There are several other factors that will influence the outcome of any sale….
Buyers for a property can be found all year round however it's not often that a purchaser for your home is out there, just waiting for you to put your home on the market.
Timing, presentation and advertising are all required to bring buyers and sellers together for the best result. Spring is often considered to be the best time to sell. It's a time of optimism and with the weather clearing, more potential buyers will be out and about. However, it is also a time when more sellers will put their homes on the market so there will be more competition.
Winter usually presents fewer buyers, but the buyers are usually more focused on purchasing and generally there will be fewer properties on the market to choose from.
Prior to placing your property on the market, allow for an additional fortnight to prepare both the property and the marketing material.
A tidy home says "Welcome".
Your home should be kept neat and tidy during the period of inspections. It doesn’t have to be "show home" but presented as a comfortable home in which to live. Fresh flowers or indoor plants always brighten up a home. While you're cleaning, think about each room and what furniture really needs to be in it.
Rooms look smaller when they are crowded. Clear out anything that's not needed to create a feeling of spaciousness. Make sure that all minor repairs are completed.
Sticking doors and windows, loose door knobs, faulty plumbing, or peeling paint may affect your sale. Let plenty of light into your home. Nothing improves atmosphere more than brightness. On a dull day switch on some lights prior to arrival of prospective purchasers. A warm comfortable heated home on cold days adds a feeling of cosiness; on a hot day don't forget to turn on any air conditioning or fans (or simply let the breeze flow through).
Method of Sale
If you submit your property for Auction this means that prospective purchasers will bid against one another at a date and time suitable to you. You can set a reserve price, which is the minimum you will accept, and once bidding has passed that level you know you have a sale, as it will be unconditional, and a predetermined deposit must be paid on the day.
Sale by Private Treaty means that you set a price at which your property is to be marketed to the public through the marketing plan agreed to by you and the agent.
