Sales strategies see Donvale homes sold quickly

December 17th 2008

Fletchers sells 3 homes in Donvale and another in Doncaster East for a great price.

Fletchers has just sold 3 homes in Donvale and another in Doncaster East and each for a great price. Sales Manager Peter Fort says these sales indicate the market is still steady; if you have the right attitude then you can sell in any market.
“Provided a property is appraised correctly from the outset, that it’s well presented and professionally marketed, it should sell in a reasonable time frame,” he said. “Agents must appraise a property correctly from the beginning because if they don’t vendors are misled about the true value of their home. The property can then languish on the market for months.
“You also need a marketing campaign that works. It needs to be drawn up in consultation with the vendor and target those sectors of the community you know would be interested in the property. Once again owners need professional advice about this, so they can be sure they’re going to maximize the sale price,” Peter said.
“With the latest interest rate cuts announced by the Reserve Bank, the market will be even better now in the lead up to Christmas. “I think the traditional Spring market plus the interest rate cuts will ensure a continuing healthy market. Buyers we already have on our database are keen to buy soon. “There is a healthy mix of investors, empty nestors, first home buyers and those who want to upsize to a 4 bedroom family home. Anyone thinking of making a move would be well advised to speak with us to ensure they get the right advice.

Choosing the wrong agent could cost thousands,” he said. “Fletchers being a long standing family business is renowned for its professionalism and premium results. Peter is delighted with Fletchers latest sales results, which have seen a property at 43 Roy Street, Donvale sold for $499,000. He said this inviting 4 bedroom home had been updated inside and out and was located close to an array of local amenities.

“Another great sale is 3/39 Leslie Street, Donvale which sold for $442,000. This is a meticulously maintained single level villa unit. Featuring 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms this traditionally styled home has generous formal and casual living areas,” Peter said.

”One particularly striking residence we sold recently is 8 Colwyn Court, Donvale. Of immense appeal to large or extended families this 6 bedroom property sold for $640,000.

Another beautifully kept home that sold well is 22 Thomas Street, Doncaster East. It went for $479,000 and has many features including 3 double bedrooms. Privately situated behind a tall brick fence this residence is quietly positioned near Beverley Hills Primary School, the bus and Tunstall Square shops.”

If you are planning to deal in real estate in Doncaster East or the surrounding areas, remember Fletchers has been operating there for many years with great success. That alone is enough to recommend them, let alone the expertise and professionalism of their staff.
