How to get a great sale price—regardless of the market

May 01, 2020

The media might be full of doom and gloom, but for some sellers the good news just keeps coming! If you’re thinking of selling, our free, instant, online appraisal is the first step! 

The ban on auctions and open inspections has meant a slow autumn selling season for some. Not at Independent. Here’s how our smart selling agents have barely broken stride in the race to rack up great sales results.

While the current selling situation has thrown some agents for a loop, for the Our Team trio it has simply been an opportunity to show how their existing unique, buyer-friendly processes deliver great results.

The buyer of a recent sale in Turner was interstate and unable to travel to view the property. With the buyer-centric tools and willingness to go the extra mile by the agents meant the buyer was confident in exchanging without ever having set foot in the property.

The team put together a comprehensive digital brochure. This marketing tool is extremely thorough and designed to provide buyers all information about the property in a single, mobile friendly resource. As it is delivered via live weblink it gives the flexibility to update any information contained within it including any additional material or points of interest.

The brochure also included a detailed walkthrough video so the buyers could feel like they were at the home in person.

“They loved it,” says Aaron. “The buyer admitted afterwards that they’d watched it about 50 times!”.

The buyers were so keen that they wanted to put in an offer before the property went to auction. Our Team referred them to a solicitor to review the contract and provide a section 17 document, free of charge. This allowed them to waive the cooling-off period and exchange under auction conditions quickly to help them secure the property.

With a buyer’s price guide of: From $350,000, the price achieved of $370,000 was a great result, despite the perceived market challenges.  

"Thank you so much, you are very good at your role and made the process easy and as comfortable as possible. Hope things go well for you and I cannot wait for these restrictions to end." - Caroline, Buyer
