Buyers for a property can be found all year round, however, it's not often that a purchaser for your home is out there, just waiting for you to put your home on the market. At Heart Property we maintain a prospective purchaser data base on our computer and so it is possible that we may already have your buyer registered.
A prominent marketing strategy is vital for a successful sale and we have a number of proven marketing strategies to offer, or you can design your own marketing strategy.

Timing is also a factor to consider when selling. Spring is often considered to be the best time to sell as it's a time of optimism and with the weather clearing, more potential buyers will be out and about. It is also a time when more sellers will put their homes on the market so there will be more competition.
Winter usually presents fewer buyers, but the buyers are usually more focussed on purchasing and traditionally there will be fewer homes on the market to choose from. It's interesting to note that we have had some of our best months in June and July.
Presentation is also vital for a successful sale and we recommend that prior to placing your home on the market, allow an additional two weeks to prepare both the property and the marketing material.
The preparation you put into getting your property ready for sale can be the difference between getting a standard price and a great price. The best part is, it's not hard, time consuming or expensive. Whatever your motive for selling, the process can either be stress free or tense and disappointing.
A tidy home says "Welcome". Your home should be kept neat and tidy during the period of inspections. It should not necessarily be a "show place" but appear a comfortable home in which to live. Fresh flowers or indoor plants always brighten up a home.
While you're cleaning, think about each room and what furniture really needs to be in it. Rooms look smaller when they are crowded. Clear out anything that's not needed to create a feeling of spaciousness. Make sure that all minor repairs are completed. Sticking doors and windows, loose door knobs, faulty plumbing, or peeling paint may affect your sale.
Let plenty of light into your home. Nothing improves atmosphere more than brightness. And on a dull day switch on some lights prior to arrival of prospective purchasers. A warm comfortable heated home on cold days adds a feeling of cosiness; on a hot day don't forget to turn on any air conditioning or fans (or simply let the breeze flow through). Your Heart Property consultant understands what buyers like and dislike and will be able to advise you of any improvements needed to show your home to its best advantage.
You have a number of different methods of sale. Private Sale and Auction are two of the most popular, however you can submit your property to the market also by Tender. There are pro's and con's with all methods and your Heart Property consultant can explain all the pro's and con's at the appropriate time.
Our reputation is fundamental to our ongoing success and so we genuinely want to achieve the best sale price in the shortest possible time with the minimum of fuss because we know that if we can achieve this for you, you will be happy to refer us to your family and friends.
