3 Pointers For
First Time Sellers

Selling your home should be an exciting and rewarding chapter of your life.

But we know that it can naturally come with some stress. You've lived in your home, made memories, but now it's time to say goodbye.

There's an overwhelming amount of information you can find on the secrets to selling your home or all of the hidden 'tricks and tips'. It's hard to know what to believe, but the best place to start is with a trusted Agent.

Your real estate agent has the experience and knowledge to guide you through the entire process, and most importantly have your best interests at heart. For first time sellers, we have a few pointers to get you started.

Pick your perfect agent

When it comes to selling your home, picking the right agent is an important and personal decision. Just like finding the right hairdresser, there are people who understand you and others who don’t. The right agent will understand your local market inside and out, and more importantly understand your individual circumstances and needs. When searching for an agent, do your research! Choose someone who you feel has the right experience, and the right approach for your home.

Selling in the season

Believe it or not, the time of year you put your home on the market can influence the required strategy you implement to sell your home. Winter can sometimes mean less 'foot traffic', however the quality of buyers often remains the same and with historically less competition in the marketplace, excellent results can be achieved.

When the weather is a bit warmer and the sun comes out, generally buyer enquiry may increase, which then needs to be managed by your agent in different ways. Our Agents can help you find the best strategy most suited to the time of year you choose to sell your home, and ensure the best outcome for you.

Think 'quality'

We want to help you show your home in the best light possible, so it's important to avoid compromising on quality with things like photography. Most buyers will look straight at the images of your home before they read the finer print, so beautiful photography will capture their attention and help them to see themselves in it.
