Choosing the best estate agent

Use  to shortlist three potential estate agents and invite each to give you a property valuation.

Make sure you check exactly what services each estate agent offers. For example:

  • Will they conduct viewings, or will you have to?
  • What marketing materials will they prepare (eg floorplans, photographs, online tours)?
  • How many relevant buyers do they have on their books, and will they tell them about your property?
  • Will they provide a ‘for sale’ board?

It’s important that you check which property portals they will advertise your property on – trademe is far the most popular New Zealand property listing site.

Check the performance of your New Zealand Real estate agent

  • How quickly do they sell homes in New Zealand? What’s their track record with achieving the asking price?
  • What is their reasoning behind the value they’re proposing to market your property at?
  • Will details of your property be shared with their colleagues? It’s good if more than one person in the office can talk enthusiastically and with knowledge about your property
  • What would they do if your property was not selling as quickly or at the price you expected?
  • Are they open at weekends? A surprising number of agents only work during the week, and perhaps do half day on Saturday, which means they are less accessible to potential buyers

How much will the property sell for?

No two properties are the same. Potential buyers will make an offer based on their knowledge of comparable sales and the emotional value they place on your home.

Regardless of what you might think your property is worth, it is the buyer that ultimately sets the price they are prepared to pay.  The method of selling is an important step towards achieving the best result.

How long will it take to sell my property?

As no two properties are the same it is very hard to give an exact time frame for the sale of your home. The Real Estate Industry of New Zealand (REINZ) publishes statistics for ‘average days on the market’ but these do not differentiate one style of property from another so are likely to be skewed by apartment timeframes etc.

To help limit your time on the market it is important to choose the right sale method and target the right buyers for your property.

All of this needs to be decided with the consultative advise of a good real estate Salesperson.  Equally important to this is good communication on feedback and progress from your Salesperson.  Being informed during the process makes the decisions you need to make as a vendor much easier.

When is the best time to sell my property?

Buyers are looking for properties at all times of the year so if your property is warm and gets good winter sun, why not market it at a time when there is less competition?

Alternately you might have a well-established garden that flourishes in spring so this will be the best time to market your home. Whatever the season, take the time to present your house well to maximise interest and achieve the best possible price.

What does it cost to sell my home?

There is no standard rate or scale of charges for buyer’s agents. It is important that you ask in advance about costs and what services will be provided as a part of this cost. If the buyer’s agent charges a set fee, you should check whether any separate charges are made for expenses.
