INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE AGENTS IN NEW ZEALAND
Agent Finder NZ specialises in helping home sellers reach the international buyer market by vetting New Zealand real estate agents that market globally.
Due to the small pool of New Zealand buyers in the multi-million dollar price bracket, sellers often need to look for international home buyers.
Expats, Singaporeans and Australians are exempt from the recent Overseas Investment Office change of policy, so attracting overseas interest is no less important than previously. You will see below, that this a specialist field and requires the expertise of international real estate agents.
Expats especially are important potential buyers, returning home cashed up after years of being overseas. International real estate agents have the links to access this market.

The chart above is an example of a real life marketing campaign and a good demonstration of how the right type of campaign will effectively reach potential international buyers. (See more information below on international marketing.)
INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE COMPETENCE
International real estate agents need to be able to manage a complex sales process involving big money while also being knowledgeable in a number of specialist areas related to international sales.
Many real estate agents have little or no experience in marketing and selling million dollar properties to international buyers. With such an important sale at stake, it's not a time leave the outcome up to chance.
You need to make sure you have a bonafide international real estate agent who you can trust to be competent and confident in handling what might well be your most valuable asset.
SPECIALTY KNOWLEDGE AGENTS REQUIRE
Real estate agents need to be able to answer queries quickly and facilitate such things as:
- Million dollar plus deals
- New Zealand immigration policies
- New Zealand business laws
- New Zealand taxation policies relating to capital gains
- Options for exchanging money
- Stamp Duty
- Anti money laundering verification
Any enquires from international buyers need to be responded to promptly when interest in the property is at its peak, and carefully shepherded to maintain engagement.
EXEMPLARY INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE MARKETING
Luxury and high value property marketing campaigns must be of sufficient quality to ensure your property is appropriately pitched to high calibre buyers.
Whether buyers find your property through a Google search, see a brief headline description of your property, watch a video or look at real estate photographs, at each step of the marketing process, the quality must be exemplary.
The quality of photographs and any video marketing campaign must be high end, while each and every word used in the marketing package must count. Your property needs to stand out from all the competition - and your chance to grab buyer attention might amount to seconds. Every aspect of the campaign must count, so it's important to get the best international real estate agent in the field.
Understanding the world of online marketing is another must, given the internet's primacy in real estate marketing to international buyers, so you need the right people on the job.
To better understand the importance of good international real estate marketing, see the graphs on this page which show two markedly different outcomes in terms of real estate buyer reach.
