Avoid myth un­der­stand­ings by know­ing the mar­ket

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

WITH the spring sell­ing sea­son now upon us, Sell­ing Homes Aus­tralia host and prop­erty ad­vo­cate An­drew Win­ter says there are many myths about the prop­erty mar­ket that make it even harder to wade through the process.

He reck­ons one of the best ways to come through the sell­ing process un­scathed is to seek pro­fes­sional ad­vice.

He says many sell­ers thought they didn’t need a real es­tate agent and could do it all them­selves.

‘‘I was a real es­tate agent for nearly 25 years; nev­er­the­less, when I sold our fam­ily home a few years ago, I used an agent,’’ he says.

‘‘The main mo­ti­va­tion was be­cause I wanted a third party to ne­go­ti­ate on my be­half. The ne­go­ti­a­tions are the cru­cial bit that you absolutely have to get right.’’
