Selling your Property?

One of the most important factors when selling your home is pricing. Pricing can determine for how long your property will be on the market and for how much it will sell in the end. If a property stays on the market for too long is becomes stale, over-exposed and generally buyers think there must be something wrong with the property. When offers do come in they are often much lower than expected.

You also don’t want to give your property away by pricing it way below Market Value and that is why you need a comprehensive and professional valuation done before going into the market. In a Buyers’ Market, where we are now, supply (stock) is high which means that buyers can shop around and drive prices down where they feel properties are over-priced.  It is not uncommon for buyers to offer around 10% less than the asking price as they are also very well informed of prices in the areas where they shop and they can see over-priced properties from a mile away.

Pricing right from the start will attract serious buyers in a shorter time and will result in higher offers being made. As a seller, stay away from agents quoting high prices for selling as they are just out to get the mandate with the idea of driving the price down over time and creating unrealistic expectations.

We Sell Property

Our property valuations are very seldom related to the current replacement values, bank valuations, insurance or municipal valuations / values as these values are often irrelevant when determining the “Market Value” / “Sellable Value” of the property.

We would love to offer you a Free Valuation including a comprehensive CMA (comparative market analysis) of the recent sales in the area / complex or estate where you stay. We specialise in Residential sales & rentals in and around the Roodepoort area. Anything from Wilgeheuwel hospital to Cradlestone Mall along Hendrik Potgieter including areas such as Helderkruin, Honey Hills, Kloofendal, Weltevreden Park, Amorosa, Poortview, Tres Jolie, Ruimsig, Allen’s Nek, Radiokop, Wilgeheuwel, Honeydew Ridge – Manor and Grove, Strubensvallei and Little Falls. We also have a partner company in Krugersdorp that can assist with similar valuations in those areas.

We have a high demand for two and three bedroom townhouses selling around the R 850 000 to R 1 200 000 mark as well as freehold single residential family homes in the same areas …… any property priced right will sell.

New-Look Blog

What do you think? Changed the theme for my blog ….. new and fresh. Although I share some personal info on my blog, it is mostly there to promote my profession and my business as a Business Owner & Real Estate Agent with Steyn Realty in Roodepoort, on the Westrand of Gauteng, Johannesburg, South Africa.

As part of all the marketing we do, blogging isn’t always that easy to “get to” but still a very effective marketing tool. Our marketing consists of the following:

  1. Boards & Dustbins – For Sale – To Let – Sold – Area Agent – Area Specialist – On Show etc …. extremely effective as many buyers, sellers, tenants & landlords drive around in the areas where the want to buy sell or rent and if they spot your details on a board you might get some business.
  2. Website portals – the main websites to advertise our property listings on are Property24 and Private Property. Other sites such as Myproperty, Entegral, IOL as well as our own website are also useful for lead generation. I must say, Entegral is doing a great job assisting estate agencies with real good-looking and user-friendly websites (not expensive) and easy to manage.
  3. Social media … need I say more. We have to be on them all … Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn …. and blogging of course. To follow all our profiles just click on the Social Networking on the home page and click to follow. We love engaging with our followers and answering any property / real estate related questions you might have.
  4. Networking ….. everywhere we go, we network, give out cards, chat to people take numbers and stay in touch as far as possible.

We are always looking for stock, Houses, Townhouses, Clusters, Flats, Estate Houses, Plots, Vacant Land, Farms or any real estate in the areas where we work ….. and we love selling. All our stock can be viewed in detail on http://www.steynrealty.co.za

Our areas where we work stretch from Sterkfontein / Krugersdorp in the West (we refer many buyers and sellers to an agency called RealPro who specializes in assisting buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants in that area). Pinehaven, Featherbrooke, Home Haven in the West all along Hendrik Potgieter towards Ruimsig, Amorosa, up the hill towards Helderkruin, Kloofendal etc. Around Clearwater Mall, Wilgeheuwel, Strubensvallei, Little Falls, Radiokop, Allen’s Nek towards Wilgeheuwel Hospital.

We do a lot of Sectional Title sales and Rentals although the last couple of months towards the end of 2016 and the start of 2017 we have assisted some more sellers, selling their Houses in the area.

If you or anyone you know are looking to buy, sell or rent out their property, we would love to assist. We can assist with free, market related valuations for selling or rental purposes. We advertise on all major websites and social media as explained above. We screen all our tenants through the TPN Credit Bureau and we also make use of the TPN Rentbook system to manage and invoice our tenants.
