Marketing Plan

With low stock levels, there is no doubt that selling a property in the current market is still viable. Properties are still selling and low stock levels mean selling methods that are flexible in their approach to the current restricted methods of selling do work.

Experience in selling in markets that are not the usual method has never been more important.

My 30 years in the industry has taught me how to manage to sell properties by thinking outside the square and ensuring that the right method of selling is applied, and this doesn't mean just continuing with auctions or a standard private sale.

It is important to remember that when there are fewer properties to choose from Buyers have to compete harder for one they like. Taking that into consideration requires a negotiated approach to marketing and ensuring that constant contact with Buyers is paramount and ensuring that competition between Buyers is maintained so that they are aware that they are not the only ones interested in purchasing.

It is also important to note that at this point in time there have never been fewer properties for sale in the Inner Eastern suburbs. As a result of this Buyers are becoming more and more frustrated from a lack of quality listings. That frustration is what drives low stock level markets and needs to be guided by an experienced agent who has strong negotiating skills.

With this shortage of stock, record low-interest rates, and buyers looking to establish themselves in a quality location close to private schools, transport, and amongst quality homes there is still the opportunity to sell. Think back 30 years ago and the circumstances that prevailed in 1991 with property prices dropping weekly, an inability to be able to finance with interest rates at a level of 13.5%, Mortgagee sales happening weekly, and a totally depressed market. No internet to promote properties all over the world and no mobile phones to be able to reach out to prospective buyers en-masse or even email. Those conditions were much harder than they are today.

Our strategy is to maximise your profit by utilising responsible advertising. This does not mean using your advertising dollar as a means to promote our business at the expense of your bottom line. We consult with you to determine what is the best form of advertising that will benefit the property.

Finally, as a Director of the business, I give my guarantee that I will be personally involved in the sale of your property from the start of the campaign right through to placing a SOLD sticker on the board at the conclusion.


To Whom It May Concern

Brett Philipp was recommended to me by a property agent as a person well equipped to sell my property in Burwood.
From my first contact with Brett he was professional and personable. He answered all of my questions along the way and handled each step of the sale in such a way that kept me completely in the loop. I achieved a result beyond that which I had expected and it was all done very efficiently and in a surprisingly short time frame. I have sold property previously, but this was the smoothest sale I can remember.

I have no hesitation in recommending Brett and his name has been passed along to family members who may be selling property in the near future.

We just wanted to write to say thank you for your professionalism in finding us tenants for our rental property in Surrey Hills when our previous agent failed over 7 weeks to deliver as they promised.

Your ability to find a tenant within 4 weeks was supported by your constant communication by always following up with a phone call after each inspection and keeping us updated each step of the way.

This was not something our previous agent was doing and it was a great relief knowing all along what was happening with our property.

We would highly recommend you to any prospective landlord as we appreciated all your hard work, commitment and advice in finding us suitable tenants for our apartment.

Many thanks again for all you hard work and efforts.

To Whom It May Concern

I am more than pleased to recommend Harcourts Select and in particular Brett Philipp, as a reputable and reliable Real Estate Agent.

Brett handled the delicate sale of my Parents deceased estate.

From our initial meeting to the day of auction, Brett did not deviate from our agreement, and in particular carried out the entire campaign pre sale as agreed and was always pleasant prompt and informative.

He also was entrusted in dealing with other family members and always carried himself in a professional manner.

Brett also carried out the auction and again I believe he was professional dealing with myself and my family and also the public who attended the auction.

Brett achieved a great result for our family and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is considering selling or require any advice in matters of real estate.

Kind Regards
