Have you decided to selling your property at auction? Here are some simple strategies that may help you get a better result.
- Fix up the property
From cleaning the gutters (in case there is rainfall during inspections or around the time of auction) to fixing minor issues such broken lights or cleaning carpets, everyting helps. Fix up your property to attract better offers.
- Manage your own expectations
Everyone has opinions when it comes to property value. It is however suggested that you research the value of your property and set your expectations realistically. Websites such as onthehouse.com.au, realestate.com.au/sold & domain.com.au/sold have sold prices of properties freely available. Research the recent property sales in your vicinity and make the right decision in accepting offers.
- Choose your sales agent carefully
Visit some auctions in your suburb. Watch the local agents in action and talk to them without telling them that you're thinking of selling your property. Do your research and avoid the pushy agents. Ensure that you're comfortable with the agent and their suggestions/strategy to maximise your sale result.
- Choose the time of auction wisely
Consider the weather, your family situation and/or work hours, your kids when deciding the time of auction. Ask the agents lots of questions before making a sound decision.
