Buyers for good quality property can be found all year round. With the marketing process having become far more sophisticated than in previous times, the issue of timing is less relevent today than in the past. However, there are some important points you may wish to consider.
If your property is located in one of the Sunshine Coast's beachside suburbs our research indicates that the Autumn, Spring and Summer seasons produce superior results, particularly September through to May. In tourist destinations like the Sunshine Coast, this period can be the best time for the sale of property due to the fact many affluent buyers from Brisbane, interstate and overseas are spending time on the Sunshine Coast during these times.
The time required to sell property that is accurately priced will typically vary between four and eight weeks. Prior to placing your property on the market, allow an additional two weeks to prepare both the property and the marketing material.
Presentation of your property is a critical factor in achieving the highest possible price. The emotional appeal required to stir the spirit of the buyers is unlikely to be generated by a poorly presented property. A neglected building sends out alarm bells to prospective purchasers.
It is important to do whatever is possible to have your property looking its absolute best on inspection day.
Some elements to remove from the property include:
To improve the presentation, seek an outside opinion, as many of these problems can be fixed over a weekend for little expense. We believe the process is so important that for properties over $1 million we suggest you may consider the services of a Property Stylist to help in preparing the property for sale.
