Spring Selling Season

I believe in the power of doing thorough research before putting your property on the market.

If you haven’t completed your research, the time to research and prepare is now. So what are my tips for gaining the best knowledge possible before you sell?

Go along to some weekend inspections and have a peek at how other properties are marketed. Keep up with the recent sales results around the area, paying close attention to what features and properties are selling. Compare the sales prices at auctions and private treaty sales to the listing prices. These steps will help you to determine how best to market your property and its potential sales result.  If you missed out on received my latest Market Report of sales please email me on jason@abelproperty.com.au and I will send it to you electronically.

If you have any questions about the real estate market or are interested in finding out the value of your home, please feel free to contact me and I would be delighted to assist.

A child prodigy, he is unequivocally one of the most critically and commercially successful musical performers of our time, having recorded more than 30 top ten hits and having received 25 Grammy Awards.

Epitomising soul music at its most gospel-charged, her inspiring and uplifting music has empowered generations of people.
