Selling a property can be a challenging and complicated process. It requires a lot of knowledge, skills, and expertise to navigate the complexities of the real estate market successfully. Let us help take the stress out of selling your property.
- How long will it take to sell my home?
Every home is different, but the length of time it takes to sell your home will depend largely on the current market conditions. In markets where supply is low, and demand is high, the period is generally shorter. When the supply is high, and demand low, days on market can become protracted. Either way, you can be assured that I will do everything we can to generate interest and sell your property for the best price possible.
- Do I need to style my home?
In most cases we can work with the furniture you have in your home, however professional styling can make a huge difference to how a space is seen by a potential buyer. The stylist not only adds beautiful pieces, they use strategy to make spaces look larger or to give them a purpose. If styling your home is something you want to know more about, I will be more than happy to discuss options with you.
- Should I spend money updating before I sell?
In some cases a coat of paint can make a huge difference to a home but generally speaking we wouldn't advise you to start sinking money into any major renovations. Before you make any changes to your home, speak with me so I can help you assess whether the updates would actually increase the value of your property.
- Which sale method is the best?
Private treaty/private sale is the most common way of selling a home in New Zealand. It is when the home is for sale with a set price. Normally, there is a period of negotiation where offers pass back and forth between the seller and the buyer before they come to a mutually agreeable price and the property is sold. Auctions are also very popular in New Zealand and a great way to build interest within a set time frame. I will help you decide on the best sale method for your home in the current market.
- What can I do to attract more buyers?
Presentation is key. Even before the scheduled open homes, potential buyers could be driving past your home, so you need to make sure your front lawns and gardens are maintained and inviting throughout the entire campaign. Whether people are driving past unintentionally or intentionally, you want them to get a good first impression so that they come back for the open home.
