Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening depending on what time you’re watching this video. Rachael Goldsworthy just checking in with you from the Hawkesbury, and wanted to say in regards to all of the rain that we’ve had lately, it’s a really good time to have a look at houses when it has been raining. Reason being, you can see whether it’s water tight, what the drainage is like, what the fall on the property’s like that may not necessarily be apparent if it is a dry day out there. Anyway, just thought I’d just check in and let you know that. Any questions, don’t hesitate to give me a call, always happy to help and talk about property. 45-77-9964, we’ll catch up with you soon.

Hi, my name is Rachael Goldsworthy, and we’re just heading off to a house in South Windsor. That particular house we’ve been asked to have a look at because the owner is unsure as to what to do prior to putting it on the market. There’s a couple of things that they want us to have a look through. Whether it needs the painting and the gardens and those sorts of things, but also things such as garden ornaments or garages, whether they should be there or not. Sometimes garages are attached to a house. Sometimes they are separated, so they can add value depending on the make and materials that have been used. However, sometimes they can also be an eyesore.
That’s something that an agent can do, come out to the house prior to you putting the house on the market to make it a little bit easier for you, and give you a list of one to 10 of items for you to do, prioritise and put a timeline on it, and also come back and check. The other thing that’s really important with that process is things that buyers are looking for in that marketplace at that particular time that you’re selling, things such as built in wardrobes. Whether the, if you’re looking at replacing the roof because it’s dilapidated whether a tile or iron roof is more preferred by the buyer.
Little things like that that make all of the difference for the buyer, so if you’ve got any questions at all in regards to what you’re doing when it comes to the sale of your house, don’t hesitate to give me a call. I’ll be more than happy to walk you through that.
Hi, my name is Rachael Goldsworthy, and I’ve just come from a inspection at a home that had a valuation done on it. With evaluations they’re always done after contracts are exchanged, and it’s just to ensure that the bank’s lending the money against the right value, and they want to ensure that their not lending over and above what the home could potentially be worth. The situation is if the home is sold often a home is very close to market value or over and above market value, or what they perceive to be market value. In that instance, if the valuation doesn’t come up trumps, that means that obviously the agent’s done a really good job, and you’ve got more than what they perceive the market value to be of the home.
Equal it means that money needs to come from somewhere to ensure that it gets sold. For example, if the home is sold for 500,000 and the valuer thought that the home was only worth 490,000 it means that that difference of $10,000 needs to be met by somebody. Either the buyer comes up to that 500,000 by putting $10,000 into it, or the vendor if the buyer is unable to, is then asked the question whether they are willing to sell the home at 490 as opposed to 500, the agreed sale price.
It just depends on an individual circumstance, so it’s a case by case basis. It’s just a matter of working out each time that you sell your home as to how things pan out. Usually, nine times out of 10 you’re fine, or maybe eight times out of 10 you’re fine, but sometimes you’ll find that the home is not valued as high as what it might have been sold for. Sometimes it’s a process of negotiation, but it’s all good. If it’s managed in the correct way, it’s an easy process to follow. All right, if you’ve got any other questions in regards to those sorts of things or real estate, don’t hesitate to give me a call.
