Welcome to the series of “How to Get the Highest Price for Your Property”
In this series, I will post articles that will cover everything you need to consider when selling.
Thinking of Selling
If you are like most sellers, the thought of selling your property can be daunting.
We can give you some practical ideas to make the tasks of selecting an agent, working with your agent, and showcasing your property in its finest light, as easy and stress-free as possible.
When it comes to getting the highest price for your property, these are the two things that, more than any others, will optimise your chances of success.
Why are you Selling?
Now before you go thinking that this is none of my business, I put it to you that this is a critical question that you should answer before you begin the selling process, and certainly before you go talking to a real estate agent.
You see, this sale is all about YOU
Will your life improve as a result of the sale of your property?
You should be able to discern a clear and positive reason why you will benefit from this sale.
For example, you might be selling to:
* Upgrade to a larger home to accommodate a growing family
* Reduce financial pressure
* Downsize to a smaller and more manageable home
* Move to a retirement village
In all cases your life should improve once you make the move.
Human beings are goal-oriented creatures. We all need something upon which to set our sights.
If there is a benefit to you in the long run, the selling process will be much easier for you.
You should never put your property on the market with the thought, “If I get my price I’ll sell”, or something similar
Without a clear goal you are wasting your time, emotional energy, and money.
