Tips I use to achieve the maximum price possible Have a very prominent internet marketing campaign. Ideally premier or highlight listing on Realestate.com.au Increase your buyer activity by having less emphasis on the price. This would be by marketing without a price or have price guide with a range of 10% with a recent sales report for reference. Buyers can then look at recent sales very similar to what’s on offer and show their interest accordingly. “If you get the right people to the right property you will get the right price” Create a “fact sheet” for your property showing in detail what your property has to offer. I have seen many a time where a sale has been negotiated and after settlement has taken place, the buyers has discovered more than they knew about ie solar system, heating for spa, recently installed new hot water system to name a few. If the buyers were aware of these and all other aspects of the property their offer on the property could have been somewhat higher. Don’t be home or be rushing out when an inspection is taking place. Prepare and allow the buyer plenty of time to take it all in. If a buyer is allowed to “mentally move in” they are more likely to want to purchase. Be flexible on terms. Work with potential buyers. If you can fit into their requirements e.g settlement time, you are more likely to receive a favourable offer for your property. Select an agent that is an experienced negotiator and is prepared to fight for you to achieve the maximum price possible. Structure your success fee or commission so that the agent has the best interest to get “top dollar”.
I have great pleasure in writing this letter of recommendation for Monty Van Dyk. We have recently purchased a property through Monty and found the experience surprisingly easy and enjoyable. His approach to negotiating was refreshing and we felt that he cared about us as the buyer as well as the seller. We felt he was genuinely looking to find a sale that was fair to both parties. He was accommodating with any additional requests we asked for and helping in arranging access for the required inspecions. He kept us informed along the way of the buying process and acted in a courteous, respectful and professional manner. We have no hesitation in recommending Monty to our friends and family and would use Monty ourselves to sell our home in the future. J Wentworth Brisbane
Thank you Monty for being such a great help in selling our business. We have been very worried about what to do but you made it so easy for us and we cannot thank you enough. I am so excited to go on our much anticipated holiday now, Thank you again and i promise to send you a postcard!! Wishing you all the best for the future Sharon and Mick
I am writing to thank Monty for selling our 2 investment properties. I know it was not an easy task as they both had their share of issues but thankfully you never gave up and we got them both sold in the end. I just want to say i appreciate your persistance with both contracts and i am sure most agents would have walked away given the circumstances as we had previously listed them with other agents with no luck at all. Thank you so much again Allison
