Selling your property can be the most daunting and stressful event in your life. We intend to make the process as smooth as possible by managing the process, step-by-step.
Because there is no ‘standard’ way to sell a property, our agents provide personal advise to your particular situation and then put a plan in place to implement the selling project, right through to the first open inspection, everything is planned and calculated.
Our home make-over specialist can provide furniture placement tips and advice to enhance the living space areas.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to organise a consultation on your specific property.
Below are some handy ‘tips’ when preparing your property for inspection.
First Impressions – the view from the street
- Clean the letterbox – this is the first impression of your property the buyer will get!
- Check & remove street rubbish outside of your front boundary
- Add interest to your doorway with potted plants
- Clean the front door or give it a fresh coat of paint
- Clean the roller door
- Check the gutters are cleared
- Buy some plants and pullout any weeds, consider a garden make over or load of new bark chips.
- Invest in a new front door mat
- Declutter, declutter, declutter!
- Create space by moving or removing furniture
- Put away personal photographs and pictures
- Ensure your carpets are cleaned
- If you have a rumpus room, have a family movie playing on the TV during the inspections.
- Clear everything off the benchtops for maximum space
- New cupboard and drawer handles will add life to an old kitchen
- A fresh coat of paint will add life to a tired kitchen
- Present a fresh bowl of lemons and limes or fruit
Bathrooms and Wet Areas
- Your bathroom must be spotless and tiles clean, ask your agent for a professional cleaner who has machinery that can cater for carpets and tiles.
