If planning to sell a residential property in New Zealand through an international real estate agent, the property can be advertised and marketed to Singaporeans, Australians and the important Expat community living abroad and looking to relocate.

International real estate transactions need proven, confident and competent real estate agents from international real estate companies, with substantial experience, thorough knowledge and real estate project management skills.

When real estate agents target their advertising to attract international buyers, both the real estate company and the estate agents need to have a firm grasp of government policies and legal documentation essential for completing a sale competently.

For example:

  • Inland Revenue policies
  • Immigration NZ policies
  • MBIE policies for running a business or working in New Zealand
  • PIMS, LIMS, survey plans and titles, easements and covenants
  • Anti money laundering policy obligations
  • Tenancy obligations if the property is rented

There is no room for errors or omissions in any real estate transaction but for international transactions, there is added responsibility on the agent and accountability for the agency.
