Choosing Your Consultant

What is the role of a property consultant?

The role of a property consultant is to sell your property at the highest negotiated price the market will pay within your time frame.

It is not the role of a consultant to tell you what they think your property is ‘worth’. There is no ‘exact value’ for your property in any market. Value is relative to the purchaser, and is dependent on demand and competition. Therefore, the market itself determines value.

Accordingly the best consultant will be able to  help you choose the best sale process to maximise your sale price. They will also be able to effectively market your property above its competing properties. Finally, they will be able to negotiate the highest price that a purchaser will pay within your time frame to sell.
