Unless your new house is the first house you own you are going to have to sell your existing house.
Lots of people in Melbourne use auctions but I have never been very keen on that approach.
We have now sold two houses using Jenman System Agents and have been very satisfied.
If you look through their websites you will see lots of reasons for using them but the three advantages that I really like are:
- They are quite clear that their duty is to you as seller of the house.
In my experience they go all out to get the best price for the house rather than tell buyers you may be willing to drop the price.
- They carefully vet all people that are taken through your house.
Much better than ‘Open for Inspections’ when criminals could ‘case’ your house anonymously by giving a false name to the agent.
- You only pay when the house is sold
I have often wonder if those advertising campaigns some agents charge you for upfront are really advertising the house for you, or the Agent to get more interest in all his offerings.
If there is a local Jenman Agent why not give them a try?
I have not been paid for this post and did not receive any discount on the sale of either house
