When it comes to selling your home or investment property, perhaps the most important decision you will make happens before you start the sale process - your selection of agent. No matter why you are thinking of selling, a Bowman & Company agent can assist with every aspect – from your choice of sale method to setting a price and negotiating a premium outcome. Here are some tips and strategies from our team:
Auction versus Private Sale
One of the first decisions a vendor will make when moving forward with the sale of their property is the choice between sale at auction, or private sale. This is where Bowman & Company can guide you. An assessment of your home and your needs will establish the rightmethod for you.
Whether your property requires refurbishment or newly built; whether you wish to restyle with what you have or fully furnish anew, a little styling can achieve the maximum appeal to the highest number of buyers. Your home does not need to look like a show piece, in fact often a warm and homely feel creates appeal. Here are the basics you will want to take care of before opening your house for inspection.
1. Home and Garden Maintenance — including weeding and rubbish removal
2. Handyman services — re-hanging a door, replacing a window frame etc
3. Styling — declutter, reposition, supply rental furniture and matching accessories
Once you have decided your method of sale, your agent will discuss the appropriate marketing campaign for your property. This includes promotional material such as brochures and boards as well as the advertising required, including the appropriate websites, to showcase your home to the market and maximise exposure. All marketing costs are transparent and your agent does not profit from the marketing process.
Once a price has been agreed either at auction or private sale, a deposit is taken from the buyer and the Contract of Sale is signed by all parties. The transfer of ownership of land from the seller to the buyer is called a conveyance of land. This process is usually undertaken with the assistance of a solicitor or conveyancer. Sellers should engage their own solicitor or conveyance who acts according to your preferences and individual requirements. It is important to understand there are differences in what solicitors and conveyancers are legally allowed to undertake on behalf of a client.
