The preparation you put into getting your property ready for sale can be the difference between getting a standard price and a great price. The best part is, it's not hard, time consuming or expensive. Whatever your motive for selling, the process can either be stress free or tense and disappointing. The good news is that you have the ability to choose.
Working together is the key to a great outcome when selling your property. This includes minor repairs & a possible redesign of your home. By attending to gardens for your initial street appeal, the layout of your furniture & even your back yard layout can make a difference when your home is being inspected either in person or via the Homes Guide & Homes Pictorial magazines, Internet or Window Display.
We believe the photographs are the most important tool in your marketing. The photos need to be taken at the right time of day or night to capture your properties best features. So when a potential buyer is viewing your property on the internet, magazine or window display, they're getting excited over your property before they've had an inspection.
The text is the next most important item in your marketing. Every buyer has a check list in mind when they start looking for a home. eg:
- 4 bedrooms, ensuite.
- Lounge, dining, family rooms.
- Renovated kitchen & bathrooms.
- Double garage.
- Nice size yard. etc etc.
It is with this same checklist we use to advertise your property. By using this format we are giving all those potential buyers a detailed list of what your property has to offer, instead of a long story where the description of your property gets lost in words many people would never use.
Remember, 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. 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).
Good luck with your sale.
