Selling your home tips: Have you ever considered when is the best time to sell your home? It’s probably not when you think.
Working as professional property stylists, we see behind the scenes of the real estate industry. We also love to provide selling your homes tips. For some people, selling their home is due to circumstance. For others, the allure of spring and summer gets them holding off selling through the winter months. Just because the flowers aren’t blooming and the weather is cooling, doesn’t mean it’s a bad time to sell your property.
What do our leading sales agents say?
Trever Molenaar from molenaar + mcneice explains: “The stats generally say there is no perfect time of year to sell. Outside factors like interest rate rises or drops and world events play a bigger part than the minor peaks and troughs each month goes through. Traditionally in the warmer months in spring and summer properties generally look better as gardens are greener and more light throughout the day. Buyers can peak in some areas especially tourist towns however the competition rises steeply. Most home owners have exactly the same thought pattern and in some areas listing numbers can double of triple. “
Year after year we see the same house sale patterns emerge from real estate sale and property styling data: Contrary to popular belief, buyers don’t stop browsing the sales listing when it gets cold. They just don’t! They still have money to spend. Chances are they are laser focused in buying their next property regardless of the season.
Figures from 2016 and 2017 by CoreLogic RP Data back up the seasonal nature of the property market. Across all eight capital cities, there were more listings recorded in the spring months of September, October and November than the other three seasons.
Here are some things to consider when selling a property during the winter months:
Whether the sun is shining or hiding, or whether the real estate market is booming or idle, having your property professionally styled will maximise your sale price. When we capture the hearts and minds of buyers, we influence their buying decisions.
Our goal is to help you achieve a massive sale return, by creating beautifully styled spaces. If you are looking for selling your home tips, and are serious about maximising your sale price.. get in touch
Cool Whites versus Warm Whites – A Warning
Choosing paint can be a difficult task – what you see at the paint store on a small chip can be vastly different to how paint looks when it’s covering a vast space in a home. Your final choice in paint can make or break the ambience of your home.
After 14 years in the interior styling industry, I have come up with a personal set of interior decor rules. They aren’t officially industry ‘rules’ – they’re my personal rules, which have come about through many hours of pouring over interior magazines and books, analysing exactly why I love a space and why it talks to me.
One of the most arresting issues that Angie and I discover when attending an interior or property styling consultation is, the clinical ambiance derived from the existing shade of cool white paint on interior walls.
I would say that 9 times out of 10, DIY home decorators have chosen a cool white or extremely pale grey. Don’t get me wrong about greys – I love them. The deeper the better! My issue with cool Whites or ultra pale greys, is that they feel cold. I often describe them as ‘fridge whites’ or ‘dental surgery whites’, because they cast a cold and clinical ambiance, not dissimilar to an overcast day.
To my horror, a close friend of mine, recently chose a cold white (Lexicon), under direction of the paint shop employee. His advice was that it was all the rage. It’s a little bit like asking the butcher, how to cook a good beef bourguignon, or the carpenter, which architectural style is best, or…
Overcast days, just don’t seem to feel as lovely or as happy, as sunny days, where warm golden light bathes everything it touches in happy tones. Our homes are no different, where warm* whites evoke feelings of comfort and welcoming and sunshine, cool whites don’t. The difference between the two can not be understated. Ambiance is everything in a home.
*The warmth in a warm white paint is barely detectable to the untrained eye.
If you need colour consultation for a new build or for a renovation, give Angie a call on 0423 803 380 for your free consultation. We can also recommend local trusty painters and other tradesmen who come with our tried and tested personal seal of approval.
