Planning a spring sale? Now is the time to prepare

The spring fashion previews that are starting to pop up online and in retail stores are a reminder that we’re on the home stretch of winter. Before we know it, the days will be getting longer and warmer and our gardens will begin to show the first signs of new life.

With more people out and about and gardens looking their best, it’s not hard to see why the warmer months of the year are traditionally the most popular time to buy and sell real estate.  If you have been waiting for spring to list your property, now is the time to start preparing for it.

From the moment a potential buyer drives by your property, you can be certain they will be inspecting every detail from the outside in.  First impressions go a long way and it’s often the simple, inexpensive things you can do now that will make a potential buyer like what they see and want to see more.

  • De-clutter and do a an early spring clean
  • Make minor repairs if required
  • Clean gutters and windows
  • Plan your spring garden and alfresco space
  • Get us involved early

Our free property advisory service will ensure you’re spending money & time on the right things.

At Shelmark we offer an obligation free property advisory service to those who are thinking of listing their home for sale.  We will meet with you at your property and offer suggestions on what you could do to maximise the appeal of your property to the right buyers and increase your chances of selling quickly and profitably.

We will also let you know what we believe would not be worthwhile spending time and money on from a return on investment point of view.  It’s amazing how many people we come across who have spent money on improvements that were unnecessary for achieving their sales objective.

If you don’t have the time or the expertise to do it all yourself, we can put you in touch with the right people for the job.  Our network of trusted local tradespeople and professionals includes painters, handymen, gardeners, electricians, professional cleaners, home stylists, building and pest inspectors and much more. We can even have the property fully staged for you (ask us what this entails).

Remember, spring will be here before we know it, so start planning now. If you’d like us to assess your property and provide you with a free market appraisal call Shelley on 0417 963 670 or Mark on 0411 552 309.
