Preparing Your Home For Sale

Step 1

Your home is your greatest asset 

In life and real estate, it is often said that your principal place of residence is possibly your biggest asset. As industry professionals, we find this true for so many people in the community who we represent. 

With this in mind, it is important that you do all you can to maintain the property throughout its lifetime, in order to protect and grow your asset. This way, at the time of eventual sale, you receive the best possible cash profit from your investment. 

Your home could deliver you a tax-free windfall 

Selling your home is a valuable opportunity for wealth and profit. Unlike other financial investments, your principal place of residence is free from capital gains tax and stamp duty. Therefore, a chance of a tax-free gain is rare. 

Selling is a one-off opportunity for profit 

Selling your home presents a unique opportunity to make a good deal of money. Typically every dollar your home sells for over the perceived market value is worth two dollars of your hard-earned labour. 

Secure the dollars you deserve for the property you own. You get only one chance to sell for profit and then the value passes on to the next owner.
