When selling, the objectives are clear: you want your property sold for the best possible price, in the desired timeframe and with an agency that takes the stress out of the real estate experience.
Our experienced staff, systems, marketing and service standards all combine to reach these objectives. We have a co-ordinated approach to ensure that each office in our ten office network actively promotes your property, drawing on our extensive database of buyers looking to purchase in Melbourne’s north-west.
As a market leader in Melbourne property sales, Brad Teal Real Estate offers vibrant and tailored marketing plans to best suit your property. Broad reach through the use of four leading internet sites and effective local exposure through local print media along with vibrant signage and brochures, ensure all bases are covered.
From the first appraisal to the final handshake, we give you honest, practical advice, all designed to achieve a great result. We take time to develop a strategy that is not only effective, but sits comfortably with you and your personal preferences for your marketing campaign and type of sale – auction or private sale.
MARKETING STRATEGIES AVAILABLE
The Auction system is a popular strategy that works particularly well with properties in highly desirable areas, where competition between buyers is expected to be high.
This very public style of sale has many benefits which include competitive bidding and certainty of a set date for the sale (assuming the reserve is reached). Even if not sold at auction, further negotiation with unsuccessful bidders often results in a sale shortly after the auction. In addition, there is always the option of accepting an offer prior to the auction date.
A four week advertising program tailored specifically for your property will ensure the market is aware of your forthcoming auction.
Private sales are divided into two strategies. Firstly, advertising and Open For Inspections are arranged (as with an auction campaign), but with a set asking price.
Alternatively, a low key private sale campaign can be arranged, whereby we contact buyers in our large buyer database and arrange for more discreet inspections to take place. Each vendor and each house is different, requiring campaigns to be designed with careful thought and a tailored strategy.
Obtaining the best price
Our pledge is to get you that price. Through a proven market strategy, based on extensive local knowledge, current property trends, comparable sales data, the combined efforts of seven offices and a genuine care and concern for our clients, we are confident that the best possible price is achieved.
Preparing your home
“You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression”.
There are many small, inexpensive ways of making your home more appealing to a potential purchaser. Addressing cosmetic improvements, maintenance and minor repairs to your home is worth the effort and often has a positive impact on the eventual sale price. The Brad Teal team believes it is essential for your home to be presented in the best possible light and has created a Presenting Your Home For Sale booklet available from our offices, free of charge.
At Brad Teal we believe in providing the highest level of service to our vendors at a realistic rate of commission, which is determined on a property by property basis and is fully negotiable. Commission can be a flat dollar amount, a percentage of the sale price, or performance based with a variable percentage rate. In the unlikely event of a property failing to sell, no commission is payable.
When we receive instructions from a vendor to commence an advertising campaign, we book and pay for all advertising on the vendors behalf. This amount is then recovered from the vendor when the property is sold or withdrawn from sale.
There are no up-front charges for selling property with Brad Teal.
