WHERE TO START WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME

The first place to start when selling your home or any other property type, is with a plan.

This needs to include getting real estate appraisals, choosing a suitable real estate agent, deciding on the right method of sale and working out what the commission and fees are.

Selling a house in New Zealand is a legally binding process from signing an agency agreement to a sale and purchase agreement which include additional clauses, amendments, deletions, deadlines and conditions of sale to be met.

Getting reliable advice and doing your due diligence is something Kiwis underestimate.

 

ADVICE ABOUT THE SELLING PROCESS

Selling your home is a legal process which can be life changing, often complex, often unexpectedly.

It will include negotiating commission fees with a real estate agent, agreeing on a marketing and advertising campaign, signing an agency agreement and then a sale and purchase agreement, often with amendments. You will also need to decide the best method of sale and prepare for viewings among other things.

You will need to be sure that your real estate agent is proven competent, someone you can safely rely on to sell your house which is likely to be your biggest asset.

It surprises us how little people know about their real estate agents but still choose them to manage the sale of such a valuable asset. 

A property agent who is skilled at negotiating with buyers, is relatable, has a good conduct record and can reach the largest home buying audience for your property, location and price range is a fundamental requirement. If you need help, just ask.

There is much more to selling a house than most think, and this is why you should be empowered with knowledge about choosing real estate agents, what the real estate process entails, what risks to manage and how to save a small fortune in real estate fees.
