Remember, super homes require special marketing, a unique approach and 100% buy-in from both you and your agent. Choose an agent based on their contacts and reputation in selling luxury homes, especially those being marketed at R5 million and over.

Do your homework to find someone who can assist with this, and get tips on how to best style your home in a way that works best for both photos and viewings. Also, be sure to highlight parts of your home that make it unique such as special countertops, walk-in wardrobes, beautiful artworks and landscaped gardens.
