FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Import information when selling your home .

 

How long will it take to sell my home?

Currently the average New Zealand home will sell in approximately six weeks and in general we will fine tune the marketing budget to this period. However that said, special or high value properties for which the number of purchasers is limited may take longer, if you are looking for the optimal price. We will discuss this with you and develop appropriate marketing strategy  to optimise the available budget. 

 

When’s the best time to put my home on the market?

The period between  15 December and 15 January would be the worst time to put your property on the home due to the fact that many people are more concerned about the Christmas period and their holiday.

If your property is affected by the seasons, for instance it has a swimming pool , is beach front or has parklike gardens, summer and early  autumn may be the right time to market those types of property. That said over winter there are generally fewer properties on the market and with that less competition, which could be an advantage.
