There are still many buyers coming through Open Homes and we haven’t got all the houses needed.

I thought I’d give you a quick update on buyers I’m currently working with who are in a strong position to buy.

At this stage, they have not found a property to suit their needs and I thought you’d like to know just in case you might consider bringing your property to the market this Spring / Summer to take advantage of this level of activity.

Here’s a snapshot of what they are looking for:

Mr J: 3-4 Bed, at least 2 baths, in specific school zone of Rototuna. Preferably brick with 600m2 plus section.

Mr and Mrs S: A property with renovation potential in the following 3 suburbs: Hillcrest, Chedworth, Queenwood. Price-wise they are looking to invest between $600,000 and $900,000.

Mr and Mrs M: An older style house on large section, looking to do a development – investment project within a 5km range of the city.

If you or anyone you know has a property that meets these needs, I’d love to talk with you. If you would like to know what your property is worth call me for a free appraisal.

In the meantime, enjoy living in this great Region of ours!

Thanks for your time.

PS If you or any friends, family members or colleagues would like any advice on buying, selling or renting property I’d be happy to help.

Make Your Open Home A Success

Open homes are an important way to catch the eye of potential buyers and invite them to fall in love with your property.
Here are 10 top tips to ensure your home makes the right kind of first impression with house hunters.

Open homes are an important way to catch the eye of potential buyers and invite them to fall in love with your property.
Here are 10 top tips to ensure your home makes the right kind of first impression with house hunters.

1. Lighten up
Make the home feel open and inviting by turning the lights on and opening curtains and blinds. On a sunny day open doors leading to outdoor entertaining areas.

2. De-personalise
Buyers want to picture themselves living in a property, so remove anything that’s too personal, like family photos.

3. De-clutter
Less is more. Remove ornaments that make the place feel cluttered, keep the kitchen benches clear, tidy the pantry and get rid of coats or shoes you usually keep by the front door.

4. Think about the small things
Small touches can make all the difference. Make your bathrooms look nice by removing half-empty shampoo bottles from the shower, tuck away your toothbrushes, put out fresh towels, remove washing from the line and pop the toilet seat down.

5. Increase street appeal
Make a good first impression by ensuring the front of your property is tidy and well presented. A fresh lick of paint on the front fence and front door, waterblasting decks, driveways, paths and a house wash are easy ways of making the place look its best. Consider hiring some eye-catching potted plants to cost-effectively add a drop of style.

6. Clean up
It might seem obvious, but give the place a thorough spring clean. That includes organising the insides of your cupboards and wardrobes as house hunters will take a peek inside.

7. Think about your pets
Sure, you love the family poodle, but potential buyers might not. Get the carpet shampooed to remove any odours and keep your pets off the property during open homes.

8. Make every room count
Buyers won’t be able to picture themselves hosting a dinner party if your dining room is piled high with storage boxes or filing cabinets. Make sure every room is selling itself. Put beds in all the bedrooms and clear out the “stuff” that has collected in your garage.

9. Fix everything on your “I’ll get around to it” list
Is the latch on the front gate broken? Does the lock on the bathroom door not work? Have old screws left holes in the wall? Patch up and repair the small issues around your home, so buyers see the property’s potential and not the list of DIY they’ll have to sign up to.

10. Home staging
Consider hiring a professional staging company to really bring your house to life. Interior design know-how goes a long way in making a home look its best. A statement couch and on-trend accessories can help your property feel more modern, increasing the emotional appeal of the property in the buyer’s mind.
