Setting the Price
The selling price for your property is determined by the buyers, not by you or us. You can set an asking price, but in the end, the selling price is what a buyer is willing and able to pay.
In every selling situation, the major decision is price. No amount of great marketing will sell your property if it is placed on the market at too high a price. It is therefore vital that a sound, realistic appraisal is done by an experienced agent.
Kate Galetto will use her expert knowledge to research comparable sales and present you with all the data you need to decide the price that will get your property sold.
Houses sell quickly and for the most money when they are priced correctly at the beginning. Be very wary of listing too far above the appraisal "to leave some room to move" or to "leave room to come down later". We recommend that you stick close to the appraisal figure which is based on recent sales in your area.
Be particularly careful of the poorly researched agents that flatter you with a higher and unrealistic price to "buy your listing". And beware of well intentioned but inexpert friends and family who think you " should be able to get more". They could end up costing you a lot of time and money whilst your property lingers on the market. A property that is on the market too long because of an uncompetitive price also sends out signals that "something is wrong."
We at Galetto Real Estate have a keen interest in getting the best possible price for your property. We will deliver sound, up-to-the-minute market knowledge which will help your property to sell.
Sensible and Sound Marketing
The purpose of marketing is to generate an enquiry and ultimately an inspection. Marketing needs to present your property in an enticing way to stimulate a buyer's interest enough to either phone us as your agent, or to attend an open for inspection.
A well-planned campaign with well-directed photography and possibly a walk-through video tour can add hundreds of dollars to your final selling price. We pride ourselves on our marketing experience and spend hours making sure that the photography captures the essence of your home.
With the ever increasing use of the internet by prospective purchasers, your photos carry immense importance - if your photos are not engaging, you will not attract buyers to your open homes, and therefore lack of competition equals a poor selling result.
Team Galetto take a professional approach to marketing - in fact we embrace it. We understand the importance of sensibly priced but demographically geared marketing as essential to achieve the best price for you our vendor.
We design a marketing programme that suits your individual needs and the type of home that you ask us to sell - it is a tailor-made individual programme based on your home and your circumstances - but a programme that we know through our experience, will produce the best results.
Rental Property For Sale
Marketing a property for sale with an incumbent tenant is a delicate process that requires sensitive handling. We at Team Galetto are sensitive to the issues involved including tenant's rights and concerns, and above all the importance of a tenant to the landlord/vendor.
We work closely with the tenants and do our very best to encourage the tenant to do the best they can to present the property properly - after all, we may well sell to an investor , who would love this tenant to continue renting the property.
