Their extensive knowledge of the local market market mean that Sherelle and Don are the best possible team for selling a property. Sherelle took on our property to sell during the worst possible time in the market (going into winter at the beginning of the property downturn). Sherelle was professional, positive and resourceful. We trusted her experience and were very happy with the outcome.” - Sarah & Chris

Have you completed a self-inspection of a property and now you're very interested in purchasing it? Here are some next steps that we suggest you take:

👉 Get a LIM from the local council. Land Information Memoranda (LIM) are comprehensive reports containing all relevant information the Council knows about a property or section. This can include what structures have or haven’t been approved and signed off by the council or potential developments planned for nearby.

👉 Get a builder in to do a proper inspection. Walk through the property with them. Ask any questions you want. They know what can be done cheaply and what may need to be budgeted. They’ll know what can be easily changed and what can’t.

They will listen to your needs and record your criteria such as; location, number of bedrooms, price etc. These experienced agents may bring up criteria you hadn’t thought about.

They will then go to work for you to find what properties are on the market or, in some cases, soon to be on the market that may meet your needs.

When looking through a potential home take your time. Pause at the gate and take in the first impression. As you walk through the home try to imagine what it would look like with your furniture in it. Would it fit?

Sit down in the living areas and have a good look around at everything from the floors to the ceilings.

Calculate where the sun will come from in winter and summer. Walk right around the outside of the house.

Think about what maintenance needs to be done and whether you can do it or do you need to budget to get a professional in.

Ask about what schools are in zone, and the proximity to local shops, bus routes and motorway access.

💰Finance💰
It is always best to establish how much you can afford to spend on your new home. Your bank or mortgage broker will want to know what you earn and what your expenses are so they can help you calculate how much you can borrow and what your repayments would be.

There are a few things you can do to make sure your open home goes on without a hitch...
👉 Try to be out of the home when buyers inspect as they will feel more comfortable.
👉 Make sure the home is a comfortable temperature.
👉 Open curtains to allow as much light as possible.
👉 Brew some coffee before each open home (freshly ground is the best) – the aroma creates pleasant associations for the buyer.
👉 Ensure we know what makes your house a home – explain why it has that special ‘feel’ for you, point out its highlights. This will also help the photographer.

With all Sherelle’s experience, we were able to leave everything in their capable hands. They were at all times so helpful and supportive, nothing was too much trouble, the best agents we have ever had sell a house for us. We will definitely be recommending them to anyone we know thinking of selling. A 3 week campaign of open homes, then auction with the best auctioneer and the sold sign was up. Thank you Sherelle and Don for such a successful stress-free outcome.” - Pat & Ron
