Have you been contemplating selling your home recently? Let me tell you why selling in the current market is a good idea.
1. THERE ARE LOADS OF BUYERS ABOUT NOW
With low interests rates, there are plenty of buyers out there looking for their first home. We are seeing lots of people at our open homes and people have been ringing us every day asking if we have any new homes coming up.
2. BUYING AND SELLING IN THE SAME MARKET
If you sell your home in the current market, and buy a home in the same market, you are less likely to loose money than if you were to sell in a buyers market and buy in a sellers market. If you buy and sell in the same market, you can take advantage of all the buyers that are currently out there looking for a new home, and you can also purchase a property for a decent price as well.
3. DON'T WAIT - MOVE NOW
Don't wait for perfect market conditions before you sell. If you do this, you could be waiting for a few more years yet. Do you want to be happy in your new home now? Or still sitting around waiting for the right market conditions and being unhappy in your current position?
If you need to move for financial reasons, it's better to sell and move sooner so that you can refinance loans and get back on top of things, rather than waiting until you think your house will be worth more, while paying interest on your current loan. There's every chance that the market could change again and you may not recoup the money you spent on interest while you were waiting for better conditions.
4. WE HAVE LOTS OF BUYERS ON OUR DATABASE
We currently have lots of buyers wanting to purchase a home in the area and we're constantly meeting more buyers every day. This means that if you list your property with us now, we already have a lot of people ready to come to your first open home. Here at Mark Ward Property, we have people ringing us all the time, wanting to know if we have anything new coming up in the area, because they are cashed up and ready to buy. Take advantage of these buyers, as they usually pay more for a home if it means they can buy in the area of their choosing.
5. WE CAN HELP YOU RENOVATE IF NEEDED
If you're waiting to sell because you need to get your property up to scratch first, wait no longer - we have professional tradies on hand, ready to help you renovate your property. We can advise you what needs doing and what you should save your money on. There are some things that just don't need doing when you sell and you can save a lot of money by letting the new owners update the property to their standards.
I hope this blog post has helped to advise you why selling the current market is a great option. If you would like to know what your property is worth, please give me a call on 0414 520 853 to book in for your free property appraisal.
