What’s the best way to sell a multi-million dollar home? Park a car with an exorbitant price tag in front of it, of course!
This is a tactic many prestige real estate agents are using, some even go so far as hiring out different super cars for listing photo shoots.
Selling the whole luxury lifestyle package- the dream home, the dream location and the dream set of wheels – is common practice to appeal to a certain type of buyer in the market for a trophy home.
When searching for a new home you want to be able to envision the way you would use each space, even the driveway and garage, and it can’t hurt to dream, right!
Here are six of the best driveway and garage goals in Australian real estate currently up for sale. Cue the house and car envy…
