Thank you for the opportunity to assist with selling your beloved property. After moving to the Sunshine Coast in 1984, I am confident I am the best agent to sell your property based on my 16 years selling experience in the local area and my 31 years local knowledge
I am the selling principal at PROPERTY ONE Sunshine Coast and have successfully sold more than $290 million worth of Sunshine Coast property
Please see below a sample of some of my recent property sales:
After previously working at the larger franchisers such as Ray White, LJ Hooker and Raine & Horne on the Sunshine Coast, I decided to open my own independent company allowing my clients to spend a minimal amount to secure a successful sale
The larger franchises on the Sunshine Coast I found demand sales staff convince clients the need to spend between $3,000 - $10,000 in promoting their property for sale in the local property papers, however my experience has proved that the majority of buyer inquiries actually come from the internet, and when using the best photos and descriptive wording, a sale can eventuate just as quickly with a budget under $500 as opposed to over $3,000
Of course there is a time to promote in the paper however with the strength of the local market at present and the major strength of affordable online advertising that reaches a greater market share of buyers must be considered for each property, from what I am asking buyers I am finding that paper advertising isn't reaching any new buyers
In today's strong selling market place, having the best photos to portray and advertising your property on the number one Australian property website, realestate.com.au, is proving to be the key. I can proudly inform you that my clients are indeed having success with selling on average within 45 days on the market, WITHOUT the need to a dollar on paper advertising!
And I am extremely confident I can have the same success for you regarding selling your property WITHOUT SPENDING ANY MARKETING DOLLARS IN THE PAPER!!
As every property is different, it is important to tailor an individual sales action plan for each property based on its unique features, location and merits.
In this current sales market, there are numerous ways to market a property for sale including - no price, offers over $, a buyers range, a fixed price, low-mid $, mid-high $ etc. From experience, if I was to meet with you and inspect your property, I can quite quickly offer you a few ideas on what marketing method would work best for your property and most importantly attract the highest amount of buyers resulting in the highest sales price.
As I have seen many times before, if the seller gets the price wrong within the first one - two weeks of being promoted on the internet, then buyers (who are all very well educated with all the information they can find on google) can simply see from the photos, listed price and location as to whether the property is fair value or overpriced. If they believe it is overpriced then the seller runs the risk of this buyer not even contacting the agent to book in an inspection and ask more questions
That is why it is so important, even more so today, to list with the right agent and have the right sale method from day one.
This is where I can assist you achieve the best sale price and attract the majority buyers to at least enquire and inspect your property once it is listed for sale
Once we have the buyer enquiry, then I can do my best with the negotiating side of things, in order to deliver you vital feedback and bring you offers for consideration/negotiation
“When we decided to sell our prior residence in Wurtulla, we considered a range of possible agents and after interviews, settled on Malcolm because of his local knowledge, enthusiasm and realistic approach. The property went on the internet on the Wednesday and we had a signed contract by Sunday morning at the market-value price. Throughout this extremely short selling cycle and right up to settlement, Malcolm stayed closely in touch and ensured all went smoothly. We were extremely impressed by his drive and attention to detail and his integrity and professionalism. We would not hesitate to recommend him to other sellers”
“Everything Malcolm Coote did for us was nothing short of exceptional. Without a doubt the most professional, dedicated and approachable person we have had the pleasure dealing with in the real estate industry”
“Over the years I have dealt with many Real Estate Agents but none as professional as Malcolm Coote. Malcolm's approach and commitment to his clients whether buying or selling is certainly an asset that is hard to come by in today's market. He readily offered professional advice that I could trust and importantly, 'listened to what I had to say'.”
