DO I RENOVATE BEFORE I SELL?

by Vivian’s Residential In Uncategorized

07 October 2015

Time & time again we get asked the same question about renovating the property before you sell.

Yes you should paint, yes you should get new carpet, yes you should tidy the gardens, yes you should de clutter, yes you should do maintenance jobs, yes you should be making the home as light and bright as you possibly can.

Gone have the days where you can just do a small tidy up you have to present your home almost like a vogue magazine these days (ha ha) well depending on the property that is.

Bad presentation of a property is for sure the fastest way of selling for less dollars, buyers are definitely swayed by presentation and the less they have to do – it’s the investor that wont pay for anything normally.

We have to get buyers to fall in love with your home (investors look at different angles) and they must have it.  So if it’s not presented well it can be a much slower process.

The market is hard enough as it is without you putting obstacles in the way.

Grand Final

by Vivian’s Residential In Uncategorized

Well my little eagle bird has flown the nest and gone on his journey to Melbourne (so jealous but someone has to stay back and hold the fort) !!  Passionate about the Eagles, all dressed up in the head gear with the dreadies, flag and guernsey.  (go to our face book page for his photo hilarious) www.viviansresidential.com

With being so lucky getting a ticket in the ballot and a Dockers fan’s flight away he flew.

Good luck to the Eagles I hope you win, if we can keep our nerves in check for the first quarter I think we will have a real crack at it, if Hawthorn over rides us in the first quarter we would be hard pressed to keep them in check.

We have not played a lot on the MCG and I believe it’s a lot wider (so guess what they will be doing running us raggard).

Anyway the boy’s have done exceptionally well to get to the grand final and I certainly hope they bring home the cup.

17 buses took off full of Eagles fans so we can expect a huge crowd at the MCG which holds approximately 100,000 people.

Having had the luck of attending one grand final with the Dockers it’s an absolute awesome stadium all good seating.  With all of my clients that I spoke today either driving in a camper van, bussing it or flying over – good luck to you all I am filled with envy !!

Have fun and enjoy all the festivities of Melbourne they put on a really good show, food is cheap and the drinks are too.

FOMO

by Vivian’s Residential In Uncategorized

FOMO ?  What does that mean???

Fear of missing out !!  A lot of my friends are like that accepting invitations although they have other invites that they have already accepted before hand but squeeze your one in as they are definitely a FOMO.

I have to laugh even seeing the T-Shirts around as people have it printed on as they are all about being a FOMO.

I would strongly suggest you start becoming one of those regarding buying property in the Western Suburbs as September saw us with a big month of 7 sales – 5 of them in Mosman Park !!

Two of those properties were fought for and multiple offers are causing the first home buyer (naturally as they are not experienced) a lot of distress as they really don’t understand the whole process.

My heart bleeds for them as they try desperately to get into the property market, with the banks playing hard ball and bigger deposits required they have to really think about their offer.  I cannot really say that it’s at the bottom but if it’s not it’s pretty damn close as there are sold signs going up everywhere.  This means people are now seeing the value in properties and have decided to take the plunge – I applaud you as you are buying in a great market, if you are upgrading buying and selling in the same market – how perfect.

Again I will reiterate if you are in competition with another person think about what you want to offer and add that extra $500 for $550.00 on the end of it you just never know how close you are going to be.  The Seller I can tell you will almost always take the higher price.

NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO BE PROCRASTINATING !! – trust me !!
