RESPONSIBILITIES OF A REAL ESTATE AGENT
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 interpreted or compliance documents to be completed.
Real estate agents also help buyers to purchase your property including liaising with mortgage brokers, banks, insurance companies, councils, body corporates, Trustees and lawyers. It may be uncomplicated at your end but not so on the buyer side.
Engaging a suitable real estate agent who is strong on experience, technical knowledge and problem solving is a minimum requirement.
