Hi there!

I’m Karen

Welcome to my blog 🙂

As a former real estate agent I’ve spent over a decade listing and selling real estate in Bateau Bay.  I also called Bateau Bay home for several years. Here I share what makes Bateau Bay a fantastic place to live. You will also find lots of tips and information on buying and selling.

If you are planning a move to Bateau Bay you will find more here.

If you’re selling your home and moving away from Bateau Bay then you might be interested in tips on getting your house ready to sell. Maybe you want to know more about the process of selling a house.

I will be updating content regularly on my blog. Topics coming soon include the costs of selling a house, guidance on how to sell your own home privately, and before and after home staging, I will try to cover it all.

And for buyers wanting to make Bateau Bay home, did you know that the suburb was once ranked in the top ten most desirable suburbs of NSW by realestate.com.au?

Relocating to a new area is a big decision. To make sure you will love Bateau Bay as much as I do check out my article ‘Should you live in Bateau Bay‘. Perhaps one of the other suburbs in the 2261 postcode area might suit you better.

No matter your interests, there is a strong chance that you will find it all here. And if you can’t find it at Bateau, as it is affectionately known by the locals,  you won’t have to travel too far to get it. We are spoilt for shopping options, restaurants, beaches, schools and cafe’s.

Bateau Bay offers something for everyone. And if you’re looking to buy then the east verse west debate is a must-read.

Selling or Buying in Bateau Bay?

After more than a decade in real estate I have seen the good, bad, and ugly side of our industry.

I have seen great people get done over by dodgy agents. But what might surprise a lot of people outside of our industry is that I have seen just as many highly skilled, hardworking agents, fail to make commission month after month.

One of the reasons that this occurs is that often the good, honest agents lose business to unethical and unscrupulous agents.
The selling experience would be better for everyone, sellers, and agents, if everyone were honest. But that is very unlikely to ever happen.

The next best thing is for sellers to educate themselves as much as possible prior to choosing an agent.

Most sellers that I’ve met over the years put more time into researching a holiday than they do into choosing an agent. Think about it. Your agent will be representing you in the biggest transaction of your life. Isn’t that worth a few hours of your time?

My aim with this blog is to educate and inform you about the process of selling or buying so that you maximize your chances of a successful outcome.
