A: Anytime if you have a need to move or to reduce debt.

However if time is on your side you should consider that property prices do fluctuate up and down like the share market. This is difficult to see on a daily bases, our team live and breathe real estate so are closely attuned to what the market is doing. Most Real Estate values are affected by supply and demand. There are always exceptions to this rule and some seasonal and economic factors that you may want to consider which could work in your favour or work against you for achieving a higher price for your property. Some houses are better suited to certain times of year (for example a great spring garden, a summer time pool or a northerly aspect in winter).

Most franchised Real Estate Agents recommend to sell in spring, which can cause an oversupply of property on the market which can weaken prices. Another important factor is the types of buyers that Fusion Realty can attract to your property. E.g. Overseas investors, interstate transients moving as careers change, investors who are cashed up needing to invest, and qualified buyers from our database who are ready to buy but have not been able to purchase due to a lack of supply in their desired property type.

A: Once your home is placed on the market, the length of time it takes to sell depends on a number of circumstances. Contributing factors may be Price, Location and the current Market. A Fusion real estate agent can give a general estimation on the approximate number time that it will take to sell.

A: The Auction method for selling real estate is best suited to persons who have an urgent need to sell where the final selling price is less important than the time available to sell. Auctions are preferred by most real estate agents as it helps promote their business more than it promotes the property, and the owner pays for it all. Other circumstances where the Auction method of selling may suite your property is when your property is unique or is a rare opportunity for a property buyer to purchase your type of property. If there is a legal dispute or a potential legal disputed over the selling proceeds, like a divorce, or a deceased estate then the Auction method is advisable. Otherwise you are better served selling by Private Treaty (For Sale) as it is technically known. To fully comprehend which method is better for you it is best explained in person to find out more talk to one of our experienced agents to work through all the finer points with you.

A: Yes you can sell your property while it is currently being leased, but any potential purchaser must be told there is a current lease in place and that the property will not be sold with vacant possession.

The tenant has the right to occupy the residence until the end of the lease term, unless both parties negotiate and agree to terminate the existing agreement.

In some cases, the fact your property has reliable tenants in place may actually be appealing to prospective investors

A: A brief description for a contract of sale is that it is a seller’s disclosure document containing a copy of the title documents, drainage diagram and the Zoning Certificate issued by the local council. A property owner must disclose to any potential real estate buyers known faults, encumbrances, or any other thing that may affect the property value. Property exclusions must also be included and a statement of the buyer’s cooling off rights must be attached. A residential property cannot be advertised for sale until a Contract of Sale has been prepared and in the sales agents possession. 

A: There are several different kinds of agency agreements for the sale of residential property. The answer to this question depends on the method of sale chosen. The following is an example of the most common type of agreements.

Exclusive agency agreements

Exclusive agency agreements are commonly used for the sale of residential property when it is being sold by Private Treaty. (The For Sale Method)

Auction agency agreement

This is effectively an exclusive agency agreement where the property is listed for auction, but may have a provision for a reserve price to be set (used when auctioning a property).

Before deciding what method of sale is appropriate for your property we would recommend that you contact us for an obligation free chat. This could make you thousands of extra dollars when you sell, and save you money in advertising resulting in you collecting the most money from the sale.

A: When prospective buyers become serious about pursuing the purchase of your property, many will engage professional companies to conduct building and pest inspections. These inspections are not compulsory and are the responsibility of the buyer. The buyer needs to ensure that if they intend to have these inspections conducted; arrangements need to be made prior to signing the contract of sale or bidding at auction Sellers should prepare themselves for visits from such professionals/companies which will usually take place during business hours – sellers will most likely be able to work with their Fusion real estate agent to arrange access to the property.

A: Conveyancing is a term that refers to the transfer of ownership of a property -most buyers enlist the services of either a conveyancer or real estate property solicitor or solicitor to handle this process on their behalf.

While you are able to act on your own when making a property purchase, the process of documentation and settling can be complicated, time consuming and may seem daunting. Bringing in support from an expert who is familiar with legal documents and legislation can make the process easier.

A: Once you have appointed your conveyancer or real estate property solicitor, they will be responsible for a number of tasks as they help you through the settlement process.

These jobs include acting as a liaison between you and your lender’s solicitor, checking your contract of sale, performing title searches and acting as your legal representative for the transaction.

Your conveyancer or real estate property solicitor will also check on a number of important things for you, including whether there are any outstanding rates on the property – such as council taxes or water payments. In some cases, your conveyancer or real estate property solicitor will also check over your loan documents for you.

An off-market sale is often used to describe a property that has been sold privately by Fusion Realty, without any public advertising. What this means for homeowners is that they are presented with an acceptable offer and agree to sell off-market without promoting the fact that their property is for sale.
A lot of homeowners choosing to use an off-market sale method, may have problems with their neighbours or some family members, being to nosy about their situation, such as financial stress, divorce or even a deceased estate; regardless of the reason however most people have one thing in common they need the sale to take place urgently so they can take care of higher priority things in their lives.

A quick sale if priced well.
Usually sold with more terms and conditions which can make the sale process faster, e.g. shorter or no cooling off periods, settlement periods may be shorter or larger deposits may be required.
A cheaper cost since there is no advertising campaign; simply using the agents database

A: All their costs and fees are negotiable. It is important to enquire about their costs and fees before you agree to appoint anyone. Ask the question, are there any other cost that you may impose on the conveyancing process that we have not discussed. A professional conveyancer or real estate property solicitor should disclose and have a cost agreement in place before they start the conveyancing process. Add your own paragraph to the cost agreement, “The conveyancer or real estate property solicitor agrees not to charge any other type of fee other than what is stated here. Should the conveyancer or real estate property solicitor miss quoted on them pricing they will wear the additional costs and put it down to a learning experience like every other business or firm operating in the customer service industry.”

A: There are a number of points to consider when choosing a conveyancer or real estate property solicitor.

  • Are they readily available to communicate with you and the real estate agents?
  • (It is an unfortunate reality that a property purchaser often loses the property of their dreams due to a poor communication from conveyancer or real estate property solicitor. If you find it difficult to get in touch with your conveyancer or real estate property solicitor change them promptly as you won’t be the only one having those same difficulties.)
  • Do they provide the level of service you are looking for?
  • Can they provide you with the name of a recent past client who has used their services? (Nothing wrong with seeking a testimonials from a past client to check their customer service record)
  • You may be looking for a conveyancer or real estate property solicitor who can explain the process to you – particularly if you are a first-time buyer – so it is important to ensure they have time to take you through every step of the process.
  • You may also wish to consider location – you may want your conveyancer or real estate property solicitor to be locally-based or easily accessible.
