Once you have decided to sell we’ll guide you through how to present your home or investment property in a way that will attract the largest target market so as to achieve the best possible sales price. Our team can ensure simple, cost effective methods to prepare your house for sale perhaps without the need for any major maintenance.
As experienced agents, to evaluate your property we can look past the toys, meal preparation, study books and the way you enjoy your home. However when presenting your home for sale to prospective buyers it’s really important that your property is shown in the best possible light as presentation will have a dramatic impact on the selling price. Timing is everything and the presentation process needs to begin from the moment you decide to sell.
The preparation you put into getting your property ready for sale can be the difference between getting a standard price and getting a great price. And, the best part is, it’s not hard, time consuming or expensive. We believe the process is so important that we offer our clients the services of our agents who have been trained in Property Styling, to help in preparing the property.
First impressions count so it’s important that your home is presented at its best at every viewing including when photography is taken for media and internet advertising. The emotional appeal required to stir the spirit of the buyers is unlikely to be generated by a poorly presented property. And a neglected building sends out ‘warning signals’ to prospective buyers.
The time required to sell property, that is accurately priced, will typically vary between two and six weeks. Prior to placing your property on the market, allow an additional two weeks to prepare both the property and the marketing material.
We are here to make your life easy so if you need to organise any tradespeople whether it be cleaners, plumbers, electricians, gardeners or a general handyman, we can assist you and are only too happy to do so. Avoid stress by being well prepared.
Remember too that once your home is on the market you need to try and disassociate yourself and remove any emotional connection to the house……. you’ll be moving too, so look to the future!
