"Price! Price! Price!" equals the importance of "Location! Location! Location!" when buying or selling a dream home. When marketed at the right price, sellers could expect offers from motivated buyers at a price equal to or close to the asking price, given the prevailing real estate market.

Is an offer equal to or close to asking price possible in the current market?

If your property is situated in Woodland Hills Wildlife Estate, Bloemfontein, it is indeed possible to receive an offer equal to or close to the asking price - even in the midst of a very tough market.  The following conditions apply:

  1. The asking price must reflect the current market.  A market opinion by a Property Practitioner who understands the real estate market in Woodland Hills, will consider recent sales of comparable properties, in relation to comparable properties offered for sale; and in context of the prevailing market.  This approach to pricing the property will ensure that the asking price is market related.
  2. The property (including the garden, interior and exterior) must be in mint condition; ready for the buyer to move in.  Properties that show signs of neglect are penalised by buyers and low offers are the result.  Keeping a property well-maintained will greatly benefit the seller.
  3. The Property Practitioner whom you appoint to market your home, must be knowledgable in the area.  Market knowledge and an understanding of the lifestyle and management of the estate, impact the Practitioner's ability to motivate a buyer to invest in the Estate and to put in a reasonable offer on your home.
