Selecting an agent..

BEFORE choosing, it is important to remember that not all agents are created equal.

Here are some points to consider:

  • THE best agent is the one who provides a quality service, not the one with the biggest pre-sale estimate. Big talk costs them nothing but if it is all hot air, it can cost the seller dearly.

  •  CHEAP is not necessarily cheerful when signing with an agent. It is worth considering whether you want an agent who can’t even negotiate their own commission. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for.

  •  TIME is money and choosing an agent who puts in the time with you is money well spent. You need to be thoroughly briefed on your sales options, their pros and cons, the importance of marketing and how to best market your specific property. 

  • AN agent should be full of ideas on how to present the house to get the best sales price.
  • WHEN selling a house, you do not need costly surprises. You want an agent who is up front about all the costs in the selling process.
  • YOU need to feel comfortable that the agent is working for YOU. 

“From the first day that we signed with P. Di Natale Real Estate we never looked back.
We cannot praise this group of people enough. 
The team were co-operative, helpful, professional and honest,
qualities that we found from past experience. 
You cannot assume you will automatically receive the same
when you sign with another agent to sell your home.”







Presenting Your Home For Sale

Property Presentation
The better your property is presented to buyers, the better price it will attract. Good preparation together with your marketing strategy will ensure that you attract the "best buyers" to your property and will result in achieving the best possible price.

In relation to this we know that first impressions last. Here are some useful hints to ensure your property is presented in the best possible way:

Wash and clear dishes from kitchen
Ensure beds are made    
Remove any clutter or children’s toys from floors
Clean interior including walls and doors   
Repair any cracks in ceilings and walls   
Draw back curtains for more light    
Light up any dark areas     

Mow your lawns
Tidy your gardens
Remove rubbish and where possible hide rubbish bins
Clean up exterior spaces including sheds and storage areas
Repair exterior paintwork
Remove clothes from your clothes line
Clean windows
Remove pets on the day of inspections

Creating an Atmosphere for Buyers
Potential buyers will be asking, "Can I imagine living here?". Inside, aim for a sense of light, space and warmth. This might mean storing some of your furniture in a paid facility or with a friend or relative. An uncluttered look is certainly more appealing because it emphasises the space the potential buyer has to work with.

Inexpensive ideas such as throw rugs or loose covers can help dress up tired furniture, or you might consider hiring furniture for the period your home will be open.

Finish any projects that are not completed, but think twice before starting an expensive new project. It is best to make the most of what you have because you never know whether major alterations will be to your buyers' tastes.

Furniture Hire
If the property you are selling is unfurnished, it is well known that decorating it with hire furniture can assist in engaging buyers. P Di Natale Werribee provides a number of solutions for interior decorating and furniture hire assistance. Just ask your agent when first discussing the sale of your property.

To summarise

• Make an informed decision
• Shop around
• Don’t hurry

If you have made the decision to sell, a representative from P. Di Natale Real Estate would be delighted to discuss with you all the pros and cons of the different sale methods and any other queries you may have. This comes with no obligation; just the best knowledge and experience.
