUR HOME

There’s no science to making buyers fall in love with your home. Every property is unique and each has it’s own key selling points.

I’ve always believed that if a home photographs well, it will sell well!  Here are two examples of uncluttered homes which the market fell in love with;

269 Stirling Street Perth   –  Furnished by professional Furniture Staging Company.

3. CHOOSE YOUR AGENT

days-on-market-dropsIf you’ve made the decision to sell your property, that’s the hard part! Choosing your agent should be easy.

There’s going to be a huge temptation to employ the agent who offers you the highest appraisal value along with the cheapest commission or fee… but don’t be fooled!  An over inflated appraisal value may sound great in the beginning but ultimately it leads to low buyer enquiry, a long time on the market and a low eventual sale price.

Look for a track record of LOW DAYS ON MARKET and STRONG SALE PRICES when choosing your agent!
