Two Identical Apartments Sold Within Weeks of Each Other. How Did Angelo Zardo Achieve $30,000 More?
(Actually, the other apartment had two car spaces, while Angelo’s had one.)
Referred by the onsite manager, who was aware of Angelo’s great track record in New Farm, the owner needed to clear enough money for renos on their family home.
Setting up the sale for success, the H & H marketing team created the story of the property to capture as many buyers as possible via video, images, a floor plan and writing.
In a nutshell, thousands of online views, 60 leads and 31 buyers through opens, 4 written offers, and Angelo’s genuine way of negotiating, lead to his conclusion: ‘Marketing and the video drew in the crowd. That increased competition enabling me to use all my negotiation skills, and we were able to achieve a much higher result for my vendor.’
After 30 Years Of Happy Memories, These Vendors Were Ready To Sell
The family home that was the backdrop to everything from birthday to engagement parties was no longer needed as the owners had moved north.
It hadn’t been kept up to scratch as the owners were only using it sporadically over the last 20 years, so there was a lot to do before marketing commenced – pool, smoke alarms, overgrown trees, fallen fences and fresh curtains were installed.
Enter Allie Coutts with a strategy to get as much competition as possible so the home would sell at the highest price possible.
When the images came back, they were enhanced by virtual furniture (makes such a difference to online presentation).
The property was launched in late November, with huge numbers of open home attendees, seven offers and an unconditional contract in 3 weeks.
Allie puts the tremendous result down to everyone pitching in to get the job done (which found her cleaning and gardening and so forth). The home looked way better online with the virtual furnishings rather than empty and lifeless, and the owners were satisfied that they’d achieved the maximum price with so many offers coming in.
We Wanted Out of Our Rental Property
‘When we decided to put our rental property on the market to sell, we relied on our onsite managers to give us the best recommendation.’
Enter Deb Maguire from Hutton & Hutton, who enabled her clients to achieve an outstanding result in the shortest time frame for the best possible outcome.
Twenty-eight groups through over a 5-week period resulted in 4 written offers and one extremely happy seller, as well as a jubilant buyer.
The overjoyed purchaser is a first home buyer who had an offer on a 1 bed, 1 bath, 0 car apartment a block away, and took Deb’s advice and purchased her listing with the car space, cleverly renting the car space separately for $85 per week to help pay down the mortgage!
