Here are a few tips to help clients understand what steps are involved in the sales of their properties:
- Hesitant in selling?
It is always a difficult choice when it comes to the question of whether or not to sell your property. So many factors need to be considered; is the current time a good time to sell your property? is the property market going to decrease in the near future? Is it better off buying a new house before selling your current home? What value can your property net you?
- Choosing an agent
In this instance, the experience and networking abilities of the agent is paramount. Your agent needs to be diligent, have a diverse range of customers and is required to have sufficient capabilities and knowledge of the property industry. At Aussiehome Real Estate, every agent is deeply immersed in the property industry and can confidently provide accurate appraisal and assistance in every step of the sale process.
- How you want to sell
A marketing strategy will be devised by you and your agent to maximise the exposure of your property. For some clarification on where your property will be advertised and the level of exposure your property can achieve please look at our marketing strategy tab.
- Determining your selling price and property inclusions
Your property’s location, size, age and features will be assessed, as well the current market and area trends are considered. Appraisal is an important assessment of your property and suburb. This step really highlights the level of commitment and knowledge of our agents, as we help you better understand the current industry. The level of property insight by our agents, will help you feel confident in placing your property in our hands.
- Signing an agreement
This legally binding contract will detail any commissions, the estimated sale price, duration of the agreement, advertising costs, process and much much more. We advice that you sign an exclusive contract with us as it allows us to put all our attention and effort on the sales of your property.
- Prepare the Vendor’s Statement
(or Section 32) for your property and the Contract of Sale through your solicitor or conveyancer. These will include all of the details prospective purchasers will need.
- Advertising and showing your property
This step is the step to provide the level of service and advertisement you deserve. Photographing your property, drawing up floorplans and detailing your property is an essential factor to make potential buyers interested in your property. Our reputation as on the top Asian Real Estate agency, strong internet presence and traditional newspaper marketing will help generate a remarkeable number of enquiries. With Aussiehome behind the promotion of your property, you can be rest assured that every one will know that your property is a hot sale that is up for grab!
- Going on the market
Prospective buyers will contact your agent to inspect your property. Your agent will inform you of any enquiries and any offers
- Sale and negotiation
Your agent will auction your property or mediate between you and buyers to reach a mutually acceptable price. As your agent, we all hope to help maximise your property sale price so you can be assured that every action we do is to help you quickly sell your property and sell it with a price that will make you pleasantly astonished.
- Under contract
Both seller and buyer’s lawyers and banks will work out the details of the sale to ensure both parties meet all legal and financial requirements.
- Settlement day
Finally the day of the exchange, you’ll relinquish the keys and legal rights to your property in exchange for the balance of payment from the buyer or their bank.
