Money Saving Tips for Selling Your Home

In a time when every cent counts and the cost of living is high, preparing your home for sale can feel financially daunting. But at East Realty, we are dedicated to helping our clients sell their homes while ensuring it’s a cost-effective and rewarding journey.

Here, we share some practical tips that can help you save money when selling your home.

1. Cost-Effective Home Improvement

The initial impression prospective buyers have of your home is often a key factor in the decision-making process. You want potential buyers to have no doubt in their minds about why your home is an exceptional find.

Those finishing touches can make all the difference – from a weed-free garden and manicured lawn to fully-functioning fixtures and impeccable interiors.

While home improvements may sound like a big expense, they don’t have to be. Even small improvements can have a big impact on your home’s appeal.

East Realty is on your team. Our approach includes free project management to transform your property into a market-ready masterpiece.

Whether it’s as simple as refreshing your garden, decluttering your home, or addressing minor repairs, our team is ready to assist.

2. Creative Home Staging

When it comes to selling your home, presentation is everything. It’s about creating a space that not only feels welcoming, but also allows potential buyers to envision themselves living there.

At East Realty, we understand that the right staging can truly transform a property, and we’re here to help you do it creatively and affordably.

Tracey East has a keen eye for interior aesthetics. She not only helps clients arrange their furniture to optimise the look and feel of their homes, but also provides valuable design insights.

Sometimes it’s the small, budget-friendly details that make the biggest impact. Stores like Kmart and The Warehouse have affordable treasures that can elevate the look and feel of your home.

Think soft, white fluffy towels that add a touch of luxury to the bathroom, or stylish decor pieces that breathe life into your living spaces. These subtle additions can make your home feel more inviting and appealing to potential buyers.

For a limited time, until the end of November 2023, East Realty is also offering free exquisite faux floral arrangements to adorn your property during open homes. They are the perfect finishing touch to make your home even more inviting.

3. Free Comprehensive Marketing

Our commitment to your success goes beyond preparing your home and staging it to perfection. Marketing plays a pivotal role in attracting the right buyers and ensuring your property gets the attention it deserves.

When you list your property with East Realty, you gain free access to our extensive marketing package.
