4. Presenting your home

One of the most important steps in the process is presenting your home. We highly recommend you make sure your property is as minimalist as possible. First impressions are important, so you’ll want to ensure your property shines for the photography and open for inspections. You may want to consider a professional styling company to come and stage your home for sale which our Offices can assist with.

5. Choose a sales method 

There are several ways to sell your property, such as auction, private sale, and expression of interest. In Victoria the most popular method is auction, however, your agent will guide you through the options and recommend the best method to suit your needs.

6. Have realistic expectations 

We recommend you research the current market, access recent sales data, and set yourself a rough idea on the value of your property. You can then discuss with your agent their estimated selling price. Our agents will have great insights based on local trends, current supply and demand, and other influencing factors.
