Apply these helpful tips for selling your home

Know the value of your home

Before listing your house for sale, you need a well-informed view on what your property is worth in the current market. Talk to your local area specialists for an expert opinion on the sales price you can expect to achieve.

How does your real estate agent estimate the correct price point for your home?

Your agent will consider:

  • The unique features and characteristics of your home
  • Current market conditions
  • Recent comparable sales in the area

Do your research

Doing your research helps you get the best possible price for your home. Good groundwork ensures you are ready to meet the market with confidence.

Where to start:

  1. Gather information. Your local area specialist can provide useful insights and helpful tips for selling your house, including information on the selling process, contractual terms and conditions, and your obligations during the sale.
  2. Learn more about the current value of properties in your area. You can find recent sales information on realestate.com.au, domain.com.au and in The Sydney Morning Herald price guide.
  3. Compare the prices of currently listed homes. This will ensure you understand the different pricing points in your local area or call one of Highland Property Group’s area specialists for detailed market insights.
  4. Attend local auctions to learn about pricing and the auction process. Speak to agents in your local area to find out if an auction is a good option for your property.

Select your experts

Choose experts with a strong track record who can offer first-hand experience and professional tips for selling your home without any hitches. In addition to your local real estate agent, your team of professionals may include a solicitor, conveyancer, mortgage broker and lender. And don’t forget, tradespeople and removalists.

Check the quality of work each one is offering and do your research until you find reliable professionals who deliver services you’re confident in. Highland Property Group’s in-house concierge service can also provide helpful assistance.

Understand your legal obligations

When selling your home, there are several legal contracts to understand. These may include:

  1. Agency Agreement
  2. Contract Notes
  3. Contract of Sale
  4. Authority to Sell

Contracts can be both written and verbal. Take your time to understand any contract before you sign. Read everything carefully (including the fine print) and if there are any terms or conditions you’re unsure of, ask your solicitor or conveyancer to explain them fully.

For additional peace of mind, put any verbal agreement into writing.

And, most importantly, don’t sign anything until your legal representative has checked and reviewed it.

Perfect your sales strategy

You deserve the best possible price for your property. Our dedicated team at Highland Property Group understand achieving the best sales price for your home can make a difference of tens of thousands of dollars.

To maximise your house price, talk with your local agent to plan the most effective sales strategy to suit your budget and needs.
