What Our Clients Often Ask...
You will need to engage a conveyancer or solicitor to prepare what is called your “contract for sale”. This information tells a buyer all they need to know about your house and the land it sits on, in order to make a decision as to whether to buy it.
This generally costs around $2000. Most conveyancers requesting only a few hundred dollars upfront to allow for all searches to be conducted to assist in preparing the contract.
With your agent you generally won’t need to pay anything upfront to them personally, you will pay your agent their commission once the property has been sold and settled. There may be an option to pay for a marketing package upfront to list your property for sale. Some of these can vary from $1000 – $5000 and can be discussed with your agent.
This is a question we get asked all the time and to be honest it is a tricky one to answer. When you trust an agent and take their advice completely, usually you will find that the house sells reasonably swiftly as it most likely has been marketed properly and priced to suit today’s market.
Sometimes home sellers are seeking a certain price or “magic number” regardless of where the house might sit in the current market. When Sellers adopt this method the result can be many months of time on the market, with sadly very little time actually in it!
Once a house sale has been signed by both vendor and buyer it generally takes 42 days to settle. This is a standard settlement. However, settlements can be negotiated to be shorter or longer depending on the vendor and buyer’s circumstances. Settlements are rarely shorter than 28 days and rarely longer than 90 days.
A common myth about real estate is that spring is the perfect time to sell. To be honest, Spring is just a lovely time of year- the weather is warming up and the gardens are in full bloom. While this makes the home look lovely, the market conditions can be at their strongest at any given time in the year! Quite often Springtime is when a lot of us put our home on the market and it can actually make selling more difficult as there is more supply for the demand.
Our answer is simply to sell when you feel you are ready to move!
This one is the most common question we get asked and the answer requires some listening first! We can always help find a solution to this question but it is only after a thorough review of your personal circumstances.
I think it is always preferred to know what you have in your wallet before spending it on a new home, but sometimes this isn’t always practical. Get in touch with us when you are thinking this question and we can take an x-ray of your situation and make a sensible strategy to move ahead with your plans!
Why we're your best mate in real estate...
I started out in real estate when I was 18, I had always held a passion for the industry and loved meeting and talking with people in my local area. I wanted to be able to provide people with probably the most sought-after item any person can want in their life, the great Australian dream, their own home!
I started as most do in real estate cold prospecting through phone calls and door knocking, often with very little return for the days work! however, I really enjoyed being able to build rapport and being able to connect with people, this enjoyment turned into a passion and thus lead me to where we are today.
I continued to train under some very prominent and well-known agents in the area and although I learned a lot, I also had a growing desire to do things differently, to be a little left of centre. So, in 2014, I decided that instead of being a good agent for someone else, I would start Murray Kennedy Real Estate and try to find the elements in real estate that most had lost sight of or hadn’t even thought of.
I opened the doors with a team of 4, and today we have an amazing team of 9. Our sales team consists of Myself, Jade, Hayley and Glen. The property management team with of Zoe, Kim and Casey. Our office manager Rebecca along with Trish help with just about everything and keep us sailing in the right direction. Each and every member shares a similar passion for helping people and really love going the extra mile for each and every one of our clients
So why do we call ourselves “Your best mate in real estate” No, it is not just a clever marketing tool. Like a true best mate, we are there to listen, provide guidance, have a laugh, and to support you. Selling and/or buying a house is statistically one of the most stressful things you can do and it is for this reason that we really enjoy our jobs!
With over 19 years of real estate experience under my belt, I hold claim to being a true local, I eat, breathe and sleep in the Macarthur region and I understand the in’s and out’s better than most. The Macarthur region has been exploding with opportunity, development, and has become a hub for young families and many amazing businesses, it is a gateway to the new aerotropolis and is central to both our nation’s capital and the CBD so it will continue to provide growth and stability for years to come. Needless to say, our local knowledge is next level and our team is hungry, not just to sell properties, however, to provide you with your dream home, your next investment, or the next item ticked off your bucket list.
Any real estate can buy and sell you a property, at Murray Kennedy Real Estate, we do things differently, and it’s not something we can tell you about, not because we don’t want to, rather, we want you to see it for yourself! Our previous clients say it better than we ever could. Sarah Hains said “Murray Kennedy literally found us our dream home. Murray invited us to an open house that we had not even seen online, we had completely overlooked it. If it was not for Murray, I would not be sitting in our new living room typing this review.” Sarah continued to say “Murray’s professional yet friendly and down to earth persona allowed us, two first home buyers, to feel relaxed with the overwhelming processes of looking for and buying a home.”
We could spend line after line telling you that we are awesome or better yet that we will get you thousands more in your sale, the truth is though we would rather let our reputation speak for itself! We are a young, energetic, passionate team and we will always go the extra mile, not just for you, but because we love what we do!
Unlike other agents, we “make time” for you!
The Team that drives the results!
Hi, I’m Murray, your neighborhood real estate aficionado! Since the tender age of 18, I’ve been immersed in the world of real estate, and guess what? I’ve never looked back. This area isn’t just where I work; it’s where I’ve built my life, my career, and my friendships.
For me, real estate isn’t just about buying and selling properties; it’s about connecting with people. I’m thrilled to say that many of the folks I’ve helped over the years have become lifelong friends. It’s not just a transaction; it’s a relationship. This truly is the best job in the world, and I wake up every day excited to do it all over again!
When I’m not playing matchmaker between people and properties, I’m a loving father, a mad Wests Tigers fanatic (Go Tigers!), and a true cricket tragic. Winter? You’ll find me on the hockey field in Narellan. Evening downtime? That’s when the guitar comes out, and I might even serenade you with a song or two (though I can’t promise it’ll be in tune!). And let’s not forget the BBQ – I’m a master of the grill, and I’m not afraid to prove it!
Ready to Make a Move? Whether you’re looking to buy, sell, or just chat about the local market, I’m here for you. With years of experience and a genuine love for what I do, I’m ready to help you make your real estate dreams come true. Give me a call, and let’s start this exciting journey together!
Joining Murray Kennedy Real Estate my aim was to make an immediate impact.
Over 3 decades of working, living and raising my family in the Macarthur I am well versed with the area. As a well-known educator across the district, who has had regular contact with families during this time, I have demonstrated to be a person of high integrity and professionalism – I am committed to selling and finding families a new homes with a personal touch.
As a seller and purchaser of over 20 homes, frequent feedback was something I valued. In turn, this is what you will receive when working with me – personal connection, up-to-date knowledge and honesty.
As an Estate Agent I remember that every transaction where a home is sold can have a corresponding requirement to purchase a new home for the seller. This can be a very stressful time and I ensure my role is to demystify the process reducing the stress. Communication is the key as I strive to get the best result possible for the client.
Hi, I’m Jade Terehia, and I’ve been Murray’s PA & running operations and sales for MKRE for the past three years. Before diving into real estate, I was a travel agent and marketer, but now I’m Murray’s go-to person for all things MKRE.
I’m also a proud mum of three, so I know a thing or two about multitasking. Balancing motherhood with managing operations and sales at MKRE is no small feat, but hey, someone’s got to do it! I know my way around a spreadsheet like nobody’s business. When I’m not working, actually, scrap that, Im always working!
Yes, I still know my way around a travel brochure, but these days, I’m more focused on helping you find the perfect destination right here at home
