SELLING YOUR PROPERTY
Thinking of selling your home or an investment property?
 

Contact David Jones and he will make a time to inspect the property, talk with you about your expectations, and give you an honest and realistic appraisal on what the property would sell for in the currect market and what you should list the property for to allow room for negotiation.

 

The price David will give you will not be inflated to get your attention, rather it will be a price that he is confident you can attain in the current market

 

David can also give you some ideas and talk through any areas of concern, such as maintenance that should be done first, ideas on advertising, open houses or inspections by appointment and next steps.

 
FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE LASTING IMPRESSIONS
Sometimes buyers will drive into a street or past a property - and think "oh no I couldn't live there"

 

You don't want this to happen to you when you have listed your property for sale, so make sure first impressions count.

 

When a buyer arrives outside your property:
 


  • Have the lawns cut, edges trimmed and gardens neat

  • Remove rubbish, old furniture, cars etc

  • Keep entrances clear for easy access and to prevent anyone tripping - so keep toys, bikes, tools etc out of the way

  • You don't want your dog to run away when someone opens the gate - or worse - scare them away - so ensure pets are kept out of the way, taken for a walk or tied up

  • Ensure the front of the house looks clean and tidy - cobwebs cleared from around windows and doorways, gutters not overflowing with leaves, front verandah/porch area clean

  • Turn on the front light if the inspection is after hours


 

Inspecting the inside of your property:


  • Create an inviting atmosphere - ensure furniture is in the best position and open the blinds and curtains to allow the natural light to come in

  • Make sure the house is tidy, beds made, clothes off the floors, dishes not piled up in the kitchen

  • Ensure the house smells nice

  • Keep the rooms clear - buyers need to see flooring, how their furniture will fit in etc

  • For a late afternoon/evening inspection, switch lights on in each room



 
INSPECTIONS
We will organise the inspections for your property, either as scheduled open houses, or inspections by appointment.
 

If possible, leave your home while the inspection is underway. It is also best to remove the pets, so take the dog for a walk.
 

Real Estate Southern Highlands have the experience to understand the buyers requirements and, therefore, can better emphasise all the features, uniqueness and benefits of your home against the buyers needs and priorities.

 

 

David will call you at the completion of the inspection and give you feedback, get additional information from you that the buyer may require, and also discuss any offers!
