Sample tips

  • If you ‘fail to plan’ then you will ‘plan to fail’ and as your home is likely to be your biggest asset, failure to plan could mean a lifetime of regret. If you have prepared your home well and your marketing plan is successful chances are you will have many visitors and viewings. Keeping your valuable and personal items safe and secure is vital. Lock away or remove these items (just placing them in a drawer may not be good enough to keep them safe from a potential open home thief).

  • Make sure that you get along well with the agent you choose. This person could be visiting your home and talking about your personal affairs for weeks or months, and it is important that you trust his or her advice, and can rely on the service they provide.
  • Position, Price and Presentation are major factors determining the ultimate sale price. You set the asking price, however the buyer ultimately determines its true value. Good presentation will attract buyers – overpriced properties attract very few buyers. Once a judgement has been made based on the original price, it is very difficult to get buyers to revisit.
  • If you are planning costly renovations, pay a licensed property valuer to confirm the existing market value of your home and to advise you what value your proposed improvements would add.
  • Pots and containers are the very best way to dress up your garden during the marketing period. They can add instant colour to brighten up a dull corner, are very useful accessories to define and control the flow around the outside of your home, can be used to disguise unattractive features such as unsightly drains or downpipes and the great thing about them is when you move you can take your plants with you.
