It might be difficult to let go of your home but once you decide to put it in the market, you need to commit to the process.⠀ ⠀ And that means letting your agent do their job and staying out of the way.⠀ ⠀ Let your agent do the talking and give the potential buyers space to look around and get hooked to your home. ⠀ ⠀ When you linger and follow the buyers around while they look into your home, you’re just pushing them away. ⠀ ⠀ Remember that selling a property—even if it’s your property—is a business transaction. ⠀ ⠀ Stay objective and let the buyers imagine what their life could be in your property without you interfering.

Have you ever thought about relocating? ⠀ ⠀⠀ Depending on your situation, it might be a dream come true or it might get you stressed.⠀ ⠀⠀ There are some things to consider before you drop everything and relocate though.⠀ ⠀⠀ Think about the pros and cons. The first thing you should do with any big decision is to ask yourself the right questions. Is the location near where you work? Have you saved enough for it?⠀ ⠀⠀ Know your new home. How familiar are you with the location you’re moving to? No matter how close to home it may be, moving brings about different considerations.⠀ ⠀⠀ Consider your family. Think about whether the new location you plan to move to has nearby schools for the kids or if you’re single how far away will you be from your parents, siblings and extended family?⠀ ⠀⠀ Relocating isn’t a simple decision that you should be making on a whim.⠀ ⠀⠀ Consider everything first and then you can decide whether moving is good for you and everyone involved.⠀ ⠀⠀ 📸 @californiacottonhome
If your clients sit around and wonder how the home-buying process is going, their anxieties will probably get the best of them. ⠀ ⠀⠀ So as agents, it’s important that we loop them into the entire process, not just the home-search portion. ⠀ ⠀⠀ Think about it. They might feel more settled about the property they buy if they attend the inspection and know that the home has good bones.⠀ ⠀⠀ Add a home inspection contingency clause to the contract as well for further peace of mind. ⠀ ⠀⠀ The more activities your buyers take part in, the less intangible home-buying will seem. Keep them in the loop and give them the option to attend meetings and events. ⠀ ⠀⠀ They’ll feel better for it, and so will you!

The number of days on the market is the first sign that it’s time to go the auction route.⠀ ⠀⠀ Auctions create urgency around a sale, as well as get the word out to a new pool of potential buyers. ⠀ ⠀⠀ This is especially true for high-end and unique homes, which have such a small pool of potential buyers in the first place.⠀ ⠀⠀ To find out more about how you can decide if it’s time to auction your home, watch this -> http://bit.ly/decide-to-auction⠀ ⠀⠀ 📸 @WatercolourWorkshop

Get out the cleaning supplies, boxes, and get ready to sell your home fast! ⠀ ⠀⠀ You'll love how easy it is to transform a slow-moving home into a quick sale with just a bit of elbow grease and an eye for beauty.⠀ ⠀⠀ If you’re lucky and just need to do some simple home repairs, get rid of clutter and add fresh flowers. A simple repaint or change the carpet can give it a fresh look. ⠀ ⠀⠀ If you're handy, you'll be able to do most things yourself. But you may need to hire a plumber to install a new faucet in the kitchen or other professional to replace outdated light fixtures or windows.⠀ ⠀⠀ Keep in mind that you're not going to make the changes to live in your home. ⠀ ⠀⠀ Your only goal is to show your home at its very best to potential buyers. Without being distracted by clutter and dirt, they'll be able to picture themselves in the home you're trying to sell. ⠀ ⠀⠀ They will find it hard to resist making an offer!⠀ ⠀⠀ 📸 @the_citizenr

"We have been engaging agents over many years for advice and to complete various property transactions, but Ben Wakely and his team operate at another level.⠀ ⠀⠀ A real agent you can trust and take advice from, with dedication and commitment to clients that is second to none. We were fully informed by the team at all times during the sales process and from the beginning were confident in a great outcome. ⠀ ⠀⠀ A big advantage of using his services is the large network he has established over the years which enables him to source buyers/sellers outside of traditional marketing methods. ⠀ ⠀⠀ We have no hesitation in referring clients to Ben in the future and look forward to a long term and mutually beneficial relationship."⠀ ⠀⠀ Jason and Michaela | 10 Okeden St Toowong QLD 4066
Investing in property is a good way to generate more income. ⠀ ⠀⠀ This will only happen if you do it right though. So here are 6 mistakes you should avoid:⠀ ⠀⠀ ❌Not doing research. Doing proper and solid research will help you become more informed about property investment and make informed decisions.⠀ ⠀⠀ ❌Investing in the wrong place. Even when you’re in the right suburb, you might still cop a property in a not so ideal spot and this where the importance of research comes in.⠀ ⠀⠀ ❌Letting your emotions decide. Buying an investment property with your emotions winning over logic is a BIG no. Factors such as location, market conditions are a recipe for low investment returns.⠀ ⠀⠀ ❌Doing it by yourself. Managing your portfolio by yourself involves a lot of work—looking for tenants, rent collection, etc. While it can save you money, this can also take up so much time.⠀ ⠀⠀ ❌Becoming overconfident. After acquiring properties, you may become overconfident that you start making poor decisions and buy without looking at your finances. A wise investor should weigh their options before making any move.⠀ ⠀⠀ Property investments can be a daunting venture, but if you equip yourself with knowledge you’re bound to succeed. So go forth, invest! ⠀ ⠀⠀ If you need more help, you can always drop a message.⠀ ⠀⠀ 📸 @serenaandlily

"We chose Ben Wakely and Urban due to the success and reputation they have in Paddington and the vast knowledge they have of the area and the simple fact, Ben is an honest person to deal with.⠀ ⠀⠀ At all times we had a true understanding of how the sale was progressing and what was very important to myself was the fact Ben didn't try and fill us with false hope just to keep us happy. ⠀ ⠀⠀ This made us very confident that when Ben came to us with a potential sale, we felt it would get done and in fact it did. ⠀ ⠀⠀ The entire experience was fairly stress free, apart from the usual open house stress and we would like to thank Ben and his entire team for making it an easy process."⠀ ⠀⠀ Jeff and Kat | 33 Elizabeth St Paddington QLD 4064
