Divide and Prosper!

Purchasing property on larger blocks in older subdivisions can generate extensive profits if the property can be subdivided.

In recent years local council regulations have varied and smaller subdivision is allowable in certain areas. This change in policy has allowed an opportunity to purchase older property in older subdivisions where a developer/renovator can undertake the renovation of the existing dwelling and subdivide the land creating the opportunity of profit.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Contact local council and familiarise yourself with its policies in relation to subdivision and development.
  • Identify the types of areas where you can find suitable properties for subdivision.
  • Canvas those areas with agents and personally to see if you can find a seller.
  • Make sure you have your finance in place so that you are ready to act should the opportunity arise.
  • Keep you first project simple. A small, successful sub-division will put you in good stead for future projects
  • Always do your homework on the area, market and property!

Who Got The Biggest?

I have come across this article written by a well respected valuer which I believe is well worth reading.

Who’s got the biggest?

When it comes to land area, size matters.  Or at least it used to.  More recently, with affordability pressures from a buyer’s perspective, yield pressures from a development perspective and urban management from a policy perspective, we have seen an extended trend towards smaller blocks of land across each of the capital cities.

Why the Best Selling Season is Spring?

Spring is often regarded as the “selling season”.

Gardens are brighter, the climate ideal, and generally better prices are obtained. If you’re thinking of selling this spring, now is the time for preparations.

It’s often wise to spruce up your property, finish any DIY projects and make sure your property is ready to attract the best possible price.

Another advantage of marketing your property in spring is that buyers and sellers can be moved and established in their new premises, ready for Christmas.

If you are thinking of selling this spring contact us for a free copy of our book “How to sell your home for a dream price in record time!”

The Three Essential Things You Must Do to Sell Your Home at the Right Price, Swiftly!

Thinking of selling and wondering whether you can obtain a fair price?

Selling your largest asset is a serious business, however, regardless of the market place, there are three vital tips to consider prior to placing your home on the market:

Tips to selling:

  1. Price – Price your home correctly and it’s three quarters sold. Few buyers purchase the first home they see. Generally they look at numerous properties, study the market place and become knowledgeable about property values. Pricing your home correctly is vitally important.
  2. Presentation – Make sure your home is well presented. Clean, open, bright and without clutter always works well. Make any repairs before placing your home on the market.
  3. Marketing – Select your agent well and have them design an effective marketing campaign in order to obtain the best price.

By following these three tips you can attract a buyer at the right price and quickly!
