Ray White Carnegie’s Matt Hurlston: Top tips for reducing stress at your auction sale

By Matt Hurlston

Selling your real estate in Bentleigh at auctioncan be a stressful experience, especially if it's your first time being on this end of the hammer. 

After all, you're putting your largest asset up on the market in the hopes that you'll at least be able to break even on your initial investment, if not earn a profit to help fund your future property purchase. This can make even the most calm person feel a little nervous, especially in a competitive metropolitan marketplace. 

However, there are a number of ways you can help calm your nerves and approach your auction day with a cool demeanour. For example, getting to know your real estate agent and auctioneer can instill a confidence that goes a long way towards dispelling fears. 

Ask them about their recent clearance rates and sales prices, as well as how long they've been in the business. Experienced individuals are great to have in your court, so be sure to find this out before the day. 

Furthermore, setting the right reserve price is a good way to encourage potential buyers to bid. Anything too high and they might be dissuaded, so take a look at recent sales prices in your community and work with these to set a suitable figure.
