Selling your property? Here is what you need to know!
April 26, 2023

Selling a property can be daunting. Rest assured that with the proper research, preparation, and support, you can do what’s needed to get a great result. When you set out to sell your property there are a lot of things to consider. From using the property history function on popular real estate platforms to keep a close eye on the property values in your area, reviewing sales prices, auction clearance rates and more, it pays to be on top of what is happening in the market.

Do your research

A good idea is to look at current sales figures, not advertised prices, as these will more closely reflect what buyers are willing to pay. Compare your property to other properties surrounding you and set your asking price and expectations accordingly. Before you reach out to an agent, you should have a clear idea of; the other properties surrounding you. This will help determine your asking price and expectations in accordance with the market.

Research & Compare

Compare the local market

Pay close attention to the state and features of the properties you’re competing with. Does your home have a pool while others in your street don’t? Is your home not as modern as others in your area? What can you do to make your home the most attractive choice for buyers?

If you find that your home’s features are similar to others in the area, you’ll have to find other ways to make it stand out and unique within the market. You may have to spend more money on staging and inspection preparation.
