Selling Tips

In a cluttered market, selecting an agent to sell your home can be confusing.Here are 6 reasons to assist you in making the right decision.
 
Office Location
With office in Wyndham, your property is effectively being promoted not just by your selling agent, but by every agent of our office. The database of qualified buyers of our office offers the maximum return for your investment.
 
Local Knowledge
Not only do our staff work in your suburb, quite often they live there too and are actively involved in their communities. Because of this, they are connected to what's going on, who's doing what and have their finger on the pulse of who wants to buy and sell. This knowledge can be invaluable to tap into if you have an interest in the property market.
 
Marketing
From multi-million dollar property to first homes and units, the promotion of each property we sell is tailor made to suit our clients needs and budget. We don't operate a one size fits all approach but carefully think about the best marketing strategy each and every time.
 
Innovation
We embrace technology and creative advances that benefit both our clients and staff. We are forward-thinking, yet keep our core values of integrity, trust and exemplary service intact. Our Lockedon Selling System and Rent on Time are just some of the initiatives we have incorporated, specifically with our clients in mind.
 
Database
For every transactions with detailed registrations of buyers, segmented into various market classes - investors, developers, upgraders, down-sizers, builders etc - makes us well placed to generate buyer interest, competition.
 
People
Most companies are only as good as their people and we invest significant resources into ours with continuous mentoring and coaching, training sessions, seminars, professional development, motivational speakers and in-house workshops. Our collective intellectual property, the way we think, act and negotiate should ensure we continue to out-perform the market standard.

Timing

Buyers for a property can be found all year round however it's not often that a purchaser for your home is out there, just waiting for you to put your home on the market. Timing, presentation and advertising are all required to bring buyers and sellers together for the best result. 
 
Spring is often considered to be the best time to sell. It's a time of optimism and with the weather clearing, more potential buyers will be out and about. It is also a time when more sellers will put their homes on the market so there will be more competition.
 
Winter usually presents fewer buyers, but the buyers are usually more focussed on purchasing and traditionally there will be fewer homes on the market to choose from. Prior to placing your home on the market, allow an additional two weeks to prepare both the property and the marketing material.
 

Presentation

A tidy home says "Welcome". Your home should be kept neat and tidy during the period of inspections. It should not necessarily be a "show place" but appear a comfortable home in which to live. Fresh flowers or indoor plants always brighten up a home. While you're cleaning, think about each room and what furniture really needs to be in it. Rooms look smaller when they are crowded. Clear out anything that's not needed to create a feeling of spaciousness. Make sure that all minor repairs are completed. Sticking doors and windows, loose door knobs, faulty plumbing, or peeling paint may affect your sale. Let plenty of light into your home. Nothing improves atmosphere more than brightness. And on a dull day switch on some lights prior to arrival of prospective purchasers. A warm comfortable heated home on cold days adds a feeling of cosiness; on a hot day don't forget to turn on any air conditioning or fans (or simply let the breeze flow through).

Method of Sale

Auction
If you submit your property for Auction this means that prospective purchasers will bid against one another at a date and time suitable to you. You can set a reserve price, which is the minimum you will accept, and once bidding has passed that level you know you have a sale, as it will be unconditional and a predetermined deposit must be paid on the day. 
 
Private Treaty
Sale by Private Treaty means that you set a price at which your property is to be marketed to the public through the marketing plan agreed to by you and the agent.
