Selling Information


The preparation you put into getting your property ready for sale can be the difference between getting a standard price and a great price. The best part is, it's not hard, time consuming or expensive. Whatever your motive for selling, the process can either be stress free or tense and disappointing. The good news is that you have the ability to choose. There are four factors that will influence the outcome of any sale, Timing, Presentation, Method of Sale and Marketing needs to be considered when selling.


Buyers for a property can be found all year round however it is rare that a purchaser for your specific home is waiting for you to put it on the market.

We find that the local market experiences more interest in the 'Spring' with a greater turnover of properties during the traditional 'Moving Season' from December to March. The number of buyers in the market place is fairly constant throughout the year with the only expectations being a drop during exceptionally wet periods and during political instability. Prior to placing your home on the market, allow yourself time to prepare the home as you would like and for your agent to prepare the marketing material.


Presentation can be the difference between achieving an average price for your home and achieving a result above your expectations. A well-presented exterior will enable your home to stand out above the other homes on the market, therefore, attracting more buyers to it. Take time to step back and look at your home as if you were a prospective buyer. Remember buyers will be comparing your home to others that they have seen, so it is important that your home creates a positive environment.

Call or email us if you would like a detailed list of presentation suggestions.

Method of Sale

We aim to have our clients feel confident and comfortable with the sales process. We offer Auction, Private Sale and Closing Date or by Tender Sale, all methods which can be tailored to your needs and those of your property. Our experience and knowledge of the market place means that we are well placed to recommend the method which will give you the best opportunity of maximising your properties sales price.


Our marketing strategies are designed to ensure that as many as possible potential buyers for your home are notified of its availability. The quality of the marketing material then entices the buyer to call us, email us, attend an open house or visit our office. Some of the mediums we use include internet, local paper, brochures, signboards, window display, database, newsletters etc…

Our marketing campaigns can be tailored to suit your budget requirements, and we would encourage you to contact us to discuss this further.
