What’s the timeline?

September 12, 2019 BY



The property sale timeline is one of the most underrated key factors in ensuring you receive your premium price.

Have you considered how long you have planned to have your home on the market for? It should be one of the first questions you ask any prospective agent.

In an increasingly competitive market, the number of days your property is on the market has the largest impact on your sale result.

The theory is simple, the longer your home is on the market the more buyers will find something else, think there is something wrong with your home or just forget about it.

When your home is pushed back into the crowd, offers will be scarce or below market expectations.

At Ocean Grove Real Estate, our agents thoroughly qualify our active buyers and as trained industry experts, we use the right tools to put your property and premium price at the forefront of their mind. Our agents create a competitive environment to ensure purchasers place genuine offers firmly in the vendor’s court.

This is key to our vendors not only achieving a premium for their property but achieving it in the shortest timeframe possible.

Our statistics support our success, with our average days on market being 64 days compared to the suburb average of 105 days (sourced domain.com.au 05/09/19); 61 per cent of our properties sell within their original price range (sourced pricefinder data from 01/09/18 to 31/08/19) meaning we are not reducing sales prices to achieve quick sales for our vendors.

Ask yourself, how long do you want your home to be on the market?
