Before and after - helping you get the best sale price for your property

Presenting your home in its best light can add tens of thousands of dollars to the property's sale price. 

If your property is tired, outdated and totally underwhelming - with some glaring structural problems thrown in - if buyers even bother to come to the open for inspections, they'll be trying to negotiate down on price.

At hockingstuart Ballarat, we provide our vendors with advice on what updates they can make to their property to ensure that they get the best price. We know local tradespeople and businesses who can assist at short notice and we also know what changes are worth making that will add value to the final sale price. There is no point updating the kitchen for example, if it will cost $25,000 to replace but will only add $10,000 to the sale price. 

Such suggestions can include:

  • Minor renovations and repairs
  • Updating carpets 
  • Updating window furnishings
  • Decluttering
  • Painting the interior
  • Painting the exterior
  • Tidying the garden
  • Hiring furniture

Below are some before and after pictures from 5 Kylie Court, Mount Clear which had the interior painted, window furnishings updated and hire furniture installed. 

It is amazing what good photography can do for a property as well!
