Planning to sell

Before you start the process of selling a property, take the time to think and talk about what you want to achieve and your next steps.

Summary of important things to know
  • It’s helpful to have an idea of the current market value of your home before you start planning to sell. You can get an idea by researching online, paying a property valuer for a valuation or asking a number of real estate agents for a current market appraisal (CMA).

  • Think about what you can do to get the best price for your property and the best return on any investment to make it ready for sale.

  • Plan whether you will sell and then wait to buy a new property or whether you will buy and sell at the same time. Understand the advantages and risks with both approaches.

  • Consider how you want to sell your property and whether there are time constraints to take into account.

  • We recommend you talk to a lawyer first if the property is part of a deceased estate or held in a trust.
