After a long winter, the real estate market is heating up and about to hit peak season.

Are you thinking of selling?

Here are five tips to help you achieve a successful summer sale:

1. Get Set
Make a list (and check it twice) of everything that needs to be done. Set selling goals, sale price expectations and finance options. Research real estate agents. Who is dominating in your area? (We have plenty of contacts and can point you in the right direction).

2. Clean + Clear
De-cutter and de-personalise (pay attention to smells, too), stick with a neutral colour palette and make the most of any natural light. You don’t have to redo the whole house.

3. Create an oasis
Ensure the inside of your home is a nice, cool and welcome relief from the sun during inspections. Outside, show off your pool, roll out the barbeque and style up the entertaining areas.

4. Section 32
A Section 32 must be in place before a contact can be signed. We offer this as a FREE service and for private sales, we can prepare the document within 24 hours of receiving all information.

5. Conveyancing
You’ll need a conveyancer with specific legal knowledge and skills to complete the property transaction.

This is where we come in. At Sargeants Geelong, we’ll streamline the process and make it stress-free. Our fees are fixed so there are no surprises and no fees are payable until settlement date therefore if you don’t sell – we don’t charge.

With more than 30 years of experience, you’re in safe hands with us.

Sargeants Geelong would like to thank all of our wonderful clients and supporters for a great 2018, and wish you and your family a wonderful Festive Season. See you in the New Year!
