Selling Your Home? How To Go About It…

Us brokers spend a lot of time helping people buy their own home or investment properties but did you know we can also help you with selling your home. There is more to selling your home than putting up a ‘For Sale’ sign on your front lawn.

Here are some of the key things you should check off your list to help you get the largest return from your investment and to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible.

Choose a quality agent

This is critical. Always begin by asking family and friends who have purchased or sold a property about their experience. Also, if you peruse your local newspaper you can always see who are the top performers and helps to ensure your agent specialises in your area and is someone you feel comfortable around as they don’t just negotiate prices on your behalf, they also act as a mediator and represent you as a vendor.

Don’t take things personally

Remember this is a business transaction; don’t feel insulted if you receive feedback on the property that doesn’t match how you feel about your home. To ensure you come out with the best deal, remove all emotion and think of your house as a commodity.

Your property won’t sell itself

Thinking that your home will sell itself can be a costly mistake. Despite how much you like the way you have it set up, furniture, flooring and painting changes can make a big difference to the property’s wider appeal, and marketing it widely can increase the competition and, therefore, the price. Trust your agent and their strategy and engage in a thorough marketing campaign and invest in presenting your property in its best light.

Speak to your broker

If you are making a decision to sell, speak to your finance broker to ensure that your plans after selling – whether they are buying a similar property, upgrading or building – are actually feasible.

Surround yourself with a good team

When all of the people in your network, including your broker, conveyancer and agent, communicate effectively, you should be blissfully unaware of any minor issues that pop up during the course of the sale.
