Preparing your property for market

Renovation Matters are the local experts when it comes to preparing your property for sale in Canberra. We conduct a careful inspection of your property to assess its “uplift” potential. We only suggest renovation ideas that add immediate value and don’t overcapitalise your property.

Care of your property until settlement

If you require, we can water, mow, weed and clean your property ready for pre-settlement inspection.

Then we can style your property in preparation for your open home.

The Process

Step 1 – Meet and Greet
This is a free, no obligation chat about what success looks like for you. This allows us to evaluate how to best serve you while you can assess if you feel we are a good fit for you. We can also talk through options for funding your renovation if required. Following our meet and greet, we’ll move to the next stage of assessing your renovating needs so you can list your property for sale in Canberra.
Step 2 – Property Assessment
We’ll examine your property and provide a current independent valuation. This examination also enables us to assess the potential “uplift” a renovation would achieve. As home renovation specialists in Canberra, we will only suggest renovation ideas that add immediate value to your Canberra home.
Step 3 – Business Proposal
After we’ve assessed your property, we’ll prepare an initial proposal for your consideration. This proposal will outline our findings, recommendations, services, estimated costs and an anticipated sale price (based on local real estate data). If you’re happy with this initial proposal, we’ll organise final costs by following up with all of our trades and providing a formal tailored renovation plan.
Step 4 – Agreement
If you’re happy with our renovation plan, we’ll send you the contracts to sign. At this stage, we advise you to get independent legal advice from a solicitor or suitably qualified business advisor. Renovation Matters prides itself on being ethical and transparent.
Step 5 – Renovation
This is the fun and exciting part! We get to work to transform your home and unlock its true value (if selling), or to achieve your desired outcome (if staying). We use only proven and experienced service providers and trusted tradespeople who are competitively priced. We manage the renovation and transformation of your Canberra home in its entirety. Whether you are seeking to successfully sell your property in Canberra, or looking to renovate to stay or re-tenant, our residential property preparation service is perfect for all homeowners and can provide all the assistance you need.
Step 6 – Finishing Touches
Once the actual renovation is completed, we’ll apply the finishing touches to your home, including professional cleaning and property styling – to ensure your home has the WOW factor when hitting the market. As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression.
Step 7 – Property Listing
When we’re satisfied with the final makeover, we’ll help you list your property for sale with a real estate agent in Canberra. One of our core principles is that we work only with reputable local real estate agents to market and sell your property. The agents we work with provide great customer service and help you achieve the best sale price.
Step 8 – Settlement and Celebration
Once your home has settled, we’ll recover the renovation costs and our fee at settlement. This is also the time to open the champagne and celebrate the sale of your property. Preparing a property for sale in Canberra can be straightforward – just let Renovation Matters do all the work for you!
