We have recently sold our house in St Ives after having lived in the area for 20 years.... here are some gems that were given to us when we decided to sell....
1. Price Your Home Right.
Understand the market before you speak to agents. ( get info from RP data from your financial planner or mortgage broker). You get details of every sale in your area over the past 3 years, together with an assessment of the value of your house. Feel free to all or email me, and we will get you that data with pleasure (cal 02 92623333, email email@example.com)
Remember price is everything. Match your price with similar house price sales in area. A quick sale is a good sale.
2.Find the right agent
The right agent can make a massive difference. Selecting
the wrong agent can be very expensive. Do your homework, get referrals, and get them to pitch on selling your home...what price they expect to get etc . Get someone who knows your area..
3. Use all channels For Marketing Your Home.
Internet, advertising, neighbourhood campaign, database plan, signage, best photography, editorial, video, floor plan, open houses, hot buyer preview and the absolute best agent working for you.
Hilary Lazarus was our agent.... She was awesome!
4. Feng Shwi your house
Buyers are looking for a home that they connect with and feel like they want to live there and this connection comes from style and creating a WOW. Do the feng shwi thing.
5. The 30 Day Rule.
Your best buyers will come along in the first 30 days. Our buyer was the first ones that saw our house!
They say "the first offer is usually the best one"
6. Just Relax.
Once you have Feng shwied, found the right agent and worked with her on a marketing campaign - chill! Relax and work closely with your agent and everything will work out just fine.
You only need one buyer to buy your home!
