Autumn Quarterly Report 2018 | Jody Green

Hello, and welcome. With the first few weeks of Winter upon us, we can feel grateful for our blissfully sunny days and warmer climate than our Southern friends. Generally, most people traditionally sell their homes in spring: everything’s in bloom, brighter and looks great. But talk to real estate agents and drill down on sales results, and you’ll find that the best season to sell your particular property isn’t necessarily spring. There can be a huge advantage in marketing your home during traditionally quiet periods, in Winter for example, there will be fewer properties to choose from, so more of the buyers will get to see your place. Homes that get great winter light can really stand out during the cooler months. Those west-facing windows that were a problem in summer can make for a real bonus from June through August. Draw back the curtains and blinds on all windows and let as much light and warmth in as possible. Also, be sure to consult your agent about the best time of day to show your home. For example, if you have lots of north-facing windows and receive plenty of winter sunshine, you’ll probably want to show it during the day. If you have great City views, evening viewings can ‘seal the deal’ with Buyers.

Regardless of the time of year you decide to sell, there are some absolute must-dos: – Thoroughly clean your property from top to bottom – inside and out – Address any off-putting maintenance issues, such as peeling paint, worn or marked carpets, cracked tiles, etc. (if you’re selling a knockdown or “renovator’s delight”, this step often isn’t necessary) – Banish any pet smells – Furnish your property in an attractive but not overly cluttered or personal way, to give potential buyers a perspective on room sizes and to present the home in its best light – It’s a great idea to invest in professional staging, as this can ad thousands to the end sales result – Pay for professional photographs and good marketing, again, it ads untold value to your property (Source Domain.com.au)

After you’ve tackled the any-time-of-year jobs, you can focus on seasonality and how it may influence how you present and market your home. Talk to you soon.

What others are saying. “Super Agent” - 12 Feb 2018 I’m taking this time to congratulate our Agent Jody Green on the successful sale of our apartment at 88 Main street Kangaroo point Brisbane, we certainly are very happy with her tireless effort in finding the purchaser and negotiating a satisfactory sale price for our Property. Jody was able to negotiate the purchase price well above the original offers, with her vast knowledge of the Kangaroo point area CBD and surrounding suburbs giving her the advantage in this competitive apartment market. We were continually having interested buyers through our property for inspections, many no doubt brought from her personal pool of investment clients and previous happy purchasers. Jody was continually suggesting great ways to have our property in all the best advertising platforms whilst keeping close eyes on budget ensuring value for money and valuable feedback. We couldn’t be happier with Jody’s service we are now looking for a new property and have Jody on the job!! BRETT & SARAH HANSEN – 88 MAIN STREET KANGAROO POINT – SOLD $1,250,000
