Selling a property can be stressful and all just too hard!
The first step is that you will need to prepare your home prior to been advertised. This could include doing major or minor improvements, painting, decluttering, removing personal items, selling or putting furniture into storage, cleaning, gardening and many more jobs. This in itself is the biggest and hardest part of the process. Next comes the marketing stage where you prepare for the website, print media, signboards, brochures and other forms of advertising. After this is finalised, then the property goes live and open for inspections commence and agents and people come through your home. You feel like the whole world can now see inside your home. You must keep the property on show during this time and you are forever cleaning and tidying up.
There is a lot involved in this process and certainly the effort can be well worth it, as the property is displayed in its best possible light and the marketing exposes the property to lots more buyers, including new buyers entering the market and buyers that are inactive waiting for the right property. Also some real estate agents will just push for marketing as they see it as better profile for themselves.
For some owners this whole process is just not for them and they may want only qualified buyers inspecting rather than anyone. Also the property may have been on the market previously, so they don’t want to go through this process again. So an OFF MARKET sale is where the property is not publically advertised and the real estate agent utilises their contacts and buyers on their database. You can also use an off market period as part of a strategy or to get buyer feedback on property/price.
Like selling any property, pricing the property close to market is essential, if you price the property too high then you are unlikely to have any offers.
Some buyers also like to see properties off market as they may have missed out on another property recently or are very specific in their requirements.
We recently sold a 226m2 grand and amazing art deco apartment in Bellevue Hill with water views for over $3m.
