7 Steps To A Great Sale!

Dedicated Sales Professionalism. High Performance Marketing.
Perfect Preparation. Proven Performance.

  • 1.  Choose A Professional Sales Agent .

    Choosing the right Agent is vital to your best interests and a decision that is based on business sense, because selling your property is all about business. You want an Agent who is totally dedicated to achieving the very best result for you and has the ability, determination and expertise to do so. While it's nice to like your Agent it is not paramount, all that is important is that your property sells for the highest price possible, within your time frame and without adding stress. There are lots of people in Real Estate but few who meet this criteria.

  • 2. CMA, Price & Marketing Plan.

    Your Professional Sales Agent will have presented you with an in-depth Comparative Market Analysis and together you will have agreed the selling price to be achieved. The next step will be to implement a Marketing Strategy to impact the maximum number of potential buyers. Keep in mind that "perception is reality" and counts all the way to the bank!

  • 3. Prepare For Success!

    Your Professional Sales Agent will provide you with expert guidance on how you can help prepare your property for sale. A great time to practice this is before the photographer arrives to take your marketing images. Even if you are on a tight budget you can make a difference that could be worth thousands. Whether a small Unit or Luxury Mansion your property should be presented to generate maximum appeal to every potential buyer.

  • 4. Check Out Your Web Listings.

    As soon as your Professional Sales Agent has let you know that your property is featured on the internet you should check out the photos and selling copy (descriptive text) to make certain that every fact, feature and benefit is presented. Give your feedback to the Agent and make positive suggestions if necessary.  If your marketing strategy includes local press advertising, letterbox drop flyers, video clips and Social Media your Agent will similarly advise and provide you with the opportunity to comment.

  • 5.  When Buyers Come Calling.

    The best thing for you to do is not to be at home when your property is scheduled to be visited by potential buyers, leave everything to your Professional Sales Agent. You will be informed about the number of visitors and reaction to your property after each Open Home, so keep a low profile. If you get any "back door" approaches you should advise them to contact your Agent rather than get involved, as people who do this are often only fishing for information.

  • 6. When The Offers Arrive.

    Your Professional Sales Agent knows only too well the difference between a "cheeky offer" and one from a serious buyer who really wants your property. However, as it is only right that you are advised when every offer is received you should discuss these with your Agent and review each on their merits. Keep in mind, you have appointed an Agent to negotiate on your behalf and to get the best possible price for you. When an acceptable offer to you has been negotiated then let "your Yes mean Yes" and instruct your Agent accordingly. Sure you can take some time to think things over, but when you have made your decision then set it in concrete so that your Agent can conclude business on your behalf.

  • 7. Concluding Contracts And Settlement

    Your Professional Sales Agent will make certain that all of the required inspections and approvals are actioned, assuming these are fine then the contact will be forwarded to your Legal Representatives for your signature. The buyer receives their copy of the same and both signs and approves the financial side of their purchase. Your Agent will provide you with a thorough analysis of the monies you receive from your sale. Success!

Selling Hints & Tips

To get the best possible price for your property, you'll need to make sure that your place looks good from the street as well as inside. Here are a few hints to help you make your home more appealing to potential buyers;

Indoors. Give each room a thorough cleaning and clear away any clutter. Consider having your carpets steam cleaned. Fix any loose or squeaky flooring. Check that all the doors and windows open easily and that all door handles are in good repair. Clean all windows to allow in maximum light. You'll need to repair any damaged tiling or wallpaper and you should think about painting any chipped walls.


Storage areas. Make sure these are tidy and well arranged to give the impression of more space. This is a good time to get rid of odds and ends.


Plumbing, air conditioning and fans. Make sure there are no dripping taps or pipes. Consider having airconditioners serviced before you put your property on the market. All ceiling fans need to be operational, clean and run quietly.


Plants. These can add a lot to the appeal of a house. If you haven't got any, think about buying some to brighten up your property.


Lights and light fittings. Check that all the lights are working and replace any blown globes. The fittings and switches need to be clean and in good condition too.


Carpets. If you have carpets, you should have them professionally cleaned to make them look their best.


Kitchen. The stove, refrigerator and sink all need to be at their sparkling best to make this room attractive. Clear the benches as much as possible to make it look larger.


Just before inspection. Put clean towels in the bathroom and clean tea towels in the kitchen. If your budget will stretch to it, buy new towels in a colour that complements your bathroom and put them out during inspections.


Air & Aroma. You could put a few drops of vanilla essence in a hot oven, brew some coffee or light an oil burner. Open all the curtains and blinds and switch on inside lights to make the house look light and airy. 


Pets. Restrain any pets, unfortunately not everyone is an animal lover.


Switch off the television. You might want to put some quiet background music on to create a positive atmosphere.




Fences. Make sure the fences are in good condition. Carry out repairs such as straightening loose posts and repairing holes.


Lawns. Make sure you keep your lawns neatly trimmed, including the edges. It also adds appeal if your lawns are green and weed free.


Paths, driveways and paved areas. Clean up any grease or oil marks. Remove all weeds from any cracks or joins. Keep these areas swept and tidy while your property is on the market.


Gardens. Keep your garden weed free and make sure your plants look healthy. Put down fresh mulch to make the gardens look well cared for, inhibit weed growth and reduce the amount of watering needed. If you've got bare patches, consider picking up some bright flowers. Trim back any climbing plants that may have got out of control.


Trees and shrubs. Trim back any branches that are dead or too 'leggy'. Remove any limbs that block sun to windows. This will help make your home more appealing inside.


Pools and ponds. Make sure your pool is clean and sparkling. Any fish ponds and birdbaths need to be clean and clear of weeds.


Patios and decks. To make these areas look their look best, make sure furniture is in good repair. The area should be clean and free from clutter. A few pot plants can add extra appeal.


The building exterior. Wash the walls, eaves and windows, or hire a professional to do it. If the paintwork is flaking don't decide to repaint without discussing it with your agent, it may not be worth the cost involved. Repair any broken windows and replace damaged flyscreens. 


The yard . Make sure there is no rubbish or junk left lying around. If you have compost heaps, make sure they are neat and not attracting vermin or bugs. Make sure your sprinkler system is in good working order.


Garage or car port. Remove as much clutter as possible to make these areas look larger. Check the garage door moves smoothly and any locks are in working condition.


Drains and guttering. Make sure your guttering and drains are clean and clear of leaves or any other blockages.

Free Market Appraisal. CMA

There's a big difference between a standard appraisal and a CMA!


Free Market Appraisal Or CMA?

Comparative Market Analysis. When the time comes to sell your property you must have the most accurate possible information at your fingertips, not just another "best guess" Appraisal that has been hurriedly cobbled together.


Integral to the professional preparation of the data about your house a CMA can directly contribute to you achieving the HIGHEST POSSIBLE SALE PRICE. 

A Comparative Market Analysis is an in-depth correlation of data and local information that will give you a competitive edge in today's property market. The transaction sales history of your property is researched and compared to the most recent sales both close to home and nearby. From this data an initial minimum to maximum selling price range is calculated.  


The facts, property statistics, recent market fluctuations, area demographics and the potential BUYER POOL are all analysed in depth in order to provide you, at no charge, with a thorough Comparative Market Analysis. If you are serious about selling your property a CMA is an absolute must.  

Yes! For serious property vendors who have made the decision to sell their property an extensive Comparative Market Analysis is provided Free


Simply click on button link below and a simple easy form will be displayed on screen. Complete the form and very soon you will be contacted to arrange a person to person meeting to review your CMA.   

Investing In Property

Your Future Wealth

Investing in property has many benefits, including capital growth. Property has been a popular route to wealth for many Australians for many years. Buying their own home is often the first investment many people make; purchasing another property may well be the second even before shares and other assets.

So when the time comes that you want to find a property suitable for investment I will be delighted to help.  Please keep in mind that you should seek legal and professional advice at all times, I will be only too pleased to chat about your objectives and help as much as I can.  


Investing Info Guide

The following information is provided to give you some helpful background information about planning and building your property investment portfolio. Please note you should seek legal and professional guidance at all times and that legislation and interpretation of this content may be subject to change.

Your first investment in property needn't be your home. Buying an apartment to rent out can be a good way to accumulate funds so you can buy your own place. Increasing numbers of young Australians are choosing this route, buying in one area while renting in a more expensive area or living at home for a while longer.


Capital Growth. Capital growth is the increase in the value of your property over time and is one of the main reasons people invest in residential real estate. Historically, Australian residential property has experienced strong capital growth the long-term average annual growth rate for property is about 9 per cent but periods of stagnation and even decline are also part of the picture. The nature of the property cycle means real estate should probably be thought of as an investment with a 10-year horizon. 


Your best chance of achieving capital growth is buying the right property, in the right place, and most importantly at the right price. Research current house prices. Keep an eye on sale and auction results in the papers, or buy reports on specific suburbs from researchers like Australian Property Monitors Home Price Guide. Talk to us about recent sales prices in your desired area.  


Rental Income And Yield. You should apply the same standards to a property investment as to any other investment, benchmarking the potential return against what you might achieve elsewhere. An important measure is a property's yield.


That can be calculated by dividing the annual rent it generates by the price you paid for the property and multiplying that by 100 to get a percentage figure. Lets say you bought a unit for $400,000 and rented it out for $350 a week (or $18,200 a year). That's a yield of 4.5 per cent. But lets say you bought a workers cottage in a mining town where prices are low but the rental income as good as in the big city. Pay $350,000 and rent the property out for $600 a week and you will achieve a yield of 9 per cent. 


Remember, yield falls as house prices rise (if rent does not rise commensurably). If landlords have to fight for tenants, they wont have much pricing power with regard to rent. However, if the rental market is tight, and tenants are competing for properties, they will be prepared to pay a bit more to get in the door. 


TAX

Negative Gearing. Gearing basically means borrowing to invest. Negative gearing is when the costs of investing are higher than the return you achieve. With an investment property, that's when the annual net rental income is less than the loan interest plus the deductible expenses associated with maintaining the property. 


When your negatively geared you can deduct the costs of owning your investment property from your overall income reducing your tax bill. High-income earners benefit the most, because they are in the top tax bracket. In addition, while you record a loss on the income from the property, in theory capital gains in the value of your property should make the investment worthwhile.


But don't over-commit to property just to get a tax deduction. Those tax benefits generally don't come until the end of the financial year and you have to make your mortgage payments in the meantime. That said, you can apply to have less tax deducted from your pay to take into account the impact on your overall income of expected losses on an investment property. 


Say you earn $45,000 a year, gross, in your day job but you can reliably estimate that you'll make a $15,000 loss on an investment property. You can apply to have your tax payments calculated on an income of $30,000 rather than $45,000 giving you more cash in hand now, rather than a refund at the end of the year. Get your sums wrong, though, and you will owe the tax man money at the end of the year.


See www.ato.gov.au for information about pay-as-you-go (PAYG) withholding payments. Remember, too, that a capital gain which will be taxed is never assured. What is more, the benefits of negative gearing are smaller when interest rates and inflation are low and can be offset by charges such as the land tax levied.


Depreciation. The owners of investment properties can also claim depreciation of items such as stoves, refrigerators and furniture. That involves writing off the cost of the item over a set number of years the effective life of the asset. The ATO sets out what it considers to be appropriate periods. The cost of a cook top, for instance, is generally written off over 12 years you claim one-twelfth of its cost as an expense each year. 


There are two different types of depreciation an allowance for assets such as the cook top, and an allowance for capital works, such as the cost of construction. Its a good idea to talk to a quantity surveyor or other depreciation specialist right from the start, so you make full and correct use of the available depreciation allowances. The higher the depreciation bill, the higher the amount to offset against income when you're negative gearing.


Capital Gains Tax. Capital gains tax (CGT) is the tax charged on capital gains that arise from the disposal of an asset including investment property, but not your place of residence acquired after September 19, 1985. You're liable for CGT if your capital gains exceed your capital losses in an income year. (If you're smart, you'll time asset disposals so that if you really must take a capital loss it'll be at a time when it can offset a capital gain).


The capital gain on an investment property acquired on or after October 1, 1999, and held for at least a year, is taxed at only half the rate otherwise. This means a maximum rate of 24.25 per cent if you are in the highest tax bracket. The capital gain is the profit you've made over and above the cost base the purchase price plus capital expenses such as subsequent renovations. Make sure you keep good records of these sorts of expenses. Capital gains tax is a complex area, so it pays to get specific advice about how it applies in your individual circumstances. 


Making Your Investment Pay. If you hold your investment property for long enough, hopefully you'll reach the stage where losses start turning into gains. The rent you're charging should have risen over time, and you'll be steadily whittling away at the mortgage. Once your rental income exceeds your mortgage repayments you'll no longer be negatively geared, however. And no negative gearing means no tax advantages but that doesn't mean you should rush to sell.


Yes, you'll have to pay more tax because the income you're making is more than your losses but the fact is you're making money, which is why you invested in the first place. The temptation may be to take your profits and plough them into another property and that can be a perfectly reasonable strategy.


Seek professional and legal advice at all times!


Good buys aren't necessarily close to home. Having worked through the financial considerations, and bearing in mind that you are not actually going to live in the property, you should be able to make a fairly rational decision about where and what to buy. You'll want to benefit from as much capital growth as possible, so the first rule is to buy in a growth area. That might be a suburb located within 10 kilometres of the city centre, or a suburb with special attractions such as a beach or trendy cafe strip. Proximity to a hot suburb could mean your suburb will be next to rise in value. It could even be a regional town supporting a booming industry.


Narrow your search down even further by looking at a property's access to transport, shops and leisure facilities and its appeal to your market whether they're young professionals or blue-collar workers. Another decision is what to buy house or unit? old or new? Units usually are a much better proposition for landlords. They are easier to rent out and easier to maintain: there's no lawn to mow, and when things go wrong in the building the expense is shared with the other owners.


Properties with a view are always more desirable than those without, and tenants like facilities such as balconies, internal laundries, undercover parking and security. These sorts of facilities may not be available in an older property, which may have to compete with a new apartment building down the road with all the mod-cons. If the property you're interested in is already rented, ask about its history of tenancy. Have there been periods when it hasn't been occupied? If so, find out why. You don't want to inherit those problems. The bottom line: balance what you can afford to buy with the rent you'll be able to charge. There's no point buying a waterfront property if you cant find tenants happy to pay the sort of rent you'll need to make the exercise worthwhile.


Buying. Once you've found the right property, the actual mechanics of buying it will be the same as if you were buying a home to live in. There are few differences between borrowing for a home and borrowing for an investment property. Some lenders charge a higher interest rate for investment properties because they say their risk is higher, but shop around and you should be able to get a rate that's the same as for an owner-occupied property. 


One option of particular interest to investors is the interest-only loan, where you don't pay off any of the principal, just the interest. Such a loan can make it easier to estimate the true returns from a property. A tax advantage is that interest payments for investment properties are tax deductible, while payments off the principal are not. One strategy that is being touted is to take out an interest-only loan and divert the money you would have paid off the principal to your tax-efficient superannuation fund. Upon retirement, you use your super pays off the loan. Remember, though, that this money is locked up until at least age 55 and you wont have access to it if you strike a cash-flow problem.

Buying Property


Buying Hints & Tips

Whether you are buying an investment property or a new home, there are some common challenges you need to be aware of to ensure your purchasing experience is stress and risk free. These few buying tips are designed to help you make buying your new home a pleasure.

Why Are You Buying? Think about why you are purchasing the property. If you intend living in the property does it really suit your needs? If you have young children or elderly people living with you, you might wish to avoid stairs and prefer a level block. Do you intend to install a pool in the future? Is the garden too big or too small? Will you need more bedrooms in future? Is it close to schools etc. 


Building Reports. Be sure to have reports for building inspection and pest inspection prior to committing to the purchase. 


Meet Your Neighbours. If you are buying a villa, apartment or town house you may be sharing a common wall with your neighbours. It would be advisable to check noise levels if possible. Try to meet your new neighbours. They may not share the same values as you. 


Do Your Research. By researching the real estate market in a particular area you will be much better informed on property values. Ask the SUPERVISING AGENT of this web site to provide you information about comparable properties which have sold in the area.


Check With Your Local Council. If a property has been renovated recently you might wish to check with the local council to ensure planning or building permits were approved. Deciding how much to offer can be difficult. You might wish to make your best offer up front or start with a lower offer and be prepared to negotiate up. However, purchasers who make higher offers might secure the property without giving you the opportunity to increase yours.

Buying At Auction. If buying at auction you should have; 


        1. Decided on a definite upper limit within your means

        2. Conducted inspections

        3. Had legal documents checked by your solicitor

        4. Organised a cheque for the deposit 

        5. The finance pre-approved


When bidding, bid with confidence and authority
