"From the start to a successful finish Di guided me calmly and professionally through the process of auctioning my Titirangi home. As a first time seller at auction I really appreciated her practical advice on preparation, presentation and strategy. Her video and photo work showcased the house's sunny setting and garden location to best advantage. Inside the house the spaces looked bright, spacious and versatile.
Di provided excellent updates and feedback regarding the many potential buyers at open homes and private viewings. I felt well-informed and was able to (almost) relax on auction day confident I would sell at a very good price. Selling at auction worked extremely well for me as an unconditional sale meant I could move on quickly to my new life in the Hawkes Bay.
Fantastic work Di ... thank you. You're the Wright agent!"

In New Zealand, the process of selling property is regulated by legislation. Initially, it’s advisable to get a property appraisal, where a real estate agent will inspect your house and talk you through the sales process. Once this formal inspection is done, the real estate agent will find out your preferred method of sale, an advertising strategy and give you an approximate sale price for your home based on recent sales in your local area.
Once you’ve chosen Di as your agent, you’ll need to sign a listing. It’s very important to include all the property details, discuss any changes you’ve made to the property, such as extensions and renovations, or problems you are aware of with the house, such as leaks or structural issues. It’s time to finalise your preferred method of sale, set a time frame for the period of sale (usually 60-90 days) and agree on the amount you will invest in marketing your property. You are entitled to a 24 hour “cooling off” period which your agent can explain to you.
Once the paperwork is taken care of, it’s important to focus on the presentation of your home. First impressions count, so do your best to promote your property to the best of your ability and resources. Di will be able to offer her experience and expertise to help you with some great ideas.
Professional photographs will be taken and floor plans drawn up. Your signage will be printed and an advertising script will be written for the online marketing campaign and the information brochure for buyers who visit your home. Your agent’s colleagues will also view your property at a designated time.
Di will record the details of all open home attendees, so they can be contacted later for their comments and feedback. You’ll receive a progress report the following week outlining the feedback, and receive regular updates by phone and email.
One of the most important aspects of the process from your point of view is negotiating the sale - you will be seeking the best price and conditions from an interested buyer. At this point, real estate agents will check and assist with the purchaser's finance, sale of property, building inspections and other conditions where necessary.
Once both parties agree on exact terms, a security deposit is taken from the buyer and copies of the contract are given to the solicitors or conveyancers on each side. All parties are kept informed of the progress of the contract. A sold sticker is placed on the sign outside the building to indicate that it’s no longer available.
All parties need to confirm their agreement that the sale has been finalised, so keys can be transferred to the new owner and a settlement day arranged. On settlement day, the sale process is officially completed and the new owners can move into the property.
