Frequently Asked Questions
A quick guide on the important things to know about selling your home.
When’s the best time to put my home on the market?
There are always buyers looking for quality properties in the Kapiti area and we can locate them at any time of the year. That said, if your home offers a particular seasonal appeal, it can be worth waiting for those months. The only time we recommend you avoid, if possible, is the Christmas and New Year holiday period (December 20th to January 10th) when the market quietens.
How long will it take to sell my home?
There are a number of factors that determine how long your property will be on the market, and no two homes are the same. However, we work towards an average of between three and six weeks. You should also allow another two weeks for us to prepare your home and marketing campaign.
How does the Della Randall team secure a premium price?
Our marketing and sales system has been honed over three decades to gain a premium result for our sellers. A key part of this is taking the time to understand your goals and how we can achieve them. We’ll discuss potential ways to increase the value of your home and present it to the market. Then our team of specialists will set to work and take care of all the details, ensuring a worry-free experience.
What makes your marketing strategy so successful?
We recognise how complex the property market can be and how many aspects there are to securing successful offers. That’s why we’ve created a team of specialists to provide expert support in every area of the process. Our strategy begins with identifying areas where we can add value to your overall result. We know that the highest prices often come from buyers who live outside the Kapiti area, so we’ll work with you to create an optimal marketing package that showcases your property both physically and online.
How can I make sure my home appeals to buyers?
The way your home is presented can make a substantial difference to the speed of sale and quality of offer. One of the most impactful yet simplest things you can do is put unnecessary belongings and furniture into storage. This immediately makes your home look and feel bigger. It also allows buyers to imagine themselves in the space more easily. First impressions are lasting so it’s worth making sure the arrival area of your home is welcoming and the gardens are tidy.
Is it worth paying for a home stylist?
Buying a home is an emotional decision as much as financial, so it is worth getting advice that may strengthen that connection. A professional stylist will make simple suggestions that will help your property look and feel its best. If your home is empty, they can recommend quality furniture to hire that will compliment the home and style, and enable buyers to imagine the lifestyle available to them.
