When it comes to selling anything it is important to present it in it’s best light. This could never be truer for residential homes. Often it’s the presentation and cleanliness of a home that tip a buyer towards one property or turns them off another. Here are some helpful hints to make your property stand out above the rest…

First Impressions Count

As the old adage goes, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” Make sure that your property is ready for photographs and inspections when you list it for sale. Once a buyer has viewed your house on the internet you won’t get a second chance to do the dishes or make the beds etc. – so make your first impression a good one.

Clean Clean Clean!

Seeing other people’s mess in what could be their home is often a deterrent to buyers. Whilst it’s not always possible to keep your home in display house condition, kitchens and bathrooms are important areas to keep clean and tidy. Open the windows to let fresh air in when the property is being inspected.

A Place For Everything And Everything In It’s Place

Clutter can make rooms appear to be smaller that they actually are. By clearing rooms and benches of personal items buyers can fully appreciate the space that is available.

Man’s Best Friend

You may love your furry friends, but potential buyers may not! Try and eliminate pet odours and fur, make sure your lawn is clear of excrement and if possible take your pets out when you have an inspection.

How you present your property can have a huge impact on the sales price achieved. Ask one of our Sales Representatives how you can improve your chances of a quick sale when you get your appraisal. Call H&N Perry Real Estate on 9535 1822 today.

H&N Perry recently conducted an auction for the well known commercial hotspot, 33 Pinjarra Road. Situated right in the heart of Mandurah opposite the Post Office, the property hadn’t been offered for sale in over 25 years. Consisting of 6 tenancies (5 of them with leases) the sale was never going to be a straight forward one, so Auctioneer Frank Lawrence suggested taking the property to auction.

As with all of our properties that go to auction, H&N Perry conducted an extensive marketing campaign for four weeks prior to the auction day. This campaign included newspaper advertising in the local Mandurah Mail as well as targeted adverts in the Commercial section of the West Australian and direct email and telephone marketing to our existing commercial database.

The property received strong interest prior to auction however on auction day the crowd were quite reserved in their bidding. The property was eventually passed in.

This may seem like a disappointing result for all of the effort that was spent on preparing for auction, however the benefit of conducting a saturated advertising campaign and setting a definite sale date is that it draws out the genuinely interested buyers. Even though the property was passed in at auction, negotiations with the interested parties began immediately afterwards and the property was SOLD not long after.

Frank Lawrence in WA’s leading auctioneer, having won REIWA’s Auctioneering Championship for a record 4 times. He specialises in both commercial and residential auctions. If results are important to you, call Frank Lawrence from H&N Perry on 0412 903 375 and let him explain the full benefits of putting your property under the hammer.

This month the WA State Government announced that it would be slashing the First Home Owners Grant on established properties from $7,000 to just $3,000. Approximately 70% of first home buyers purchase an established property as their first home which means that many people will be $4,000 worse off when the new measures kick in on 15th September 2013.

If you’ve been thinking about buying your first home, it would be a wise idea to bring that purchase forward in order to receive the full $7,000 grant. We suggest you approach your finance broker or lender and have your pre-approval ready to make an offer before September 15th. Any offers to purchase that are accepted after this date will see eligible first home buyers $4,000 out of pocket.

Mandurah is an excellent location for first home buyers to take their first step onto the property ladder. It has an abundance of affordable property in a waterside location with easy access to Perth via the rail link. H&N Perry currently have over 20 listings for properties under $400,000 that would be ideal for first home buyers. These properties range from 4 bedroom houses through to duplexes and units.

Vist the H&N Perry website http://www.hnperry.com.au or call us on 9535 1822 and let our experienced sales representatives guide you through your first venture into the property market.

Most suburbs in the Mandurah Murray region recorded positive growth for the quarter but more importantly the number of sales for the area are significantly higher than in recent years showing a return of consumer confidence in real estate.

Overall the Mandurah Murray area experienced a solid 4% growth in the annual median house price bringing it up to $390,000. There has been continued demand for properties under $400,000 with the flow on to mid-range properties starting to take effect.

In a historic move, the Reserve Bank of Australia lowered the official interest rate to 2.5% today. This is the lowest interest rates have been since 1959! The National Australia Bank has already confirmed that it will be passing on the full discount to it’s customers. This is fantastic news to home owners and property investors who now have the opportunity to pay off their home loans faster.

It is also a great opportunity for those who have been waiting to enter the property market to take full advantage of these historically low interest rates. Lending facilities are offering a variety of loan types including fixed interest loans and partly fixed loans. So, if you are worried about fluctuating mortgage repayments, now would be an ideal time to lock your mortgage in at an excellent rate that is affordable.

The economy in Western Australia has remained strong for several years and it is predicted that it will remain strong for many more due to the mining resources sector. Property values have been climbing steadily since the beginning of the year however Mandurah still has some of the most affordable beachside property in WA.

H&N Perry strongly suggest that now is the time to talk to your Mortgage Broker or Lend and find out what your borrowing capacity is. Whether you are a first home buyer, investor, upsizer or downsizer, we have a huge range of property for sale that would suit your needs.

Housing affordability is a topic that is covered regularly in the media. There are many claims that housing in Western Australia is unaffordable however the facts would suggest that this is not the case. Housing affordability is calculated by taking into account a household’s entire income compared to the size of the mortgate or rent payable. It is expected that no more than 30% of a household’s income should be spent on rent or repayments in order for it to be considered affordable.

Statistics released by the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) show that at the end of the 2012, the proportion of family income need to meet mortgage repayments in Western Australia was 22% compared with the national average of 30.4%. For renters, the proportion of family income needed to meet rent repayments was 21% compared to the national average of 23.9%. These figures indicate that the majority of Western Australians are able to afford to either rent or purchase a property comfortably.

Mandurah is a particularly affordable area to live. In fact, Mandurah suburbs have consistently appeared in Landgate’s Top Ten Most Affordable House Sales every week. Recently a 3×1 home on a 1204m2 block in Falcon sold for just $290,000. To be able to buy a house on a quarter acre lot within 1km of the beach is amazing value for money! For renters, Mandurah is equally as attractive with a median rent of $370 per week compared to $480 per week in the Perth Metro area.

Whether you are interested in buying, selling or leasing a property, Mandurah’s longest established real estate agency can help you. Call H&N Perrry on 9535 1822 or visit our waterfront office on Mandurah Terrace.

Well, most parents packed their children off to school this morning for the start of Term 3. With the kids back in the classroom and off your hands, there’s never been a better chance to catch up on all of those things you’ve been meaning to do around the house.

Spring is just around the corner which has traditionally been the highest season for selling property. If you’re thinking about selling this Spring, now is the time to start preparing your home for sale. A good start is to pack away all of those items that clutter up our homes. A clutter free home gives the feeling of spaciousness and helps make rooms feel larger. Wall chips can be patched and general maintenance should be undertaken (leaky taps etc.).

Winter weather often wreaks havoc on our gardens and outdoor areas but it is also an ideal time to plant with plenty of moisture in the soil and Mother Nature taking care of the watering. By planting now your gardens should be in full bloom by Spring. It would also be a good idea to clean out the gutters to prevent any overflow which could cause damage.

When you list your property with H&N Perry our Sales Representatives can provide you with handy advice on how to make your home more attractive to buyers. Often it’s the little things that can make all the difference to a prospective purchaser’s view. Call H&N Perry today on 9535 1822 to discuss listing and preparing your house for sale.

It looks as though Mandurah is set to become one of the nation’s hottest property locations according to professional property analyst Terry Ryder.

Last week The Sunday Times reported the results of Mr Ryder’s Quarterly Ryder Report. Mandurah residents should be pleased to hear that Mandurah was the only WA inclusion in the national list “10 Locations Set To Zoom IF…”. Mr Ryder was quoted as saying “after four to five years of poor performance, (it) is showing signs of a comeback, assisted by its popularity with mining personnel who choose the region for its water based lifestyle. Gavin Hegney from Hegney Property Group also added, “There is a lot going for it (Mandurah). It has some of the cheapest beachfront land in Perth. I like Halls Head, Falcon and there’s some interesting options near the estuary. I also like some of the northern areas like Madora Bay…”.

Mandurah is indeed one of the most affordable regions to live considering the lifestyle opportunities that it offers its residents. In fact, Landgate’s data reveals that 3 out of the cheapest 10 property sales in WA last week were Mandurah suburbs. The week before that Mandurah suburbs appeared in 4 out of the 10 cheapest sales across WA. If you want to get a bargain, we would suggest you don’t wait too long. Mandurah suburbs have also appeared in the Highest Number of Sales in WA for the last 3 weeks proving that its popularity is climbing steadily.

If you’re looking at buying or selling in the Mandurah region, let Mandurah’s longest established real estate, H&N Perry look after you. Our sales reps can provide you with a genuine appraisal on your property’s value and show you some of the great value for money real estate that is available on today’s market.
