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. 

This allows room for unwittingly poor decision-making at the various steps along the way, from choosing a competent real estate agent to 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 NZ's experience, most people are short on time and are likely to put themselves at risk by short-cutting the due diligence process.

How New Zealanders select real estate agents to sell their homes never ceases to amaze us, considering the money that's at stake.

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. 

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. 

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. 

Don't take any risks -  good decisions are far more reliable than good luck.
