Local Market Update

During the first half of 2020, demand remained slow due to various factors including a softening of investor demand in the residential market, and uncertainty during the COVID-19 lockdown. However, it's important to note that the Australian real estate market has been particularly resilient in a time of unprecedented day-to-day unease.

The suspension of the short-term rental market, and a drop in active student renters and international visitors, combined with a significant increase in vacancies has particularly impacted the investor market in a way which yet to fully bounce back.

Over this period, values in the general residential market have stabilised or declined, and selling periods have lengthened [or stalled]. An air of hesitancy still exists, due to the continuing hibernation of some businesses and industries, and some are adopting a 'wait and see' approach to real estate and financial matters until September.

This is somewhat balanced by discretionary sellers and buyers who see opportunity making moves while the market is quieter. In addition, there has been a sweeping increase of interest in home-based lifestyle and a renewed focus on renovation due to the lockdown. This means some sellers are now achieving outstanding results, however, overall the market is yet to return to it's previous heights and activity levels in most areas.

About Your Property

Key Features


Poised on the high side of the street on a sunny parcel with brilliant exposure to the Northerly sun, your property is a full brick classic bungalow offering untapped potential to update/modernise or rebuild (STCA). Benefiting from a dual street frontage, it features charming retained period features and comfortable interiors across a practical single level layout.

The Right Pricing Strategy

Your Property Appraisal


Having compared your home with recent sales and from our experience, we estimate that, in the current market, a reasonable price expectation for 101 Simpson Street, WELLINGTON would be in the vicinity of:

$560,000 to $590,000.

However, we do not simply wish to limit ourselves to this range, and assure you that it is always our goal to achieve the maximum price possible for each and every property we market. Predominantly, we do this by providing the best marketing and advertising and most comprehensive access to prospective buyers in the country, ensuring our properties are high on the viewing lists of every prospective purchaser searching in the area.

Disclaimer - The appraisal figure in this letter represents an estimate of the sale price the above property could reasonably expect to achieve in the current market. This estimate is provided free of charge and is not to be construed as being a valuation. It is valid for 30 days from the date of this appraisal.

"The pricing of your property in relation to market value will have a direct impact on the number of interested buyers."

Choosing the Best Method of Sale

Maximising Interest & Offers

Based on current market conditions, and the unique and very special features of your property, we recommend the following the method/s of sale as the best way to maximise the sale price. Involving a high impact, layered marketing strategy with an online focus to entice existing buyers, as well as attract new buyers in the market place, this strategy will cast the widest possible net from which to generate competition.


Auction

Popular in most areas, the main benefit of Auction for a seller is the opportunity to create open competition between buyers for the property to achieve the highest possible sale price.. With a set auction timeline creating urgency and the requirement for potential purchasers to act on their interest, Auction is a popular choice in a buoyant market for sellers looking for top dollar within a known (but not guaranteed) timeframe and no cooling off period.

Private Treaty

Offering the property to the market with a set price or price range via Private Treaty allows sellers to comfortably negotiate the sale terms and price without the time pressures. This prominent method has resulted in countless, very successful sales as its open pricing is attractive to many buyers who are looking in the nominated range, and can still result in competitive offers and negotiations between interested parties.

Expressions of Interest / Tender

The process for this method of sale can vary significantly, so be sure to discuss your preferences with us. Most often Tenders require potential purchasers to put one best and final offer for the property in writing and the party with the terms most favourable to the seller is the eventual buyer. Expressions of Interest can sometimes work the same way or, from time to time, it is simply a way of attracting buyers to express their interest at the beginning of the negotiating process for a property marketed without an advertised price.

Off Market

Before commencing the official marketing campaign, we recommend allowing time to present your property to our huge database of highly motivated buyers. Keen to find their perfect property, we sometimes see these buyers paying a premium to secure new properties before they officially hit the market - resulting in a great outcome for all parties.

Pricing Without Limits

Benefits of Auction

Creates Competition

The very nature of an auction drawing together all interested parties together at the same time often leads to transparent competition among buyers pushing up the sales price. People often pay more when they sense competition, and this ' now or never ' scenario heightens this effect even further.

Priceless Marketing

This strategy of putting a property to market without a negotiable price, casts a wide net for buyers. Attracting interest from a wide range of potential purchasers gives more opportunity for people to fall I love with your property and compete to secure it for themselves at auction.

Creates Urgency

Whereas other methods of sale, such as private treaty, have an open-ended timeline for negotiating a sale, Auction creates a requirement for interested parties to act on their interest by a specific time. Rather than a drawn-out sales process, everyone is working towards a successful outcome by a known time.

No Cooling Off

Another benefit of auction is the final nature of the sale when it is achieved 'under the hammer'. Properties sold in this manner are not subject to a cooling off period and, so, it is very rare for a buyer not to complete a sale made using this method.

Removes Issue of Price

Auction removes many of the issues around aiming for the highest sale price without overpricing. Particularly important with properties that have unique features and/or outlooks which may be difficult to value precisely, auctions allow the market to reveal the highest possible price. You don't have to set the reserve price until just prior to the auction itself, and this method of sale allows you to receive the benefits of weeks of feedback from the market about the potential pricing before you have to make a determination.

Auction Timeline

3 Opportunities to Sell

When you market your property for auction, you are not limited to just the Auction day for achieving a successful sale.

  • 1

    Pre Auction Offers

    Often serious buyers will offer a premium price for a property so they can secure it before the auction.

  • 2

    AUCTION DAY

    Creates the ultimate competitive setting for potential purchasers to act on their interest.

  • 3

    Post Auction Offers

    Many sales are made just after an auction, when some buyers hold back but are still keen to purchase.

Buyers Ready & Waiting

Your Target Market

Comments

First Home Buyers

In the current market, affordability is a consideration for first home buyers but it is certainly not the only one. With many first time purchasers being older and more established than in the past, a significant portion also seek a stepping stone property or room to grow. They value the opportunity to add their own touches and equity through home improvements and, as a result, can be very competitive buyers when the right property enters the market.

Comments

Investors

Picking properties and localities with potential for long-term growth or high tenant demand are the cornerstones of investing. Proximity to infrastructure such as public transport, universities, hospitals, work hubs etc, is often important as it adds to tenant demand and, therefore, potential rent returns. More recently, capital growth rather than immediate returns have been driving investment which has opened up the market for the sale of properties not traditionally regarded as attracting investors.

Comments

Downsizing

There are a multitude of reasons why purchasers look to downsize, but one thing they nearly all share is a desire to “downsize but not downgrade” - both in their property and their quality of life. This buyer segment most often looks to purchase a smaller property but one which still offers a similar good condition, room for visitors, low-maintenance living, quality fixtures, and modern conveniences. They are increasing in numbers and, therefore, in competition for suitable properties.

Comments

Professional Couples

Professional couples are most often aspirational buyers who look for smart and attractive properties which support their professional and social lifestyles. Convenience is a key consideration as they like to be close to work, public transport, shops, restaurants and cafes etc, as well as a property which is well presented, contemporary (or modernised), and low-maintenance with entertaining areas inside or out.

Comments

Students

Requiring proximity to their campus or to direct transport links, students are also seeking lifestyle amenities such as cafes, nightlife, shops and other like-minded students when they are looking for property. Affordability is most often the main consideration, but frequently we see students settle on a property which stretches their budgets but provides access to the lifestyle and neighbourhood which most appeals to them.

Comments

Families

As a large demographic, families make up a significant portion of today’s buyer market. The key criteria they seek are a size which suits their needs, family-appropriate floorplans, comfortable living, smart storage solutions, and a location close to their preferred schools, shops, friends and other families. Single, unattached dwellings on a good size lot are usually highly sought after, however, there is an ever-increasing trend of families seeking medium and high density housing.

Comments

Large Families

Large families usually have a precise requirements and considerations when they are looking for property to purchase. So, when they find the home which suits their needs, they are keen and confident purchasers. High on their lists is a sense of spaciousness, multiple living arrangements, numerous bedrooms and bathrooms. Multi-generational families are a segment of this market which values floor plans that combine space with privacy - such as separate granny flats, dual entry properties, and flexible layouts.

Comments

Retirees

A growing proportion of the population, retirees have specific, well-defined needs from their property. They are often on the lookout for smaller, low-maintenance, single level living with security and convenience as key requirements. With a view to their future, they usually prefer lower ongoing costs, nearby shops, transport, hospitals etc. while staying in or moving to neighbourhoods near their existing ties.

Presentation & Preparation

Tips for Increasing Appeal

One way you can contribute to the final sale price of your home in a big way is turning your attention to how your property is presented. Because, ultimately, all buyers are looking for the best value and the property that best suits their wants and needs. Here are some subtle changes that will make your home stand out in photos, video and in person - inspiring potential purchasers to view and imagine themselves living there as a result.

First Impressions First

Remember, when buyers search for property, they want to find something to fall in love with instantly - they want to know right away this is "the one". They are often emotionally driven, even when they are looking with finances in mind, and that's where creating a high-impact, well-considered first impression counts.

Light The Way For Buyers

Light creates vibrancy, warmth, and brightness in a property - all things buyers prize during their search. Provide direct sunlight into the property, opening blinds and curtains where you can. We will discuss with you when the best time of day is to show your home to capitalise on this. And during darker times, switch on the lights to create a warm welcome for your potential purchasers.

Small Repairs = Big Difference

When you've lived with something for a while, it can be easy to not notice small changes over time or grow used to the way things become. Buyers, however, are looking at all the details with a keen perspective. Try using "fresh eyes" to make review including all the functional items - door slides, hardware, taps, fittings, screens etc - and make any small repairs now.

Creating a WOW Factor

As experienced agents, we understand the power of hearing a buyer utters a "wow" when they see something that really appeals to them in a property - and it doesn't have to be a glamorous or expensive element to illicit this reaction. Whether it's a large yard, a kitchen island, a spa deck, a storage area under the stairs, or a big windows, identify where you can create the WOW factor in your property (we will help with this) and take the time to stage it to perfection.

Your Place or Mine?

No doubt you've heard about the benefits of a good declutter, but it's never been more important than when you are offering your home for sale. It's not about stripping out the warmth and personality of your property - it's about carefully selecting and leaving only items which contribute to the overall lifestyle a buyer is looking for. Buyers like to picture themselves living in a place, and removing personal items helps.

Space is Key

Space of all types is the key to creating a property popular with buyers - room to move during an open for inspection means plenty of room for everyday living, as does allowing for a flow of potential purchasers through the home where possible. After all, very few buyers object to too much space - whether it's in cupboards, an abundance of storage, or a sense of roominess. Take away and reorganise or rearrange items in your home accordingly.

Clean Up to Clean Up

More than just a wipe down we recommend giving your home a deep clean from top to bottom before putting it on the market. From the light fittings to the carpets, and paying particular attention deep clean every element in the kitchen and bathroom, this big effort pays big dividends. It speaks volumes to potential purchasers about the overall appeal, condition and care of the home they are looking to buy.

Finishing Touches

Finally before you open your home and launch it onto the market for sale, take a moment to step back and consider it anew as if you were looking at the home to purchase it. Enliven the atmosphere where you can with some finishing touches such as cleaning the windows, freshening up the bedrooms and bathrooms with your best linens, removing all the day-to-day items from kitchen and bathroom countertops. It all contributes to presenting your property as a desirable place to own.

Professional Styling Option

Styling to Sell for More

When it comes to selling property in our competitive marketplace, it's essential that your property is finessed look its best from the get-go. That's why some sellers choose to use professional home staging and styling to help their property stand out from the crowd, and showcase the enviable lifestyle it offers.

From eye-catching campaign photos through to immaculate open home viewings, the purpose of interior styling for sale is to create an immediate emotional response from the buyer as they walk through the front door, and continue to capture their attention and hearts as they make their way through your home.

By highlighting the positive features, and diverting attention from or overcoming any challenging aspects it may have, professional styling can be an extremely influential tool to sell your property. Whether your property is empty, or full of your current possessions, they offer an experienced eye for precisely what's needed to best to present your home to the market with maximum appeal.

If you choose to have your property professionally staged, we will make all of the arrangements for you, working with the Styling Team to ensure your property looks it's most appealing.
