How to sell different property types

Whether selling apartments, unit titles, houses, tenanted properties, deceased estates, lifestyle blocks or commercial properties, each and every property requires its own specific plan - if you want a prime sale price that is.

Having advised Kiwis about selling all property types for over 10 years, transacting over $350M worth of property sales annually, most in half the average sale time frames, we are positioned well to help.

We know there is no one size fits all in real estate, and recommend you understand the challenges of different property types so you can approach selling your type of property not only for a premium price but in a good time frame.


It is important to understand that different real estate agents have expertise in different property types which could add thousands, even hundreds of thousands depending on the property type, to the sales outcome. Conversely, the wrong choice of real estate agent could end up costing you dearly.

For instance an industrial property is very different in the type of real estate insider knowledge required from a house. An apartment where unit titles and body corporates come into play is another ball game. Understanding how to get the most money from the sale of a deceased estate could add thousands to your bank balance, while selling a rental property involves selling a house that may or may not come with tenants as occupants and should be handled the right way.

Lifestyle blocks can sit on the market unless the unique circumstances surrounding them are properly understood - our 10 years of expertise in finding the right real estate agents for people has clearly shown there is a right way and a wrong way to sell a lifestyle property.

Before you engage a real estate agent, perhaps the first one that pops into your head, or the one that sells the most properties - which contrary to what people might think is not necessarily the agent that will get you the best price - you should understand the unique circumstances of your property and do due diligence before settling on an agent.

If you're in a hurry and don't have time to read on, contact us now or phone 0800 789 532. We will compile a free bespoke shortlist of the three best agents for you to choose from for your property type and location.
