Marketing your Property
Some property owners think that selling or letting a property means simply advertising it and taking prospective buyers or tenants around to the house or apartment. There is much more to it than that. These are some of the questions which should come to mind when you decide, for example, to put your property up for sale:
- Which is the best way to attract buyers?
- How do I know how much to ask?
- Is my home ready for sale? Should I invest in any major improvements?
- How quickly can I sell?
- How should I go about showing the house?
- How do I know if the buyers are serious or even if they can afford my house?
- How can I be sure I am getting the best deal?
- How do I negotiate on the sale?
The risks incurred when placing your property on the market are various. You have to make sure that you do not over-price or under-price your property. Exposing your property to the market at the wrong market price would greatly delay its sale. Staff at Frank Salt Real Estate Ltd would know the prevailing market conditions at the time when you wish to place your property on the market and will be able to guide you and give you a realistic market valuation of your property. They will be able to advise you as to how you can make the property more saleable and attractive to potential buyers.
Our trained and experienced staff will also be able to advise you of the procedures and steps to take to ensure a smooth transfer, from the sale of your property to the purchase of another property. They will be able to deal with all the various aspects in concluding a satisfactory sale of your property.

Advertising on the Media
A substantial amount of our marketing budget goes towards advertising your property and our services on various media. These include local newspapers, magazines, radio stations and even television. Besides advertising locally, we also allocate advertising budget to marketing in overseas publications and newspapers.
These are used to form in-house catalogues for visiting clients and also form part of our office window displays in our 14 Branches. Our window displays are changed regularly in order to give as much exposure as possible to a large number of properties.
