The market as we know is fluid with every new listing and sale impacting market trends. When it comes to selling and navigating offers, quality beats quantity every time. The real key to getting the best possible price for your property is to speak to an expert, who can guide you through any renovations required and offer styling tips to prepare your property.
You would be amazed at the difference a few simple, inexpensive improvements can make – even small adjustments like tidying up the front yard, replacing dated cupboard handles or tapwear, or installing modern light fittings can really boost the appeal (and the value) of your property.
Currently prices are holding with good numbers of buyers looking to purchase but they are very discerning. Last weekend, 49 groups turned out to view 106 Deep Lead Lane, Kyneton, a renovated miners cottage on a small acreage with district views and the week prior we sold 24 Lauriston Street, Malmsbury for $435,000 above reserve via a Zoom Auction, as well as 63 Beauchamp Street, Kyneton via a boardroom auction. All 3 properties offered a ‘turn key’ solution to buyers with great floorplans, lots of light, and most importantly, nothing more to spend.
The pendulum is shifting however and even though we are entering the peak selling season, in order to achieve the best outcome you need to engage an agent with not only a track record of working through the different property cycles (28 years in my case) and who can clearly articulate a selling strategy, have a robust marketing plan across all mediums, including multiple social media platforms and a strong customer base of qualified buyers who are ready to make decisions.
Most importantly, we are known as strong negotiators who are always in our ‘vendors corner’. The expectation that we always looking for the “best buyer, not the first buyer” gives our clients a real advantage in the marketplace.
There are just 10 weekends to go before Santa pays us a visit, the market is good and we are primed to work incredibly hard into Christmas and beyond.
