Tops tips on selling your home - RetireAustralia

If you’re thinking about making a move, whether into a retirement village or a new home, here are some of Sellable’s top tips.

1. Declutter and tidy

Ensure the house is clean and tidy and show off your home’s space, potential and versatility by putting away personal items and clearing surfaces of clutter.

2. Make first impressions count

Your home’s façade and garden will be the first thing a potential buyer sees, so make sure their first impression is a good one.

Mow the lawn, sweep the driveway, prune trees, clean gutters and trim hedges. Fresh paint on the walls, doors, gates, fences and window frames can also boost external appeal.

3. Only make valuable improvements

Fix issues like broken fittings, cracked tiles, faulty lights and tapware. Minor repairs can go a long way for just a little money.

Spruce up your entryway, kitchen and bathroom–three key rooms that drive selling prices–but stick to the smart uplifts.

4. Focus on the details

The smallest detail can make a big difference during an open house, so pay attention to lighting, smell and temperature.

5. Hire an experienced agent

An experienced real estate agent with knowledge of the local market can help you set realistic pricing and generate competition among buyers.

If selling your home sounds like a hassle, Sellable can pay you upfront and take care of everything for you.*
