Jason discussing how Wes arranged and paid for remedial work to achieve a higher price to sell NOT drop the price like other agents.

Jason discussing how Wes arranged and paid for remedial work to achieve a higher price to sell NOT drop the price like other agents.

Jason thought it was weird that Wes would want to lift the asking price of his property when they hadn’t received any firm offers to that date. Wes asked them to trust him as he had a strategy for why he felt it could work. Wes sold the property 3 weeks later. Wes said the interest in the property certainly increased in the new range which is why he is never afraid to lift an asking price when he knows he can justify its worth. 11 times in the last 3 years Wes has lifted the asking price on property and sold it for more. Often this occurs when Wes takes over a property from a failed campaign with another agent.

Jason telling it how it was using Wes to sell. Part 1of 2.

Jason telling it how it was using Wes to sell. Part 1of 2.

Here Jason speaks about how he had 5-7 agents in to appraise his property and why he decided to use Wes from Real Estate Geelong. He goes on to say how Wes’s Building and Construction background, property knowledge and experience made Wes a stand out against all other agents he interviewed. Jason said all real estate agents except Wes are like used car salesman looking for a pay day, their commission. Jason said virtually all of the agents talked down the home suggesting the kitchen, bathroom, ensuite and laundry need to be upgraded to achieve mid 500’s which was their goal.
Wes never talked down the property value at any time, didn’t focus on upgrading kitchen, bathroom, ensuite or laundry suggested by the other agents because mathematically spending that sort of money on a house this small would realise the return on investment without extending the home. Instead Wes set out to identify inexpensive ways of increasing the value of the home and taking attention away from other areas. Wes even increased the price of the home when he felt he wasn’t attracting the right buyer mindset and he never asks a vendor to lower their price expectation. He sold the property 3 weeks after increasing the price and sold if for 50k above Jason’s expectation.

Susan Jones shares her experience and how we achieved more for her property.

Here Susan shares her experience using Wes of Real Estate Geelong to sell her Herne Hill home. She talks about how the entire experience was 10 out 10 and she would only recommend Wes as her agent of choice. The entire process was stress free, easy and Wes exceeded Susan's expectations on price and service. Susan explains how there had been a fair number of people through but no one coming good with the right offer and so instead of lowering the price Wes suggested he would increase the price which he did and sold it in less than 3 weeks.
