Step 1.  Listing Your Property

Kim Bevan will inspect the property and compare its features (land size, bedrooms, etc) with homes in the area that have recently sold, and their sale prices. This will give Kim a good idea on what your property would sell for in today’s market. With you Kim will decide on a suitable listing price. Some paperwork will be completed to grant Kim the permission to sell your home on your behalf.  Kim will then organise photos to be taken, and the advertising will be arranged.

Step 2.  Advertising Your Property

Kim Bevan will advertise your home including a professional photography package for all exclusive listings, newspaper advertising, internet advertising on all the major real estate websites, such as, as well as many more. Kim will also send out email broadcasts, localised "Just Listed" flyer distribution and a three-photo display card in the office window.

Step 3.  Inspections

As a result from advertising there will be a number of enquiries, Kim will qualify these and will find out who the true potential buyers are.  If your property is for investment purposes and you have tenants in place, Kim will give them 24hours notice before an inspection. If you are selling the home that you live in yourself, Kim will give you a call to see what time suits you, and show the potential buyers through, highlighting the features of your property. After every inspection Kim will give you a call and let you know how it went, keeping you up to date.

Step 4.  Signing The Contract

As soon as Kim Bevan gets an offer that you are happy with, it will be put on paper (the buyer will sign) and a deposit will be made by the purchaser. If you are happy with the purchase price and conditions of the contract, you will sign/initial where required and then the contract has been signed off by all parties.  As soon as the contract has been dated, your property has gone Under Contract.

Step 5.  Under Contract

The buyer has a cooling off period of 5 business days where they can terminate the contract for any reason. If this happens, the seller must refund the deposit within 14 days of termination of the contract, but may deduct a termination penalty equal to 0.25% of the purchase price. Most contracts are conditional upon the buyers securing finance and being satisfied with a pest & building inspection.

Step 6.  Unconditional

This is when all conditions on the contract have been met and all parties are satisfied. Breathe a sigh of relief because it’s all over – now you’re just waiting for the solicitors to carry out the searches and change title documents. Now is the best time to start packing – you know the contract won’t fall through.

Step 7.  Settlement

The solicitors from both parties will meet and agree that your property has been sold to the buyer and all the paperwork has been organised to change the title etc. Your solicitor will receive the money from the buyer and then it's all over: you can expect your cheque very soon!
