Whilst January usually has a slow start as everyone is coming back into their daily groove, the property market never stands still. This year is going to be promising for real estate, so kick start your property resolution goals by making sure your home has everything to host the ultimate Australia Day.

1. Swimming pool

This staple backyard piece is still one of the top items on the list for many buyers because what is Queensland summer without an opportunity to dip in the pool?

2. Space for your mates’ cars

Utilising your property’s space is one of the key things in preparing it for sale. Does your house have the space to fit more than one car? There’re many buyers out there looking for a driveway as it has major benefits like providing a safer pathway for the family or having space for the guests’ cars.

3. Outdoor kitchen

As part of living in the Sunshine State, we tend to spend a lot of time outdoors. That’s why a patio or an outdoor kitchen is a must for most buyers looking to indulge in the Queensland lifestyle. It would be a perfect opportunity to host a BBQ on Australia Day with mates or spend quality time with loved ones.

4. A place to cool down

To complement the point above, a patio can’t go without a big fan that will help cool everyone down. Also adding shade to your patio / outdoor kitchen will help to make sure the guests are sun safe.

5. Backyard space

When the backyard is spacious, opportunities for family fun and leisure are endless! Here’s what your potential buyers will picture in their heads: hosting a game of Cricket on Australia Day, putting up slip and slide, or inflating a pool if you don’t already have one.

How does your property compare to these items on the list? If you don’t have any of these, it’s time for an upgrade. It is always a good idea to check how your property is performing in the current market.
