Spring Property Market

Spring is traditionally a busy time in the property market. Approximately 1 out of every 3 vendors believes Spring is the best time of the year to sell a property. Purchasers who have held back in the colder months are coming out to see potential properties to purchase and vendors are looking to sell so they can relocate in time for Christmas.

John Pye Real Estate is experiencing strong demand from first-home buyers looking to enter the property market and act before the stamp duty concessions are limited as of the 1st of January 2012. You can read more about this here.

One of the best steps that these prospective buyers can take to prepare for a purchase will be to obtain mortgage preapproval well in advance so that good opportunities can be acted upon quickly.

For people wanting to sell, visual presentation of their home is what counts. With spring typically seeing numerous properties listed, you want yours to stand out from the rest and give it the best opportunity to gain an outstanding result.

There are numerous ways to give your property a boost:

  • A fresh coat of paint
  • Tidy the outside of your home and add some colour with potted flowers and other plants
  • Spring clean the inside of your home
  • Have the carpets cleaned or floor boards buffed
  • Make any major repairs
  • Make energy-efficient home improvements
  • If you have old lighting fixtures, replace them with newer and more modern fixtures
  • Freshen up the bathrooms. A cost effective way of doing this is re-grouting dirty or missing grout with pre-mixed grout purchased from Bunnings
  • Give your kitchen a fresh look with a new stove. Another cost efective way of sprussing up your kitchen is replacing the cupboard door handles
