1. Property Appraisal

Setting a price that is in line with current market conditions is more likely to attract a pool of buyers and provide the best possible return. An overpriced Darwin property won’t attract offers, while an under-priced house for sale in Darwin will leave you short-changed. A professional appraisal from an experienced local agent helps you understand what the market is prepared to pay and verifies that against your price expectations.

2. Presentation

The more attractive and well-presented your property is, the more buyers you are likely to attract interest from. Most buyers today are looking for hassle-free property that won’t need renovating or a lot of upkeep to enjoy. Popular features include a low-maintenance garden, neutral colour tones, storage space and quality fixtures and fittings.

3. Proactive Marketing

Property is a competitive market, making effective, proactive marketing is critical for successfully selling your home. Marketing campaigns should be tailored to suit the demographics of potential buyers and utilise a mixture of tactics, with a focus on digital and social media advertising.

4. Building and Pest Report

One of the most daunting prospects for buyers is purchasing a property only to realise there are problems with it after settlement. Proactively providing a building and pest report for potential buyers eliminates these concerns and attracts more interest, while at the same time ensuring a smoother settlement process.

5. Choose the Right Agent

Choosing the right local agent plays a massive role in how quickly you can sell your home, and how much for. Look for an agent with local expertise and strong communication and negotiation skills. Negotiation skills are key to securing a favourable outcome and ensuring all parties feel happy with the outcome.
