Tailored marketing approach


Selling

Presentation and appearance of your property is paramount to achieve the optimum result. Whether you require painting, repairs, garden work or styling of your property we can assist.

Undertake a building and pest report well before any marketing of the property commences. If problems are located these can be rectified before the property is put on the market.

It’s important to be aware of current market conditions and have a realistic selling price expectation that is achievable. Similar properties may have been sold months ago; this however can be used as a guide only. It is no guarantee of the current expected price.

Not all properties can be marketed under the same options for selling. Many agencies prefer the auction method. An auction gives a relative quick turn over and allows agencies to move onto other properties. Ensure you discuss with your agency the pros and cons on the various methods of marketing before deciding.

Buying

We specialise in residential sales in the Sydney region.

Ensure your finance is approved before deciding to purchase a property. Lending conditions may have changed and finance that was approved months ago may have altered.

Negotiate a settlement date to suit your requirements and ensure you have this approval in writing.

Check all the details you have been given about a property. Inquire with Council concerning developments that may affect the property being considered.

Ensure any building and pest report is in your name. This insures you have recourse if problems occur that were not mentioned in the report.
