It is no secret that when something is presented well it's generally more appealing. Sales agents that present themselves in a profession manner tend to have more successful sales. This also applies to homes that are presented in a stylish way. They always tend to sell faster and usually for a higher price. 

It is important when considering a sale to take off your owner glasses and look at the property through the eyes of a potential buyer.

When looking to sell your property we urge you to consider hiring a property stylist and take their feedback into account prior commencing a marketing campaign.

With the stock levels in the current market continuing to rise, there is more competition out there than ever before. It's then extremely important to ensure your property stands out from the rest.




Beautiful gardens will sell your home! Just like the icing on a cake, the gardens in your property can often be the final touch that gets a premium buyer across the line. Australians love outdoor entertaining and we often spend the majority of the weekend in our backyards.

Many overlook the gardens when preparing their property for sale. Often just a simple cleanup or a new planter bed can help transform your garden into an enjoyable entertaining space. Ask one of our friendly Sales Representatives for advice on how to help transform your outdoor space into an entertainer’s paradise.


Choose the right agent


Our homes are often the single most expensive investment we will ever own. That’s why it is so important to ensure that we maximize our return to help put us in front for our next acquisition.

It is critical to make sure you select the right agent who will not only represent your home in the best light, but also make sure that they are representing you, the seller. This will ensure the best possible outcome for your sale.

At Standen Estate Agents, all of our Sales Representatives receive ongoing training to ensure that they are always at the top of their game. In a seller’s market, securing a premium price can often be a quick and painless process. In a versatile or difficult market, the skill and negotiation experience of the agent can be the difference between an average figure and tens of thousands of dollars over the estimated sale price.

Attract the right buyer



Standen Estate Agents have your best interests at heart. We see no value in pointless advertising that is going to cost you money for very little return.

For example there is no point advertising in the paper if you are a two bedroom unit on the 5th floor with no lift. 

Other real estate agents are well known for spending their customers money in order to help boost their own profiles. Standen Estate Agents won't recommend any marketing mediums before considering the target audience we anticipate will be the core prospect on your property. 


Timing is everything


It is critical to think about the time of year you are looking at selling, especially when considering your method of sale and the intended length of your marketing campaign. For instance, Spring and Summer are traditionally quick and efficient selling times and we generally see the highest turn over for the year in these months. 

During these selling seasons we often see 4 week auction campaigns with many choosing to sell prior to auction with the added attraction of premium pre-auction offers. 

In Autumn and Winter, whilst we sometimes observe slightly longer days on market with less stock for buyers to choose from, we can often create more competition which results in a higher selling price for you.
