There can be no denying that property prices have softened across Sydney this year — the statistics prove this. The general Northern Beaches median house price is $1,805,000, down from last month’s $1,830,000. However, Spring and Summer on the Northern Beaches has always been a favourite time to take your property to market and it still is!
THE SWEET SPOT
The good news, buyers still want to be on the Northern Beaches – so we are still seeing high levels of interest!
BUYERS – there is not the same sense of urgency there has been in the market which is good news, lot’s more choice and lower property prices.
SELLERS – Quality homes are still attracting interest and ARE selling. Remember whilst prices are not where they were a few months back, there is still HUGE capital growth on investments to be enjoyed.
HOW TO SWEETEN THE DEAL
1ST IMPRESSIONS COUNT – A fresh coat of paint or new carpet. It is sooo easy to create a welcoming entrance and gain that good first impression from prospective buyers.
DE-CLUTTER – Roll the sleeves up for an overdue Spring clean! Wash windows, dust blinds, launder curtains & clean appliances. De-personalise the space, sort through your home – declutter, donate or discard items you don’t use. Even straighten the contents of your wardrobe… anything that helps maximise storage potential.
STYLE – Go Shaynna Blaze style and stage!!! Simply leave enough furniture in each room to show its purpose. Add some on-trend cushions or throws, new fluffy towels in the bathroom. Or we can recommend a professional to stage your home.
THE EXTERIOR – As we near Summer, the lighter longer days can show up the cobwebs or dirt, so power wash the exterior, invest in a lick of paint like white or cream to maximise the sense of space and get stuck into the garden!
