Deciding to sell your home is an exciting moment that can be quickly eclipsed by the daunting task of ensuring you get the best market price for your home. How do you ensure your selling price expectation is met and that the selling experience is a smooth one? 

My Agents Profile recently hosted its first Seller's Seminar at Hurstville Civic Theatre, with over 70 local sellers in attendance. Selling gurus Michael Curtis of Ray White Hurstville and Walter Glaser of Argy Property were guest speakers for the event.

The savvy duo answered questions about the tricks agents use to sell a property for more, the steps of a selling process and how renovations can maximise the value of a property. 

The first thing you start thinking about after deciding to sell your home is finding a reliable real estate agent. You don’t want to leave your most precious asset in the hands of someone who has high fees and little experience.

It can be good to remove excess clutter to create the illusion of space - and turn your room into a canvas your buyer can project onto

Browse hundreds of real estate agents on My Agents Profile, a comprehensive database that shows the fees, experience and details of a variety of agents in your chosen suburb or city. 

After you’ve chosen your agent, consider making some minor improvements to your home. Even if your home is being gratuitously labelled a ‘fixer-upper’, there are small repairs that can really make all the difference in an open house. Easy fixes include filling cracks in the ceiling, touching up paint chips and replacing door handles. 

Before organising professional photographs or organising house inspections, consider re-arranging your furniture temporarily.

The goal is to make all the rooms appear spacious, so consider moving lounges, the dining table and lamps to the outer edges of the room. Consider storing excess pieces that fill the space, like coffee tables or heavy artworks on the wall, and ensure mirrors work to your advantage. 

First impressions count - so make sure yours is a clean one

Then it’s time to give the place a spring clean. Timber flooring should be mopped and steamed, carpet stains lifted, walls washed and furniture completely dusted. The first impressions count when it comes to prospective buyers – in fact, a first impression can mean all the difference when negotiating price. 

With the success of the event, My Agents Profile is looking to host further seminars in the future.

“We don't want to be just an online platform,” founder Jeremy Chen says.

“We want to be of real help to our property sellers and agents. It was a special moment for us - everything went well and we felt very satisfied that many of our attendees found the event very valuable and educational.”
