You will always know your home better than we ever will.
Walk and talk us through your home. Tell us of any improvements that you have made, small or large they can make a significant difference.
Why did you buy?
If you built, why did you design your home the way that you did?
Sometimes, a list or a couple of paragraphs of the things you love about your home and the area that you live within will be treated like gold dust. Not only in helping us with our script writing but on occasion to simply cut and paste and handout to your potential buyers.
The selling and purchasing of a new home is an emotional time, showing the love that a home has been treated with can be magical and financially rewarding. We remind you again that we are most likely to sell your home to “you” (akin) again.
A set of keys to your home, as well as an alarm code if you have one. This will allow us to easily make appointments and show potential purchasers through your home. As well as lock up securely once the appointment is over.
Solar power information including the number of solar panels, the kilowatt size of the system and your NMI number which can be found on your electricity account/invoice.
A list of what you might consider to be routine maintenance that you have undertaken, like roof repairs. termite inspections, a replacement hot water service or recently replaced appliances.
Rainwater tank yes/no, capacity, is it plumbed to your home or for the garden only, pump yes/no. Irrigation yes/no. front, rear or both.
Just like we need to know all the good things about your home, we must also know any negatives. If there is anything broken or not working as it should, we need to know. If we are aware we can often deal with the situation or issue early on and make your buyers aware not only that we have priced accordingly but we are also honest. To achieve the best price for your home we need to work as a team, we want to work hand in hand with you throughout the whole process.
