Your tips for selling a home

House price honey to the buying bees Don't expect the earth, sellers Putting yourself in the buyers' shoes

What do you wish you'd known before putting your house on the market? We asked our readers for their tips for a successful sale. 

When selling a house, you will no doubt have a good idea of what issues pertain to your property.

However, if you put yourself in the shoes of potential buyers, you may see things differently, and be better prepared.

It is worth investing in a LIM from your local council, which will set you back about $323. An inspection report will be around $500 - $700, and is also a good idea. 

These documents can point you in the right direction for work that needs doing on your property, that potential buyers will discover. 

Tackling as many issues as you can before selling means that buyers will find fewer issues with your property and have a better perception about what they are buying. 

You can also make these documents available to serious buyers so that they do not incur cost themselves, and may be more likely to make you an offer.
