Frequently Asked Questions


Thinking about selling, but I don’t know where to start?
Selling your apartment can be a daunting task. You are ready to move on from something you have invested time and money into, but don’t know where to start. The best place to start is by literally contacting a real estate agent, like us at Amazing Apartments. We have many years of experience and can guide you through the process with ease.

How long does it take to sell an apartment?
Time on the market can vary, depending on the current state of the property market and how much interest is out there at the time. Determining factors that regularly affect “time on market” are the price, position, presentation, location of the apartment, and whether the apartment has a secure lease or is available with vacant possession.

What is the best way to sell an apartment?
Selling an apartment is different from selling a house because you are catering to a more defined target market. We are connected with many of that market already and understand their likes, dislikes and trigger points. The best way to get started is to contact experts in apartment sales, such as Amazing Apartments.

Can you help me prepare my apartment for sale?
Of course! This is our expertise and we know what works and what doesn’t. Contact Us today to get the ball rolling.

Do I need professional photography?
In short, Yes. A professional photographer knows how to make your apartment visually appealing both online and on paper, making it easier to get people through the door for an inspection.

Why is it best to use an agent to sell my apartment?
It is best to use an agent because this is our field of expertise. You wouldn’t try to replace your water pipes yourself; you would use a licensed plumber. So why try to sell your apartment yourself. Use the experts at Amazing Apartments.

Do you only sell apartments?
Yes. At Amazing Apartments, we focus solely on apartment sales, making us experts in the field.

Do I have to do open homes?
You don’t have to, but it is advised. The more people you have physically view your apartment, the more chance you have at getting a sale at your asking price (or even more). We also work with sellers who only want us to do private inspections, and that is ok as well.

What price ranges do you focus on?
At Amazing Apartments, we focus on all price ranges. We are skilled in selling boutique studio apartments, to penthouses in Brisbane CBD.

I’m not interested in auctions, can you still help me?
Of course! Contact Us today to talk to one of the expert agents and see how we can help you.

Do I have to pay for advertising?
The term: ‘you get what you pay for’ rings true when it comes to advertising and marketing costs for your apartment sale – if an agent offers ‘free advertising’ it will be of a very poor standard and will not cut through to your best buyers. Instead of thinking of advertising as a cost, think of it as an investment in ensuring that your property is shared with the most qualified and interested buyers in the market. We work tirelessly to ensure that the marketing dollars we spend on your behalf are the most cost-effective and targeted they can be to give you the best possible return on your investment.


I want to buy an apartment, what is the first step?
The first thing you should do is know your budget. Once you know how much you can afford, then you know what to look for on the property market. Talk to your financier and get an indication of what you can comfortably afford.

How can you help me buy an apartment ?
Firstly, we need to know what you are looking for… You can fill out our buyer form with your wishlist of features and that will help us find the right place for you! Once we have that information, you are added to our special ‘advance notice’ alerts so that you are among the first buyers to know of new listings that suit your needs. It is that simple!

What is body corporate?
Basically, it’s the organisation that is in charge of running the apartment building and handling all of the common area issues. When it comes to Body Corporate annual fees, think of it as a household “repairs and maintenance” budget, but one that is set up for however many apartments are in the complex!

What are virtual tours?
Virtual tours are essentially exactly how it sounds. A tour of the apartment in a virtual state. This allows you to view the apartment without physically going to an open home or inspection. Our virtual tours even allow you to measure areas, such as ceiling heights or fridge spaces to make it easy to see if your furniture is going to fit!

General FAQs

What is an Amazing Apartment?
As far as we are concerned, anyone who buys an apartment thinks it’s amazing. An Amazing Apartment doesn’t need to be worth $3,000,000 to be amazing. We have sold many apartments to first, second, third and fourth home buyers and each purchase is as exciting as the last because real estate is just that – exciting (and amazing!).

What do Amazing Apartments do that is different from my previous real estate agent?
Most agents dabble in all types of property sales – they will sell a block of land, a couple of houses, an apartment, a Queenslander and a duplex and all of that time they are talking to people without a common focus.

What do we do differently?
WE SPECIALISE – you’ll never get an email from us saying that we have got a block of land to sell you, or a house to show you – if you hear from us it is about apartments, and that is what the buyers love!

Where are you located?
You’ll find us in Brisbane City.
We have a terrific office at Level 2, 26 Wharf Street – drop in and see us sometime, we make a great coffee, or if the timing is right we can pour you a scotch from our drinks cart!
