When it comes time to selling property in NZ, there are a few things you can do to help make the process run as smoothly as possible. Here are a few handy tips:
1) Pricing your home correctly is key. Be realistic about the market value of your property and price it accordingly. If it’s overpriced, it will sit on the market for longer, and you may end up having to reduce the price.
2) Make sure your home is in good condition. Give it a good clean, fix any broken items, and tidy up the garden. Potential buyers will be more likely to make an offer if they can see that the property has been well looked after.
3) Be honest about the state of the property. If you have been unable to pay your mortgage for a while, it’s best not to try and hide this from potential buyers as they could assume that once their offer was accepted, they would run into similar problems. You can’t expect them to fix up your financial mess.
