House prices are rising for the first time in years – here’s how to take advantage
It’s official: national property prices are on the uptick for the first time in two years.
While it’s a modest growth of 0.1%, this signals good news for real estate agents who have long had the housing slump on their shoulders. The Commonwealth Bank even forecasts a lift of 2% by the end of 2019 in two of our trickiest markets: Sydney and Melbourne.
While property trends are positive, it would be remiss not to look at ways to take advantage with your real estate strategy. Here are just a few things to consider in the coming months, and how proptech can help you reach your goals.
Now is the time to make sure your real estate proposals are on point. The formatting should be clean, modern and eye-catching, set out with photos, recent data, case studies and a clear sales strategy and timeline. Because most of us don’t have the advantage of a graphic design degree or a time machine, Proply is here to help. The world’s first web-based proposal app includes six customisable themes, and you can even create your own template from your proposals and case studies. You can now create a beautiful interactive proposal in minutes (and it’s free to try).
Waste not, want not
Time is your most valuable resource, so make the most of it. In this world of instant gratification, there’s no space for bulky paperwork and slow-paced business. The Proply online Accept button puts the customer in the driver’s seat, making it possible for them to accept your proposal anywhere, from any device. You’ll also be notified instantly, so you don’t have to waste a minute waiting around.
The numbers game
We get excited by upturns in the housing market and so do prospective home sellers. At no extra cost, Proply is deeply integrated with Domain PriceFinder, making it easy for you to populate your real estate proposal with the latest property sales and data. You can even search specific addresses to find a similar sale within Proply, because we all know numbers talk, right?
The future is now
A whopping 89% of real estate decision-makers agree that traditional real estate needs to engage with proptech. With billions poured into startups helping to future-proof the real estate industry, it’s time to get onboard with industry innovations (or risk being left behind).
