It’s hard to believe that spring is almost upon us, but now’s the time to start thinking about preparing for a sale to take advantage of a pretty unique selling market that we’re experiencing right now. While we’ve recently seen the highest auction clearance rates in almost two years, stock levels are at an all-time low. This perfect little storm has created a great opportunity for would-be vendors to capitalise on the considerable pent-up competition in the marketplace, tapping into the large pool of eager buyers who’ve been starved of options. However, we don’t know how long this market momentum will last, so it’s time to get the ball rolling if you’re contemplating selling.



The Inner West is experiencing particularly strong demand at the moment, with auction clearance rates rising significantly. In fact, in recent weeks the Inner West clearance rate climbed as high as 92% compared to a Sydneywide rate of 73%, highlighting the popularity of our local property.



Spring is always a peak time of the year for listing and it will be here before you know it, so it will pay to get moving to ensure you’re not underprepared and don’t leave it too late. The uncertainty around just how long it takes to prepare a home for sale can often be a deterrent but at Cobden & Hayson we’re here to help and can get you moving quicker than you may have imagined. Would you believe we can have your property ready for market in less than two weeks? We’re talking repairs and maintenance, interior styling, garden overhauls and marketing. And most importantly we can get it done cost effectively with minimal effort on your part. We really do take care of everything.



This all comes down to our relationships with the best people in the business. Local buyers are still by far our biggest purchasing pool, so it pays to work with tradespeople, stylist and the like who truly understand the buying demographic and what they look for in a property. Standing out is really important and we know how to play up the unique selling features of your home in order to create that vital emotional connection, allowing people to envisage exactly what it would be like to live in your home.



Now’s a prudent time to really trust your agent, invest in the wisdom they can impart and have confidence in their ability to take advantage of a changing market. As the peninsula’s leading sales team we know exactly how to leverage this particular climate, get your property looking its very best and achieve maximum traction in the marketplace.


There is 1 month until Spring… is it time to make your next move?
