You may be thinking, that now is not the right time to sell?

This is actually not true for the Adelaide Real Estate market!

Here's the evidence why....

Stable Market. Stable Growth.

Adelaide bucks the trend of house price deflation other states have experienced in recent months. We are still growing month on month with strong 12-month growth of 23.3% (as of August, 2022).

Now is a great time to sell, with Adelaide enjoying stable market conditions, we expect to see more interest from home buyers and investors from interstate markets turning their attention to Adelaide.

Investors are back!

Yes, the increasing interest rates have seen first home owners cautious. However, with the recent volatility in the share market, and upwards pressure on rents, healthy yields are seeing a flood of investors return to property.

You may be thinking, that it's an overwhelming process to sell.

On average, a property owner will sell a property once every 7 - 10 years, and this may be one of the biggest financial decisions you'll ever make in life - being cautious is understandable.

We’ve identified some common thoughts potential sellers have and how to move past worrying about them.

“Will my property sell?”

The idea of your home sitting on the market for an extended period is undoubtedly one that has crossed many sellers' minds at some point or another. The truth is for the right price, marketed to the right target audience, any property will sell.

“My property will need some work before selling.”

Presenting a property in its best possible condition is highly recommended. This could mean refreshing the property by painting, steam cleaning carpets, window cleaning, and general tidying or de-cluttering a space. You may also want to engage the professional services of a property stylist to help present your property for sale and increase your chances of achieving the best possible price.

Or is your property worth more as a development site and can it be sold just as it is? This is where the right real estate agent can assist you with preparing your property for sale to attract the right audience.

“How do I choose the right agent”

When it comes time to sell, you want the best possible price for your property. And the right number can mean the difference between you being delighted with a dream price . . . or stuck without enough funds to make your next move . . .

Smooth sale-ing starts with an accurate appraisal.

If an agent overvalues your property, with zealous enthusiasm to get your listing or by calculating the market past sales data wrong, listing your home for sale for a higher than market price can jeopardise your future goals.

Your home can stay on the market for too long – delaying your move, your settlement of cash, and the likelihood of receiving genuine offers. Plus, overvaluing in a hot market can cause a contract to fall apart when banks disagree with the assessment of the property's value.

Whether this is a concern for you or you’ve heard disappointing stories from others selling their home, one thing is certain – you want to have 100% confidence in your appraisal of sales value by a genuine agent.

Since the first step in a successful sale is getting an accurate appraisal to help set the listing price, you need a reliable valuation to best determine how your home or property stacks up against what else is available in your area.

And choosing an experienced Real Estate agent is key to getting it right.

What our clients say….

"Marco is polite, reliable and a great agent.

Looking forward to many more purchases & sales with Marco. Thanks again for all your hard work."


"The best real estate agency we have ever dealt with. Very Professional, experienced and helpful throughout every step of selling our home.

Highly recommended."


"We have used Agency Avenue Schinella's for the last couple of years, as they were the property managers for our unit. Tami did an excellent job and would not hesitate to use this company again if the need arises.

We also used Agency Avenue Schinella's to sell our unit. They did a fantastic job and communicated with us on every step. Would not hesitate to use them again.

We had used a couple of other well know real estate agencies prior to selling our unit and we were so disappointed as they did not care about us as customers. Using Schinella's, which is a family owned business was the best move for us. Very friendly and very professional, nothing was too much trouble.

Thanks again."


"Agency Avenue have sold three properties for us over the years, and their service, commitment and professionalism is something I cannot speak more highly of. We were always provided with expert guidance which allowed us to make informed decisions along the way, they gave us confidence in the process and took all the stresses away. Their communication was regular and always timely, and we were never kept guessing on the progress of our sale, or what next steps would be. It is hard to find people you can trust, and the Agency Avenue team have earnt our trust every step of the way and we cannot thank them enough for their services. Thank you DeArna, Damien, Pat and Marco and keep up the great work."
