There’s more to selling your home than meets the eye. Do you realise you are not only selling a property but the promise of a new life? When buyers walk into your home they are trying to imagine how happy they will be living there. Your job is to convince them. Buyers need to feel they would be happier in your house than any other they’ve looked at.
The real estate market is extremely competitive. Most people, particularly families, want a home that is turnkey standard. That means a home that is attractive, functional and requires absolutely no work to be comfortable. A place where they can just open the door, move right in and start enjoying their new life. Property in Merimbula, Pambula or Tura Beach is ideally located so you only need to make your particular property shine.
Here are our real estate tips to help you sell your property for the best results:
Local Knowledge. Use the services of a real estate agent who has good local knowledge of sales and potential property buyers in Merimbula, Pambula and Tura Beach. A reputable Real Estate Agent will be able to advise on the correct selling price, method of sale and tailor marketing of your property to qualified buyers likely to show real interest in purchasing your home.
Eliminate Clutter. Just look at the inside of a display home and you will see how to best present your place. Remove unnecessary items such as children’s toys, unused furniture, paperwork and general clutter. Your home will look tidier and the rooms much bigger.
Spruce up the garden. When you’re selling your house, first impressions are everything. The front yard is your first chance to make a good impression, and it’s worth investing some time to make it look its best. From the moment a buyer drives up you want them to be enticed by the well-kept lawns and the gardens to immediately value your property and have a good look inside.
Add value by adding function. Take a look at how each room of the home is set up. Can you add value by changing how the rooms are used? People often aren’t adept at visualising how different spaces could be used, so it’s good to show them: you need to create a function for each space. If possible, show people more living areas. This can be as simple as creating a reading nook by a window with an armchair and small side table.
Don’t forget to have fun! Selling your home can be a daunting thought but remember, your Real Estate Agent is always there to answer any questions and should make this process as easy as possible for you!
