The reality is there are many “astute” property opportunists active in the greater marketplace hunting for that next bargain. A homeowner who fails to engage in an effective marketing campaign to flush out multiple purchasers can become vulnerable prey for this calibre of purchaser. Such purchasers are governed by their own perception of value, plus their motivation to maximise profits. It goes without saying that they have very little regard for a sellers’ interests.
With 306 ‘as is, where is’ sales under our belt now it would be fair to say we understand this market. Accomplishing results like the above is the most satisfying aspect of the process. Seeing people moving forward with their lives and in most instances realising a greater selling price than expected makes it a very positive experience.
With spring on the horizon, we look forward to creating many more magic results for our clients prior to the end of the year. If your intention is to get sold before the year’s end, we suggest you contact us sooner rather than later. ‘As is’ buyers are hesitant to hold properties over the Christmas/New Year period due to labour shortages, so it’s best to get the ball rolling now.
