HOW TO FIND THE BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT TO SELL A HOUSE
Googling to find the best real estate agent to sell your property for an optimum sale price? Then you have come to the right place.
Agent Finder NZ has been vetting real estate agents nationwide for a decade, for free. Check out some of our reviews.
REAL ESTATE AGENT VETTING THE SAFEST WAY
Firstly, there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to selling a house.
Every home seller's situation, timeframe, property type, structure, legal description, location and sale price range requires a tailored approach by a competent real estate agent, one who you can genuinely rely on to look after your best interests.
Here at Agent Finder NZ, we specialise in establishing competence, good conduct and above average standards of real estate service for home sellers.
We use over 20 indicators across five categories to ensure you can depend on your real estate agent and their advice, knowledge, integrity, conduct and competence.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SELLING REAL ESTATE
From the moment you start thinking about selling a house and getting real estate appraisals, to signing a sale and purchase agreement and then meeting conditions of a sale, there are multiple legal documents to be interpreted, including clauses added or deleted. These need to be checked, signed, amended, re-signed and more.
There may also be a long list of conditions that need to be met within a tight timeframe.
Not surprisingly, most people have no experience with this kind of complex transaction which also involves a lot of money - for many people it will be the largest transaction they have ever made. Most people don't sell property every week.
This allows room for unknowingly poor decision-making at various steps along the way. Everything from choosing a competent real estate agent, deciding on the best method of sale, deciding on a price for your property, approving marketing and advertising and reaching New Zealand's largest home buying audience.
Selling a house has become more complex and legally binding, and in Agent Finder's experience, most people are short on time and are likely to put themselves at risk by short-cutting the due diligence process.
For this reason, more Kiwis are seeking out the expertise of NZ's #1 Real Estate Agent Finder. Agent Finder is designed to find best practice real estate agents for you and your property. (Agents are not all equal, licensed or not).

NO PLACE FOR LUCK WHEN SELLING A HOUSE
How New Zealanders select real estate agents to sell their homes never ceases to amaze us, considering the money that's at stake.
Selling your home with the very best real estate agent, combined with being properly informed changes everything - your sale price, the time it takes to sell and the quality of your experience.
The financial and emotional security you get with a vetted real estate agent is incomparable to the risk of gambling on an agent who put a flyer in your letterbox, a friend of a friend, or worse, one who knocks on your door promising you an amazing sale price if you list with them.
And worryingly, there are now click bait real estate websites offering consumers real estate agent searches by location, but which allow real estate agents to log in and self-promote. They are really just another directory for agents to list on. We have been advised of numerous complaints about these services and they are a risk not worth taking.
Unsurprisingly, hundreds of complaints are made to the Real Estate Authority each year for reasons such as non-disclosure, conflicts of interest, misquoting or being misleading.
There is no place for luck in real estate.
A second time on the market can end up being very expensive and is something to avoid.
It doesn't have to be like this because FREE quality real estate agent vetting exists to help manage all these risks. We use a proven process to establish who the best real estate agents in New Zealand are.
