How your free appraisal will work
Should I sell or buy first?
Should you sell and then buy, or should you buy and then sell? It can be tricky to time a sale and a purchase optimally. However, there are options for overcoming potential timing issues. For example, one common scenario for those downsizing is finding the ideal property before the original home is sold. In this case, you might not have the funds ready to make a quick purchase before another buyer does. In this case, bridging finance could offer the right solution.
Are all the methods of sale still available to sell my property?
There are different methods of selling a house in New Zealand, some of which allow buyers to have more influence on the price based on competition.
If you wish to list your home for sale, you can still access sales by fixed price, by negotiation, by auction or by tender. A seller can, of course, use more than one method of sale, especially if the first attempt doesn’t get the results they’re looking for.
What are the best ways to promote my home for sale in this environment?
Online tools and resources should always be a big part of your marketing campaign. At the moment, digital marketing has become the only way to promote your home for sale.
We can use a number of digital assets for your campaign: virtual tours, emails, videos, floor plans, social media tiles and more. Your local real estate agent will be your best ally to guide you and create the best marketing campaign for your property.
How can I know how much my property is worth?
If you wish to sell your home but are unsure about its current value, the best way to get started is to book an appraisal from your local real estate agent. This will give you a precise indication of how much your property is worth.
Appraisals can now be done virtually by using video communication apps and software such as FaceTime, Zoom or WhatsApp.
From the very start Harry was just as excited as we were to enter into the journey of selling our home.
Harry showed a lot of integrity by doing what he said he would do, and in a warm and bubbly way. Harry showed so much energy too, and it was infectious - we didn’t doubt that he would sell our home for us, and he didn’t disappoint. We chose to sell our house under auction, and while we were a bit anxious about it, the support Harry and the rest of the team he works with showed us on the night was wonderful.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Harry to anyone to sell their home, he is compassionate, honest and a whole lot of fun to work with.
Very knowledgeable and helpful
Vicky was very knowledgeable about the property she was selling and went out of her way to find answers for anything she didn’t know. The whole process was explained to us very clearly and was only too pleased to come back to us if there was any questions that we needed answers to. We found Vicky really friendly and were very lucky to have her helping us through the process.
Honest and knowledgeable
Gary was very knowledgeable about the property market area we purchased in.
He had good honest opinions. It was a pleasure working with him. At no time did I feel I wasn't getting correct information. He's not pushy or opinionated. Just gave honest feedback regarding the property. He was very professional when we spoke. And when it came time to negotiate he didn't was time, the purchase was sorted in two days. He helped me with contractual details I wasn't very knowledgeable about. He made it look easy for me. He gets five thumbs up from me. I'd work with him again in a tic.
All the best Gary and thanks again for securing my lovely house in Patumahoe.
