C&G’s Guide on Selling Your Home during COVID-19

It’s almost business as usual here at Chisholm and Gamon. Our offices continue to remain busy, marketing an impressive portfolio of Bayside properties and achieving fantastic sales and leasing results. Thinking of putting your asset on the market? Don’t let the lockdown restrictions get you down! C&G’s latest blog is filled with expert tips for attracting buyers online and via considered private inspection.

Fortunately, the real estate category remains an essential service. Our profession showed that we could rise to the challenge, quickly adapting our services to reflect Government guidelines during the first Victorian lockdown. With innovative digital tools at our disposal, Chisholm & Gamon has the skills to help your listing (also known as your property!) reach the right audience and enjoy a stellar result.

Current stage 3 restrictions on metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire allow for Victorians to inspect and purchase property, as well as move homes. You will be able to enter and leave these two regions if you are travelling for either of these purposes. During this time, C&G will be conducting our auctions online and hosting one-on-one private inspections for interested clients. We also offer an interactive 3D tour for clients who feel more comfortable viewing property remotely.

So how can you ensure your home will achieve the same level of interest in this new lockdown environment? The same core principles of good marketing will apply – motivate your buyers with a beautiful property and a spectacular first impression! A feature of the ‘COVID-19’ market will be increased competition between vendors, as more investors head online to limit their physical interaction. Purchasers may be more selective, making the appointment of an agent with a true marketing strategy essential to success. This may mean investing in professional home staging and innovative photography and videography to secure that buyer. Word to the wise: home staging can prove beneficial for both private inspections and virtual tours.

Chisholm and Gamon are the agents of strategy in Bayside Melbourne. We love helping our clients achieve their real estate goals. Whether selling has just crossed your mind or you’re well into the planning process, do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns!
