Buyers are always keen to find their dream home and yours might be just the one.
If you’re looking to sell your home and think it might need a little love to find the right buyer, the best place to start is to consider your budget and how long it will take you to do a makeover. Every journey starts somewhere and selling your home is a journey.
Okay, so you want to sell your home, whether it’s a house or an apartment. Sunshine Coast Real Estate is a competitive market, so you have to bring your ‘A game’!
A good thing to do BEFORE you list, is to visit some ‘open for inspections’ of similar homes to yours and in the local area. You will immediately get a feeling for what’s ‘working’ and the current market value. Listen. Listen to what other people at the viewing are saying. You’ll hear comments about the kitchen, the paint colours, the layout etc. While they are not always relevant to your property, you begin to get a sense of the market and trends.
Sometimes, it's the little things that count. Little cosmetic additions or changes don’t always help you realise a better sales price, BUT they can make for a faster sale. Obviously large jobs like renovations to an old kitchen or adding more bedrooms, will always increase the selling price, but not everyone has either the budget or the desire to undertake large projects. Little changes can do wonders to the appeal of any home.
The first thing to do is make sure your property is presentable at its best. If you take an unbiased, emotionally detached view and walk around your home like a potential buyer would, you’ll see things that need to be improved. Make a list of all ...
You would be surprised how many times we get asked this question -

Seems like a fairly simple and straight forward proposition, doesn’t it?
But believe me, one of these scenarios is fraught with danger.
We expect demand for houses for sale, Sunshine Coast and especially Peregian Beach real estate to remain high.
Why? Even, despite the recent interest rate rise?
Normally, interest rate rises dampen the market. The more expensive the property, the higher the repayments. So demand slows a little, right? And prices fall accordingly....

Now that we have heard the news that the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has increased interest rates, what does it really mean for those looking at buying or selling Sunshine Coast real estate?
We all know that the cost of petrol, food and life's essentials has surged. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 2.1% in the first quarter of 2022, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Interest rates are one the main tools used by the banking system to manage inflation rates. A rise in rates means it is more expensive to borrow money, and sometimes that leads to less demand for goods and services. So the RBA is raising rates to control inflation.
