While most of us would prefer to be selling our property when the market is booming, circumstances don’t always allow for this to happen.
But a great property sale isn’t just about timing the market correctly, it also comes down to having a bit of property knowledge and finding the right experts to help you figure out how to add value to your home and maximise its selling price.
Tip #1 – Find a good agent
As soon as you’re considering selling, start talking to agents and figuring out which one is the right one for you. It’s important to find someone you have a good rapport with and who is willing to provide you with honest advice and feedback to help you sell your property for the best price.
A good agent can advise you on the best property improvements to make and let you know what needs to be done to prepare your property for the market.
Tip #2 – Many any necessary improvements
After discussing your property with your agent, figure out if there’s anything you can do to help get buyers’ attention.
In general, you’ll want to concentrate your attention on making simple cosmetic repairs that will have a major impact. Things like painting and re-doing kitchens and bathrooms are popular ways to increase the value of a property without making major investments or changes.
Tip #3 – Price your property competitively
A higher asking price doesn’t necessarily make for a higher selling price, and in fact it could hurt your sale and have buyers running in the opposite direction.
Choosing the right way to go about pricing your property is crucial to selling for the best price and this is something that you really need to talk seriously about with your agent and listen to their recommendations.
Tip #4 – Use professional photos and staging services
If you want your property to stand out and attract buyers, you’re going to need to have great images that show off the best aspects of your property.
Staging services help in this regard too and will help buyers visualise how to use different rooms and spaces that might otherwise seem awkward. Property staging also helps depersonalise a property so that buyers see it as move in ready.
Overall, have a chat to your agent for advice on what you can do to help maximise your sale price. Visit www.professionals.com.au to find a Professionals Real Estate Agent in your area.
