Ensuring a successful sale

Ensuring a successful sale

It’s true, you really only get one chance to make a good first impression. And if you own a considerable sized rural property, this will no doubt take time and effort. Here are five must do’s and five common mistakes when preparing your property for sale.

What are five must do’s when preparing your property for sale?

  1. Remove old machine parts, weeds, dead plants, tree branches and general rubbish
  2. Repair any fencing, gates, sheds, pens, pumps, hoses and sprinklers
  3. Re-paint and resurface any tired looking entrances, driveways or pathways
  4. Have your garden and pastures looking as lush and healthy as possible
  5. Tidy, freshen-up and de-clutter your home’s interior so it looks and feels welcoming

What are five common mistakes when preparing your property for sale?

  1. Too much ‘you’ – pack away family photographs, trophies, toys and any artwork that might be considered ‘edgy’ so that the home has a neutral feel
  2. Too much ‘style – overly bright colours, harsh lighting, unusual furnishings or strong aromas can detract from your home’s main features
  3. Overlooking small problems or issues – this isn’t always intentional, but things like broken lights and doorknobs, stains and scratches on surfaces are all noticed by keen buyers
  4. Overlooking the importance of the lounge room – this is often the make or break room for a buyer, so make it as spacious, warm and comfortable as possible
  5. Remaining emotionally attached – it’s very difficult to suddenly pretend you no longer live there, but motivated sellers are able to look at their properties through the objective eyes of a buyer
