Selling Tips

Detailing

Have your property detailed thoroughly.

Improvements

Sprucing up your property will increase the saleability and more than likely increase the sale price.

Stylist / Interior Designer

A property stylist can improve the appeal of your property by enhancing its appearance. This helps in obtaining a higher sale price. We can assist you with a contact in this field.

Contract

The Contract for Sale should be prepared by your solicitor or conveyancer with all the essential terms and conditions. In NSW the law requires that a contract be available for inspection prior to your property being offered for sale.

Compliance

A certificate of compliance should be obtained from the local council if you have recently undertaken major building works.

Building report

Obtain a building and pest inspection report. This allows you to have necessary repair work done prior to sale. A 100% clear report can be used as a selling feature for buyers.

Rental Agreement

If there is a current lease, check the expiry date and termination requirements and advise your solicitor and agent of the details.

Inclusions

Make a note of all the inclusions. That is, everything that will be included in the purchase price and remaining at the property after completion. Standard items include; light fittings, floor coverings, curtains and blinds. These can also be excluded if you prefer but it should be noted in the contract for sale. The agent should have these details for inspections with buyers.
