CLAIRE and Simon are selling 6 Dalby St, Maroochydore, by auction today at 11am.

How long have you owned this property and where did you move from? We had our eye on this area for some time and just had to wait for our chance to buy into the location. It's so central we can walk or ride our bikes most places, whether that be the beach or the shops.

In the morning, Claire likes the living room extension to study and then in the afternoon we all like to sit out by the pool as a family.

What does it take to be ready to show? We have it down to a routine. Simon takes the kids out and I can get on with it. It's a family home but I like it to be clean, tidy and well presented. …
