Increase in Gold Coast distress real estate listings sees homeowners using every advantage to sell homes quickly

Mudgeeraba, QLD – July 13, 2020 – Australia’s Gold Coast, long a favourite with interstate and international tourist, is suffering a significant slowdown as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic. With fewer tourist coming to the area and cancellation of most AirBnB and short-term holiday rentals, many property owners are keen to sell their investment properties. The increase in the number of properties on the market and a slow down in the number of real estate transactions taking place is seeing property owners having to make an extra effort to make their home’s curb appeal shine through.

“We know that the homes that sell the quickest are those that have the best curb appeal,” explains Ben Lignos, owner of Pressure Cleaning Gold Coast. “Homes, especially holiday homes that look well kept, neat, tidy and clean, are the ones that buyers clamour for. It’s why we’ve seen an uptick in the number of clients looking for our pressure cleaning services. Even well cared for homes benefit from the high-pressure cleaning that our highly trained staff and equipment can provide. We have high humidity here on the Gold Coast of between 50-70%. Combined with warm weather, we have ideal conditions for the growth of algae, mould, mildew, and general grime on home exteriors, roofs, sidewalks and driveways. Those are all things that detract from the look and curb appeal of a home.

During the lockdown, many homeowners took advantage of the extra time on their hands to tackle home improvement and renovation projects. While renovations improve the value of the home’s interior, studies have shown that renovations and modernizations won’t overcome poor exterior curb appeal. In his many years in business, Lignos has seen houses that didn’t sell for months bring in offers shortly after the home’s exterior and driveway were pressure cleaned, bringing out the original colour and condition of the house.

Another popular recreation and renovation project amongst Australians during the COVID-19 lockdown has been gardening and backyard improvement.

“There are some beautiful plants and flowers that have been invested in around the Gold Coast, but people have forgotten about the pavers or the walkways in those gardens,” explains Lignos. “Homeowners can’t scrub pavers or stones clean with the garden hose they have at home; it takes the high pressure of a power washer to bring pavers back to life. Clients can be concerned about their new and established plants around our power washing equipment, but it’s perfectly safe. We use only environmentally friendly products and our staff are specially trained to safely clean while avoiding any damage to plants. Clients are amazed at how their new plants really pop once the pavers have been cleaned. The transformations can be dramatic. They’re amazed at how something so simple, something that has nothing to do with gardening, can bring out the beauty of their garden. Every little bit helps to get a home sold. Power washing is one of the most cost-effective and easy ways for homeowners to get dramatic results and improve the odds of selling their home.”
