Choosing An Agent For Your Property Appraisal.

Choosing a real estate agent can be a confronting and difficult exercise. This is where RealConnect can make your job so much easier. By sourcing you multiple quotes to sell or rent your property from local real estate agents, you can then view and compare each agents services & fees, consider them without pressure and then make the decision which agent you would like to have supply you with a property appraisal and to sell or rent your property.
Consider the following...
  • What are their credentials?
  • Does their proposal meet your needs?
  • What is their sales history?
  • Are they personable?
  • Do they understand your area?
  • Do they have knowledge of the price bracket that you are in?
  • Is their marketing plan and fees inline with the market?
  • What is their valuation for your property? Is it achievable?
  • Ask questions, check the fine print and read the contract!
While every seller or landlord wants to achieve the best possible price for their property with the lowest in fees, highest and lowest is not always the best. Don’t choose an agent purely because they are offering the highest valuation for your property. Ask them to quantify that valuation and make sure that it is a realistic one.
Conversely, don’t choose an agent purely because they are offering the lowest in fees as this may reflect in the amount of time that they spend marketing your property. Balance is the key – ask lots of questions so you know exactly what services for fees your agents are offering. If your property price is too high, it may sit on the market and go stale, but if you set your price too low, you may be missing out on potential profit. Comparing property sales in your area, will help you determine whether or not your sale price is realistic.
Determine a price that you are willing to accept, and you believe someone is willing to pay, and then maybe add a margin for negotiation.

Top Tips For Selling Or Renting Your Property

Before you show your property to an agent, or list your property for rent or sale, you need to make it look its absolute best, so here are some tips for you.
First impressions are important, so it is extremely important that these first impressions are good ones. Have a look around your home. Does it present well? Chances are that you have been living in your home and it looks very much just that – lived in. That is not a bad thing, as this is what also can make a house look homely and welcoming. However, quite often houses tend to be a little cluttered which may make your property feel crowded and small. By doing something as simple as removing some clutter and excess furniture you can make a room feel spacious and stylish without having to spend a cent.
If the house is an empty house, there is also the option of ‘staging’. There are a number of property stagers and stylists that, for a fee, can style your home with rented furnishings for the duration of the sale to make it feel modern and homely – a great idea if your own style is a little left field. They will usually style the home to its best advantage.
Making a home look and feel modern making the most of each room’s features can hide a multitude of sins. The same goes for the outside of the property. Give the garden a good overhaul – mow, prune, trim, clean so that it so that the garden looks neat and manageable. An out of control garden gives the impression of high maintenance even if it is not. Is the facade of the house presentable? Fly screens fixed, doors painted, gutters cleaned, shoes moved away from the front door? It is the little things that can make a huge impression on how your property is first perceived.
Here are a few things to look out for outside...
  • Street Appeal - How does your house look from the street?
  • Fencing - does it need repairing?
  • Mailbox - has it seen better days?
  • Awnings - are the cobwebs removed?
  • Gutters - are they clean and leaves removed?
  • Verandah - is there a collection of shoes and toys?
  • Windows - clean the windows, especially the front ones!
  • Drive way - is it clean? A freshly gurneyed driveway can look amazing!
 And inside…
  • Pets – if you have them indoors, take them on an adventure (away from the house) when people are visiting the house. Pet smells can be very off-putting, so aromatise the house if this is the case. If they are in backyard make sure that any droppings are removed from view.
  • Remove clutter – this is a big one. Remove anything that is out on display that does not need to be. This includes photographs, knick knacks, excess furnishings, clothes, shoes, food and utensils in the kitchen. People like to see nice clean uncluttered surfaces – it will make a room feel much more spacious
  • Painting – paint any surfaces that need to be painted, taking care to cut in properly – there is nothing worse than a bad paint job – you may as well not have done it is if it is not going to be done properly.
  • Clean carpets – it doesn’t hurt to give carpets a good steam clean. This will remove and odours and stains that a carpet may be harbouring. Steam cleaning and regrouting tiles are a quick and easy fix as well.
  • Fix what needs fixing – fix leaking taps, hinges on doors and cupboards, lights that have blown, and anything else that is obvious – why give a potential buyer a reason to negotiate due to something that can be so easily repaired.
  • Style your house to suite the trend – not everyone can aford to do this, but if your house and furniture is a little ‘aged’, it can make your home look older than it needs to look. By simply having some stylish pieces, even just in the way of soft furnishings, it can make a huge difference to the ‘target buyers’ that you may attract. Professional staging could be an option here.
