This fundamental cultural difference was so well received that the need for a second office location in Hobart was realised within less than 3 years of the Kingston office opening.

The Steps To A Successful Sale
First National Real Estate Hobart | Kingston strives to maximise the sale price of every home we market. We consult carefully with you on the approach to your sale and pride ourselves on getting the best results in the shortest possible time. Here’s how…
1. Accurate appraisal
We want to sell your property for the highest price, in the shortest possible time. This starts with a realistic comparative market analysis. Our agents have expert knowledge of property values and this is how we consistently achieve our anticipated price.
2. Method of Sale
We’ll explain the different methods of sale and help you choose what suits you best. Typically, options include Private Treaty (For Sale) or Auction but alternatives are available where applicable. We’ll also look at timing and any local events that could impact on the success of your campaign.
To maximise your sale price, we’ll discuss a range of marketing and advertising options that guarantee every possible buyer for your property is alerted to your sale. Our online marketing is optimised for mobile devices, exposure of your property takes place on major real estate websites, our eMagazine ‘national focus’ is distributed coast-to-coast, our social media amplifies audience, and you get the advantage of our exclusive, award-winning buyer alert database – Utopia.
We love making sure buyers see the full value of your property. To make sure this happens, we’ll make recommendations about a myriad of little things you can do to make sure your property is seen in its best light. You’ll be amazed what a difference we can make.
Once everything’s ready, we’ll start showing buyers through your home/property. Choose from ‘Open House Inspections’ or ‘Private Buyer Appointments’ and set times that are best to show your home.
After each inspection, we’ll keep you informed of our progress by reporting what prospective buyers thought. This helps ensure we’re on track and allows you to fine tune any presentation issues.
Offers will be received during your marketing campaign. This is where our negotiation skills make the difference. We’ll help you assess offers, make recommendations about how to optimise negotiations, and recommend when to sell.
Once you’ve accepted an offer, or the hammer has fallen at Auction, documentation will be signed by buyer and seller.
Some of our customers like to celebrate in the customary fashion at this point, so you might feel like opening that bottle of Champagne you’ve been keeping on ice!
10. Settlement Period
Settlement is typically around six weeks later but the length of time will have been set by your contract of sale, or re-negotiated during the sale process. During the settlement period, you begin packing up and planning for the final settlement or ‘moving day’.
