However, once this rush of activity has passed, there is no need to feel concerned or anxious as the level of enquiry decreases.
Most buyers look at, on average, 14 properties before they buy. Rest assured Harcourts will be staying in regular contact with all potential buyers for your property.
When a buyer has viewed several properties they often act quite quickly once they find a home that appeals to them the most. This can often lead to a keen buyer presenting an offer early to avoid ‘missing out’. We would recommend you consider any early offers seriously.
Buyers purchase with emotion rather than with logic. To enable Harcourts to encourage a potential buyer to take emotional ownership of your property, we recommend you are not present in the property during open homes. Rest assured we will maintain the security of your property and possessions at all times. Group viewing at open home times will allow you to prepare the property to be seen at its best.
Communication between you and the salesperson is essential throughout the selling process. The role of the salesperson is to be the messenger from the market and to report all feedback to you. In this way, when you get an offer on your property, you will be able to make an informed decision.
Contract of sale
The salesperson will follow any contract of sale through to settlement date, staying in communication with both the buyer and yourself. Be assured they will continue to market your property if the contract has conditions waiting to be met, for example “subject to finance approval?. Marketing for a buyer will only stop when the property is legally sold.
