selling tips

At Pat O’Driscoll Real Estate we appreciate that we all want to get the best price out of the sale of your property. We will endeavour to work with you to achieve the best possible results. Below is a brief list of tips to consider when preparing to sell your home.

Choosing your agent is paramount when selling your home. Consider the agents local knowledge, track record and rapport with you, the seller, before choosing them to represent you in the sale of your home or investment property. Does the agent profile standout from the others? Are they the lead agent in your preferred suburb? How many for sale signs are on display and what have they sold in the area? Do they have a detailed and informative website?

Consider how you wish to sell your home, whether by private treaty or by auction. Both methods present their own pros and cons and your agent can advise you on which sales method will best suit your individual property

Discuss advertising in detail with your agent. This is what will generate interest and encourage potential purchasers to inspect your home. A qualified agent will be able to inform you on how advertising can help you reach your prospective buyer and the right amount of advertising for your property to achieve the maximum price

Ensure your property is well presented, both inside and out, many prospective home buyers will drive by before deciding whether or not to actually inspect. Presentation and first impressions are the key. Ask your agent their advice on what the market is wanting with regards to presentation

Make the most of open house inspections. Try and set your house apart in the mind of the prospective buyer, use subtleties like decorating with fresh flowers to give your home an ambience that sets it apart from the rest

Most importantly, take enough time to discuss with your agent the process, the time frame to sell and your expectations of them from the first meeting
