Seller Tips

Selling your home can be a big step and its a good idea to be prepared. Here are some important things to consider:

1. Choose a reputable agency with a strong track record for quality service and success.

2. Understand your agency agreement before you sign and don’t feel pressured.

3. Ask your agent to help you research prices in the area to which you are moving.

4. Don’t overlook the preparation of the property, a good agent will be able to provide tips on where to spend your time and money.

5. Enlist the services of a local solicitor to assist you in the legal conveyancing aspect of the contract. Our office can make recommendations.

6. Speak to your financier about your situation before you go to market. There is a lot happening in the banking world so it’s important to know where you stand
and the costs involved with moving.

7. Create of list of what is included and excluded in the sale, eg wall mounted TV, dishwasher, clothes dryer, water features and planter pots etc.

8. Don’t leave removal arrangements until it’s sold, start getting quotes now.

9. Have as much information about your property available for your agent. This is always handy for the new buyer and simple things like manuals and warranty cards are helpful.

10. Have a garage sale and start clearing out unwanted items early. Not only will this help with the presentation of your property it will save time and stress when you move out.
