Tips for Sellers - Peter May and Brad Robson
If you’ve never bought a home, you may not know that a building and pest inspection is pivotal to ensure you know exactly what you’re getting.
The main question is “Is it necessary” and the simple answer to that is “no”, but if we look beyond that and ask what are the benefits, well there’s plenty and getting a higher price for your home is just one, so let’s explore.
Arguably the biggest benefit is the ability to paint a picture for potential buyers. Staging is a great way to allow a buyer to see themselves living in the home.
At some stage in our lives, every home owner will likely look to upgrade, downsize or move location…raising the question of whether it is better to buy before you sell, or sell before you buy. This decision will be impacted by many personal factors as well as what is currently happening within the real estate market. But just to throw some more information into the mix, here are some insider views on the pros and cons for both sides of the debate.
With temperatures already hitting the high 20’s, it is clear that spring has well and truly made its conquest on winter. We can now emerge from the cold bleak months and look forward to the beautiful warm weather to come. Traditionally spring brings a fresh influx of Buyers and Sellers to the market and with interest rates still holding steady at an all-time low, we are expecting this spring season to really reap some outstanding results!
Apart from the more pleasant change of climate, both Buyers and Sellers can complete a property transaction knowing that settlement will be finalised before the Christmas/New Year period.
