By now it’s evident that the country has headed in to the warmer spring season. The weather has begun to pick up, and buyers are heading out into the market to secure their real estate purchases before the holiday season begins.
Spring is usually a busy time of the year for the real estate market, with many sellers listing their properties for sale to take advantage of weather and market conditions.
If selling your home is on the horizon for you in the near term, here are some tips to help you get your property sold!
Get professional photography
While the sun is shining and your home is looking great, make sure you book a professional photographer to come and take pictures of your home.
Good quality photography can go a long way in your real estate marketing campaign, and is definitely worth the trouble.
These pictures will appear in all of your home’s advertising, such as web, print and signboards, so it’s best to get it done by a professional for optimal results.
Professional real estate photographers know exactly how to accentuate the wonderful features you have in your home, and the good weather can make it look even better!
Auctions have been a hot selling method over the year, especially in markets such as Sydney and Melbourne. In fact, both capital cities have experienced high auction clearance rates for many months, indicating a good level of confidence and sentiment in the current property market.
This selling method is a great one to use when buyer activity is high, as there can be fierce competition amongst bidders. As a result, your home could see a good result once it passes under the hammer.
Host open inspections
Take advantage of the sunny, warm weather and show off the features your home possesses with open inspections. By hosting these on a regular basis, you can let prospective buyers gain a good feel for your home and witness it at its best.
Be flexible with viewing times and have at least one open inspection on weekends to allow as many people through as possible.
Spring cleaning for spring selling
Before you open up your home to the public, remember to give it a good spring clean and ensure that it’s in perfect condition for visitors. De-clutter each room, ensure all surfaces are sparkling and the garden is well trimmed and alive.
You may even want to get into that spring feeling and plant a few flowers here and there to tie in with the season.
