Essential Marketing Launch

As part of our commitment to your property, we will be doing the following essential marketing when you list your property with Parkes & Partners Real Estate:

  • Placing your property in our window display
  • Launching the property on our multiple websites
  • Writing a feature editorial for the local press
  • Sending a bulk communication via email and SMS to all registered buyers
  • A local Just Listed property brochure followed by phone call

Property Checklist

The presentation of your property is a key part of a buyers first impression. Ensuring your property looks its best, prior to photographs being taken and before each open house, will give you the best opportunity to achieve an astounding result. In order to help you with this, we’ve put together a small list of ideas that you may want to consider when presenting your property.

Exterior

Always ensure that lawns are freshly cut and edged. Place fresh mulch on the garden beds. Neatly trim trees around windows and doors. Remove any clutter or rubbish from around the exterior of the house. Ensure garden hoses are neat and tidy.

Always empty bins and keep them out of the sight, if possible. Where possible, clean windows/glass on the exterior of your property. Make sure you keep garden hedges trimmed. Place additional plants to fill garden beds where needed. Clean out any visible storage and under the house, where applicable. Finalise any small painting jobs on the home or surrounding structures.

Interior

Remove any clutter to give a minimalist and welcoming feel. Ensure internal windows/glass/screens are clean, including mirrors. Wipe down window sills and clean out sliding door tracks. Steam clean carpeted areas, where possible. Check for and clean any marks on internal walls. Paint or repaint walls, if necessary. Ensure kitchen cook tops and benches are wiped clean. Wash or replace curtain/blinds where required. Remove dust build up or spider webs if applicable. Make sure all light globes and fittings are in working order.

Building and Pest Inspections

A Pest and Building Inspection is an option for someone selling their property. In the majority of cases, a buyer will be advised by their solicitor to do both prior to exchange. When going to auction it is recommended to do your own Pest and Building reports to ensure there are no issues with your home prior to the marketing campaign starting. It’s also beneficial to be able to pass these on to any of the interested parties during the campaign. Please understand these are merely suggestions to assist you in achieving the very best result possible. If you need any help with the presentation of your home or need external help with getting any work completed.
