PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE

Your home is a very valuable asset and deserves excellent presentation come sale time. Proper presentation is key to an outstanding result at sale time. Below are some tips and tricks for you that will make a difference.

INSIDE PRESENTATION

* Ensure your house is clean and tidy

* Consider hiring furniture or employing the talents of a Home Stager. Another opinion is always welcome.

* Make sure all doors work well.. handles turn and lock smoothly, and doors do not jam.

* Open curtains to allow as much light as possible.

* Check all lights, replace any blown globes.

* Remove clutter.

* Rub lavender oil into door-jambs for a soothing aroma.

OUTSIDE PRESENTATION

* Replace all cracked or broken glass.

* Make sure all gates work well.. handles turn and lock smoothly, and gates do not jam.

* Remove leaf litter/ sticks from gutters.

* Replace broken fences or missing palings

* Mow the lawns and tidy gardens.

INSPECTIONS / OPEN HOME

* Try to be out when buyers inspect. Buyers will feel more comfortable and will be able to better visualise living there.

* Make sure the house is a comfortable temperature and all the lights are on and curtains open.

* Turn light music on and brew some coffee before each inspection (freshly ground is best) as the aroma creates pleasant associations for buyers.

* Ensure your agent knows what makes your house a home. Explain why it is special for you, point out its highlights. This will help when preparing advertising materials and showing the home to potential buyers at inspections.

If you would like clarification regarding any of the above, I am more than happy to provide any advice, information or tradesmen referrals you may need.

Reviews

Trust in a Professional I am pleased to recommend Kay and Suz for their outstanding performance in managing the successful sale of my Unit. From our first meeting I was confident that this sale process was being handled by Professionals. All my expectations were met and exceeded, especially in the presentation of the Unit to the prospective Buyers and the final negotiation to seal the deal. The Marketing Plan went to schedule; the Staging Process made such a difference to the presentation and my timelines for the sale process were achieved. You can certainly "trust in a professional approach" with Kay and Suz - well done Ladies.

Justin S - 2/30 Noela Street, Coorparoo

I have bought and sold numerous properties over the last 25 plus years and dealt with numerous real estate agents and can honestly say that Kay Smith is the best. In an industry that often attracts unscrupulous characters Kay has an extremely high standard of integrity and works extremely hard to get the best possible outcome for her clients. Her knowledge of the real estate industry and in particular the areas around Coorparoo is second to none. Her positive attitude and negotiation skills are outstanding and she will always give you honest and accurate feedback and advice. I would encourage anyone thinking of buying or selling a property to contact Kay Smith.

Karen & Steven H - COORPAROO

"From the moment we met Kay we felt comfortable with her. After initially meeting her to advise us on our property through to the completion of sale of our new house Kay was amazing."

Clare & Gerard O - 52 Beresford Terrace, Coorparoo

"Many thanks to Kay for handling the sale of my property. I was very pleased with the result - shocked actually. Kay sold the house to me many years ago and she was the first person I thought of when I decided to sell it. Her knowledge and experience is immense but more importantly I valued her honesty, integrity and opinion."

Ann L - COORPAROO

I have bought and sold properties with Kay. She is very experienced and brings a degree of honesty and integrity to the relationship.

Ann & Robyn

We chose Kay to sell our family home in Coorparoo as she had a wealth of knowledge in the area and have been very happy with the end result. We found her to be very professional and upfront and felt she couldn't have done more.

Barbara G - 18 Welwyn Crescent, Coorparoo

Kay demonstrated intimate knowledge of the Coorparoo market having operated there for a long time. Consequently her opinions and views carried a lot of weight. She exudes a balanced and considered view of how your property will be viewed in the market and it is reassuring to know that her assessment is not exaggerated. Hence you expectations are reality based from the start! It is also reassuring to know that while your emotions are bound to get in the way when you are buying/selling property, Kay will always be there to give you the practical assessment of the situation, even when it isn't what you might want to hear. A thorough professional in whom we had no hesitation placing our trust.

Susan & Kenneth O - 39 Orion Street, Coorparoo

We have known Kay and used her services over a period of many years. We believe she has the best knowledge of the local area of any real estate agent in Coorparoo and surrounding suburbs. She works very hard to obtain the best result for her clients and we highly recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling in Coorparoo.

Rhonda & Andrew C - 131 Sirius Street, Coorparoo

Kay is a legend in the Coorparoo and surrounding area. I highly recommend Kay as a rock solid performer. She is ably assisted by Suz in the office and goes beyond the norm. Maximum stars all-round!

Rhonda & Andrew C - 131 Sirius Street, Coorparoo

I found Kay Smith to be very proactive in helping with the Sale of our unit in Coorparoo. Kay was very focussed on achieving a sale but also listened carefully to any concerns that we may have had and offered appropriate advice. I was also impressed that Kay (and members of her team) addressed a number of issues in relation to the "final" cleaning of the unit the day before settlement and had follow up calls with the purchaser to ensure the settlement proceeded smoothly.

Tony H - 3/45 Amelia Street, Coorparoo

Engaging Kay Smith is really engaging a team of hard working people who know their stuff. Professional and communicative, the sales process for us went exceptionally well. We hit some hurdles with a few buyers falling through inexplicably but it was no fault of Kay nor her team. What really counted in this case was their experience in getting back up and running, not letting it become a sales problem and pressing on to a very agreeable final sale in the end. Some agents would have faltered, Kay didn't and that's what was important to us. We've dealt with other agents and were been left with the impression they just didn't know what they were doing. At all times through the sale we were in the loop of what was going on and knew our house was being handled by a sales professional. I recommend Kay Smith and her team highly.

Lyndsey N & Peter A - 15 Galway Street, Greenslopes

We found Kay very friendly to deal with. Kay has a very broad knowledge of the local area and it shows how passionate she is in helping people find the right home that suits their needs. We appreciated the advice Kay gave us along the way. My husband and I found Kay to always be professional and courteous. We are very pleased with our new home purchase and looking forward to moving in.

Natasha & Adrian - 38 Hethorn Street, Coorparoo

Professional and highly knowledgeable

Katherine

Kay did a superb job during the whole process, now for the settlement. Over to the Lawyers.

Sandra & Phillip

Kay has sold a couple of properties for me and I would highly recommend her. In today's market when most agents are out there posting there face all over the place and telling you how good they are, Kay just simply gets out and does the deal. After talking to other agents who required these big marketing budgets Kay came in and with the very basic marketing got about selling both of my houses within a month, she rang after each and every open house and gave us a update. Yes I would highly recommend Kay Smith.

Madonna & Ian Webber - 42 Abbott & 13 Vega Sts

Ultimate Professional We’d purchased a new home and needed to sell our current home with a view to effecting a contemporaneous settlement of the new and old properties; all of this with a 2 yr old and an 11 day old. Enter Kay and her team who didn’t put a foot wrong, and got us across the line with time to spare. We couldn’t have asked for more from an agent, and wouldn’t hesitate in recommend her services to anyone selling in or around Coorparoo.

Kirsten & Andrew McMaugh - 53 Mansfield Street

Knowledgeable, professional and experienced I have used Kay to purchase a property, then when the time came to sell the same house, I was so impressed during her service and experience during the purchase, I did not hesitate in engaging her for the Sale. Her experience shone through, and communication was excellent, I was being informed throughout all the stages of the purchase and sale process. In the end, the results speak for themselves, my house was sold by Kay within 2 weeks, while other houses in the area have been listed by other agents for a much longer period of time. Thank you Kay and the Team!!!

Adam Miszkinis - 62 Cedar Street

Rebecca & Daryl Fidge - 2/233 Cavendish Road

Kay excels in all aspects of selling property.

Rosann De Campo - 2/27 Lancaster Street

Kay Smith simply the best Kay Smith is head and shoulders above the rest! Her knowledge of the market and her communication skills are brilliant.

Carole & Greg Mules - 42 Brae Street

Wonderful and truly knowledgeable We thought Kay was extremely helpful and very mindful of our privacy. We just wish she sold homes in Buderim which will be the final part of our journey! Thanks Kay ! 😀

Janine & Gary Hartshorn

“I really do appreciate what you did for me –you have secured a lifelong referral base as your efforts for me were impeccable.”

Bruce Humphries

“This is a brief note to express our appreciation for your highly professional approach to marketing our property at Solar Street. You and your team at Ray White Coorparoo achieved an excellent result for us with a minimum of effort on our part, although plenty, I know, on yours.”

Paul Mowat

“We found that you were very professional in your approach to the sale of our house and also very personable. We would have no hesitation in recommending you and Ray White to our friends and neighbours.”

Nicole & Peter Zentveld

“Thank you so much for your professional and friendly service, you work really well as a team. We achieved a great price for the property and I really felt you worked hard to achieve that. Not every agent would care so much for what the Vendor wanted or aspired to. I feel a little sad now that it is all over and no longer need your services.”

Petrai Ferguson

“Thanks for achieving a great result in selling our property in Canopus St. From start to finish we felt we were in good hands -a real plus when selling from interstate. We really appreciated your knowledge of the area, your skill in conducting the sale and your genuine interest in a good outcome for both parties.”

Dorothy & Bill Outram

“Anne and I as you know have now moved on but we have no hesitation in dealing with you again and certainly I would be happy to act as a referee or offer advice to any prospective sellers or buyers. Best of luck.”

Dr & Mrs P Heathcote

“A short note to thank you for the successful sale of our Buena Vista Ave property. Your professionalism and service throughout the sales process was exceptional and you made selling the property from Sydney stress free. The quality of advertising and skill of the auction process was of a high standard. I would highly recommend your services and look forward to dealing with you in the future. Thank you again.”

Philip Noble

“This is the second time that Kay has sold a property for us. She does it with such aplomb, confidence and dignity – you can’t help be convinced that she will locate that one or two buyers you need when you are certain, convinced, there are none there; and even when they are there in a desperate buying frenzied mass, you know she will wring every last coin out of them for you without blowing the sale. You just know it. I look forward to moving a third and a fourth property with her”

Valeria & Andrew Kruck

I like dealing with the women. She is straightforward, goes the extra mile and is very professional. I judge her independently not as a Ray White franchise.
