Selling a property in New Zealand is a legally binding process from signing an agency agreement with a real estate company to a sale and purchase agreement with a buyer. These can include additional clauses, amendments, deletions, deadlines and conditions of sale to be met. There are numerous property documents like Titles, LIMS and PIMS that need to be sought and intepreted or compliance documents to be completed.

Getting reliable real estate advice from a real estate agent who is strong on experience, technical knowledge and problem solving skills is the minimum. Find out about vetted real estate agents first or request a shortlist of agents to interview.

Doing due diligence is something Kiwis often underestimate and need help with. Ask A Question



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

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.
