Just as we will present your home at its best to the public via our unbeatable marketing and advertising you too can improve the saleability of your home by adopting some of our easy tips:


1. First Impressions are lasting ones. An inviting exterior ensures inspection of the interior. Keep the lawns trimmed, gardens neat, and paths and driveways in good repair.

2. A clean and tidy interior is important in helping sell a house. Marked walls and stained carpet can seriously reduce the saleability of a home. Present your home at its best to achieve a top selling price.

3. Repair that leaking spout or broken light switch. What you know to be a minor problem will seem like a major defect to a prospective buyer.

4. Welcome prospects with the glowing warmth of a well lit home. During the day keep drapes and blinds open and in the evening hours be sure the porch and interior lighting shows of and off every sparkling corner of your home.

5. Mellow music in the background is delightful, but loud radios and televisions may prevent good communication between the prospect and the sales person.

6. In Winter and in Ararat a nice warm home is most inviting and will often swing a sale.

7. Love me… Love my dog - doesn’t apply when selling a house. Keep Fido out of the way and preferably out of the house.

8. Do not “tag” along with a prospective buyer and our Sales Consultant. Remember: you are employing us to sell your house. We are experts so let us do the job for you.


We usually interview the prospective buyer: thus we know what he/she wants, what to say, and the right time to say it. Preferably leave the house during inspections (or stay in the background). We have further tips which we will present to you regarding how to maximise your sale result when listing your property with us.
