There is no one system that is best for all people and for all types of property.
The one common element amongst all our vendors is that they want to achieve the best price.Some have very specific time requirements to sell; others don't mind how long it takes. Some want little publicity; others believe their property should have maximum exposure via advertising and marketing.
The types of market also differ. Some areas are chronically short of properties listed for sale - effective marketing brings out a range of interested buyers who must compete to buy the property they're interested in. Other areas are different. Often they have plenty of properties for sale, but relatively fewer buyers.
The type of home also influences the best method of sale. Some homes have appeal to potential buyers who may not even be actively looking to buy. Some will draw buyers from all parts of the country, or even from overseas. Other homes are more likely to be attractive to local buyers.
There are many different circumstances and influences. Our role is to present the choices to you, advise which method best suits your property and current market conditions and then you decide on the way you want to sell your property. Once the decision is made we get to work.
This is when you select one agency to be responsible to you. You will expect the agent to act in your best interests and to do everything possible to secure the best price for the property. The agent will suggest a number of ways of maximising interest in your property. Your home goes onto the market with a predetermined asking price agreed between you and your agent, based on market analysis. Potential buyers will either accept the price, or more likely, start by making an offer. It is in your best interests to have your agent handle the negotiations. This method of sale is effective in the long term, and targets buyers who just want to view homes in their price range.
This is presenting a property to the market without a vendor's price. Auctions are highly focussed marketing campaigns designed to expose your property to the maximum number of buyers, maximise your sale price, and minimise the number of days your home is on the market. Your home is put up for sale on a specified date and that is preceded by an intensive marketing campaign and selected 'open home' days. The contract of sale is on your terms and the conditions of the sale are predetermined. This method of sale puts a clear time frame on your campaign and creates a competitive atmosphere on auction day, aimed at achieving the highest possible price for your home.

How To Find A Good Investment Property
The idea of owning rental real estate seems to be gaining popularity as investors tire of the swoops and swoons of the stock market. Not everyone has what it takes to be a landlord. But those who do may find rentals to be a good way to build wealth.
Once you've made the decision to buy rental property, your real work begins. Finding a profitable rental property usually takes time, connections and plenty of research.
Here's what you need to know to get started:
Know your time horizon
As with any other investment, you should have a good idea how long you plan to own a rental property before you buy it.
The longer you plan to own the property, the more you'll probably need to invest in maintenance, repairs and improvements.
Get your finances in shape
The better your credit, and the less credit card and other consumer debt you have, the better your prospects for getting a decent loan.
Landlords say it also pays to have a substantial cash reserve left over after buying a property.
This can help pay for unexpected repairs and vacancies. Although there are few rules of thumb, setting aside at least one month's rent for each unit is a good start.
You also should make sure you can save enough for retirement and other goals before investing in rental real estate. While rental income can supplement your retirement kitty, most people shouldn't count on it to replace other investments or allow themselves to be entirely exposed to the whims of the local real estate market. Rents and property values can fall as well as rise, and those who are adequately diversified with investments in stocks, bonds and cash will be better able to endure the bad times as well as the good.
The rental real estate market is generally tougher on investors who overpay than on homeowners who do the same thing, several landlords said. While a home is often an emotional purchase, which can lead to "I must have it!" offers and bidding wars, most landlords look strictly at the numbers to see if their investments will pay off.
