As stated in the recently released REINZ monthly statistics for October the number of completed sales in our region was 8% back on the same month last year and the median price is flat on the same period.


The good news is that after a very wet spring (and a drawn out election process) we are seeing a good number of new listings coming to the market and auction clearance rates improving.


What does this mean to you when looking to sell? Your home will now be in the market with more property than before so it needs to stand out and catch the eye of the buyer group. This comes down to two things.


The first is the preparation and presentation of your home so your home is not discounted from a buyer’s list based on their first look. Some key ‘old school’ pre-sale house preparation is required prior to even considering placing your home on the market.


The second is the agent you choose and how they will ‘sell’ your home to their wider sales team and how they intend to showcase your home to the market.


The best advice is to talk to one of our EVES salespeople so you understand how to make you home stand out in the market and attract the very best buyers.   


EVES, more people selling more property.
