When you sell a Strata Title Property, you are not selling a regular property

You are selling one piece in a larger Body Corporate with its own rules, regulations, and expectations. As the seller of the Strata Title property, you must keep in mind several important factors to ensure a successful sale. To ensure you get the best price when you sell, read our expert advice for selling your strata title property in Queensland.

Contract of Sale

The contract of sale for a strata title is completely different than for a house. Using the wrong format will void the contract completely. There are important disclosure requirements when you sell a strata title property. Failure to include the body corporate disclosure statement and other important documents will put your sale in jeopardy. 

As part of your contract you must include: 

How much is my strata title property worth right now?

Want to know the market value or potential rental income for your strata title property?

Fincancial benefits of shared ownership 

When selling your strata title property, your marketing should emphasize the financial benefits of owning a strata title property.

In your marketing material, you should seek to tell prospective buyers that with a strata title they will benefit from:  

Asking buyers to share in the ownership of a larger property rather than have singular ownership over a house can sometimes be difficult.

By communicating the benefits of owning a strata title property, you can win over potential skeptics and have more potential buyers.

Use Detailed Reporting to Your Advantage

Before you sell, make sure that you collect and provide detailed reports on the finance and operation of your body corporate.

A prospective buyer will not want to get involved in a body corporate that mismanages finances and wastes money. If there is not enough money in the sinking fund, each owner will be hit with a special levy to fund common property maintenance and works.

Providing a copy of the most recent body corporate budget and annual report will reassure prospective buyers that there are sufficient funds in the sinking fund and body corporate budget to pay for future expenses.

By-Laws

Provide a copy of all relevant by-laws to be observed by the buyer. Most by-laws across Queensland strata titles are quite similar. 

These by-laws govern things such as:

Make sure these by-laws are communicated to a potential buyer.

Emphasise Strata Property's Features 

Modern strata title properties will usually have communal features and benefits that will increase the saleability of your strata title property. 

These include such as:

As well as this, the location of the property is an essential selling point as well. Highlighting nearby ammenities such as public transport hubs, shops, schools, childcare centres, doctors, playgrounds, and parks can be a major selling point for potential buyers.

By emphasising these features, you are get more potential buyers and a higher selling price.
