There is currently a significant shortfall of quality houses for sale in the Perth inner North property market compared to buyer demand.
Whilst this might sound like an ideal time to try selling your property off-market and save on marketing fees, I’m strongly advising potential sellers otherwise. Why?
Because the amazing results we’ve been getting in recent months tell us that you’re likely to achieve a sale price well in excess of your expectations.
The market is changing weekly at the moment and until such time as you hit the market and expose your property to the widest possible buyer pool, you don’t know who is out there and what they might be prepared to pay for your home.
Currently, we’re selling homes for anywhere between 5 to 14% more than what the rational sales evidence would suggest for some properties.
These results don’t happen by chance. They’re the result of great advice, savvy strategies, hard work and active buyer management to ensure we find the best buyer for sellers and not just the first one.
The worst thing you can do is put the wrong agent in front of the right property.
Your home is likely to be your biggest financial asset.
What makes more financial sense – selling off-market in order to try and save a few thousand dollars? Or, taking your property to market so that you’re guaranteed of getting the best price outcome and quite likely making tens of thousands more dollars? That buyer on the agent’s database will be coming to see your home either way.
It’s easy to sell for what seems to be a good price at the moment. Make your agent to do the work and get you a great one.
