Seven steps to a smooth house sale

Selling your home doesn’t have to be a stressful process. Here are seven steps you can take to ensure a smooth transition to your next adventure…

Plan ahead

You can increase your chances of a great result by planning your house sale a few months in advance. Give yourself time to declutter, get small repair jobs done, tackle the garden if required, take photos on a sunny day and choose the right real estate professional to represent you.

Choose a competent real estate professional

The best way to add value to your home is to hire a marketing expert that knows your local market inside out. Look for a salesperson who is focussed on finding the best buyer for your home, not just a quick sale. It all starts with a free consultation, so call me today to book yours.

Use the right marketing to attract buyers

You get one chance to sell your home for a great price. Do it once and do it right. Make sure no stone is left unturned in finding the best possible buyer for your home. With Arizto, a full and extensive marketing package is included with our fixed $10,000+gst commission, which ensures we attract the right buyers for your property.

Make it easy for buyers to view your home

Once you are on the market, it’s important to capture as much interest as possible by making it easy for buyers with busy schedules to view your property and hopefully fall in love with it! Try to cook meals in advance and stock your freezer with quick reheat options so you can pop out of the house if a hot buyer wants to take a look at short notice.

Disclose any issues early on

There is no such thing as a perfect home and divulging a small weakness is a great way to build trust in any negotiation. Especially with an asset as big as property. If you disclose a known problem with your home early in the process, it is less likely to be a deal-breaker for your potential buyers.

Hire a cleaning company for moving day

It’s easy to forget how stressful moving can be. Take one big job off your plate by hiring professional cleaners to tidy your empty home after you have moved out. That way, you can jump in the car and head to your next adventure with a clear head, knowing your purchasers will be moving into a sparkling clean home.

I specialise in helping my clients secure the best possible price for their homes, along with a smooth transition to their next one. Get in touch today to book your free consultation and let’s talk about how to make your big move a reality.
