Marketing a property is more than presentation and advertising. Conceptually, marketing is identifying what prospective buyers are looking for then providing this. For example, larger homes and sections may appeal more to families. Young couples starting out, generally have tight budgets leading them to smaller properties, while older people may be looking to downsize. Brand new has a particular appeal however there will always be a market for established homes. Having a picture in your mind of the type of buyer will help in determining the features to emphasise. If repairs and maintenance need to be carried out before putting the property on the market, seek the advice of a real estate agent. They can advise on what tasks are worth completing and what might be unnecessary expense. Avoid going overboard unless the capital value

of properties in the area justifies this. Real estate agents are in contact with prospective buyers so are aware of what they are looking for. Draw on their expertise and advice to help make the most of the selling opportunity. When promoting a property, mix it up and be creative so your property stands out from the rest. Present the features the property offers as benefits to potential buyers. Buyer perception is also significant. For example, properties that sit for a while can become stale. Resting the property by taking it off the market for a short time, then relisting perhaps in spring or when sales in the area appear to lift a little, can make a difference. However, if a property does not sell immediately there is no need for panic or dropping the price. It may simply be that the right buyer has not yet come along. If the mix is right your property will sell.
