Selling isn’t as simple as having people look at your house and hoping that they like it enough to make you an offer you can’t refuse. Traditional ways to sell a home don’t always work for everyone.
Before choosing how you’re going to sell your home, you need to be realistic about the type of property you have and its existing condition.
Successful selling is about more than just posting your home ‘For Sale’. Have you thought about how you’re going to present your property to potential buyers? When it comes to selling a home, first impressions are everything.
This means that you might have to put some extra work in to make your property appealing to buyers. But, how far are you willing to go? And, are you willing to invest a little and maybe achieve a better price?
In episode three of the Move iQ podcast, Phil Spencer and co-host, Chris Ducker discuss the subtle side of selling, how certain decisions can impact the buyer’s behaviour, and why some properties are best sold ‘as seen’.
Why should you listen?
- How to balance personal touches with presenting a blank slate
- Why it’s so important to capture the feeling of your house
- How to reduce friction in buyers’ minds
- What (if any) kind of changes you should consider for different types of property
- Why you aren’t just selling a home, you’re selling an opportunity and an idea

Before you start questioning the colour of your walls and how to get the ‘dog smell’ out of your living room, are you sure you’ve got the right valuation for your property? Have you considered the local crime rate or what the nearest school is like? Phil Spencer’s property report can help you.
