What is the process of selling a property, from listing to closing on the Gold Coast?

Here’s an overview of the process of selling a property on the Gold Coast, from listing to closing:

1. Preparing your property: Clean and tidy your property to make it more attractive to potential buyers. Consider making any necessary repairs or improvements to increase the value of the property.

2. Choose a Real Estate Agent: Choose a reputable estate agent with local market knowledge and experience. Your agent will advise you on pricing, marketing and the overall sales process.

3. Set the listing price: Work with your agent to set a competitive and realistic listing price based on market analysis.

4. Marketing your property: Your agent will create a marketing plan that includes professional photography, listing on various real estate websites and possibly open houses.

5. Receive offers: Interested buyers will make offers to your agent. You and your agent will review and negotiate the offers to ensure you get the best deal.

6. Accept an offer: Once you’ve accepted an offer, both parties sign a sales contract. The buyer will be required to pay a deposit, typically 10% of the purchase price, which is held in the Real Estate Agency’s trust account.

7. Conveyancing and due diligence: The buyer’s conveyancer or solicitor will carry out searches and due diligence on the property. They may need to provide information about the title, zoning and any charges on the property.

8. Building and Pest Inspections: The buyer may arrange for building and pest inspections to identify any problems with the property.

9. Contract of Sale and Cooling off Period: The buyer has a cooling off period (usually five business days) to cancel the contract without penalty. However, this period can vary and there are conditions that must be met.

10. Exchange of contracts: After due diligence and inspections, both parties sign the contract of sale. The contracts are exchanged and the buyer pays part of the purchase price (usually 10%).

11. Settlement: The settlement date is agreed in the contract and is usually 30 to 90 days after the exchange. On the settlement date, the balance of the purchase price is paid to you and the buyer takes possession of the property.

12. Taking possession: The buyer takes possession of the property and you should leave the property empty and in the agreed condition.

13. Settlement statement: Your solicitor or conveyancer will provide you with a statement detailing the costs and proceeds of the sale.

14. Completion of Settlement: The settlement is completed and you receive the proceeds of the sale minus any outstanding costs.

15. Notifying relevant parties: Notifying the utility companies, local council and other relevant parties of the change of ownership.

16. Post-Sale Considerations: You may have to pay Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on the sale, but there are exemptions and reliefs available. Consider how you’d like to use the proceeds, such as reinvesting or using the funds for other purposes.

It’s important to work closely with your solicitor or conveyancer at every stage of the process to ensure a smooth and successful sale of your Gold Coast property.
