Selling Tips: The Best House in the Street

We’ve all heard about what a smart move it is to buy the worst house in the best street, but what if your house is already the best? Andrew Winter explains all!

The best house in the street is likely to  have a high price tag to go with it. Buyers are always looking around for a bargain and there might be something down the road for a lot less which they can add their own stamp to.

1) Make sure your price is actually feasible for the area. You don’t want to price yourself out of the market. And remember that a house priced way above the median for the suburb will probably take longer to sell.

2) Your house will really need to have the “wow” factor. Potential buyers will need to walk around and believe they can move in without lifting a finger.

3) Your target market will most likely not be the diy renovator. So those little jobs that many new home owners are happy to take care of themselves should not be left undone!

4) It's also worth attending local open houses to check out the competition to be make sure your property is a notch above the rest. From the moment a buyer walks through the front gate, they need to think, “this is the one”.
