House Prices Eatons Hill
For the latest developed area of Eatons Hill, prices are mostly above the median price for the suburb. Therefore a different approach to pricing a home is needed.
Researching the suburb for homes of a similar style is very important, so you can advise the seller on a good starting price for their home.
When we research a property, we look for homes that are comparable, for example the same number of bedrooms and inclusions such as pools. Then we look at how long these homes have been on the market, their original price, and how much the price was reduced to before selling.
3 Things a Seller Must Do to get the Best Sale Price
- Prepare your home for sale.
Many people will begin to We have two booklets available for free to download on our web site. 101 Tips for Preparing Your Home for the Market and Maintaining and Preparing your home for Profit. These are useful tools to help you maximise the sale price of a property.
- Mentally prepare yourself for selling
Many sellers go on the market without thinking about what is going to take place. What happens if an offer comes in on day one? If you are not prepared you might think “it’s only been on the market for a day we might get a better offer” and knock back what could potentially be a good offer.
- Declutter your home.
This may sound simple enough to do but very few people do it well. Decluttering doesn’t mean you go around and pick up the kids toys or put the mower in the garden shed. You are about to sell your home!
Go to the storage place and buy packing boxes enough to pack all your surplus belongings into, leaving the bare minimum. Doing this has many beneficial effects including:
– Helping you to mentally prepare.
– Allowing you to get rid of excess belongings you no longer need.
– Preparing your home for photography.
– Breaking up the packing and moving process, making it easier.
Pricing dangers for sellers in Eatons Hill
Fake Pricing Methods
Many agents have started using fake pricing methods to manipulate the real estate search engines. These methods are normally only successful at attracting buyers at a lower price point than the property is worth. Read more about Fake Pricing Methods on our blog post here.
This is usually caused by lack of research, a lazy agent or distrust by the seller in the agent. Over pricing a home for the market is the most dangerous undertaking a seller can do in the sales process. An overpriced property will take longer to sell. If a property sits on the market with no interest, it will send a message to buyers that something must be wrong with the home. Therefore, the result will be a lower sale price.

NOTE: The biggest thing most sellers need to remember is price = time.
