JETNELSON

Presale Consultant

I'm passionate about helping owners maximise the sale price of their property. And, I'm independent of real estate agents, tradies, builders, & suppliers so I advocate for you to achieve the best possible outcome whilst ensuring you are not taken advantage of or misled throughout the process. 
If you are considering selling your home, a cosmetic renovation is the single most effective way to maximise your sale price.
Without a structured and purposeful refresh, buyers will look to offer the lowest they can rather than the opposite.

OUR SERVICE

A presale renovation will transform your home into a standout product leaving a lasting impression on buyers. It's at the renovation stage where the sale price is maximised (not the sale stage) as the property is transformed into a product that buyers will make an emotional connection with. We've developed a system to transform properties within 5-10 weeks, unlocking your property's potential to attract buyers willing to pay premium prices. Using our strict processes, we manage the entire design and renovation for you using professional insured trades making your property look its absolute best.

WHAT WE DO

  • Independent research into sales in your area

  • All planning to uplift the value of your property

  • Design for bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms

  • Engage and manage all professional insured trades

  • All project & budget management

  • Handle communication with neighbours

  • All painting, flooring, blinds electrical and plumbing

  • All tiles, fittings, vanities, mirrors, toilets, shower screens and bathtubs.

  • Gardens, fences, patios, and exterior painting

  • Check for quality and ensure any corrections are completed

  • Professional Staging

  • Handover to real estate agent (we can support you here also)

WHAT WE DON'T DO

Extending your home up or out is something we don’t do for presale, mainly due to the time and cost involved, so we focus on the existing areas to ensure they stand out in the right way and generate emotional excitement from potential buyers.
We also don’t add pools or granny flats though if there is potential for these, we’ll be sure to let your agent know to include this as a selling point.

Here are some examples of before and afters. In most cases, the real estate agent just wanted to get the property on the market and sell it as is. This would have guaranteed the owner a lower sale price and thankfully, we were able to prevent that.

STREET PRESENCE

This house was untouched for over 30 years. Broken roof tiles, rotting timbers with an overgrown garden. The time spent on planning and design paid off and paved the way for a tasteful transformation with a modern colour palette.

ART DECO APARTMENT LOUNGE

This loungeroom suffered years of smoke damage from the previous owner. The right design, planning and trades, transformed this unloved and dated loungeroom into a modern showpiece within weeks.

PAY ON SALE

With increasing inflation and interest rates, like many owners, you may not have the funds available for a presale renovation. We offer a "pay on sale" solution to qualified clients. If you qualify, we can discuss how your property can be renovated and sold with our fees paid only on sale. Your property will be transformed for you and sold at a maximised price without finance as a barrier to moving forward.
