3 Ways to Make More Money when selling your home

Welcome to May! We have certainly seen the beginnings of winter (finally) and the rain is feeding our parched gardens and pastures. Before long, tufts of green grass will add to the already glorious Autumn display across South Australia.

It’s also the time of year we celebrate “Mum” and we’re excited to tell you about our Mother’s Day Giveaway. But more on that later.

Perhaps you have been waiting for your garden to green up a little before placing your home on the market? Or maybe you’re not even thinking of selling but you’re always keen to learn more about the housing marketing and selling strategies.


Most people will sell real estate at least once in their lifetime and the decision will either cost you money or earn you money. It’s that simple.

For some, selling can be an emotional experience. For most, it is the biggest financially impacting event they will ever encounter. Get the sale process wrong and you could lose thousands of dollars you will never get back. Get it right and you could maximise your financial position considerably.

Here are 3 ways to help you understand how you can make more money when selling your property.

    Appoint an agent who will pay the marketing costs and other associated fees, saving you on average $3,000
    Appoint an agent who will assist with documentation, saving you on average $500
    Any Agreed Price VS Highest Price

The first two ways are important and very straightforward. The third way, Negotiation, is even more important, needs explanation and requires your full attention.

You see, real estate agents are typically not trained negotiators. They are ‘commission paid’ therefore ‘commission focused. NO SALE = NO PAY

But what does this actually mean? 

  • A poor negotiator is likely to lose 2%, if not more, of your property’s true value.
  • An average negotiator may or may not achieve the true property value.
  • A trained and skilled negotiator can obtain at least 2% more than the property’s true value.

To ensure you achieve your best financial outcome, it is important to understand how ‘Any Agreed Price vs Highest Price’ works in your own situation.

When the time comes to sell, do you want more money in your pocket?
