PRD Makes Selling Your Home Easy
The market appraisal
Once you have decided to sell, the next step is to seek a market appraisal. This information will help determine a likely price range of your property. Our years of experience in the area enables us to provide sound advice as to where your property sits in the market right now.
The role of the real estate agent
Our role is sell your property at the best price in the shortest time frame, with minimum inconvenience to you. To do this we:
- Provide advice on the likely selling price of your property.
- Advertise your property to the most likely buyers.
- Attract buyers to inspect and make an offer.
- Negotiate the selling price between yourself and buyers.
- Facilitate the actual sale and legal steps involved in selling.
Setting the price or reserve of your property
Setting the price is one of the most important decisions you have to make when selling your property. Features such as location, size, age and unique attributes will help determine the figure. Our in-house research department also gives us access to unique property information such as average property prices, demographics, sales activity and rental returns.
Marketing your property
We will develop a marketing plan best suited to your property and your needs, to ensure the property has the best exposure and reaches the right buyers.
Negotiating and accepting an offer
We will facilitate all aspects of the negotiation process and present all offers to you in writing, leaving you with the option to accept, or provide a counter offer. When deciding on an offer, you should also consider settlement date, suitability of deposit and whether terms/finance are arranged. The buyer will pay a deposit (usually 10%), with the balance paid on the settlement date. With auctions, there is no cooling off period. The deposit is paid and the contract is signed on the fall on the hammer. On the settlement day, the keys are handed over to the buyer and the property becomes their responsibility.
Request a Property Appraisal
If you have decided to sell, or still just considering the idea, we will conduct a free, no obligation appraisal of your property and provide you with sound advice on where your property sits in the market right now.
