Understanding your market place.

These days you can use a variety of sources to find information about property markets and market activity. The role of a great agent is to help you interpret that information and advise you how to use it to achieve a great result. With access to the latest and most up to date information, our agents can help advise you on:
  • Your property
  • Your current competition
  • What’s happening in your neighbourhood
  • The economic environment
  • Recent market activity in your area
  • Your target market

Co-ordinating your pre- market essentials:

A great result can’t be achieved without careful planning and preparation. We will work with you to carefully plan out the entire process and get your property looking its best. We can also help you with the various regulatory requirements that need to be taken care of before your property hits the market including:
  • Energy Efficiency Report
  • Building, Pest and Compliance reports
  • Contract for sale
  • Styling and presentation of your property

Selecting the best sales strategy for your property.

We understand that every property is unique and that the decisions you will make in regards to the sale of your property will differ depending on your goals. There are a number of different sales strategies that can be utilised when selling your home.
  • Auction campaign
  • Set Price
  • Tender
  • Offers Over campaign
  • By Negotiation
There is no one size fits all approach. A professional agent will work with you to explain the benefits of each and be able to deliver a high impact, professional marketing campaign based on the best option for you and your property.

Presenting your property

They say you never get a second chance at a first impression. Taking the time to ensure that your property looks its best can be just as important as any investment you make in repairs and refurbishments. Our agents can advise you on what changes you can make to your property to make it more appealing to buyers, and we will work closely with you to ensure that all aspects of your property are prepared for inspections, photography, marketing & ultimately for sale.
