Anyone who has sold a property in Perth or anywhere in Australia for that matter, will know the frustration of a delayed settlement date. Especially if you’ve already had or purchased another property. But what are the factors that effects settlement? What can you do to prevent any delays and speed up the process?
The short answer is that there are many factors, and prioritising them in order is a very difficult task; since it differs depending on your current situation. But something that I have read was about how immaculate the property looks will actually speed up the process. Well with that being said, let’s talk about immaculate gardens! Yep, an immaculate garden – believe it or not will tend to speed up the settlement process. Since we’re talking about gardens, I think it is fair to say that this post belongs right here in this blog!
After talking to an agent representing Settlement Agents Perth, of whom you can find out more about at their website: http://www.perthsettlementagentswa.com.au they’ve said the following to why an immaculate garden could very well help speed up your settlement process..
Looks is Everything
Whether we like it or not. People tend to perceive quality based on looks, especially if they have no other things to compare it against. So it is in your best interest to make sure your property, including your garden is immaculate and presentable. That way, the buyer will itch to move in!
What You See is What You Get
Similarly to the above, what you see tend to be what you will be getting. What do I mean by that? Well, if the outside is clean and well looked after it will usually mean that the inside of the house is also very presentable.
Australians Loves Gardening!
Let’s face it, us Aussies love to spend our time outdoor doing the garden. If you don’t believe, all you have to is look around you.. the next time you go to a barbeque; just have a look at their garden. Most often than not it will be very presentable.
So what do you think? Does a nice looking garden will make a buyer want to move in earlier? Comment below!
