Many people make the decision to sell their home, then suddenly realise the magnitude of putting their home on the market. By slowing the process down and ensuring that their home & mindset are ready for the market place, a seller can fetch a substantially greater price for their property. At R&W Seaforth/Balgowlah, we work with clients to formulate a strategy that’s right for them. We’ve been working with some of our clients for months to prepare them for the right time to come to the market early next year. Others have wanted the sale before Christmas, the thing they all have in common is they’ve sort expert advice & a plan has been made.
Tips for getting the best price for your home:
Presentation – make sure your home is presented, ready to sell. Make sure you’re well aware of what the market is looking for & highlight those most desirable features.
Remove clutter & give the feeling of open spaces.
Make repairs and complete those D.Y.I. projects. This is going to be of enormous advantage when it comes to negotiations.
Lawns and gardens neat, trimmed and fresh.
Use natural light to enhance the size of your rooms. The correct placement of furniture can transform the feel & use of an area.
Take your time and plan your move. This means, allowing time to get all the “odd jobs” completed before you place your home on the market.
Minimise children’s toys and clutter.
Minimise furnishings. You may love your old lazy-boy chair, yet prospective buyers mightn’t.
Remove oil and grease from drive ways and paths.
No dripping taps or shower heads.
No unpleasant odours.
Clean the oven, grill and cook top.
Remove seldom used kitchen appliances.
Selling your property can be very competitive. In effect it is your home competing against other properties on the market. That being the case, you should ensure that your home is at its peak presentation at all times. The team at R&W Seaforth/Balgowlah make these preparations easy with our team of consultants, stylists & handymen all at the ready to be of service to you.
