28 September 2021 | Insights Team

Congratulations on choosing Leadhome Properties to “sell your home from as little as R24,995+VAT, when you sell and buy with us.” With the signing of a mandate, you have made the first important step towards selling your home. 

Property season is in full swing

Did you know that here at Leadhome Properties, we sell a home every five hours, 31% faster than other agencies? Of course, you did! That’s why you chose us in the first place. 

Based on our data, the highest number of properties are sold in South Africa from September to mid-December, after the dry Highveld and cold, wet Cape winters have ended. The summer months herald the peak annual property season, buyers and sellers abound and the property market heats up with the warmer weather. 

Unlocking potential equity

Whether you’re about to show your own home, or we are showing it for you, keep in mind there are many benefits and rewards from showing your home at its fullest potential. From achieving higher offers to maximising your property’s financial equity to accomplishing a faster sale, you can reap the financial rewards by considering our recommendations and suggestions below. Read how you can increase the value of your home here.

Stand out from the crowd

Online or in-person, an eye-catching property that stands out from the crowd tends to garner greater interest from buyers. First impressions last, so you should always show a home that is neat and tidy both inside and out and has attractive curb appeal. Re-think your home from a buyer’s perspective. Ensure it is clutter-free, sparkling clean to inspire buyers to “buy into the lifestyle” your home offers. Read how you can easily delight and surprise buyers here.

Create an emotional connection

Home is where the heart is. Help buyers fall in love with your property by implementing minor upgrades, rethinking your decor or paint. Read our handy home maintenance checklist here. 

Reimagine space

Are your buyers seeking a home office perhaps? A dining room with seating for twelve? Or a man-cave? No problem. Spell out your home’s infinite configuration potential by suggesting an alternative use of space. Read how best to design a home office here.
