The importance of street appeals and home presentation. A large percentage of home buyers decide whether or not to look inside a house based on its street appeal - being the view they see when they drive by for a look or arrive for an inspection. You can help make sure they come inside your home by spending some time to freshen up its exterior appearance.
The internal presentation is as equally important. How the home will photograph and present on the real estate websites and local paper advertising is extremely important. Your home should be clean, neat and tidy - having clean kitchens and bathrooms is a must and pet odours are negative.
Get rid of any clutter in the house. Start packing some less used items and store them in the garage if that will help.
Potential buyers search for homes on the real estate websites and in the local paper and form opinions based on visual appeal. The market appeal of your property determines how much interest your home will receive.
Our agents work with our professional photographer so that we showcase your property in its best light. Our marketing expertise ensures your property stands out in the crowd.
Remember people looking to buy need to feel comfortable in your home so try to make your home as pleasant as it can be for open homes and inspections.
Your pre-sale checklist. Once you have decided to sell your first step is to engage a solicitor or conveyancer to prepare your Contract of Sale for marketing purposes with a list of property specific terms and conditions.
You will need to make a list of what you feel should be included in the sale such as light fittings, curtains, blinds etc. for your meeting with your chosen solicitor or conveyancer. If you are unsure on what to include please give us a call and we can assist. If you do not have a preferred solicitor or conveyancer we can assist you with providing you with a selection of trusted professionals for you to choose from.
In NSW your agent cannot advertise your property or introduce people to your property until your contract has been prepared by your legal representative and made available to your agent for inspection by a potential buyer.
You will need to allow 1-2 weeks for preparation of the sales contract and to organise the marketing schedule which includes professional photography, floor plans, and ad placement preparation.
Choosing your agent. The step to appoint an agent to represent you in the sale of your home is without question the most important step in your selling process.
