Selling Tips

Selling Your Home

Selling your home can be a very emotional experience. Your home is not just a residential dwelling – it’s an extension of who you are. The amount of effort you put into preparing your home for sale is crucial, as this will ultimately determine the price you negotiate and the overall experience that you have.

Choosing Your Agent

Once you’ve decided to sell your home, the first step is to seek the help of a qualified real estate agent. Choosing the right agent is also crucial in ensuring you get the best possible price for your home. A good agent will also work hard to take the hassle and stress out of what can be a challenging experience for all concerned.

Ask friends and family members for referrals, attend several open houses in your area and ring a potential agent’s past clients to find out how they performed. Real estate is an extremely competitive industry, so award-winning agents are certainly worth checking out. In the end, the agent you choose should be enthusiastic, possession excellent negotiation skills, have a proven track record in obtaining good results and have a thorough knowledge of your neighbourhood.

Preparing Your Home

First impressions count – no question. It’s important to display your home in the best possible condition, as this will help to achieve an excellent price. Try and look at your home through a stranger’s eyes – if you were looking to buy the property, what would you have objections or reservations about? Carry out minor repairs, de-clutter and clean from top to bottom, and be sure to banish any odours. Your agent will be able to assist you in presenting your home in the best possible light.

At Ee Real Estate our commitment is to help you sell your home at the highest possible price, within an agreed time frame and with the minimum of stress.

Buying Tips

Buying a home is an exciting, but potentially daunting, prospect. Enlisting the services of an experienced real estate agent helps take the stress and uncertainty out of the equation.

An agent can help you in the following ways:

  • Alert you of new listings that fit your criteria
  • Facilitate inspections of suitable properties
  • Provide you with relevant data and research
  • Assist with building inspections and home loans

At Ee Real Estate, you will receive the highest level of service, tailored to your individual requirements. Our proven track record ensures that we are well-versed in all the procedures of property purchase and can guide you through what might be the most important financial decision of your life.

“We are never going to use anyone else to sell our property! We had been following you for about a year and it was just our luck that we had met you prior when we purchased the property in 2005. We do not like “big” Business.  We prefer the more personal approach and someone who works with their clients. Your service and that of your staff is exemplary. Thank you Thank you Thank you.”

“Ee and Aurelie at Ee Real Estate are amazing. I have known Ee for many years and she has successfully sold two Inner West properties for me, achieving well over market expectations on both occasions. Ee Real Estate currently manages two rental properties for me; one in Wolli Creek and the other in Potts Point. I am thoroughly impressed with her Team’s efficiency and care when it comes to finding new tenants (my Wolli Creek tenant gave notice last Thursday, Ee advertised the apartment and showed it to prospective tenants on the following Saturday and had a new tenant signed up with deposit taken today, Tuesday). Ee is a great judge of character and provided a full run-down on all applicants, who she preferred and why. Plus, the property will only be vacant (in-between tenants) for two days! Please consider Ee and her team for your Real estate needs – you won’t be disappointed.”

“It is easy as this – if you want a professional real estate agent that will sell your house for a great price and not lie to you or run your house down, then you need Ee on the job. She has just delivered a great result for me on a house in Newtown. But she handled the process like the professional that she is.”

Having recently sold my home with Ee Real Estate I cannot recommend them more highly. The level of service proceeding, throughout and post-sale was impeccable on every level. Poh-Ling (Ee) has incredible knowledge of the real estate industry; she is honest and punctual with the highest standards of professionalism. Ee Real Estate is both a rarity and a standout in the industry. There are not enough superlatives to describe the quality of service they provide. If I could rate them out of 10, I would rate them above.

Ee Real Estate deserves my highest praise and recommendation for the professionalism and skill demonstrated in the marketing and sale of my home in Newtown in November 2013. Ee, Ken and Mark provided superb support and guidance in every aspect of the campaign and achieved a much better result than I had anticipated. I first met Ee when, as top sales representative for a national agency, she acted as vendor’s agent when I purchased the Newtown property. Ee’s integrity, engaging personality and genuine helpfulness generates good will with those she deals with and led me to recommend her to friends and then 8 years later to seek her out and retain her to act on my behalf.

Ee has great understanding of the real estate market in Sydney and surrounding areas and knows the level and type of marketing that will achieve the best results without unnecessary cost. She also has superb taste, telling me what to display and what to put away, so I didn’t need to consult a stylist to present the property at its best. Ee Real Estate terms of agency are also highly competitive. Ee and her team are prepared to go the extra mile for their clients and will make themselves available for early morning building or valuation inspections, or after-hours property inspections, if that is required. Ee is a natural at building relationships and is happy to help you after long the sale is completed; in my case, Ee helped me to secure short term rental accommodation while looking to purchase property in the Blue Mountains.

We are so pleased that we engaged Ee to sell our home. We had lived in our home for 17 years and it was a very hard decision to sell. We kept contacting Ee over the years prior to deciding to sell and changed our minds several times. She was very patient with us and kept us informed about the property market.

She and her team, Mark and Ken, worked tirelessly during the sales campaign. We secured a price that was above our original expectations. With Ee, we didn’t feel like clients but old friends.

After the auction, Ee did not forget us but went out of her way and well beyond the call of duty to help us with the purchase of a new home. We came to appreciate what a skilled agent she is and the sound knowledge she has about the inner west. She came to every open inspection that we went to and offered us really good advice about the property. She didn’t have to do this. Eventually, she played a crucial role in the purchase of our new home, even coming to the signing of the contract.

As our solicitor said to us, “Ee is a straight shooter.” We found her to be uncannily accurate about the true value of a property. She closely monitors the property market in the area and has a good rapport with other agents who respect her experience. It is not surprising that she is regularly called upon by journalists for commentary about the state of the property market in the inner west.

Every other person we know who engaged Ee as their agent speaks highly of her devotion to the task and how fortunate they were to have her as their agent. We would highly recommend Ee to anyone wishing sell and/or buy their home.

My family engaged Poh Ling Ee to sell our late father’s home in 2013. It was a difficult time for us but Ee was excellent. We are extremely happy with the service and the results of the sale. Ee provided us with an amazing service. She is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. Ee knows real estate and the Inner West like no one else. She lives and breathes real estate. She will give you fantastic advise. Not only is she a great real estate agent, she is a lovely person as well. Ee is patient, kind, strong and fierce, all at the same time! Ee puts her clients as her highest priority. She will get you the best results, and nothing is too much trouble for her. If you ever need an agent, I highly recommend Ee and her excellent team. Poh Ling Ee is the best.


July 2013

Ee’s professional integrity was a factor in my decision to buying my first Sydney property, which was a terrace in Alexandria listed with Ee. Having missed out on three previous properties, I had pretty much given up my dream of owning my own home as I had previously been disappointed with being out bid at auction so was out of pocket after commissioning building inspections / searches.

Ee provided realistic guidance on price range which enabled me to organize my finances and bidding strategy. I was so impressed with Ee that I automatically went straight to her when I decided to sell my home. I set the reserve at a premium thinking that it was an aspirational target, which I would probably have to revise downwards at auction, but Ee delivered an auction sale outcome that surpassed my expectations by almost 10% above reserve.

Ee’s after sales service was also exceptional – she followed up with the lawyers on both sides to ensure that settlement was completed on time. Ee has also worked hard to help me find a new home even though the properties were not listed with her.

I would highly recommend Ee as she treats both buyers and sellers with respect and provides a service from her heart.
