At Calibre Real Estate we aim to support sellers achieve the best price for their home. 

Here we offer up some practical tips to help you maximise the profit on your home sale.

Set your goals

To sell your home for the most money, it’s best to understand local trends in your market, the total cost involved when selling a home and the best method for your requirements.

The highest offer won’t always leave you with the most money and you won’t always recoup the costs of renovations if they haven’t been well thought out.

When putting your goals together, here is what you need to consider:

Property Value – by using tools such as and you’ll be able to gauge a feel for what prices similar properties are going for. Having a property appraisal carried out by a trusted agent is the most accurate way to determine your property value

Associated costs – work out the costs involved in selling your home. These include things like conveyancing costs and estate agent fees so it’s important these are taking taken into account when calculating your bottom line

Method of sale – look at the pros and cons of the different methods of sale, including auction and private. Depending on what you’re looking to achieve, choosing the right method is a good way to stay on track

Do your calculations sooner rather than later and figure out what your goals are. That way you can have a realistic sense of what profit you can look to make from your property.

Enticing Entrances

A picture frame has the power to present a picture as an enchanting piece of art, or not.

Think of the entrance to your home like a picture frame.

From the moment the potential buyer enters into the vicinity of your home, they will make a judgement.

You want them to have an unforgettable first impression, for all the right reasons.

Have a wander outside and pay attention to the little details that you may take for granted each day. Make a list and get to work touching up where necessary.
Here are a few places to begin:

  • Mow the lawn
  • Mulch the flower beds and add a few new shrubs if necessary
  • Jet wash the driveway
  • Soft wash the outside of the house
  • Give the fence a fresh lick of paint
  • Add some character to your garden with a few planting pots

    Prepping the outside of your home is a sure-fire way to grab your buyers interest before they even step inside.

Set the mood with lighting

Lighting offers much more than a practical purpose. It is a very effective way to set the mood for your potential buyer, from the moment they enter your home.

A good place to start is by making sure all the light bulbs you have already are working. If not, replace them.

Then, have a think about areas of your home that could do with a little enhancement. For example, are there corners starved of natural light? You can bring them to life with a simple floor lamp! Or, is there a neutral space looking a bit drab? If so, a statement light fitting could be exactly what you need.


In order to provide yourself with the highest chance of sale, you should present your home in the best way.

This may sound pretty obvious, but it’s important you start with clearing away clutter. Messy spaces are distracting and can make a home feel smaller.

Having too much stuff can affect how a potential buyer perceives the property. Don’t let your belongings cloud their judgement.
Start by ridding the cabinet tops of junk, boxing away shoes and toys.

By clearing away excess stuff, you are presenting the potential buyer with a blank canvas that they can make their own from the moment they enter.

Make it about them

It is important that the potential buyer develops a personal and emotional connection to the property.

You want them to be walking from room to room imagining themselves living there.
There are a few ways you can encourage that.

  • Aim to make the space feel as neutral as possible
  • Keep the personal displays to a minimum
  • Make yourself scarce

By doing these things you can allow the potential buyer opportunity to enjoy your home as if it already belongs to them.
