After interviewing four real estate agents, I was having trouble deciding which agent was genuine enough to not overprice the apartment or oversell me on marketing expenses, yet skilled enough to get me the highest sale price. It was a fine line.
I was moving overseas in about 6 weeks and had just spent the last year doing as much prep work as I could to my fairly modern apartment. I’d painted the walls, fixed the sliding doors, replaced a toilet, added new blinds, partially renovated the kitchen, removed the InSinkErator, sold or disposed of all clutter and purchased a few items of furniture and decor in an attempt to stage the apartment. All with the help of Bunnings, YouTube and Ikea.
