Real estate myths Q.The most successful real estate

salespeople are born, not made. A. Yes, a good agent may have a tendency and inclination to be a savvier negotiator with better people skills, but these are things that can be learnt and nurtured. Top agents are constantly training and upskilling to keep up with market trends and new technology

Debbie Boon & Mick Hydes

Q.I only need to advertise online? Q.The more you pay for a house, the A. Selling a home successfully is more an agent makes. about generating the maximum exA. The difference between posure in the market that excites po-

$300,000 and $310,000 is just $400 to an agency. Do you really think the agent pays any attention to the commission difference of a $10,000 spread?

Q.The less commission you pay

to sell, the more money you make. A.The truth is, agents who are top producers and excel in this business do not discount services. Why? Because they don't have to. The cheapest Real Estate company which makes you the most money is the one who has excellent negotiation skills and obtains the highest price from the market place. The question you have to ask yourself is: Do you want to make more money or save a little bit of money?

tential buyers. This means you need to target market your campaign. Online advertising is affordable and a great way to access a lot of buyers which means that it should definitely be a part of your marketing initiative. The most powerful tool to reach your target market is through advertising in your local newspaper. People read print as subconscious buyers even before they know they want to buy it’s like window shopping. The secret benefit of print is that it attracts buyers to your home that didn’t know, or didn’t think your suburb or home was available to them. We have witnessed on a number of occasions, sales being achieved to buyers looking in a neighbouring suburb, or perhaps only seeking four

%

bedroom homes but end up buying a three bedroom home; all because the print advertising caught their attention. Online searches are a more focused approach from buyers specifically looking to secure property. If you don’t identify a particular house type, or specify a location you will see 100s of listings – which is often far too many. There is something relaxing about sitting with the paper and a cup of coffee and browsing through all the lovely homes. For the best impact - and to get your home sold – you should consider online plus print.

Q. Can I ask for a higher price and

look at offers? A.Inflating your asking price often attracts the wrong buyers to your home. They will be comparing your property to the others within the price bracket and see little value for money. In fact it will make the competing properties more appealing, and help those to sell ahead of your own property. Research and experience has shown us that the most interest in a property starting a new campaign is within the first two-three weeks, if the pricing is not right during this crucial time, potential purchasers move on to the next property and will dismiss yours.

Decor

Adding beauty and brilliance t Nothing helps turn the mundane into magic like glass containers and accents. Here are some suggestions: GLASS COMPOTES

one in my bedroom filled with jewellery. You could place one in a bathroom to display soaps or tip towels. If you're a crafter, use compotes to collect pins or spools of thread. For your home office, use compotes to corral office supplies, filling them with everyday items like paper clips and stamps.

They allow you to showcase daily stuff beautifully. A plain glass jar on my counter holds the cats' food. Somehow, simple glass jars make even kitty kibble look beautiful.

GLASS JARS

Glass Jars Hold Everything in Style. If you have limited space on your kitchen countertops, glass jars are key.

I also use glass containers in my bathrooms, filling apothecary jars with cotton balls, decanters holding mouthwash and compotes with daily grooming items such as earbuds or soap.

Glass Compotes Make Everything Magical. One can't have enough glass compotes. These simple but supremely stylish bowls on a pedestal are an essential when you entertain or just want to elevate the status of nearly anything in your home.

Pitchers and Glasses Make Tabletops More Picturesque.

By using a compote as a serving plate for few simple nibbles makes for a stunning presentation. The key to using compotes to serve food and drinks is to collect a wide variety of heights and sizes so you can create a multidimensional display. The compotes themselves are so delicate and pretty that they make the simple food service seem luxurious.

Do you have a way to put your

PITCHERS AND GLASSES

I'm of the school of thought that dishware is artwork. In a glass-front cabinet I fill them with an assortment of glasses and dishes, arranged simply but beautifully so I can drink in their sparkling grace.

to home decor within. If you want simple beauty in a display, leave the apothecary jar empty so the focus is on the graceful curves of the glass. For a fresh infusion of green, fill them with plants for a terrarium. Let them hold natural treasures, such as nuts, a bird's nest or autumn leaves. Or, use them for a fetching food service - cluster a trio together filled with colourful sweets.

glassware and glass serving pieces out for public view when they are not in use? Try working them into displays in your home, like holding a snippet of garden flowers on your mantel or votive candles on your kitchen windowsill. Glass decanters are glamorous, too. Dress up a coffee table or side table with a tray holding a crystal decanter and two regal glasses. Even if you never intend to use them for drinks, they will look amazing. ACCENTS

My favourite way to decorate with glass accent pieces is to intersperse them throughout my home, winding them through displays. A decanter and glasses are a perfect focal point for a display on a coffee-table ottoman. And an empty glass apothecary jar adds balance to a bold display on the side table.

Entranceways

Excellent entranceways Give your home the power of impression by making the entrance way a focal point with personality.

Lighting is important in every room, including the entrance and the hallways. An attractive chandelier at the entrance sets the tone for the house and illuminates the entrance to welcome guests.

Make the inside of your front door stand out by painting it a bold colour. Pick a colour that works with your decor, or one that picks up a special colour in the area of your door - such as one from the upholstery, or an interesting colour in some artwork. If you want to get really creative and your door has raised panels, you might consider painting just the panels a special colour, or keep the panels neutral and give the rest of the door the colour. Then comes the foyer. This is where guests get their first impression of your home. Make it special. The entire foyer area could be painted a special colour. If space permits, a plant of some sort should be used. If the space is narrow, choose a tall plant so you don't crowd those who enter or leave through that area.

Then move on to other doors in the house. Hallways that have several doors can be made interesting when you paint the hallway side of the doors in a bright colour. That might be all you need. If the hallway is long, and there is a plain wall at the end, that wall should get attention - maybe with artwork, or a grouping of mirrors. Depending on the art or the mirrors, you might consider painting the wall behind a bold colour, too. Your front entrance and hallway would do well with an area rug. Yes, the rug should certainly have

mood. The hallway needs good lighting as well. Here you might be wise to bring in a lighting expert for ideas. A well-lit hallway is attractive and interesting. Is your hallway extra-long or extra-tall? If it's extra-long, paint the wall at the end of the hall a dark colour. The dark colour will advance and give the impression of being close. Is the hall ceiling high? A chair rail will help balance the look, and it could work even if the ceiling isn't tall by adding character. Mull over the possibilities and have fun with your choices. - AAP
