Selling Tips

Thinking of Selling?

 

Selling property can be an emotionally charged experience.

From the initial excitement of making the decision through to the thrill of seeing your property sell for a higher than expected price.

Once you have made the decision to sell, it is important to understand what you can control and what may be outside of your influence such as interest rates and economy fluctuations.

The team at Bender and Co. is focused on helping you achieve the price you want when selling your property.  We will work collaboratively with you to understand your requirements and then develop a selling and marketing strategy that we believe will work.

 

Selling Price 

 

Setting a realistic asking price is essential to attract the right buyers and
encourage them to seriously consider your property to purchase.

If you start with an unrealistic price, you may be pricing yourself out of the market. If the market is strong, it pays to be conservative with your price range estimates as it is likely to increase interest from serious buyers, creating more competition and potentially securing a successful sales outcome sooner.

To assist you in establishing a fair market price for your property the best source of local knowledge, market information and recent sales history is most likely to be your local agent.

 

Property Presentation 

 

Although this may sound obvious, a well-maintained and well- presented property is likely to sell faster and for a much higher price than a poorly maintained property.

Overgrown gardens, crowded and cluttered rooms, dirty interior or weathered exteriors are likely
to deter potential buyers and increase their bargaining power when negotiating price.

When preparing for property inspections and sale consider soft lighting to brighten rooms, a spruce up of the outside and a simple clean of all windows.

It can pay huge dividends when you pay attention to the small details.

 

Property Profile

 

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then an effective property marketing campaign could be worth thousands more.

As you have invested time and money in preparing the property, investing in high-quality photography to showcase the properties unique features is paramount.

There are many other factors that can influence a successful sales outcome for your property.

To find out how to set the right sales price, prepare your property properly and market it
to its best potential, we recommend partnering with a trusted real estate agent who has
local expertise, who has successfully listed and sold properties in your area and who has a proven track record as an effective communicator.

The team at Bender and Co. look forward to meeting with you to understand your selling needs.
