Selling Your House

Selling your house can be a challenge for many people. How can you get the most value out of your home? What do you need to do to get the best price? What charges or costs are involved to sell my home?

At ListReady, we can help out during the stressful times of selling your home with a loan of up to $35,000. You can take out this loan and make repairs and minor renovations to help sell your property fast. The funds from your ListReady loan can also be used for any marketing expenses and other costs involved in selling a house.

What is the general procedure to sell your house?

Selling your house is something most people only do once or twice in their lives. Understandably, many people are not entirely aware of the process. You may think all you need to do is find a real estate agent and let them take care of everything. But there are several things you can do to increase your property’s curb appeal and get more offers.

Prepare your home

The first step of selling your house is to prepare it for sale. These steps can include removing all clutter and most of your items. The gardens should be looking clean and tidy; this may include having the lawns mowed, garden beds weeded, and shrubs and trees trimmed back. If you have outdoor furniture and footpaths, have them cleaned by a professional team.

Decide on an agent

Choosing the right agent to represent your property is a vital decision when selling your house and can mean you get a great price, and your home is sold quickly. Always shop around for real estate agents, and then make sure you pick the one who will offer you the best service; this may not necessarily be the one who charges the lowest commission.

When choosing an agent, you can go to some of their open houses or pretend to be a buyer and see how they treat prospective purchasers. How a buyer is treated can impact the number of offers you receive. Choosing an agent you’d like to buy from is usually a good sign they’ll work well with you.

If you can’t find a suitable agent or want to limit the costs of selling a home, you can try to sell the home yourself.

Nominate your selling price

You and your agent can use existing sales and the suburb (or town) profile to decide on a suitable selling price. It is essential to set your price correctly, as you may find it difficult to sell if your home is priced outside the current market. You can complete some basic research on your area to have a reasonable idea of what price you can expect for your home.

Determine a marketing strategy

When you engage the services of an agent, they will have a marketing strategy that often covers the basics of marketing a home for sale. You may need to pay upfront for advertising costs when selling a house. A marketing strategy can include listing the home with online house sellers, making the selling of property faster than traditional advertising.

A marketing strategy for property selling can include taking professional photos, furniture staging, and international advertising. The way your property is marketed can help it stand out from your competition. In most cases, the cost and fees associated with marketing will need to be paid before the house is listed with your chosen real estate agent.

List your property for sale

After all the initial work is completed, you can list your property for sale. During this stage, everything gets exciting, and you get the chance to field offers and hopefully secure a great price. Some people choose to move out of the home at this stage (or take an extended holiday!) as it helps to keep your home in showroom condition, especially for those last-minute viewing requests.

When the home is listed, you should start receiving offers on the property (provided you’ve set a reasonable price). A good agent will only provide you with worthy offers and negotiate on your behalf to secure a great price. If you’re happy with the offer, you can accept it, and then the home is considered under contract, and the sale will settle in the agreed-upon time (usually 4–12 weeks).

How long does it take to sell your house?

Several factors contribute to how fast selling your house takes. These factors may include your location, price, and the current market (buyers or sellers). Homes and other properties in metropolitan areas will sell faster than those in regional centres, usually having a higher demand. Homes in Australia will sell in an average of 30 days.

If your home is listed for longer than 30 days and you have not had any offers, then you should talk with your real estate agent about what can be done to improve your listing. You can follow some house selling tips such as using a fresh set of photos, cleaning the property, or investing in some landscaping work that can add to the appeal of your home. 

How to increase your profits when selling your house?

Achieving the maximum price for selling your house is the goal of any sale, but you can improve your profits with the following:

  • Choose a real estate agent who takes less in commission, or sell your property yourself.
  • Make repairs and minor cosmetic improvements (gardening upgrades, cleaning, painting, etc.).
  • List your home for sale in spring and autumn, which are the best seasons for selling a home in Australia.
  • Research home sales in your area and set the right price.
  • Paying for additional marketing means you’ll receive more offers, which can mean a higher sale price is achieved.
  • Use professional photos in your listing, and use staged furniture or virtual staging to improve its appeal.

Selling a home can involve additional costs beyond the agent’s commission. At ListReady, you can apply for a loan of up to $35,000 to help cover these costs. Apply today!
